Capturing the Moment

"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you." ― Brigitte Bardot


I'm still riding high from our New York City Ballet donors trip, and I miss London so much! I'd advised NYCB to hire a photographer for our closing night event, and this week we got the photos back from the fantastic Andrew Ogilvy. He did a phenomenal job, and if you ever need to hire a photographer in London, this is your man. Andrew is a total pro - talented, discreet, intuitive, thorough, and also very sweet and friendly. The portraits he took (like mine above) inside the Serpentine North galleries are some of my favorites! He captured the overwhelming joy and pride I was feeling that night.


Yesterday I also added a video intro to Raffles London at The OWO onto the Nine Muses Travel YouTube channel, where I sometimes post tours of properties on my travels. This one has some fun facts about details you'd easily overlook without someone knowledgeable pointing them out to you.


I know it's hard keeping up with my travels, but you may recall in October 2023 I traveled to Austria for a week and spent six sensational days in Salzburg at the invitation of the Austrian Tourism Office. I had to apply to go on the trip by submitting a video explaining why they should choose me. The video was key because this was no ordinary familiarization (aka "fam") trip. Our selected group of Virtuoso travel advisors were followed everywhere by a videographer documenting all the truly wonderful things we were privileged to see and do. At the end of each day, one of us would be separated from the group and privately interviewed. Yesterday we finally got the video!


CLICK HERE to see our outstanding tour of Salzburg, Austria and get a sense of what it's like for travel advisors researching destinations for our clients. Spoiler alert: We have a LOT of fun! I'm so happy it was captured on video, and I wish all my trips could be memorialized in this way. It's so easy for a memory to fade, but now I have this great record of our beautiful adventures around Salzburg! If you can believe it, we did more than what you'll see packed into this seven-minute video (like front row seats to a concert in Mirabell Palace and our nights at Hotel Sacher Salzburg).


I start the video off, and I'm in it... a lot. I really had a great time, and I'd love to hear what you think about visiting Salzburg after watching it. Click here to watch and let me know!
