Luxury Travel With Style Part 2
As we get even closer to summer with the weather warming by the day and the beautiful blue skies becoming even bluer and brighter, you sit back in your newly acquired luxury chair with a refreshing drink in your hand, enjoyed from only the finest crystal glass, whilst admiring your stylish new interior. As you sip and enjoy your surrounding views even more, your mind begins to wander thinking about all the other luxury travel adventures you would like to embark upon as travel restrictions from the Covid pandemic begin to ease and international travel returning, you begin thinking about sitting back in luxury in other surroundings.
At Palmer & Penn this has also been on our minds. Inspired by the luxury travel series of books by famed publisher Assouline we wrote a piece about many of the luxurious destinations we would like to travel to, including the various things to enjoy and how to travel with style. With so many beautiful places to visit we thought we would continue the journey and using the Assouline Travel Collection, have picked out more destinations to visit.
In our last luxury travel journey we ventured over to the lovely Amalfi Coast and Tuscany before heading over to ST. Tropez and Mykonos, this time our journey will take us over to the Americas.

Do you love the thrill of catching a wave every now and then? As you relax and think about the famous surfer’s haven of Ditch Plains, of course the only way to catch the waves is with style and class, and only the most prestigious surfboard will do with a Louis Vuitton Short Board composed of custom graphite being the only ride for your surfing adventure. Thinking of a trip on a charter yacht off the shore of the Springs with a bite of a lobster roll for lunch? The only way to have fresh lobster rolls served up while on the sea is with an Aerin Carina Shagreen Round Tray which naturally must be complemented with only the best French Champagne being kept ice cold in an Ethan Ice Bucket with it’s vintage shaped silhouette. Thinking of a hit out and a spot of tennis at the Meadow Club? The only way to keep the sweat off between gruelling games and remain as luxurious as the club itself is with a Frette Towel that is soft, plush and highly absorbent and embellished with double border embroidery.
Well known for its nightlife and stretching long beaches, Miami Beach is considered by many as America’s most dynamic, fastest growing and sexiest city which doesn’t just change however, evolves over time. The thought of simply sitting back, relaxing and soaking in the sun on one of the many famous stretches of beach is the definition of luxury itself and as you lie in a soak up the sun why not look the part and indulge yourself in a friendly game of chess with a Fowler Chess Set that is made by hand with customer playing pieces in modern metallic finishes.
If a bit of physical activity is more your idea of fun on Miami Beach, then simply grab yourself a pair of blades or bike and ride along the prominades that stretch the length of the beaches and soak in the views as many tourists and locals do alike? As you swiftly glide down the promenade you can leave others in awe of your class with a beautiful fragrance that is as exotic as the beach that you glide next too such as the Empressa Body and Hand Lotion.
