Where The What Longs To Go
We may have missed the boat on winter travel plans this year but we’ve put together an aspirational list of three places we’d like to go in 2017 if money and/or time were no object.
Around the World by Private Jet 2017
The World’s Greatest Treasures & Legendary Places
24 days from $79,950
Sure it’s practically the price of a Tesla but who’s up for a breathtaking journey on a private jet around the world to explore cultural and natural treasures that have inspired and captured the imagination of humankind for centuries? Highlights include: climbing the terraced steps of ancient Machu Picchu, the underwater splendor of the Great Barrier Reef, Easter Island, the “Lost City” of Petra, the Taj Mahal, Angkor Wat, and a safari in Africa to name a few destinations.
What to Bring: The Weekender
Traveling is made easier with the right accessories from our partner Cuyana. We’re ardent fans of their premium quality, ethically sourced classic clothing, leather goods, and accessories. The Weekender which is zippered and made from canvas (good for the rain) and the elegant pebbled leather travel pouches will add a layer of civility to your adventures and both can be monogrammed for a more personal touch.
Yoga For Bad People
YOGA FOR BAD PEOPLE is a yoga based company that hosts yoga retreats in beautiful locations around the world but doesn’t adhere too strictly to the rules. These yogis believe in having fun through a combination of yoga, physical activities, and nightlife designed to rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit minus any deprivation.
What to Roll: Rimowa Luggage
As frequent travelers, we’ve tried and tested many luggage brands during our time–from Tumi to Hartmann, Brics to Loms, Swiss Army, and even Samsonite. But none compares to Rimowa‘s elegant, ultra lightweight, polycarbonate luggage. Our favorite line is the Salsa Air, the lightest of the line and easiest to maneuver and pack. Quite simply the best cases we’ve ever owned.
The What‘s Gina Pell took her first trip to Iceland last August and vowed to return to see the Northern Lights (not visible during summer months). There are many tour companies that offer packages to see this phenomenon but it’s just as easy to plan your own trip a la carte. You’ll learn your way around Reykjavik in a few hours and driving around Iceland is easy so we’d definitely recommend a DIY experience (Do Iceland Yourself). The best time to see the lights is during the dark full nights from mid-September to April.
