From Rags to Riches, A Review of Singapore's High-Class Haven, The Fullerton Hotel

Singapore is the epitome of a rags to riches story. This small country at the tip of the Malaysian peninsula is a tale of triumph over adversity to become an uncontested success story. Smaller in size than New York City, this quaint country was ruled by the British, occupied by the Japanese during World War II, handed back to British rule until forming an independent union with Malaysia. Singapore then went its own way and struggled from its independence in 1965 and through the 1970s with rampan

Glamping Down Under, Luxury Travel in Australia with Built in Social Distancing

Glamping Down Under, Luxury Travel in Australia with Built in Social Distancing As the first half of 2020 has taught us, the human tribe is resilient. We have learned that when life gives us lemons that we make lemonade and to focus on what we can do versus what we cannot. Part of that learning is our newfound appreciation of the great outdoors. To be out in nature as a way to have an adventure, to exercise and breathe in fresh air and to restore our spirit and all the while social distancing.

An Outback Safari Adventure in Australia's Gawler Ranges

For some of us, at a time like this, to think about travel could be considered frivolous. But we know that although the days ahead may be tough, we will get through this. Our lives will never be the same, but we will get through it. And when we do, we will mourn, reflect, and then celebrate and enjoy life again. Part of the way we enjoy living again is to experience new places and to renew our love of travel. Until then, we can still dream, plan and even research what’s next for us and to refin

The Slow Travel and Lifestyle of of Korean Villages

Many times, when we travel, not only do we pack for the trip, but we also pack a long checklist of things to do and see once we get to our destination. This must-do checklist drives us to rush from one place to the next and cram as many experiences into each trip as possible. Sadly, our focus becomes completing the list, and at the end of the holiday we are often unsatisfied knowing that by doing too much we did not pause to truly savor the destination. In South Korea, a few hours southeast of

Leeds Castle, England's Medieval Masterpiece and Quintessential Castle Holiday

Once upon a time. These are four words that we all remember from the bedtime fairy tales of our early years.

Today there is one such castle that lies deep within the English countryside, complete with drawbridges, moats, and beautiful

Mother Nature's Crown Jewel, Exploring New Zealand's South Island and a stay at The Blanket Bay Lodge

Mother Nature's Crown Jewel, Exploring New Zealand's South Island and a stay at The Blanket Bay Lodge Paradise is a cliché term bandied about when the natural landscape in front of the viewer is beyond any other descriptor.

New Zealand Luxury Lodge & Billionaire's Retreat, The Helena Bay Lodge

When money is no object, we can be unbound in our pursuit of ways to enjoy life. Today, not even a flight to outer space is beyond our reach. When this ability is applied to creating a resort, you’ll most likely find it in a beautiful corner of the world, secluded and away from the masses.

Living Well at the Graflicher Park Health & Balance Resort, Germany's Uber Exclusive Health Clinic

Luxury is about so much more than the stuff that we can buy. It is about our health, quality of life, and being around for our loved ones. Taking care of our health is paramount to enjoying life itself and particularly, as we age, finding ways to live a healthier and longer life becomes even more important. At the turn of the last century, an Austrian scientist, F. X. Mayr, discovered that much of our quality of health and issues are directly tied to what we eat or, just as important, don’t eat.

Australia's Willie Wonka of Wine, Chester Osborne of d'Arenberg Wine and the McLaren Vale

Australia's wine industry is ripe with visionaries, mavericks and colorful characters with a bullheaded commitment to creating world-class wine. They are after all farmers and, by definition, toil season after season, crop after crop, and harvest after harvest in hopes - and often failures - of creating liquid gold from each uncertain vintage. Arguably South Australia’s most colorful winemaker, literally, is Chester Osbourne of McLaren Vale’s d’Arenberg Wines. Known for his flamboyant shirts tha
