Explore some usual and unusual things to do in Paris with Hélène Avril, the former Public Relations Manager at the Four Seasons Hotel George V,  and now head of PR […]

  from June 18th, 2018 I am absolutely speechless these days. Sadness, pain, grief, disbelief. It is with such a broken heart that I must announce the recent passing of my husband, co-founder, partner of 27 years and chief instigator of our 2004 #aroundtheworld followsummer trip John Mountain, who faced an aggressive, unrelenting pancreatic #cancer. Only five weeks ago were we planning the next 20 years. We have so many memories. I wanted to share our very first followsummer post, January 3, 2004: bit.ly/johnandgregfirstpost This is happening so quickly for us, so quickly. We have been overwhelmed with support from our families, friends and […]

This month, I continue my reading journey throughout Europe with How to Fall in Love With A Man Who Lives in A Bush by Emmy Abrahamson, set in Austria with funnily enough, a side trip to Vancouver, and My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan, inspiring me to travel to both England and Scotland. How to Fall in Love With A Man Who Lives in A Bush How to Fall in Love With A Man Who Lives in A Bush by Emmy Abrahamson (and translated by Nichola Smalley, $15.99, Harper) is, I believe, the first book I have read set in […]

Selling U.S. Tourism in Trump Era Leaves Industry Grasping for Fixes Skift Let’s face it. Brand USA and U.S. Travel had a daunting task this week at the 2019 edition of IPW, the annual travel gathering held in Anaheim, California. Leaders of both associations had to convince the international buyers and journalists attending the trade show designed to “bring the world to America” that the country is welcoming, despite looming trade wars, travel bans, and onerous visa regulations. That’s why it’s no surprise that many of the press conferences held by national and state officials were filled with non-answer answers […]

Plan a visit to Morocco and the fabled ‘Ochre City’ of Marrakech in 2019, where behind every Medina wall, the winding alleyways give way to bustling souks filled with cotton, hammered brass, carpets, pottery, and outstanding leather choices, enveloping the visitor with a wonderful sensory overload. While you’re there, find a little luxury at El-Fenn Marrakech tucked in next door to Bab El Ksour where you’ll find bohemian meets lux meets art house in this hip and colourful riad named by Mr. and Mrs. Smith as 2018’s ‘Coolest Creative Hub’. And in our opinion, one of the best riad Marrakech has […]

As many of you may remember, last year on May 22nd, we adopted a handsome barn cat from my best friend Lucy, in part to add a bit of a distraction for the next six months of dealing with John’s recent cancer diagnosis and potential treatments. Little did we know that John would leave us just four weeks later. But I had another motive. I secretly hoped that Hastings (named for a former actor who was known for his grand and bushy eyebrows), would be present at the moment of John’s passing; absorbing his love and spirit as he left […]
