Going to Antarctica was one of my husband’s dream destinations so we finally made it happen last month. For us, not only was it the trip of a lifetime, it also meant that we have traveled to all seven continents. Little did I imagine before we left that this would become one of my favorite places to visit.The Le Boreal is luxury on water and the crew was superb.
Considering how cold it was, we couldn’t have asked for better weather. This allowed us to go on the shore excursions to experience Antarctica up close. The views were breathtaking and the wildlife was amazing. I must say that the penguins were my favorites.You can read the ship’s trip logs written by the experts on their website.
We never thought when we visited our friends in Los Altos that we would discover one of the most beautiful boutique hotels we have ever stayed in.
The Enchanté Hotel is a magnificent French-inspired 19 room hotel located in the center of town. Each room has it's own theme filled with treasured antiques. The staff was warm, friendly and professional. They made us feel welcome and right at home. The Campagne Bistro served delicious food. The baked Brie was incomparable. We felt that we were staying in a French chateau in France. We can't wait to go back.
This Starwood hotel is centrally located by Union Square. Recently renovated, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I am particularly excited about the glass elevators that gives you the best views of the city.
We had such a great time in Las Vegas. Here are some of the highlights of our trip:
The Amazing Barbra Streisand Concert at the new T Mobile Arena
This is the venue where you want to see a concert. They have the most comfortable seats that are designed in a way that everyone has a great view. It's conveniently located within walking distance from most hotels.
This very modern hotel is fabulous. It has beautiful well appointed rooms with all the latest technical advances. You can even open and close the curtains with a touch of a button. Great Spa and pool area. So many special gourmet restaurants that you never have to leave the hotel to get a great meal.
Costa Di Mare Restaurant at the Wynn Hotel
This is the restaurant you can't miss when you are in Las Vegas. It's gorgeous. The service is impeccable. The food is delicious. Fresh fish is delivered daily from the Mediterranean. I particularly enjoyed the unique shrimp soup.
Blossom at the Aria
This most elegant and modern Chinese restaurant has delicious food and exceptional service. I loved the Lychee Martini. The shrimp lettuce wraps were unique and superb.
