Travel tips from globetrotting Duff Goldman

With outposts in both Baltimore and Los Angeles and appearances all over the world, Duff Goldman has done his share of traveling.

Recently the Ace of Cakes shared some of his favorite destinations and a few travel tips with Johnny Jet. He told the website that he travels four to six times a month, has been to more than 20 countries and five continents. Even so, he counts Baltimore as his favorite city.


Istanbul is his fave international city and Jerusalem's Western Wall his favorite global site.
