Travel Guide: Aspen, Colorado


Wednesday, September 16, 2020

Aspen has always been on my radar but growing up in Texas we always went to Colorado in the winter to ski. My first ski experience was at 8 years old in Breckenridge, then Purgatory, Telluride, Vail and Beaver Creek but Aspen was never on our hit list. We were a ski in the winter, beach in the summer kind of family and I loved that. I always questioned why people were so enamored with ...

Travel Guide: Martha’s Vineyard


Sunday, August 9, 2020

We can all agree that Summer 2020 isn’t going as planned. Thank you COVID-19. Hell 2020 isn’t going as expected. But I’m making the most of it - enter my trips to the Hamptons and Martha's Vineyard. Traveling is difficult right now and at times depressing - I was supposed to be in Spain right about now, possibly heading to Ibiza and maybe even back down to Africa alas that’s not happening. Instead I’m embracing this ...

When we visited Royal Malewane its new sister property The Farmstead at Royal Malewane had only been open a few months. This spectacular new addition to the Royal portfolio is just what the area needed, a serene lodge that still offers the same caliber of service, has Liz Biden’s eclectic whimsical style but stands out on its own with a very California ranch house vibe about it. Where Royal Malewane delivers the classic safari lodge experience, ...

The African Safari Travel Guide: Royal Malewane Safari in Kruger


Saturday, November 30, 2019

I don’t know many people who don’t have an African Safari high on their bucket list, it is definitely at the top of the bucketlist trips that you all said you wanted to go on when I took my poll on Instagram Stories earlier this year. So when we realized that we had the time and the opportunity to go we booked it. I work with travel professionals on a regular basis – did you know ...

Travel Guide: North Carolina’s Mesmerizing Crystal Coast


Tuesday, November 5, 2019

I have found in recent years that the more and more I travel the less it seems that I’m traveling to new places in my own country. Unacceptable is probably what some of you are thinking and you would be right. As much as I travel there are absolutely breathtaking destinations practically in my backyard! So when I was invited down to North Carolina’s Crystal Coast I knew I needed to go, I had not ...
