I can’t thank you all enough for your love and birthday wishes! As a belated birthday present, I wanted to share a few things I’ve learned and places I’ve traveled to this past year. 40 was an AWESOME year (that included the launch of V WARS!) and I can’t wait for what’s to come in 41!
Ian talks of his International Experiences
He has come a long way from the teenager who borrowed a car to go along the coast of Portugal. Ian Somerhalder is married and has a daughter now! His wife, Nikki Reed married him in 2015 and both have done some amazing projects since.
He talks about his experiences in Portugal, France, Milan, San Paulo, and Atlanta. Georgia, Atlanta is where he lived and spent 8 years being Damon Salvatore; the hunky vampire we all know and love from Vampire Diaries. He appreciated his fans in France and San Paulo for all the love he gets every time he goes there.
San Paulo is the city that gives me the most love out of anywhere I have ever been. I went over to a store there once and after talking with the authorities I found out that 27000 people had shown up just to say hello. It was an amazing experience and I have never seen anything like it.
That’s a lot of people and rightfully so!
In the IGTV video, Ian gives us some very considerable tips
He talks about the importance of leaving our phones behind and experience the greatness of the places we are in. Furthermore, he advises to keep our luggage lightweight and to keep our vitamins stocked. To him, it is important to keep yourself healthy because you should be on your most alert self when experiencing the new lands.
Ian sure does love his travels and enjoys them to his fullest. He gives us some airplane tips too! Along with the vitamins, he tells fans that they need to keep themselves hydrated. Water is a must if you are traveling and you can fill and re-fill your bottles on all airports and layovers.

Me and this @wheelsup8760 #KingAir350i sky baby/workhorse. My “air” office and the greenest and most efficient plane in the sky. When I was a little boy flying in my uncle’s Cessna I found my love of flying and my love of the sky. I always dreamed of flying around the world and now for my work, I live in the sky. Some are short flights and some long, but they are a great many in number. Mostly to see you all! I’m shooting #VWars right now and I’m so bummed that I missed hanging this week in Florida with my @wheelsup8760 and my @textronaviation family at the #nbaa18 (National Business Aviation Association) @nbaaphotos this year- I WILL make it next year. I can’t wait to see the innovation and artistry of these amazing machines. We have a hard and long road to push in the sustainability realm of aviation both on the business and commercial sides. Revolutionizing efficiency and fuels is the way of the future… it’s a MUST for our planet. I live on this thing so me and my team feel so safe and grateful to @textronaviation for building them and @wheelsup8760 for having such a huge fleet of them- giving us access to move around safely and efficiently.
So, are you an Ian Somerhalder fan who wonders of traveling? Well, Ian gives us the essentials and now, you can be on your way and travel, Damon Style.
