The Land of Smiles : Thailand

Earlier this month I had the fabulous opportunity to travel to Thailand. I could talk about my experience for hours. Our trip was full of unique activities, bright colors, fabulous hotels, and lots of sweet elephants. We worked our way from Bangkok to Chiang Rai, from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai, and then finished on the picturesque beaches of Koh Samui. I left with a love for Thailand as a land and as a culture. 

For travelers Thailand has a bit of everything. Whether you are looking for constant entertainment in a city that never sleeps, a picturesque beach with turquoise blue waters, or a cultural experiences that will be in your heart forever. Thailand is the perfect place for the curious heart of a travel lover.

Hotels we stayed at : Anantara Bangkok, Four Seasons Tented Camps Golden Triangle, Four Seasons Chiang Mai, and Four Seasons Koh Samui.

Pasta is for Lovers :: Jon & Vinny's

I love spending the day in Los Angeles. You can pretty much count on LA to encompass these three things at any given time of year : great weather, traffic no matter what, and a hip new restaurant. This past weekend we took it upon ourselves to not make reservations (which I highly suggest you do!) and pop into Jon & Vinny's to experience the newest addition from Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo. These two chefs entered the scene with their first restaurant "Animal" just up the street on Fairfax known for a manly menu full of bacon and every other form of meat imaginable with no substitutions granted. Unlike Animal, their newest addition proved to be quite friendly to vegetarians and food lovers of all types.

The most difficult part of the experience was trying not to order EVERYTHING. With an array of homemade pastas and beautifully crafted pizzas, it's hard to choose between the perfected classics and the innovative new comers. Helen who operates "Helen's Wine Delivery" will join your dinner table and guide you through her elegant selection of wines mostly coming from France, Italy, and California. Dining with a man who has the restaurant Animal on his mind, pizza with grilled Niman slab bacon on top known as Sunny's Favorite was an obvious must. I'm not one to put bacon on everything, but if I were it would taste something like this! Their special, a salad with arugula, peaches, and local burrata cheese was so fresh and delicious it ended up being the most memorable part of our meal. Next we had to try the White Lightning , mostly because I thought the name was so cool and also, I love jalapenos on a pie. Dessert was a serious masterpiece. So do yourself a favor and order the espresso soaked Tiramisu. And if you are smart like the diners next to us, you will also take one to go.. because you aren't going to want to wait til next weekend to have it again!

I look forward to returning to try some perfected classics like the six hour bolognese along with the ricotta and egg yolk ravioli. Maximum Occupancy of this place is 45, it's small, kindly dressed, and friendly.  Staff members also wear these words "Pasta is for Lovers," which pretty much had me from the start.

Like a Dream :: Laucala Island Resort, Fiji

So a picture says a thousand words...

I think that saying applies well to this private island resort in Fiji. The rain forests, perfect beaches, sustainability practices, privacy, layout, cultural immersion, and beauty of this resort is unlike any other. The property is all-inclusive and guests enjoy delicious food grown on the island, refreshing cocktails, and activities like snorkeling, kite surfing, and even an hour ride in a submarine to see the magnificent marine life that surrounds the island's shores. I love that after people stay here they walk away proclaiming it's the best place in the world.
