Virtuoso Traveler - June/July 2017 - 35
Boating in Belize and
(right) the Paris Metro.
I will spend time in France, seeing art
and doing mother-daughter things.
Joshua: My son loves soccer, and when
we were in England, Nancy arranged
for us to see a Tottenham Hotspur
match. The seats were incredible -
practically on the field. It turns out
they were someone's season tickets.
We're rule followers and were sweating because we felt like we weren't
supposed to have them, but we loved
every second of it.
The beach isn't travel. It's vacation.
For me, the ultimate is Hotel Esencia
on Mexico's Riviera Maya. You get
ocean, jungle, Mayan tradition and
history, style, and incredible food.
Melissa: Sometimes it's easier splitting up the group. This summer, Joshua
needs to be in Israel and our son is at
skateboard camp, so my daughter and
the Woods this summer: The shows
start before sundown, and you sit
outside and watch the stars come out.
Melissa: India is on our empty-nest
vacation list. We want to go back to
Amsterdam, even if it's just to see the
flowers. Norway. And we haven't been
to Italy since our honeymoon and
would love to re-create it. VT
Melissa: I'm a decide-what-you'llwear-on-the-other-end traveler, which
humiliates our children. They don't
stand near my luggage because they're
embarrassed by how much I have. My
daughter is a minimalist.
Joshua: If it's just Mellie and me, we'll
go to Ashland, Oregon, to see theater
in the summer. I get really jazzed by
theater. We'll see two plays a day - it's
not just Shakespeare. We'll see Into
A lazy afternoon strumming ukuleles with the kids.
That unforgettable look of awe on their faces after
seeing sea turtles lounging on the beach. The
sunset providing an idyllic backdrop for the perfect
family selfie. Discover the true meaning of "Ohana"
at Fairmont Orchid.
