Arriving into India has always been extremely exciting for me, given that I was born and raised in the country. Sure enough, this time as well, I was eagerly looking forward to arriving “Home”! As soon as I got off the aircraft in New Delhi (yes, not at the arrivals hall), I was greeted by a smiling face holding a sign with my name on it (this was my first stint with the luxurious services offered by Eastbound) - he assisted me with customs and baggage - a service I was extremely grateful for after the long flight.
Colombia has become a hot destination for American tourist. In the last decade, Colombia has seen a resurgence in tourism and we are all the happier for it. The sites, sounds, tastes, and culture of this beautiful country far exceeded my expectations.
Spirit of the Masai Mara (SOTMM) is an exclusive 10 suite safari lodge situated on a private conservancy outside of the Maasai Mara. It is a family owned property that began operation in 2015 in cooperation with the local Maasai community, and is now being managed and marketed by Sarova Hotels & Resorts (as of 01APR 2018). Sarova is widely regarded as a leading hospitality brand in Kenya and has been a long-time partner of KAI. I was very excited to have the opportunity to visit this new property in October and see what our partners at Sarova could do with a boutique luxury lodge! I was not disappointed….
I had the opportunity to travel with Hapag-Lloyd Cruises on-board the award winning MS EUROPA2 on a voyage from Bermuda to NYC this past October. I was very excited and had high expectations before boarding the ship knowing it has been awarded the highest rating 5-star + The world's best cruise ship according to the Berlitz guide. The MS EUROPA2 did not disappoint! Everything from boarding to disembarking was flawless!
This past October I had the good fortune of leading an incredible Business Development Trip to Uganda with our partner Wild Frontiers....
I had the opportunity to visit Borneo with Destination Asia Malaysia in November 2017, obviously I jumped at the chance and I’m so glad that I did! Our trip to Borneo was the highlight, but it was bookended by a stay in Singapore & Kuala Lumpur as well. This report is going to focus on the Borneo experience, as I’ve traveled to both cities previously, however I must say that both warrant a stay from your guests.
India is not a destination for the faint of hearts- it is a country filled of depth, passion, and the unexpected. It is a place that is guaranteed to provoke a reaction. It is a country that if done right- will be a magical, life changing experience. A memory that cannot be duplicated. For the first-time traveler to India- a trip to New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur (better known as the Golden Triangle) is an absolute must- and that is where I traveled with Eastbound.
The UAE is a perfect getaway for families, adventure seekers, individuals on business, shoppers, or beach lovers- there is something for everyone. With year-round sunshine, it’s a great destination for guaranteed beautiful weather. Thanks to Emirates and their many flights to Dubai a day, also Etihad airlines flying direct to Abu Dhabi, these destinations have become a very common layover for travelers continuing to Africa and other parts of Asia. But what travelers do not realize is that there is enough to do to make the UAE more than a layover but a truly memorable vacation destination.
