Thank you Travel Agent Central for quoting me on the breaking news on Hawaii’s Legislation of Same Sex Marriage. …” “The fact that the state Senate of Hawaii passed the Marriage Equality Bill, becoming the 15th state to recognized same sex marriage, will not only boost gay weddings in the island, but also position the destination within the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) segment worldwide,” Carlos Melia of First in Service Travel, an agency based in NewYork, told Travel Agent…” Read more (by Joe Pike).
Obsessed with our darling Suite and the entire look and feel at the recently remodeled The Joule Dallas Boutique Hotel in Downtown Dallas. Taschen Library, Weekend Coffee Store, ESPA Spa, I mean you name it. High Tech Suites and Rooms. And FYI the Triplex Suites are INSANE. !!!!
I flew Aeromexico from New York City to Cancun, to come to Riviera Maya. The experience was, although I flew on Economy, very enjoyable, not to mention that it is such an easy flight. Only in 3 hours, we were landing, early… shocking right, at Cancun International Airport. Member of SkyTeam, therefore you will collect miles with the Delta Airlines group. I flew on a brand new state-of-the-art Boeing 737-800, being the youngest fleet, I would risk to say, flying in between United States and Mexico.
I must say after having seen four shows along the strip during my stay in Las Vegas, last week, I must say this was the one with the least production, and the one with the most excitement and entertaining of them all. Naughty, fun, exotic, erotic, wild and wacky are just a few words to describe this acro-Burlesque cabaret show, recommended only for adults over 18+. Sassy and debauching comedy, sexy cast and wild acts happening merely feet away from the audience. I will let the videos say the rest. TIP is you are black, asian or white, gay or straight…. regardless what you are, be ready to be the center of the jokes, and they are ruthless with a very sharp but funny sense of humor.
Happy to have been invited and considered to attend both the Travel YLC 2013 – Young Travel Leaders Conference 2013, and the LTX 2013 – Luxury Travel Exchange International. Yesterday I join a panel of expert Niche Travel Advisors, on a guest speaking over ” What is your Niche?” providing my insight as an expert Gay Travel Advisor and Marketing Consultant. Other niches covered were: Pet Friendly, Special Needs and Disabilities and Adventure Travel. Today the LTX International 2013 began, and I have attended several Educational Sessions and meeting with key contacts from the world of Luxury Travel and Hospitality. What has been the inspirational highlight of my day, to understand why clients book their Travel Experiences through me? to find out it is because… I am Lovable, Trustable, I go over the top and I know my stuff based on years of experience and work
Last night I went to see ZARKANA, after a previous night of Michael Jackson ONE also produced by Cirque du Soleil, which left me wanting more acrobatics and signature WOW moments. Both the last and newest productions/shows by Cirque. Zark, the ringmaster of an extraordinary circus coming back to life, guides us in an abandoned theatre populated by a motley collection of off-the-wall characters and incomparable acrobats.
So today I arrived to Las Vegas, and right after checking in at my hotel, invited by Cirque du Soleil and Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, I got myself to the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino right on time to enjoy my first show while in town. Michael Jackson ONE, is one of the six current productions by Cirque de Soleil, being performed along The Strip. Developed between Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson.
Last week, I had a express stay at the Hôtel Americano in New York City, member of the Grupo Habita and Design Hotels. Located in the heart of the Chelsea between the High Line and the Hudson River. Quaint small hotel, very happening, on a rather quiet street, only two blocks from the Hudson River Park over 27th Street, between 10th and 11th.
Fabulous evening last night in West Village, New York trying two fantastic venues I would strongly recommend. The sophisticated, sexy chic and exclusive private rooms at Omar’s La Ranita, over Filthy Vodka Martinis and great company. After that, onwards to a classic Italian dinner at Morandi Restaurant w/ Rubin Singer. Just priceless TGIF in Manhattan.
If you follow my blog, you will know by now that despite being a native Argentinean, I do not eat beef… therefore when I hear the word Steakhouse, I already feel totally out of my lead. But priorities are priorities, and when you are hosted for a formal dinner at a signature Jean-Georges Restaurant, all you do is to open your mind and get ready for a fabulous gourmet experience. So I did. !!! I drove from the Four Seasons Scottsdale all the way to The Phoenixian Hotel, to meet with my hosts at Visit Phoenix. When I arrived to the 5th floor I was amazed by the gorgeous panoramic views over Camelback Mountain, just in time to enjoy a lovely sunset at the bar, over a perfect Grey-Goose Filthy Vodka Martini with huger blue cheese stuffed olives.
