Incredible India - A phrase that haunted most of my nights, and all of my days. What would it be like to take in the Taj at a glance, shut your eyes, and preserve that beloved sight forever? How would it feel to live in a houseboat in Allepey, hearing the waters lap, gurgle, and roll along gently? To ride on a camel, along vast stretches of golden brown sand?

India is luring, yet imposing. Charming, yet intimidating. Rugged, yet soft hues sweep past the sub continent. Like a sumptuous, delectable meal spread before me, India`s flavors tingle my senses. Zesty, tangy, spicy...


With the Arabian Sea in the west, the Western Ghats towering 500-2700 ms in the east and networked by 44 rivers, Kerala enjoys unique geographical features that have made it one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. An equable climate. A long shoreline with serene beaches. Tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters. Lush hill stations and exotic wildlife. Waterfalls. Sprawling plantations and paddy fields. Ayurvedic health holidays. Enchanting art forms. Magical festivals. Historic and cultural monuments. And exotic cuisine... All of which offer you a unique experience. And what's more, every one of these charming destinations is only a two hour drive from the other. A singular advantage no other destination offers.

Kerala, India's most advanced society: A hundred percent literate people. World-class health care systems. India's lowest infant mortality and highest life expectancy rates. The highest physical quality of life in India. Peaceful and pristine, Kerala is also India's cleanest state.

Several villas, country homes, castles, spas, activities and tours.
Italy and surrounding areas-TBD

Italy is a moveable feast of seemingly endless courses. Rome bristles with reminders of its Imperial past; Florence and Venice are virtually outdoor museums; Naples is full of Baroque bombast and Palermo locals view their Byzantine-Norman treasures with a shockingly laissez-faire attitude. But Italy’s riches extend far beyond the obvious. Ski in chic Courmayeur or climb the snow-coated peaks of the Sesto Dolomites; strap on your boots and take to the hills of Tuscany or don designer shades and island hop around Sicily; sleep in converted farmhouses and dine in country kitchens on food so good you’ll swear no other cuisine compares.
