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!
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

When you need to slow down and de-stress, it is time for a relaxation vacation at the Dominican Republic’s Zoetry Agua Punta Cana. This rejuvenating resort will artfully fulfill your need for serenity in a luxury nirvana offering unparalleled tropical beauty nestled on a stunning white sand beach. During my visit, this amazing wellness resort resonated deeply within my soul and offered me a Zen-like sanctuary where peacefulness filled my days and mind.

Norway has gotten so popular as a travel destination (partially due to the success of Disney’s Frozen) that tourists are flocking to the fjords! And which such dramatic scenery, it’s no wonder! If you are looking forward to a visit to Norway, here are a few Norwegian customs and etiquette rules that you might find helpful on your trip.

Just the word “Tahiti” conjures up images of crystal clear, turquoise water that beg you to enter, over-water bungalows that beckon, and a tropical paradise that breathes romance.
I just got back from staying at the St. Regis Resort in Bora Bora, which epitomizes these images, but also boasts service, cuisine and enchantment for anyone celebrating a romantic moment. The over-water bungalow suites are spacious and well-designed with an enormous open shower,
Los Cabos is a rugged beach destination ringed by mountains and desert, located at the southern end of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. It’s composed of two towns, with Cabo San Lucas located on the southern tip and its sister city, San Jose Del Cabo, located slightly to the north on the Sea of Cortez. With it’s easy access from the U.S., it has been a beloved tourist destination for many years, offering a variety of activities and accommodations ranging
Stay on a private island near Tahiti on a week-long business trip? Yes, please! Sometimes I really love my job… I just returned from a Classic Vacations meeting for their President’s Circle travel agencies (of which Andavo Travel is a proud member), held at The Brando.
The Brando is Marlon Brando’s luxury resort on French Polynesia’s beautiful private island of Tetiaroa (30 miles from Tahiti), which is surrounded by a sparkling lagoon. You can only access the island
Tundra, cold, ice, snow, and wind – I experienced all of them on my trip to Churchill, Manitoba in November. The polar bear sightings made it all worthwhile.
Our expedition began with a flight into Winnipeg and an overnight stay at the very convenient Sheraton Hotel at the airport. The next morning our charter flight left early and whisked us to the windy and freezing Churchill, where we were met and escorted onto an old bus that
I recently had the opportunity to travel to Dubai and Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), to attend the Virtuoso Chairman’s Event. The UAE was established as a country in 1971 and is located in the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf.
Dubai has undergone a rapid transformation—from a desert located, pearl-diving culture, to one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Today, Dubai is a tourism, aviation, real estate, and financial services hub and
