{Bookish} Travel Buddies: Isla & the Happily Ever After

I wanted to come up with a way to combine my love for books with my love for travel, and thus {Bookish} Travel Buddies was born. It's quite simple, really, as I'm pairing up characters from books I've loved + the places that I'd love to go visit with them. I've hung out with the Queen of Shadows gang, went on adventures with the Winter crew, and this time around, I'm going to be hanging out with some of my favorite couples - Anna & Etienne, Lola & Cricket, and Isla & Josh

I chose these three Stephanie Perkins couples for February because (a) I enjoyed all three love stories and (b) it's my subtle nod at this month being the month of valentines. Unlike previous editions of this feature, I'm going to be bringing both couples to one location! It was fun thinking about places both halves of each pair would enjoy, and I hope you like my choices!
Anna Oliphant + Etienne St. Clair | New York
Honestly, choosing a place for these two lovebirds to visit was really easy. I really feel like they'd enjoy having a variety of activities to partake in, whether it's walking in one of the parks, visiting a museum, seeing the sites, or grabbing a bite to eat at one of the restaurants all over the city. Plus, Anna would certainly be happy about the heart of film that beats in this particular city.
Lola Nolan + Cricket Bell | Tokyo
I instantly thought of Japan when thinking about both Lola's interest in fashion, and Cricket's love of tinkering. Cricket would find all the technology and creativity in Tokyo extremely fascinating, and I think he'd leave feeling inspired to make more things. Lola, on the other hand, would love the freedom to dress however she'd like, and would frequent Harajuku to study street styles and do some shopping.
Isla Martin + Josh Wasserstein | Milan
Oh, these two! I love that they're both into art and culture; I like that it's something that they bonded over, and that forms an important part of their relationship. I feel like they'd enjoy going on an adventure to Milan together, whether they wander around the tourist spots, visit the museums, sample the food or observe the fashion.
