Paris in summer… Springtime earns all of the accolades for Paris – and rightly so. Spring is one of the city’s most gorgeous times. But summer is a fabulous time to visit too, as noted in this travel clip from the Katie Couric Show (featuring Virtuoso) which I’m loving and adoring. Speed to 4:21 to hear […]
On a recent trip to Ireland, to see clients Sheen Falls Lodge and Ballyfin, followed by a trade-symposium in Berlin, I found myself in the `what-to-pack’ quandary, familiar to so many of us in the travel industry. My dilemma was a specific cocktail party and specific pleated dress I wanted to wear. But how to keep […]
“I love putting on the wellies (yes, provided) and walking onto the misty glen to ‘fly’ the powerful red-tail hawks and falcons. There are very few places left in the world where one can experience the authentic and ancient (dating date to 2000BC) sport of falconry. I love, too, the roaring waterfall views from Sheen […]
I love the bathtubs – and how they fill in 60 seconds. The beautiful Redflower bath amenities and snack baskets in the rooms (with yummy Tate cookies). I love the privacy and green of the courtyard. And the beds and pillows, so sumptuous.
Garden tai-chi in the early a.m. – the lush green of the grass, intoxicating scent of the flowers, and chirping birds. I love the peace and tranquility of The BodyHoliday. The smoothie bar – and endless arm-leg-butt-toning, spinning and yoga classes….
There’s everything to love about Laucala Island, so it’s hard to narrow down what I love most. But when pressed, I love the privacy of this Fijian hideaway. The exuberant smiles of the staff – so genuine. And the perfect balance of pampering. From the moment you’re greeted by the happy bula-bula-ing staff, there’s nothing you […]
For a few blissful days in January, I escaped the ‘polar vortex’ blanketing much of the U.S., and found sunshine. And summertime on New Zealand’s North Island and that country’s oldest, still-working sheep station, Wharekauhau Lodge. I loved the moodiness of the sky, the mountains dipping to the sea, the wind, the staff, the sheep of […]
I thought the private infinity pools (and spaghetti aux truffles) were the ultimate bliss-out at Hotel Le Toiny on St. Barth. And then came the “St Barth Blossom.” Designed by Ligne St Barth, this new (but original) flower massage features the yellow-orange calendula flower, known since the Middle Ages for its cosmetic and medicinal properties. […]
“I love the exuberance of the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort team, the peaceful sounds at night, the lights of the sky, the excitement of seeing whales…and the heart-throbbing of seeing a bear looking for food along the shore line.”
On this day, when so many are in mourning and the country, at large, is in a place of remembrance and reflection, I am so very blessed to find joy in September 11. On this day, 20 years ago, I married my best friend, my love, my life (and ultimately my business) partner, Anthony Cifelli. […]
