Living tHe virtuoso Life
olly and Bill Tyson work together and play together: When they’re not bringing sparkle to Texas-size smiles at their Fort Worth dental office, the Tysons, 58 and 63 respectively, are “goin’ and doin’,” as Holly drawls for effect, with the help of Virtuoso travel advisor Robin Sanders. “We like adventures and active vacations,” she says. “We hike, we dive, we golf – we’ve kayaked with alligators. Life’s too short to just sit on a beach.”
Your most excellent adventure:
HOLLy: “Machu Picchu, but
we’ve had so many, it’s hard to pick one! After acclimating in Cuzco, we took a one-day hike from Aguas Calientes to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge – which took care of our luggage transfers. It’s a magical place adjacent to the ruins, with wonderful massages, food, and Pisco sours. The next morning we took an early hike through the area llamas and alpacas often roam. Before and after the last tourist buses leave it’s just the ruins, the lodge guests, and the llamas.”
