LIFE IS HARD – OUR BED IS SOFT

SERENDIPITY

It has been many long years since I craved luxury, if I ever did. My mother used to tell people I didn’t care about “that stuff” … even when I was young. I was surprised that she had noticed because it was true. I wanted things that were interesting and different, but luxury never entered into it.

In this part of my life, we live in a home that is more than enough for our need. It’s a bit too big, really. It contains twice as many rooms as we need and too many stairs. But it’s comfortable (excepting the stairs). It is sufficiently isolated so we can use it as a hideout for two not-s0-sociable people who do not crave close neighbors. A friendly chat by the mailbox is enough.

insight Wanderlust

Traveling has the benefit of getting to know a lot of people. People with different backgrounds, people from different countries, people with different ideas. If you travel frequently you might have come across some of the following types of traveler:

Sunset Providencia

  • The budget traveler

Living on a strict..often on a daily budget. No extra expenses are allowed. Usually, they have a very clear idea on where and when they wanna go and what they wanna see. Good budget planning skills but might miss out on different things due to less flexibility.

  • The solo traveler

Exploring alone.. He shows up out of the blue and disappears as if Harry Potter puts on his invisibility cloak. He is usually very spontaneous and has no fear of spending time alone.

  • The traveling couple

Those guys putting their relationship to the ultimate test. Eat, sleep, hike, spend every second together.

  • The „need a buddy“ traveler

When I decided to visit Bali, I knew I had to experience a private villa with a pool. As a luxury traveler, I try and search out the best luxury in the world. Kayumanis sets a gold standard when it comes to providing luxury villas. From 24 hour butler service, private pools, high tea, gourmet food, to the level of service they provide – it is all 100% luxury.

One of the best things about booking a private villa is that it is just that, private. It is not the same as booking a hotel room – it has a door and you walk in and there are two buildings and a pool. It is like having a house, but at a resort.

In one building you have this amazing outdoor style living and dining area with a kitchen. You have a TV and…

serendipity-1

The Norwegian Escape is just 16 months old and has a home port of Miami, Florida. Part of the Breakaway Plus Class, the Escape can hold a staggering 4,200+ passengers plus its 1,700+ crew staff. In so many words, this is a big ship.

If you have ever cruised on an older ship before, the Escape is going to wow you with all of its modern updates, sleek designs, the number of activities available, and how it has become a foodie destination at sea.

Cruising is just one of the ways I like to travel. For me, cruising is about taking it down a notch, relaxing, having amazing food, sleeping in the same bed for a week, unpacking and staying put, being able to explore a couple different places without having to do all the work of flying and shuffling to hotels, and really just enjoying my time on the…
