During my recent trip to London with a few other Andavo travel advisors, I was able to stay at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel at Park Lane. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by the friendly and attentive staff into their cozy lobby. The fireplace was roaring and kept London’s spring chill at bay.
Before we explored the hotel, we had the chance to visit the Wallace Collection, a national museum in a historic London town house, only about 1.5 miles away
This time my travels took me to Madrid, Spain for a week. I spent six nights at The Westin Palace, a hotel commissioned by the king of Spain in 1912. The location of the hotel was perfect, close to Retiro Park, the Prado Museum and Puerta del Sol, so was the perfect starting point to walk around the city.

Ever since I first heard about Un-Cruise Adventures, (one of my esteemed Virtuoso suppliers) I knew it was something that I had to experience. It became front and center on my bucket list for active adventure cruising. As a wellness travel advisor and because I am a bona fide travel info junky, I immediately enrolled in the coursework to become an Un-Cruise Adventures Certified Adventurist. My sense of intrigue and desire deepened as I delved into learning about this style of adventure cruising that ventured along the shores of Alaska, the coasts of Costa
I was definitely excited to join Andavo’s recent educational trip to London – it had been ages since I’d been and I very much looked forward to getting reacquainted with the city.
While our three days were packed, we had just a bit of daylight in which to fit some additional site inspections. I had met the lovely Victoria White, Assistant Director of Sales for The Dorchester Hotel and 45 Park Lane, the prior week at an event in Chicago, so
I just got back from a stay at the Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire in England. This is the most amazing hotel, a lovely country manor with all the amenities that you expect from Four Seasons! It is a perfect place to begin or end your trip to Great Britain or a weekend retreat from bustling London, as the property is only 35 minutes from Heathrow, 40 minutes from Southampton, or an hour from London.

I just returned from a trip to India where I visited Delhi, Agra and Jaipur – together referred to as the Golden Triangle. Delhi is the capital city of India and it’s divided into two parts – Old Delhi and New Delhi – and is a mixture of the old world with the new. Agra is the home of India’s most famous monument and one
Last month, I had the chance to stay at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Lake Tahoe over a weekend. This is the most beautiful resort in the Sierras, in my opinion. Despite its name, it is not located in Lake Tahoe, and doesn’t even offer a glimpse of the lake. It is at an altitude of almost 7,000 feet and is nestled into a forested hill. This property is 15 minutes south of Truckee, where you can listen to live Jazz
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas. Since my husband and I are not big gamblers, and were doing a quick getaway without our young children, we wanted somewhere that felt clean, calm, and relaxing. We chose the perfect property!
How cool is the wall in their Sky Lobby?!
The Mandarin Oriental is one of the few hotels in Las Vegas without a casino and all the noise and indoor smoking that go along
