Five Vacation Getaways for the Luxe Lover

Luxury means so many different things to different people. For some luxury is as simple as having something done by someone else that one might normally be required to do without any assistance at all. For others, luxury implies decadence on a grand scale. And still for others, luxury means “best in class” –immersive experiences...

Spain: The Ultimate Road Trip

Spain: The Ultimate Road Trip

Ten days. During a normal work week, that seems like an eternity. In other circumstances, that same length of time can pass in an instant. With that in mind and a partner-in-crime in tow, I set out to make the most of a whirlwind 10-day journey, from the southern reaches of Spain up to the...

Out on the Road Spain | Costa del Sol

Out on the Road Spain | Costa del Sol

Costa del Sol literally means “Coast of the Sun”, a name which feels quite fitting after spending any time in Málaga, Marbella and Torremolinos, the most popular destinations in this sun-soaked paradise that might best be described as Spain’s answer to Côte d’Azur. Noted for its temperate climate year-round, Andalusian charms and glamorous inhabitants, the...
Out on the Road Spain | Granada

Out on the Road Spain | Granada

  The allure of Granada essentially lies in the city’s unique history as told by its dominant architectural legacy which hearkens back to a time when the Moors controlled Spain. The famed La Alhambra Palace and the neighboring El Albaicín quarter with its Moorish dwellings seemingly untouched by time are among the most compelling sites...
Out on the Road Spain | Gran Canaria

Out on the Road Spain | Gran Canaria

Just a short flight from mainland Spain, Gran Canaria is an island so distinguished by its chameleon-like qualities that it appears enchanted to the uninitiated. In Las Palmas, the island’s capital, you’ll find broad stretches of beach and as much urban bustle as you can expect to unearth in any region of the island. Meanwhile,...
Out on the Road Spain | Valencia

Out on the Road Spain | Valencia

Valencia is a city of subtle but powerful appeal. It eschews the razzle dazzle and fast pace of its slightly larger sister cities, Barcelona and Madrid, in favor of a more carefree vibe. While the city’s pristine beaches are busy they are not overly burdened with sun-seeking bodies. Likewise, the city as a whole projects...
Out on the Road Spain | Costa Brava - Girona

Out on the Road Spain | Costa Brava – Girona

    Spain’s Costa Brava is equal parts wild and wonderful. In Girona in particular, wide swaths of beach meet a coastline unspoiled by not a single hi-rise hotel or condominium building. In their stead, you’ll find a rambling town and an impressive legacy of Greek and Roman ruins to explore. Next door, you’ll also...
Out on the Road Spain | Barcelona

Out on the Road Spain | Barcelona

Beaches, beautiful people and nightlife. That is immediately what comes to mind when I think of Barcelona. Rivaling Berlin as the party capitol of Europe, Barcelona has the benefit of better weather and a seaside location – two cards it plays like trumps in the game of attracting tourists. That said, there’s more to life...

For The Love Of Spain: Me, Madonna And A Town Called Ronda

Hola! Okay so before I begin to wax poetic about my love affair with Spain, here’s a little truth. Yes, I have broken a limb and been hospitalized in Madrid for nine days (and yes the limp is finally gone thank you very much). And yes, it is also true that I was once evacuated...

For The Love Of Spain: A Boy Behaving ‘Badly’ in Barcelona

I said I would have not one drink on my first night in Barcelona. Fail. I said I would not go clubbing after dinner on my first night in Barcelona. Fail. I said I would get a good night’s sleep on my first night in Barcelona. Fail again. All of the sanctimonious pledges I made...

For The Love of Spain: VIP Marbella-Rock Stars, Royalty and Michelle Obama

Nothing says ‘Living Wells’ better than three simple letters in the modern English alphabet – V.I.P! Likewise very few destinations in Spain do ‘V.I.P.’ like Marbella, the crown jewel of Costa del Sol. Hence the reason that Marbella and I get on like a house on fire. Seriously! For those who are not aware of...
