Turks and Caicos are some of the most beautiful Caribbean islands I have ever visited, and I have seen many. The colours of the island are surreal turquoise, bright blue, pink and purple all reflected in its translucent waters. Arrival at Ocean Club Resort exceeds all expectations. Explore
Some days I can truly say I LOVE MY JOB! Recently, having been invited on the pre-inaugural voyage of the “most anticipated ship of the year”, Celebrity’s new The Edge was a perk worth working for.Explore

When creating an itinerary for our 8-day cruise up the coast of Scotland, The Old Forge Pub and Seafood Restaurant in Inverie Knoydart was #1 on the top ten places to stop en route.There are no roads in and out. One must hike 18 km over Scotland’s many munros to get there. Alternatively, you can take a 7-mile ferry ride on the MV Western Isles from Mallaig. Or you can sail 100+ nautical miles from Oban past Rum, Egg, Muck and Canna through the sea of the Hebrides. That’s how we got there.Explore
This luxury country house on the Wild Atlantic Way on the West coast of Ireland captured my heart as soon as I landed on the website. I needed to book one night as we drove a segment of the Way along the rugged coast. Knowing we would be traveling for 7 or 8 hours a day, we wanted luxury, comfort and quiet elegance in a country setting and we got so much more than that in Barrow House.Explore
Whether heading to or from your houseboat adventure, a stop at the Boulders Resort and Spa is worth a stop, if only for the tour of the property.
On my way to Lake Powell, I stopped at Boulders for a few days of tranquility and pampering. Surrounded by lush desert landscape, the backdrop of the resort is home to gigantic mountains of boulders dating back 12 million years. Sitting on 1300 acres are casitas, (small Adobe style cottages), suites, haciendas and villas, five restaurants and a bounty of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, rock climbing, pickle ball, tennis and swimming. Two championship level golf courses have sweeping views on the Sonoran Desert landscape and listed among the finest in the US.Explore
There is something very, very special about the Oak Bay Beach Hotel. Although I was actually crashing the party (not really), I felt immediately comfortable and at ease in my new surroundings in the lobby boasting a grand piano (I wish I could play) beautiful décor, a fireplace and a view of Salish Sea.
You’ve strolled down La Rambla to where it meets the Mediterranean, after a side trip into the Gothic Neighbourhood, through narrow serpentine alleys graced by churches ten centuries old, past mansions once populated by Renaissance merchants.
We’re riding a local bus from Managua, Nicaragua to a colonial city called Granada. We pass horse-drawn carts, a forested mountain whose slopes hide a volcano.
Windswept Lake Nicaragua appears: sky-reaching church steeples, circa 1524, pastel-painted buildings with red tile roofs, snugged down on its shore.
We’re immediately smitten and we’re hardly alone.Explore
