Last night La Silhouette Restaurant and Carlos Melia Recommends, hosted a private summit of LGBT Media minds in New York City. Friends and colleagues, with whom I have travelled around the world, reporting about travel, hotels, restaurants and more. Lovely evening enjoying the touch of Chef Matthew Tropeano, and the brilliant attention and warms of both Sally and Tito the owners.

And myself Carlos Melia.). More events to come. !!!! Great to share the evening with them, learn about their latest travels, exchange experiences, tips and contacts. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
GPS Carlos Melia onboard TAM Airlines NYC to Florianopolis | Brazil | New adventures, take me to new destinations and continents. This time I crossed all the way from Asia to North America to catch my TAM Airlines flight from New York City to Florianopolis (see video above). Still in transit at Rio de Janeiro International Airport, waiting for my connecting flight to my final destination, Florianopolis, where I will be taking part of a Press Trip which will include Florianopolis, my favorite Lagoa da Conceicao, Parrot Island and Ponta dos Ganchos. The second part of my trips is focussed to the 29th IGLTA 2012 Annual Convention, where I will take part of their mentors program and also participate at the Media Trade Show.
