“To travel is to live”Hans Christian Andersen
Have you ever dreamed of traveling to India, but felt daunted by the idea? The time has arrived to explore Rajasthan, specifically the beauty of Jaipur, the fabled Pink City. Jaipur’s buildings were first painted pink in 1876 to welcome the Prince of Wales, who was later crowned King Edward VII. Spend a week on this curated adventure. A design lover’s paradise, the ultimate in shopping, design sourcing and sightseeing.
Due to the overwhelming demand, we are adding a return trip to Jaipur with an added side trip to the majestic Taj Mahal.
We start our adventure in Paris. Discover its famous Marché aux Puces (literally “flea market”) de Saint-Ouen. A bit of sightseeing paired with a delightful food and wine tour. Next, we fly to Marrakech where we will navigate the souks of the labyrinthine medina to discover their artisan wares. The colors of the tiles and gorgeous Berber rugs will blow your mind. Includes cooking class, traditional hammam and food adventure in the outdoor Jemaa el-Fnaa. Explore the beauty of Yves Saint-Laurent’s Majorelle Gardens and the recently opened Musée Yves Saint Laurent.
This port town on the southwest coast of Africa is worth the lengthy voyage. Cape Town is a remarkable city, pairing breathtaking natural sights with a vibrant cultural scene. The view from atop the magnificent Table Mountain (one of the “New Seven Wonders of the World”) are out of this world. We will enjoy the lively and cosmopolitan city, filled with walking architecture and private garden tours, wine tasting and a day trip to Boulder Beach (to see its famous penguins). We will experience Cape Town’s culinary traditions, which draw influence from Europe and Asia as well as Africa. We will finish a short drive away in the Stellenbosch wine region to discover the magic of rural South Africa while staying on a small Cape Dutch farm dating back to 1692.
“The Mexican capital is more cosmopolitan than ever, with world-class museums, vibrant street art and bustling markets.”The New York Times
You will instantly fall in love with this city’s architecture, art and food. We will be spending our week in the Condesa neighborhood at a charming, renovated 1930’s home that has been beautifully converted into a bed-and-breakfast. Each morning begins with a homemade breakfast in courtyard, where we will also unwind each evening over a glass of wine. We will visit a handful of the top museums and take a private food tour guiding us through the culinary delights of street food in the famed open markets. An additional highlight will be a private tour of the home of famed architect Luis Barragán.
