Celebrity Vacation Spottings: June 2015

It’s that time again! Summertime and glamorous celebrity vacations truly go hand in hand. Celebrity gossip is admittedly a guilty pleasure of mine. I mean who doesn’t want to know where the rich and famous go to play during their downtime. Mix in some wanderlust and over the top luxury vacations, and you’ll be drooling to get away after reading this post. Here is a synopsis of whose been traveling this month and where for some travel inspiration – especially if you are into buzzing, trendy destinations. 

Skiathos, Greece

KATE HUDSON & GOLDIE HAWN

The skinny: Goldie Hawn, Kate Hudson & family have been vacationing on the island of Skiathos, Greece for the past couple of days. Paparazzi shots of them frolicking at the beach have been circulating. It is reported that they are staying in a villa on Troulos Beach.

GlobalNomad POV: Instead of  tourist hot spots, Mykonos and Santorini, why not go to a lesser known Greek island? There are over 200 of them! You can't beat Skiathos' gorgeous beaches (over 50 of them) and blue/greren Caribbean-like seas.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's learning to dance in the rain."

 Mykonos 

Katy Perry

 The skinny: Katy Perry is on a family vacation in Mykonos, Greece.  She is currently on hiatus from her Prismatic World Tour. She has yet to post any photos on her Instagram!

GlobalNomad POV: You can never go wrong with Mykonos in the summer… that’s if you book ahead (at least a couple of months) because EVERYONE goes here. Its THE place to party. It is best to go in September, when the tourists have already left, the kids are back in school and hotel rates are a lot more reasonable.


 Bahamas

Lady Gaga

The skinny: Lady Gaga is squeezing in a mini vacation in between her concerts with Tony Bennett. They both performed at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort last weekend and are scheduled to perform at Radio City Music Hall in NYC tomorrow. Lady Gaga has been pictured hitting the beach in a bikini, tanning, fishing and living her motto of “Work hard, play hard, work hard again, play harder”.

GlobalNomad POV: The Bahamas is perfect for a quick weekend getaway in the Caribbean for busy city dwellers. From New York, it is only a short 2 ½ hour flight to Nassau and you can pretty much go year round.

 London, Milan, Venice & Vicenza

Michelle Obama & daughters, Sasha & Malia

The skinny: Michelle, Michelle’s mom and daughters, Malia & Sasha are on a girls-only European trip. Their weeklong trip started on June 15th and ends this Sunday. Activities on the first-family agenda include helping expand girls’ education around the world, attending World’s Fair Milan Expo 2015, promoting a healthy lifestyle, visiting U.S. troops and cultural sightseeing. Not too worry, the Obama daughters are having a good time. Not only did they hit the fashion stores in Milan, they met Prince Harry and the UK Prime Minister and his wife.  

GlobalNomad POV: Who can compete with the Obama’s presidential vacations? If you take an annual trip to Hawaii, you are golden in my book. The Obama’s demonstrate that it’s OK to mix business with pleasure when traveling to faraway lands. Have a few business meetings in Tokyo, Paris or Rio? Stay a bit longer and discover the destination. Go beyond the inside of the airport and your hotel room and live a little.  


Hawaii 

Zac Efron

 The skinny: Zac Efron is currently filming in Oahu his upcoming movie, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates , which pretty much counts as a vacation. He is living the dream- diving with sharks and enjoying some of the world's most beautiful beaches, nature & scenery - making the most of his time in the happiest state in the US (fact). 

GlobalNomad POV: Hawaii is one of our favorite places in the world and a must-see place for every traveler (especially Americans)! It's the type of place to reboot and getaway from it all, without really going off the grid. You can go to Oahu or any of the other habitable islands year-round. Pick any month and you will have picture perfect 85 degree weather. Sunny with a glorious Hawaiian breeze which may or may not smell like pineapple.

 Ibiza 

Paris Hilton

 The skinny: Paris Hilton is currently in Ibiza enjoying time-off from DJing. She has been posting up a storm on Instagram. Word is she is staying at a gorgeous villa located on the hilltop of the island overlooking the Ibiza coastline. The pool is dope.

GlobalNomad POV: Like Mykonos, Ibiza is a favorite summer jaunt for celebrities and international tourists alike. Ibiza is famous for lazy days at the beach and partying the night away. Given that Ibiza attracts the most famous DJs around the world, it’s no wonder why Paris is in town.

Back in Paradise! 🙌🏻 #I❤️Ibiza

Rome, Italy

Reese Witherspoon

The skinny: Reese Witherspoon is vacationing in Rome, Italy with her mom and daughter. They have been spotted sightseeing around town and in Vatican City. Reese has been posting photos from her trip on Instagram with creative, funny hashtags.

GlobalNomad POV: You know the expression “When in Rome”! Rome is great for history, culture and architecture buffs alike, as well as foodies. This classic capital never disappoints. Spend a few days here enjoying la bella vita and then take a quick direct flight from Rome FCO airport to another European destination. The world is your oyster!

#Rome is all the more beautiful with the people you love ❤️ @avaphillippe
