Luxury Travel Blog Network: June Roundup

Luxury Travel Blog Network: June Roundup

It’s that time of the month again: Luxury Travel Blog Network roundup here!

I’m currently in Miami, visiting E.’s hometown and showing him where my mom grew up (we also hit Key West, Palm Beach and Delray Beach, so more on those trips to come soon). We’ll hop right to it, taking a peek at what some of our fellow Luxury Travel members have been up to this month, including safari in South Africa, the perfect weekend in Paris, and advice on how to send your kids on international travel.

Luxury Travel Blog Network: May Roundup

Luxury Travel Blog Network: May Roundup

Wait, it’s June already? The year is speeding by, as always. Deep breaths. Let’s get right to it!

This month’s Luxury Travel Blog Network saw Mrs. O Around the World fly Business Class on Qatar Airlines from Doha to London. (Lucky, lucky girl.) If you’ve flown internationally in Business Class, you’re basically spoiled for all other travel forever. (And I can only imagine how wrecked you are after tasting First. I once flew on a private jet for a beauty press trip, and it was the most glamorous thing in the history of mankind.) Qatar Airline’s First Class Lounge, by the by, looks ridiculously posh.

The Wauwinet Hotel in Nantucket: a Coastal Escape

The Wauwinet Hotel in Nantucket: a Coastal Escape

Nantucket.

Doesn’t the very word conjure up images of money and summer and blazing white sand and the foamy sea?

“I worked myself to the bone in Nantucket last winter. And it’s so flashy and loud! Impossible place to relax,” said nobody, ever.

When E. and I were trying to decide where to spend a few idle days in Massachusetts, Nantucket immediately sprang to mind. I’ve been dying to go there for years, and once we discovered there was an amazing Relais and Chateaux property called The Wauwinet on the island: ’twas done.

Greetings from Duxbury, Massachusetts!

Greetings from Duxbury, Massachusetts!

Hello from Duxbury, Massachusetts! E. and I are here visiting his mother, and we’re staying in a rambling old farmhouse that overlooks the bay: it’s absolutely gorgeous. My photos are few and I’m up against the clock with book edits, so here’s a sneak peek. This is a picture of the Boat House, as seen from our massive Kennedy-esque lawn.

Luxury Travel Blog Network: April Roundup

Luxury Travel Blog Network: April Roundup

How has the month of April sped by so quickly? It was one of the first months in recent memory when I literally didn’t go anywhere. Luckily, I have two fun trips on deck: Boston and Nantucket next week, and Delray, Miami and Key West in June!

For the time being, though, I’ve had to live vicariously through my fellow members of the Luxury Travel Blog Network.

Mrs. O Around the World had the most eventful month, with trips to the Maldives, Dubai and Paris to celebrate her birthday! Lucky girl, eh? I’m dying over how blue the water was in the Maldives. Yeah, that looks like paradise.
