The Grampians

Whether you are looking for adventure or enlightenment, one can awaken their senses and experience life unleashed at Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia. With endless panoramic views of mountain ranges, we are dreaming of the majestic wonders of this ancient and rugged landscape that is dotted with surprises around every turn. Here one can journey back thousands of years with a hike through the endless valley while encountering water cascading over cliffs at Mackenzie Falls alongside some of the oldest and most prolific art in the world, Aboriginal rock art. We look forward to days enjoying a taste of some of the oldest and most mysterious wine varietals, like our favorite sparkling wine eponymous of the region, while watching the sky turn pink and purple as the sun sets over the mountains.

Marram Montauk

There’s nothing like the sounds of the ocean to soothe your soul, which is why Long Island’s Montauk is the perfect barefoot-luxury antidote to city living. We are longing for an escape at Marram Montauk to watch the sunrise as waves crash onto pristine sand beaches, before revitalizing the mind and body with meditation and yoga – the ideal way to start a summer day in the relaxed surf town. As soon as the sun’s in the sky, surfers head out into the swell to catch some waves, while the cowboys at heart meander through picturesque woodland trails and across white sandy shores at Deep Hollow Ranch, the USA’s oldest working cattle ranch. We look forward to evenings spent outdoors, gathered around the firepit, drinking locally produced crisp white wine; exploring Montauk’s buzzing food scene, with some of the East Coast’s finest fresh lobster available at The Lobster Roll, and old school American diner food at John’s Drive-In; or gazing up at the stars at Montauk Observatory or camped out on the beach.


The gateway to the upstate cultural and creative corridor, Troutbeck is a serene, historic estate hotel located just outside the city in the heart of the Hudson Valley. With a storied 250-year history as a favorite retreat for romantics, naturalists, humanists, and poets, today Troutbeck is a restorative getaway offering the very best of the region. Troutbeck’s rich history is complemented by a variety of on-property recreational pursuits, such as foraging, falconry, miles of hiking and biking trails, and a stunning pool and tennis courts, giving visitors the opportunity to explore and engage with the remarkable natural estate. ​Troutbeck’s deep appreciation of its landscape and the surrounding region is further exhibited in its newly revitalized hyper-local culinary offerings. We look forward to hitting the tennis courts on summer mornings, admiring the property’s thought-provoking rotating art exhibits, wandering the stunning gardens with a cocktail in hand after a farm-fresh dinner and relaxing by the pool with not a care in the world.
