I'm La Carmina 😈 I'm a full-time travel & fashion blogger, journalist, and travel TV host/expert on programs like Bizarre Foods, The Doctors, NBC's Better Late Than Never. AMA!
I'm La Carmina, an alternative travel and style blogger. I've been blogging professionally for over 10 years on my La Carmina blog, with a focus on Goth, Tokyo Harajuku and youth subcultures around the world.
I've been to over 60 countries to date, including my dream destinations of Iceland, Morocco, India, Cambodia, New Zealand, Cuba, Korea, and of course Japan. Ask me anything about traveling, blogging, "influencer" work, press trips, etc!
My LaCarmina blog articles tend to have a dark, offbeat focus. I recently volunteered with punk bands in Myanmar, visited Dracula’s Castle in Romania, drank absinthe at HR Giger's bar in Switzerland, and partied with Japanese mistresses at a Satanic bar in Japan.
I published three books with Random House and Penguin, and write about travel for various publications including CNN, Business Insider and Sunday Times.
I've appeared as a host for travel TV shows worldwide, including Discovery (Oddities), National Geographic (Taboo, Roam), Food Network (World’s Weirdest Restaurants), Travel Channel (Bizarre Foods, No Reservations promo, Could I Live There) and international networks (NHK, Canal Plus, Pro Sieben, Norway TV). I also have a travel video series filmed by BorderlessMedia.tv.
La Carmina has been featured in major media (including a recent BBC Radio One show about Goth culture, and numerous magazine covers), and speaks at travel/fashion events worldwide (World Tourism Forum, Experience Bucharest, NY Fashion Week, PechaKucha Tokyo, Luisviaroma Italy, PRSA Travel and Tourism and more).
