The PERFECT Holiday
My GF and I were lucky enough to spend four nights in Phinda Mountain Lodge followed by four nights in Phinda Forest Lodge (we won 2 four night auctions and combined them) in May this year.
We flew overnight from Heathrow with BA to Johannesburg where we stayed at The DOreale Grande for a night. The hotel was running an American Express Card Holders promotion so we were picked up on arrival by a limo and taken to the hotel (only a 5 min ride).
I thought it was about time I shared more of my trip to Zanzibar in February.
I was there for two weeks with my girlfriend staying in three completely different areas/hotels. I have already blogged on one of them here:
But now for my experience of the LL property we used :Zanzibar Kempinski which we stayed in for five nights.
Just returned from a fantastic trip to Guatemala. This was our third trip to Guatemala and it keeps getting better. We arranged our land transportation with Elizabeth Bell's company, Antigua Tours. Elizabeth is fantastic and offers great trips in the Guatemala area. All of her drivers are prompt, efficient, and truly excited about their country. Our first stop was to Montericco; a beach town on the Pacific. It is not a tourist destination...yet. We were told that it is mainly visited by Guatemalans
Skiing Les 3 Vallees - Val Thorens, France
We have been skiing in Val Thorens, France, for a number of times. We knew the FitzRoy as much more than just a Hotel. It was a Landmark in Val Thorens. Not only was it the only 4-star Hotel in the Resort but it's the highest one in Europe at nearly 2300 m. When LL put the Hotel Le FitzRoy on its auction list, we were thrilled and we auctioned and won the package. We knew the property as a top of the line Relais&Chateaux
We had long given considerations to making a trip to Antarctica, but as we are not great seafarers, we felt crossing of The Drake Passage might not be a wise choice for us.
The Drake Passage: the body of water extending from Cape Horn to the Antarctic Peninsula. Satellite weather surveillance images consistently depict cyclonic lows of hurricane strength travel through the Drake Passage on the average of once every three weeks.under best condition, you can expect rolling seas of twelve
