From the Desk of Heather Christopher: April Updates

This month has been full of designing some exciting itineraries – two being mother-daughter vacations. In February, Travel + Leisure shared an article on why you should travel with your mom every year so I am pretty excited to be making that happen for these mother-daughter duos. One is traveling to France & Ireland and the another to Australia. Amazing, right? If you haven’t read the article, you can check it out here. Sure is setting the bar high for my own daughters! πŸ˜‰

I am also in the thick of planning my own summer vacation to…can you guess it? Hawaii! My family & I are so excited to head back in July. A stay at Timbers Kauai and an experience with Tasting Kauai are currently on the agenda. It is going to be so nice to spend some quality time with my family but I am also going with you in mind so if there is something specific you’re interested in for your next Hawaiian vacation, just let me know πŸ˜‰

In other BIG news, the newest addition to the HCTC team is officially starting on May 1st! I cannot wait to introduce you to her. She’s currently honeymooning in Croatia (insert all the heart eye emojis) and going to do an Instagram takeover to tell you all about it! So you’ll definitely want to keep an eye out for that in the upcoming weeks.

Are you in dire need of a vacation but you are just not sure where to travel with kids? Town & Country Magazine breaks down the best place to do this in 2019! And you better believe Hawaii made the list ;-). You can read all about it & pick your next destination here!

Remember back in November when I got to spend one (amazing) night on a private island in Belize? You can too – but how awesome would this be for a fisherman’s big birthday? Royal Belize partners with Blue Horizon, the only Orvis Endorsed Outfitter in Belize. Blue Horizon operates inside the protection of the Belize Barrier Reef – the epicenter of the finest flats in the world. They fish daily around a chain of small cayes from north of Dangriga to south of Placencia. Miles of undisturbed flats increase the chances of success at hitting the grand slam: permit, tarpon and bonefish. Fly rod targets such as barracuda, snook, jack crevalle, bonito and mackerel are abundant and readily take well presented flies in the flats of Southern Belize. Their team of expert guides look forward to sharing a memorable experience on the water with you!
