On the road again! After a bit of teasing, I’m going to announce 3 of the 6 cities I’ll be visiting in the next months. Perhaps you can join me on my adventures? Keep reading to see where I’m headed.

(Above is a bonus shot from my newly pink hair photoshoot.)

1) Las Vegas. I’m the Guest of Honor at AniMegaCon on August 17, 2012 (LVH hotel). This new Japan/anime convention promises to be a giant — with a maid cafe, fashion show hosted by yours truly, and a whopping $10,001 prize for the Masquerade Best in Show winner.

For info about the location, tickets and guests, visit the AniMegaCon site and Facebook. Hope to see you in Sin City (Aug 17-19)!

2) Maui, Hawaii. Aloha, palm trees and beaches! In late June, I’m embarking on a social media press trip sponsored by the Maui Visitors Bureau. My Mexico film crew is joining me, so we’ll be making professional travel videos for you.

I’ll share every step of the journey on my social networks, so be sure to add me on Twitter and Facebook. I went to Honolulu as a teenager, but this is my first time in Maui. If you have trip suggestions for me, please let me know in the comments. (Creative Commons pic above by Rosa Say)

3) Columbus, Ohio. I’m honored to be speaking at the PRSA Travel & Tourism Conference on June 5th. My panel is called “Lights, Camera, Video: Travel News Online and Mobile — the Latest Ideas.”

It’s wonderful to be recognized by the travel media industry: I’m happy that my videos and blogs are getting a positive reception. I’m grateful for supporters who “get” my personalized, web-based reporting — and I’m excited to share my experiences with other travel professionals. (Pic above from PRSA)

On that note, Johnny Jet interviewed me about my Travel Style. I profess my love of the Hello Kitty airport, Goth cruises, and Tokyo’s Odaiba (home to Rainbow Bridge, a pirate-themed restaurant and a cat petting zoo).

Can’t wait to embark on these globe-treks. Thank you, readers, for your support; it makes my work possible.

If you use smartphone apps, let’s be friends on Instagram (lacarmina) and Pose (lacarmina). These also post to my Tumblr (where I’ve moved my Song of the Day feature).

Guess what? I’ll be visiting 3 more international cities in the next months! I’ll spill the beans next week, and tell you how you can be involved. If only I could bring my cat with me…

    While you’re in Columbus,  you have to get Jeni’s Ice Cream!  They make fantastic organic, gourmet ice creams, sorbets, and frozen yogurts.  Some of my favorites are their honey pistachio, wildberry lavender, Riesling poached pear sorbet, Bourbon buttered pecan, and goat cheese with Cognac fig sauce.  They also have a new Magnolia mochi flavor out that I can’t wait to try! 

    They have a location in North Market which is an excellent place to get lunch – the North Market hosts a variety of local farmers, artisan foods and independent restaurants.  Try the handcrafted ravioli at Pastaria Seconda, they’re to die for, or the Rustic Loaf at Omega Artisan Bakery, light and crisp and sweetened with dried fruit, an excellent on-the-go snack. 

    High Street in general and the Short North in particular are a really great area to browse, there are all sorts of interesting little shops and restaurants.
