In an article for Conde Nast Traveler, model, It Girl and TV presence Alexa Chung discusses how bad she is at traveling. She also mentions her favorite destinations, and LA gets a plug. "I really loved Berlin; I was wandering around on my own, and there were a million cool cafes that were sort of half art galleries. For English people, L.A. is really cool because it just seems really American. I went to Iguazu Falls in Argentina, and that was amazing. Apparently someone who saw it said she felt sorry for Niagara Falls when she saw it." [CN Traveler]
