With leisure travel season upon us, now is the perfect time to revisit a previous post about the best luxury suitcases. Your luggage creates a strong first impression on your fellow travelers; the people you seem to always randomly run into at the air terminal; the hotel staff; and even the private jet crew. You wanna travel like a boss? Bring the right gear. Besides, a great suitcase just makes traveling more fun – and what better time for fun travel than now? To ensure that you’ve got the latest info on strong, smart, and chic luxury luggage, here’s a short rundown on what’s new since our last post.
The Luxury Photo Journey is an occasional series here at Dandelion Chandelier. Sometimes we find ourselves in a place so stunningly beautiful that words fail us. In those instances, we’ll let the images do (most of) the talking.
Where will April take you? Where should it? Spring is in the air, and a visit to a cosmopolitan city seems to be in order: view wonderful art, stroll in a park, and have a meal or a cocktail at a chic outdoor cafe (we’re thinking Paris, Toronto, New York and Brussels). Want something a bit more bucolic? You could head to Japan for the cherry blossoms. The Netherlands for tulip season would be lovely, as would springtime in Savannah, Georgia. Feeling the need for adrenaline-fueled adventures? Namibia and Botswana are temperate in April, as is Morocco. Fiji has excellent scuba-diving and some gorgeous new resorts. It’s all waiting for you. It’s April! Let’s go.
The rites of spring in New York City are many and splendid. If you’re planning a visit, or you live here and just need a nudge to get out and enjoy springtime in your magical city, here are 11 only-in-New-York and only-in-spring activities that the luxury class will be pursuing in the coming weeks (we set out to share our top 10, but there were just too many good ideas to limit them arbitrarily). Take these tips from the insiders, and you’re guaranteed to have a fine time.
In the depths of winter, sometimes the spirit needs a reminder of the glories of spring. Surely that’s why so many of the world’s best orchid shows happen in February and early March. For those who love gardens and are becoming deeply weary of cold and snow, here’s our Dandelion Chandelier curated list of the best orchid shows around the globe, with their 2018 dates and themes. Even if you only travel to these in your mind, we hope it’ll leave you feeling restored.
