My latest on Forbes.com
Anyone who says bright color isn’t a balm for the soul hasn’t been here. The garden air at St. Barth's most resort-like hotel smells of flowers mixed with sea salt, and small turtles occasionally amble onto the path to eat a dropped blossom.

My latest on Forbes.com—pure Robinson Crusoe dreaminess
This rustic-luxe lodge is the embodiment of Robinson Crusoe chic. There is no one here. You want sugar-soft sand ten feet from your cushy, fine-linen-clad queen-size bed? It’s here. A week without wearing shoes? Done.

My latest on Forbes.com: a love letter to one of my new favorite cities in the world. 
It may not have the easy sex appeal of beachy, sunny Sydney, but Australia’s biggest city has charm in spades.

My latest on Forbes.com
The 37-room hotel hotel, in the bucolic Eastern Townships not far from Vermont, has just the right mix of country charm and worldly style.

My latest on Forbes.com
“Sailing is one of those few sports in which people of any age, sex, ability and background get thrown together and come out a tight team,” says Kay Anthony, a co-owner of Ondeck Sailing, whose boat I joined as a complete novice.

My latest on Forbes.com: who wants to get lost with me?
"Life in the fast lane pushes people to far-flung corners of the world in search of stillness, solitude, pitch-black skies and empty beaches and forests."

My latest on Forbes.com. Yum!
This is the culinary capital of a country that was doing local and organic long before those ideas became buzzwords and emphasizing fresh, clean flavors with a subtle Asian accent. It’s not that hard to eat pleasurably for a week here and still fit into your pants.

My latest on Forbes.com
For more than 25 years, the top-notch operator has been making the thrills of surfing safe, comfortable and available to almost anyone who can afford it, and making surf trips palatable to partners and family members who don’t want to play on the waves.

My latest on Forbes.com: beaches, surfing, riding, and ceviche tostadas. Go.
The rugged but romantic new 17-room inn will make a particularly picturesque corner of the country’s Pacific coast accessible to couples or others who want to stay in high-luxury, local-feeling surroundings, without renting a big villa or casita.
