Father-Son trip booked to New York City! They are staying at The Intercontinental Barclay, one of my favorite NYC hotels due to location and additional amenities I can extend to my clients - room upgrade and access to the club lounge where they have delicious breakfast, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. @interconbarclay#travelinspiration#travelmore#virtuosotravel#luxurytravel
Thank you to everyone for the amount of kindness you have shown me over the last few days (and years, really). I am BEYOND overwhelmed!! It is such an honor to be able to plan your travels and I am excited for all that is to come, Major Travelers!
This pic just about sums up my emotions right now 💁🏻♀️
I can’t wait for my sweet clients to be ending their EPIC babymoon in New Zealand with a 4 night stay at @matakaurilodge (👆🏼). Matakauri’s rooms, as pictured here, perfectly frame the gorgeous lake + mountainscape in Queenstown and are the perfect place to take a nap after all the *extreme sports*. I’m already plotting my return & am so excited for my clients to cross New Zealand off their bucket list!

HOW TO BOOK THE BEST HOTELS - On a recent @vacationmavens podcast, my friend @stuffedsuitcase and I talk about some of our top tips for booking the best hotels for your family trips. You might want to SAVE this post because I'm going to share some of these tips below:
1. Read blogs and Instagram posts to see what hotels and neighborhoods are recommended by others that you follow and trust.
2. Open Google Maps and STAR all of the attractions you want to visit and the hotels that have been recommended to start to narrow down the neighborhood where you want to stay.
3. Use sites like Booking.com to see what hotels are in the neighborhood with the features that you want (e.g. free WiFi, breakfast included, pool, etc.)
4. Look at the details on the hotel website including square footage of the room, bed configuration, and hotel amenities.
5. Read RECENT visitor reviews on TripAdvisor in depth -- don't just look at the star rating.
6. Debate if it is worth using hotel or credit card points if you have them (sometimes credit card points are a better deal.)
7. For upscale hotels, consider booking through Amex Travel or a Virtuoso travel advisor to get extra perks.
8. Book direct with the hotel and make personal requests (e.g. high floor, away from the elevator, make up the pull out bed in advance, allergy-free room...)
9. Call the hotel the morning of arrival to see if an upgrade is available.
10. Don't forget to sign up for the hotel loyalty program for discounts and perks like free WiFi.
Don't forget to SAVE this post using the bookmark up above. P.S. This picture is my view from my terrace at the @theedgeh2o in @visitmadison last weekend (high floor, away from the elevator!)

🛳️ Bermuda Special 🛳️ Pink-sand beaches. Turquoise waters. Tangerine sunsets. Come aboard on Norwegian's award-winning ships including the newest, Norwegian Encore, and discover a kaleidoscope of colors in Bermuda. When you arrive in paradise, you’ll have three full days to explore. So make it a family beach day on Horseshoe Bay. Grab a snorkel and dive into an underwater world filled with tropical fish or discover what’s left of the Montana, one of hundreds of shipwrecks encircling the islands. When you come up for air, you can do a little shopping as you stroll colonial landmarks. Then sail into the moonlight on a relaxing catamaran ride — and follow the stars instead of a schedule. Too much to experience in one day? Good thing you’re here for three.

Who else has already lost their 2020 zen?
Last year I heard the expression “you’re like a dog with a bone” (in only a mildly complimentary tone) so many times that I thought in 2020 I’d do a self awareness check. What I discovered is that I:
• Have high standards 🤷🏾♀️
• Above average email reply rates👩🏾💻
• Might be a tad bit of a micro manager although I prefer the term particular 👀
All of these attributes make me excel at my job but it also means I can wreak havoc on those who don’t abide by the same ethos that I do. So, this year I vowed not to get bent out of shape over things I can’t control and not to jump in to do something faster/better/efficiently when it just doesn’t concern me.... easier said than done! 😬
My new plan is to try out guided mediation with @stephozzy at the @terranceosbornegallery to see if it can help me mellow out a bit. If not, it may be time for some travel therapy!
How do you get zen? Share your methods👇🏾!
2 whole months of Christmas with 75 Christmas trees and more than 30,000 Christmas lights. Visiting America’s castle during the best time of the year did not disappoint.
We stayed at @thefoundryhotel and they made sure we showed up to the Biltmore in style. We took the house Tesla to the Biltmore and in case we needed a little extra Christmas magic, the turn signals were sleigh bells. I love a hotel that knows how to turn a transfer into an experience.
On the shores of Lake Lugano is the Hotel Splendide Royal Lugano. It's a lovely Belle Epoque hotel with a view that can't be beat! This was my first trip to Switzerland and I loved waking up to this each morning.
