The Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas

I love chandeliers! I’ve got one in almost every room in my house. So naturally, I loved The Chandelier Bar at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Stepping into this bar is like walking through one giant, glamorous, sparkly chandelier.

Budapest, Then

Budapest, Hungary—take two. My train rolled into this magical city, known locally as Budapesht, for the second time in 15 years. The Hungarian capital, divided by the Danube river into the districts of Buda and Pest, was as picturesque as I remembered it from decades ago, although the city itself had undergone major changes since my initial visit. Back then, I remembered a quality of darkness—both in spirit and physical appearance. Buildings were stained black. The city was a bit rough around the edges—a little bit seedy you could say—and there was a certain heaviness of spirit in the air. It was also winter, with fleeting hours of daylight and a frigid bite in the air. The impression was very much one of recovery from the aftermath of soviet occupation.

Amsterdam is a quirky city where plenty of off-beat design touches flourish. Among the dangerously crooked houses you’ll find eccentric boutique shops, artistic graffiti, and bursts of bright orange, the unofficial national color. You’ll also discover plenty of stylish and design-centric hotels across the city, one of the most intriguing being The Toren.

The Moselle Valley, or “D’Musel” as it is affectionately known as in Luxembourg, is one of Europe’s most celebrated wine regions. It’s also a great jumping off point for a multi-country wine tour since the Moselle Valley spans 3 countries: Luxembourg, Germany, and France. Within Luxembourg, the Moselle Valley makes up the heart of the country’s wine industry. Connoisseurs of white wines will find bliss in the string of tiny towns that make up the Moselle Valley, where small family vineyards specialize in whites like Crémant, Riesling, Auxerrois, and Pinot Gris.
