The Globetrotting Bride

As a single and thirty-something woman, I’m always fascinated by stories about how people find their happily ever after. Today, I was happy to hear from fellow travel PR maven Lyla that she is enjoying newlywedded bliss courtesy of

Lyla and her new hubby David clicked back in ‘06 over Turkish tapas and wine at West Village eatery Turks & Frogs.

Turks & Frogs: A date at this West Village eatery led to matrimony for travel PR maven Lyla

“I knew he was smitten,” she says, “because he let me tell a two-hour home-improvement project story without any interruptions.”

Two years later, David proposed by presenting Lyla with a leather duffel bag loaded with travel accessories and gadgets, a tote with a ring inside, and a note about going on lots of honeymoons together.

Now, Lyla is sharing her nuptial and travel expertise on her new blog, The Globetrotting Bride ( With great tips for everything from eco-friendly wedding gifts to romantic destinations, the site is a great resource even if you’re not a bride-to-be.

Lyla and David’s story comes along at a time when I’m slowly dipping my toe back into the online dating pool. They were married on August 31st – the anniversary of my first date with the only guy to become a long-term boyfriend. Looks like fate is continuing to tell me that cyberspace is a romantic frontier worth revisiting.
