Skiing in Morzine and Avoriaz, France

I truly believe the silence is what I love about winter. Traipsing through the snow-covered hills of the Vallée de la Manche just outside the Morzine ski resort in the Savoie Mont Blanc region of France, we couldn’t hear a thing except the crunching of show under our feet. In my opinion, this was the most luxurious ending of a long weekend spent skiing in Morzine. Jumping into a 30°C pool at our hotel, La Bergerie, right after was pretty fabulous as well.

Skiing in Morzine and Avoriaz is really why the crowds make the journey. Less than an hour and a half from from Geneva airport, Morzine is the perfect short ski holiday for the Brits. We left Heathrow at 7:00am and were in Morzine by 11:00. […]

Two days in Moscow

Anyone versed in The Three Sisters, Russian playwright Anton Chekhov’s work, knows the passion Olga and Irina have in getting to the big city. “To Moscow, To Moscow, To Moscow”…”Quickly to Moscow”…not to be there is a life “without poetry, without meaning.” What is it about the Russian capital that was, and is, so poetic that, without visiting, life would have no meaning. Luckily, I had the chance to spend two days in Moscow to discover why it invoked such passion from not only Chekhov, but also Dostoevsky, Pushkin, and Tolstoy.

When the stalwarts of Russian literature heap praise on a city expectations can run high. I am glad to say that Moscow was not a disappointment and everything I thought it would be – luxurious, […]

Small Cities of Kentucky, USA

I may have been birthed in New York and bred in Pennsylvania, but, in another life, I know I was born with a Kentuckian soul. Handling a horse by four years old and drinking bourbon by forty might not be the only requirements for feeling that Kentucky spirit race through my veins, but I think it puts me at least halfway there.

Heading back to the airport after a week exploring the state, I have truly fallen for the small towns of Kentucky. Each one of the following is only a day trip from Louisville or Lexington, but imbued with its own identity, food and folklore, all brought together by one commonality, Bourbon! I wasn’t prepared to learn so much about my birth nation’s history, and […]

A Long Weekend in the Savoie Wine Region

Let it be in your stills and in your storms,
Fair Lake, in your cavorting sloping sides,
In the black pine trees, in the savage rocks
That hang above your tides;
Le Lac by Alphonse de laMartine
Most of you have probably never heard of Alphonse de Lamartine – the French poet enchanted by the Savoie Wine Region. He was not only a poet who loved this area, but  a political force who spearheaded the abolition of slavery and the death penalty in France. The “Lac” he gifted with its own poem is Lac Bourget which sits in the middle of the Savoie Wine Region and is the largest lake in France. After exploring, the region with her châteaux, Michelin stars, charming towns and, of course, the local wines, you […]

Traverse’s Three and Samsung Photo Competition

In July, I was invited by Traverse to participate in a photographic campaign with Three UK and Samsung Mobile using the fabulous camera on the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

I snapped this very friendly face at a restaurant in Chinatown and, no, he was not on the menu!

Only 50 influencers were invited to click photos around London or anywhere they may be in the world. The final photos were all displayed at The Herrick Gallery on Piccadilly for the public to enjoy.

It was a privilege to be one of the 50 chosen and I now can’t believe how good a phone camera can be!
