Have you ever wondered, what is a luxury travel writer’s dream vacation?
As a travel writer for Luxe Travel Deals I have often been asked this very question in many different ways. It usually goes something like this; What is on your bucket list of luxury travel? Falling short of an exact answer, I usually smile and simply say let me think about it and I will get back to you.
With Christmas drawing nearer, I am nestled deep in the Laurentian Mountains planning my travel stories for the upcoming year. Since I have some free time afforded to me, I would like to share my top adventure luxury travel dreams or as I like to refer to them the “Mad Mad World of Dreamscapes”.
A Canadian by birth, I have lived most of my life in one of the coldest climates on earth. Most would assume my favorite destination would be some hot tropical island destination similar to Bora Bora far away from the cold. That statement could not be farther than the truth. I have never been much for being part of the crowd, I have my own style and just like my style, my adventure travel dreams are far from assuming. They change consitently from year to year but for the moment, they are as they appear.
I think because I have written so much about the wonder and intrigue in the world of travel, perhaps, I am more demanding and harder to please than most people. I simply believe that I deserve the very best when it comes to luxury travel and I am worth it. This belief is the driving force behind what Luxe Travel Deals offers to its’ clientele and the reason that I am so proud and committed to be part of it. I suppose it is also why they have been in business for twenty seven years.
Enquiring minds wanted to know and I promised to deliver so without further adieu here is my luxury travel bucket list.
For what it is worth, its’ a mad mad world, but someone has to do it!
#1 I wish to spend a chilly night inside every ice hotel on the planet.
For the time being, I am planning to visit the Hotel de Glace in February during the winter carnival that is held in Quebec City. Whilst I am there, I want to give the Bonhomme Carnivale a great big hug! I will travel and stay for one night in the Ice Hotel. I will brave the cold for one evening and will enjoy the rest of my time frolicking in The Fairmont le Chateau Frontenac. During my vacation, I will try to track down a famous bottle of chilled ice wine to warm up the rest of this great vacation. Probably not what you were expecting to be my number one choice?
#2 I have always dreamed of spending a night in a luxury resort completely immersed underwater so I could literally swim with the fishes.
The Poseidon underwater resort in Fiji is among the worlds’ best underwater hotels and has an ever more superb underwater restaurant. I have a feeling that seafood will not be my choice of food for the night but perhaps a fillet of duck or wild deer with some foie gras may be more suitable? Most girls grow up wanting to become a teacher or lawyer, I wanted to be an oceanographer. I am not even sure I knew what that was at the time, but I think this is pretty close to fufilling that dream.
#3 Finally, my version of the seven ancient wonders of the world would go something like this.
First stop, a luxury train ride to the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, Easter Island a definite must, followed by the grand finale of an Egyptian pyramid tour. My passion for travel and history combined in the comfort of a luxury villa is a vacation fit for royalty.
Topping off each vacation with a stay at a luxury resort or hotel in each destination for some extra spa time and fine gourmet dining is my version of the perfect bucket list. My list may be small but my adventure dreams are large. I do however, know with the help of my friends at Luxe Travel Deals, I can get there one adventure at a time!
