Winter Escapes

 I¹m sitting here in the office on a dreary winter¹s day and dreaming of a summer holiday to warm me up. These destinations are currently top of my go-to lists

If you're able to get away to the sun during our winter months, one of my favourite destinations is Mexico¹s Yucatán Peninsula. Added bonus: it¹s only a couple of hours¹ flight from New York. This cool, hip resort has everything you could wish for‹crystalline waters, flighty flamingos, amazing ruins and fantastically fiery food. The Mr & Mrs Smith hotel guides will help you find somewhere fabulous to stay.

Another favourite destination is Galle in Sri Lanka, and the only place to stay while you¹re there is the Amangalla Resort. Of course, I may be biased as it¹s where I went with friends and family to get married a few years ago. Galle is such a special place in the world, and was largely saved from the tsunami by the being a walled city. It's less hectic than India, and the welcome at the Amangalla is as warm as the weather.


  1. Divine! I'm so over the rain!!!!Would love to escape too!

  2. Gorgeous! Oh gosh, to be able to escape this rainy Sydney weather and spend a few days (weeks?) in either of these locations. How divine.
    Would love to see some of your wedding pics! Such a unique venue.
