What is your idea of the perfect holiday?
A good mix of: Relaxation, ideally by the beach or immersed in nature; Exploration of small towns, natural beauty like forests and waterfalls, local culture and cuisine (vegetarian of course!); and comfort! I like nice hotels and good (though not pretentious!) food. When I travel, I generally like to stay in places that are nicer than my home. 🙂
What has been your best holiday so far, and why?
Hands down, my best holiday so far has been our “mini-moon” to Plettenberg Bay. We stayed at The Grand Hotel and it was the perfect blend of these ingredients. We relaxed by the outdoor fire place while soaking up stunning bay views and eating wood fired pizzas. We explored Plett’s local shops and restaurants and took a fun Segway tour through the town. And we lived in style at a luxurious hotel where we got spa treatments for five days straight! We also created our wedding photo book by that fire place, so a special memory for us as well.
Where is your next trip?
We’re thinking of going to Cabo, Mexico for 4-5 days of chill, a private hot tub, and (hopefully) good Mexican food. Mostly because it’s 3 hours away from SF, only a 1 hour time difference, and it’s likely the closest option for a “not American” vacation based on where we are right now.
