You've Got Mail
In a world ruled by texts, IMs, and
social media posts, communicating by snail mail feels downright
daring. Fusing classic and modern, analog and digital, the new
Pixinote app lets you reach out
to loved ones with notecards sent
directly from your iOS device to
their physical postbox. Just pick
a name from your contacts, write
a short message, add a selﬁe or
favorite travel image (even emoji, if
you must), and hit send. It's a great
way to share vacation memories -
no cloud backup required. $3 for
one note; $12 for ﬁve.

Special perks are par for the
course when booking a hotel stay
through a Virtuoso travel advisor.
Guests at Hôtel Royal - Evian Resort at
the foot of the French Alps, for example,
receive a complimentary round of golf for
two, including green fees and cart rental in
addition to the resort's standard amenities
(think breakfast daily and a room upgrade,
if available). Evian is just one of many
hotels in the Virtuoso network to expand
its list of bespoke amenities, which include
a Maldives sunset cruise for two at Taj
Exotica Resort & Spa and a visit to the
Loisaba Conservancy headquarters while
on safari at Kenya's Loisaba Tented Camp.
Contact your Virtuoso
travel advisor for details.
The toughest part is going home.
