Absolutely Fabulous, London

On our recent trip to London we visited the top tourist attractions, stayed at the fabulous 45 Park Lane and dined at Wolfgang Puck’s only restaurant outside of the US, CUT. The Dorchester Collection’s 45 Park Lane did not disappoint. Located within walking distance to the top London sites and across from Hyde Park, we enjoyed leisurely strolls through many of London’s beautiful gardens.

Dreams and Magic

Disneyland Paris is a luxury for the entire family.  It’s large and expansive on 85 acres; with a great variety of rides.  It has pretty plantings; and it’s only 40 minutes by train from Paris – so there’s always the possibility of a double-destination holiday.  So gather the family and head to Disneyland Paris for a few days of fun!


Consider this.  Watching the sunrise each day is a real luxury.  Every day that we can open our eyes is a gift.

The first stop was the National Museum of African American History … Read More Washington, DC
