"A fine and subtle spirit dwells / In every little flower, / Each one its own sweet feeling breathes / With more or less of power. / There is a silent eloquence / In every wild bluebell / That fills my softened heart with bliss / That words could never tell." ― The Bluebell by Anne Bronte
I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! I chose to celebrate mine with my beautiful friend there - a great mom and just all-around great person. Fun fact: She took over from me in BAM Artists Services when I left and is a truly gifted professional. We and her husband and adorable two sons spent the afternoon at one of my Happy Places, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. We listened to live jazz, blew bubbles, wandered through woodlands learning the names of native trees and flowers, then suddenly found ourselves in Bluebell Wood surrounded by sun dappled blankets of blue flowers happily in full bloom. It was like discovering a magic fairyland!
Then Nine Muses Travel hit the ground running this week finalizing another fantastic London and Paris itinerary for a family with two children ages 11 and 14. Each trip I plan is highly customized for each client, and their itinerary has some cool highlights. They were excited to learn their dates coincided with Wimbledon, and I was able to book them four Centre Court seats - with access to debenture lounges (exclusive restaurant and bar facilities where they can eat, drink and relax). Another highlight is in Paris; their final dinner reservation is in the Eiffel Tower. They have so much fun awaiting them: river cruises in both London and Paris, afternoon cream tea at Harrod's, a private London graffiti and street art walking tour in Shoreditch, a private illuminated Paris tour to see the City of Light all lit up at night, a private family-friendly Louvre tour, and a lot more too!
There are endless ways to experience London and Paris (anywhere really), and your own customized itinerary all starts with our first consultation call when I learn more about you and your travel needs, preferences, and wanderlust wishes. Envisioning your itinerary is one of my favorite parts of what I do!
Other new requests this week include a young couple looking for a wildly wonderful and active outdoor adventure in Norway, a lecturer heading to St. Andrews in Scotland and wanting a comfortable stay and transportation arrangements before and after her presentation at the university, and an over-the-top wonderful group trip in London for donors of a prestigious American dance company.
