I spent this past weekend at Parco San Marco, a beautiful beach lifestyle resort in Cima di Porlezza, Italy to celebrate my birthday and welcome new beginnings. Read on for my travel diary below.
Over the weekend I went to Mallorca for a quick getaway and because I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to summer. While it’s been cooling down everywhere else, it was hot and toasty on the Spanish island. Whether you’re looking for a romantic vacation to get away from it all or an exciting nightlife-filled getaway, Mallorca has everything.
I went to Oahu for the first time last year and all I could think about was how can I get here again. The answer – airline miles! Thank goodness for them. My friend and I arrived into Kahului airport and rented a car at night. I suggest getting a flight that arrives while there’s still sunlight because seeing the island from a window seat thousands of miles up in the air is spectacular. We headed to Kihei and had a super late dinner at Sansei Restaurant & Bar. Maui is a very quiet island compared to Honolulu & Waikiki. Bars & restaurants shut down early and Sansei seemed to be one of just a few bars open til midnight or later. It happened to be karaoke night at Sansei and 50% off late night special time!
We arrived into NYC on a Friday evening and immediately started looking online for places to eat. We decided on one only a few blocks away called Secara, a Columbian restaurant serving fine Columbian cuisine and then tried to visit some popular rooftop bars only to find that there was an insane waiting list to take the elevator up. I was amazed at how every block was lined with an endless number of restaurants, shops & cafés galore. Everything is literally at your fingertips.
Just an hour from Geneva, Samoens is a village in the French Alps in the southeastern region of France. It’s known for being a popular ski resort, but during the summer Samoens becomes a different kind of pristine paradise with its epic mountains and floral displays. A bit of history, this village was famous for its talented stone masons who were even called upon by Napoleon to work for him. Below is part what I did, where I stayed and what (organic beauty) products I used:
