And the world spins madly on! (Have you heard that song? It's one of my favorites). I am home in New York City after my adventure in Jordan and just beginning to sort through photos and content that I want to post here and developing a couple of pieces for a great travel magazine outlet. The world does indeed spin madly on. Thank you for your wonderful e-mails through the contact form on my site. I promise to get back to you soon!
First, I wanted to post an interview that ran on TravelandLeisure.com with Kristin McGee, talking about her favorite hotels and travel tips on eating healthy on the road. As it says in the interview, we did plan on and end up having a really fun double date with our significant others (her husband, Tim, and my boyfriend Andy) at Cafe Cluny in the West Village.
Q&A: Celebrity Fitness Instructor Kristin McGee
"The first time I took globetrotting fitness guru Kristin McGee’s Pilates class at the SoHo Equinox, I was instantly a fan. Then I found out she was the instructor in Bethenny Frankel’s first yoga DVD, Body by Bethenny. She is highly sought after in New York City, with clients like Steve Martin, Tina Fey, Ben Stiller, and his wife Christine Taylor. Kristin has made numerous TV and magazine appearances, blogs daily on her own site, and has led fitness retreats in Sicily, Cartagena, Marrakesh and St. Petersburg. No wonder she wakes up at 5 a.m. to fit it all in!
We met for a glass of wine, talked great hotels and healthy food choices on the road, and planned a double date with our significant others.
Q: What are your favorite hotels around the world?
A: The month I got married, I stayed at Mii Amo at The Enchantment Resort in Sedona. Everything is oriented to giving yourself the best care from the inside out, from the incredible spa cuisine to the line-up of daily classes. We stayed at the Sun Valley Lodge in my home state of Idaho the night of my wedding. The lodge is very old-school and feels like you’re in a big European chalet, with an ice-skating rink open year round."
