Mindful & Intentional is brought to you by Idenati
I met Carlotta back in 2009. At the time, we were both college students, me at New York University, and her doing a study abroad in New York all the way from Italy. Today, Carlotta is the founder of Lust For The Sublime, a luxury travel website that she created to document her extravagant and wide-ranging travels around the world and to inspire others to get out of their comfort zones and seek out the sublime in their own lives. Enjoy!
