Europe in the Summer

European Beach Dreaming


It’s hard to deny the lure or the European summer vacation: longer days with lighter evenings, fresh food, hedonistic living, cultural insights and the simple joy of a true change of scenery. For this summer vacation we went to Europe and visited an incredible hotel which has been remodeled, I enjoyed it so much that I looked online for a similar remodeling and found I’m lucky that I can mentally travel through my clients to various spots throughout the summer, however, in a perfect world, I’d be a different spot each week, myself. Below is a visual list of some of the spots I’m currently researching and dreaming of. Not surprisingly, they’re all properties on the beach…

Grounded but Always Inspired

January 2014


Ushuaia in Argentina

For the past few weeks, wheels have been grounded for me as I’m expecting my second child at the end of the month. However, working in the world of travel and luxury hotels, I am constantly reminded of the  beauty and allure of the treasures found beyond home. Through my research and daily toil, I am inundated with imagery that makes me swoon, not to mention reorganize the order of my ‘where next bucket list’.  It’s also another reason I love to Trip Plan. If I can’t be off, out and about, then I definitely want my clients to be and will relish the opportunity to ensure they do it just as I would – and sometimes, even better.



The Red Bicycle in Rio

Right now I’m researching a trip to Argentina, Anguilla and Tokyo – all of which offer stunning landscapes, fabulous hotel options and the chance for a memorable vacation. Here are a few images that have crossed my desk lately and feel worth sharing, if for no other reason that to inspire you to begin planning your next trip.
