BFF therapy with John Ladd in town from NYC. Our friendship started freshman year at Boston College and continued through simple and big life moments, including walking me down the aisle to my husband. Wonderful to get some of the wedding party back together. Angela Melzark Chris Janie Peterson Roshan Rajkumar Vitae Collection

The spectacular solar-powered over water pool villas at @patinamaldives feature floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors allowing the villas to be opened to the elements on all three sides.

I am thrilled to announce Thailand is reopening for vaccinated US travelers starting November 1st.

Now is the time to experience the exciting new @capellabangkok which celebrated its one year anniversary earlier this month.

Every accommodation at Capella Bangkok features an outdoor terrace with a daybed and panoramic views of the Chao Phraya River. I also love our 7 spectacular riverfront villas with expansive outdoor gardens and private pools. Absolutely stunning!

What happens when you reunite with a group of friends you first met freshman year of college (1989 at Boston College) on a summer day 32 years later? You realize the ❤️ has more than stood the test of time and is stronger than ever. ☺️

With Europe back in demand, Austria should be at the top of your radar. Some of the best travel experiences in Austria are outdoors. Fall is the perfect time to visit the wine country in Wachau - just one hour from Vienna - for a wine tasting during harvest time when the countryside turns golden with the fall leaves.

If the setting of The Sound of Music is on your bucket list, Salzburg and the snow-capped Austrian Alps are a must see. Of course the highlight later in the year must be the spectacular Christmas markets in Vienna and Salzburg!

My Vitae Collection partners at Exeter International are the experts in creating bespoke travel experiences for travelers throughout Central and Eastern Europe.

Here’s a video from last night at Helios greek restaurant here @patinamaldives.

The setting on the beach and the views of the ocean are incredible. A very special night with friends. ❤️

#patinamaldives #patinahotels #vitaecollection #luxurytravel #wanderlust


I needed to take a break from posting videos from @patinamaldives and share some exterior and interior photos of my water pool villa for my travel advisor partners to share with their clients. Here you go! Beach pool villas and restaurants pics up next!

#patinamaldives #patinahotels #vitaecollection #maldives #luxurytravel


Enjoying some quiet time at 8am at the Fari Beach Club here at @patinamaldives enjoying pool time before the other guests arrive. The ocean water is the same color as the pool water here!! OMG ❤️❤️

I fell asleep immediately after dinner tonight realizing the 24 hour travel day from NYC to @patinamaldives had caught up to me.

However, I woke up randomly at 12:30pm and walked out to my outdoor over-water pool villa deck to take a video of this magical and serene moment where the only audible sounds were the ocean breezes and the ocean waters crashing all around me while I look out at the stunning full moon horizon.

Trust me this has been a stressful week This moment however has washed all of that away to make me thankful of these small gifts. Thank you Patina Maldives! Special moments indeed ❤️.

Sorry for the delay in my first post from Patina Maldives. 24 hours of travel time slowed me down and I feel asleep immediately after dinner,!

However, I randomly woke up at 12:30am to discover this incredible moment of ultimate peace and serenity with the full moon, ocean breezes and ocean waters crashing around me while I’m standing on the deck of my water pool villa looking out into the horizon.

I just realized the glass doors composing the fromt wall of the villa facing the ocean and both side wall glass doors all completely slide open so you are 100% connected to moments like this with nature. Incredible!!

Daytime pics sand photos coming tomorrow. ☺️☺️

Just boarded my Emirates Airlines flight to Dubai en route to visit the amazing new @patinamaldives.

Stay tuned over the 8 days for photos and videos of my visit. Do bears snorkel? We’re about to find out! 😀

Thank you Patina Maldives, Fari Islands team for this great experience. See you in 21 hours!

Leave Nothing Unexplored


Do you remember a travel experience that changed your life?

For me, it began back in June 2007, when I moved from my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts to New York City to embark on a new career in the luxury hotel industry. For the first time, I started traveling outside the U.S. to global destinations like New Zealand, Asia, Europe, Central America and elsewhere around the world.

For more than a decade, I’ve built a reputation in the travel industry for unparalleled passion, reliability and the highest standards of quality representation on behalf of elite hotel brands such as Raffles Hotels and Resorts and Capella Hotels and Resorts. I’m proud to say that providing industry-leading representation is a responsibility I take personally.

Let’s start our journey together..
