A few months ago I went to the Van Gogh Immersive exhibit that is currently touring the country. I enjoyed being surrounded by the artwork and feeling as though as I was part of the painting. Since then, I’ve kept an eye out for similar immersive exhibit options, and I recently learned about Arcadia Earth. While I haven’t had a chance to check it out, it’s absolutely something I want to check out next time I’m in New York City (the first location) or Las Vegas (recently opened second outpost).
One affordable plan can protect an entire year of trips: business or pleasure, short or long, domestic or international.
As a ’tween in the 1990s, I remember desperately wanting to eat at Planet Hollywood to see all the pop culture memorabilia on display and maybe catch a glimpse of a celebrity. The entire concept seemed so cool to me, and I have vivid memories of my mom, grandmother, cousin and me waiting in line for a table at the Planet Hollywood in Orlando, Florida. I smiled to myself to see a bit of that nostalgic restaurant will be on permanent display in Las Vegas.
So the hustle and bustle of the holidays is officially behind us. Even this year, when we didn't travel to visit family for Thanksgiving or Christmas, there were still modest family dinners to plan and prepare; decorating to do; goodies to bake; presents to purchase, wrap and mail; cards to write and send out. These activities are part of every holiday season, pandemic or not, although more gift-giving had to be done through the mail or other delivery services.
From the moment you step onboard Air Tahiti Nui’s Tahitian Dreamliner, you will be transported to The Islands of Tahiti. The French Polynesian carrier considered every detail to awaken its passengers’ senses, creating the feeling you are already on the Islands while 30,000 feet in the air.
Today I sat down to write our family's annual Christmas letter, the one that goes out with our cards to friends and family this time of year. On a whim, I pulled up last year's missive and read through it with a mix of emotions. Some of it seemed so long ago even while I realized that I'd written it less than three months before the "normal" world I described in it would be altered forever by the worldwide pandemic. How casually I mentioned going to plays and concerts; visiting friends and welcoming others into our home; celebrating holidays, birthdays and weddings; traveling near and far.
