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 ...

Finding Serenity in South Africa at The Farmstead at Royal Malewane

The Travel Diaries: Escaping to Park City with Utopian Luxury Vacation Homes

Sunday, March 18, 2018

I grew up with parents who had very different opinions on how they wanted to spend vacations, thanks to their split differences we spent winters on the ski slopes and summers at the beach. While I grew up going to Colorado, I started skiing in Utah when I was at Sundance a few years ago and finally understood what the hype was about. I’ve been back a few times but this recent trip took my appreciation ...
