#Amangiri took my breathe away — literally. The approach to the resort is down a long, winding road with expanses of desert and huge sandstone boulders on both sides. The rocks, sculpted by wind for millions of years, resemble pieces of modern art. By contrast, the style of the buildings is minimalist and rectilinear, as if not wanting to compete with the natural terrain. Huge floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room, dining room, and all guest suites frame picture-postcard vistas. #Utah #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

Inflight Comfort Tip: Look at the seating chart on the airline’s website and double check that information with the Seat Guru website. Exit rows provide more legroom and comfort, but some exit row seats don’t recline and some have fixed arms that make the seat slightly narrower. I usually learn everything I can online and then call the carrier to confirm. #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

If your readers want to enjoy #Bermuda like a local, they should visit during one of Bermuda’s public holidays. It’s the best way to feel the culture, eat the local food, and enjoy the people. Example: Take part in a Good Friday tradition by flying a Bermuda kite from the beach, and eating cod fish cakes and hot cross buns. #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

Sindabezi Island Lodge, located on an island in the Zambezi River, is the exact opposite of a hotel covered in corporate logos. We arrived by boat and were shown to one of five open-sided thatched suites sited on the river. Netting enclosed the bed, but the “room” was open on one side providing my husband Richard and me with a 180° view and a priceless sense of connection with the river. #VictoriaFalls #Africa #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

#Antarctica has no government and management of the continent is handled by individual nations under the terms of the Antarctic Treaty. However, there are several private firms which facilitate travel to Antarctica. Travel experiences are available that range from the expeditionary to the luxurious for the two kinds of Antarctic visits — sea voyages and overland travel. #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

When I think about dining in #Canada, I visualize cozy meals in country settings, beautiful fresh seafood, and lots of organic produce. I suggest that if you’re headed to Toronto, Montreal, or Calgary, you take this best restaurants list with you: http://bit.ly/2e9V61g #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

#Monterey is a mixed bag. At first glance, it’s not very exciting. The commercial district is chockablock with the predictable chain stores, and nearby lodging and dining options are also ho-hum. So why am I writing about this Central California city? Because the flip side is that Monterey is home to some of the best food, most authentic wildlife experiences, and interesting history in the state. You just have to know where to look — so read on. #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

What makes Shell Beach the perfect spot for a #summer #vacation? Great weather and a relatively laid-back atmosphere. Further north, coastal fog can be a problem, and in some areas to the south, beach resorts are packed in cheek-to-jowl. But this area, which is the upmarket resort area of Pismo Beach, feels quiet and secluded. #ShellBeach #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

My expectations of #Delfin1 were sky high, but — in fact — the ship and our spacious cabin were even better than I had imagined. Big floor-to-ceiling windows allowed us to enjoy the view from the king size bed and from a sitting area. Outside, our private deck extended the length of the cabin, and two chaise and a table and chairs offered an even closer view of the #AmazonRiver and surrounding jungle. Ample closet space, high-thread-count bed linens, and fresh flowers were also very welcome. Did I mention that there was a shower on the deck in addition to the one in the bathroom? Ooo la la. http://bit.ly/2c82wl1 #Peru #AuthenticLuxuryTravel

#Christchurch accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes, but Otahuna Lodge is easily the most #romantic. If you’ve ever longed to star in a BBC romance (think Downton Abbey), this is the Christchurch accommodation for you. #NewZealand #AuthenticLuxuryTravel
