Travel Guide: A Non Bachelorette Party Take on Nashville

Friday, October 23, 2020

Being a fairly well-traveled girl I have a keen desire to see as much of the world as I possibly can - finding myself in hidden villages in France,  lost on a tuktuk in Thailand, exploring a remote island in the most obscure of ocean enclosed places and seeking solace in beautiful countryside’s in Hungary, Germany and England  - yet I’ve neglected my own country these past few years. As a child I grew up ...

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

It was. A perfect balance of activity and relaxing. Since we went in late August and early September Cape Town was out of ...

Finding Serenity in South Africa at The Farmstead at Royal Malewane

Thursday, December 19, 2019

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, ...
