All of them! Where do I even begin? I just returned from ten days exploring Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park with my husband and 20-month-old son—truly amazing to have one of his first words be bison as he is staring out the window at a herd of them grazing amongst Mud Volcano.
My husband’s birthday is New Year’s Eve, so we love to do an annual big celebratory trip. This past birthday we went to Switzerland and the highlight was The Park Hotel Vitznau, a Virtuoso property, on the banks of Lake Lucerne. It was amazing and completely made the trip. A small hotel with only 47 rooms, the owner lives on the premises and attended the New Year’s Eve festivities which culminated with the most intimate and spectacular fireworks display I have ever seen.
I could go on and on! Call me and let’s have coffee and talk travel.
