A Letter From Switzerland

In the Graubünden Mountains of Switzerland, the scent of pine hangs thick and sweet in the air, as summer fades to autumn. The screech of tires on tar while old-fashioned automobiles propel up the mountain in the Arosa Classic Car, dulls to a distant memory. Carp anglers who summer in the Swiss Alps flick their […]

Letter from Asia Thailand

It’s About Thai It seems somewhat serendipitous that I had just started reading A Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes when I was invited to tour one of Asia’s greatest treasures—Thailand. The theme of Rhimes’ best-selling book was her commitment to saying “yes” to all opportunities that came her way, especially those that would take […]

A letter from the Caribbean

My dearest friends, I am just about to pop out of the villa and head to the beach.  The thing is I need to wait for the butler to finish placing my bottle of Rosé in the ice bucket. This minor delay is completely my doing.  When I arrived this morning, early, I had time […]
