TRAVEL | The Race to Antarctica

Oh Boy, do I love to travel. I have more than the bug. I am possessed by the demon. Someone on Instagram pointed out that I will have been to 5 of the 7 continents this year. When I read that all I could think was, "How do I get to Antarctica before Dec. 31st?"  Two of my favorite travel resources are Marchay and Fathom (full disclosure: I occasionally write for both). Fathom has some terrific itineraries and recommendations for places all over the world — I never book a hotel without checking there first. Marchay is a fantastic travel club / concierge service and I use them constantly when I am abroad. Recently I was in Paris for a friend's birthday and between the restaurant recommendations, access to a few great nightclubs, and helping me with my plane tickets, Marchay made a huge difference in my trip. 

A few of my favorite spots include (but most certainly are not limited to): 
Taj Mahal
Angkor Wat
the Samburu Desert in Kenya
Marfa, TX
and the Villa Treville hotel outside Positano
