Resort Luxury in Tahiti – The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora

"Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen" - Benjamin Disraeli   When I first started writing about luxury hotels and resorts, I created a bucketlist of the places I most wanted to visit and experience. From time to time over the years, I would glance at the list and wonder when I would make it to The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora. Well, I recently had the fortune of visiting the world famous property, and it was quite worth the ... Continue Reading

Luxury at the Arch – The Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis

"And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul" - Unknown   There are few things more exhilarating than getting on a plane, and traveling to a place you've been thinking about visiting for some time. Not long after I started to post my travels on social media, I stumbled upon the Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis, and thought it a quite lovely property in America's heartland, a city I'd never visited. So, I put it on my travel bucketlist, and checked on it from time to time ... Continue Reading

Capitol Luxury – The Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C.

"People don't take trips -- trips take people" - John Steinbeck   Our nation's capital is replete with grand and stately, sometimes historic hotels, so when I recently visited, I had some difficult choices to make. But when I began to investigate further, it became quite obvious that a luxury travel blogger's trip to Washington, D.C. is not complete without a visit to the incomparable and highly regarded Four Seasons Hotel Washington, D.C. Location Its six stories rising tall in ... Continue Reading

Florentine Luxury – The Four Seasons Hotel Firenze

"Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life" - Anna Akhmatova One of the many beauties of Italy is that there are so many different cities and regions to visit, making Italy - in my opinion - the most beautiful destination country in the world. But the flip side is that it can take awhile to visit certain cities, and in my case, it took many years before I could make the time to visit the City of Florence; and wow, was it worth the wait. And as is my habit, I thorou... Continue Reading

Texas-Sized Luxury – The Four Seasons Hotel Houston

"It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end." - Ernest Hemingway   In this sense, I'm always on the lookout for the next journey - the next place. The older I get, the more I realize that to be static, is to hasten death. That may sound extreme, but you only need to look around you to realize that constant movement, learning, adjustment, and taking on new challenges, are all traits of people who live their best and fullest life. I ... Continue Reading

Mile High Luxury – The Four Seasons Hotel Denver

“To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair.” - Walker Percy, The Moviegoer This quote perfectly captures how I feel about travel - that "the possibility of the search" is what energizes and moves me to always seek new destinations and experiences because of how profound my life is likely to be changed. In my younger years, "the possibility of the search" was unknown to me, and I'm thankful every day that it now ... Continue Reading

"Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow" - Anita Desai I've had the pleasure of visiting some of the most beautiful places in the world, and I've learned quickly that these places truly change who I am, how I view the world, and how I make decisions about how to spend my time in the future.

Best Luxury Resorts in Dallas – Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas

“I wandered everywhere, through cities and countries wide. And everywhere I went, the world was on my side.” - Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy  Most of us lead frenetic lives - phones, emails, meetings, carpools, dance recitals, soccer games, lunches, dinners, family commitments, and all of the other common responsibilities and obligations - which have slowly, at first, filled, and perhaps overtaken our lives. But travel allows us to create quiet and peaceful experiences that nourish ... Continue Reading

Lisbon Luxury Hotels – The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

“We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.” - Pascal Mercier, Night Train to Lisbon This quote really speaks to how I feel about the city of Lisbon, Portugal.  During a recent trip to Europe, we decided to visit Lisbon for two days; and it wasn't nearly enough. The city is magnificent, truly a gem hidden in the long list of visit-worthy European ... Continue Reading

"Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly." - M.F.K. Fisher The experience of dining with others is one of the most primal and quintessential human behaviors, and I've long considered it one of the most important components of the human experience.  We are social, communal, loving, and seek to enhance our personal experiences through the act of sharing food with others. Many of our fondest memories are created through the sharing of ... Continue Reading
