Luxury Vacation: The High Life… For A Short Time!

Is the luxury lifestyle all it’s cracked up to be? Of course, a lot of people would say “yes, obviously! Don’t you like money?!” But the joy in life is to have little pockets of luxury, a weekend away here and a complete blowout there and it makes you appreciate the finer things in life before getting back to normality, so you can lead a nice balanced life. Going travelling is a way to see the world, but it’s always that little bit better when you’ve got some cash behind you. For a lot of people who don’t have the funds or spend years and years saving up, America is the zenith of luxury travel. Open roads, sunny climates, and stuff that you only read about in books. So here’s a proposition for those who are looking to make the most of an American journey.

Starting off in the glitziest of places, Las Vegas is a way to show off on a luxury vacation. Take in the luxury lifestyle and lounge around on of the pools in the Bellagio hotel before heading off to a casino on the famed Las Vegas Strip before picking a show to take in. So many big names in music take in a residency, or even if you wanted to watch something a bit more exciting you could witness Circus Circus performing their death-defying stunts or be awash with color while watching the Blue Man Group.

Once you’ve had your fill of Vegas (if that’s possible), you can rent a private jet and set off down to Miami. On the flight, you will have the legroom you’ve never had when riding coach class and have all the hospitality of those where this is a daily occurrence! You’ll have a real taste of the high life! In Miami, soak up the sun and perfect your golf swing at the Miami Beach Golf Course, and enjoy all 18 holes of this championship course before having some afternoon tea at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables. If you like finger sandwiches and buttered scones, set to the soothing sounds of classical guitar before jetting back to Vegas.

The real sign of a high-lifer is getting an SUV and getting on the road. Enjoy the glorious sights en route as you head towards the defining place of the American heartland, the Grand Canyon! Or if an SUV isn’t your style, you can get a helicopter to pick you up and take you there, via the Mojave Desert, the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead! Like champagne? Well, why not have a picnic and marvel at the Colorado River before heading onto Eldorado Canyon for a guided tour of the Techatticup Mine.

The high life isn’t reserved for the mega rich and the elite anymore. You can get yourself a champagne lifestyle on a modest budget, and if you’re looking for a wealth of experience in a short space of time, exploring the Midwest of America (and Florida) via plane, helicopter and SUV is the way to do it!

Driving through the Route des Grands Crus

France is quite well known for its beautiful scenic views and drives. The old films showed it much better than any photographs can depict, but the fun thing is to travel and visit for oneself. One of the most scenic places in France is the Route des Grands Crus. It is a must-have experience – a necessary item for any travel lover’s bucket list. Everyone likes vineyards, after all!

The region

The region is famous for its Burgundy wines and is filled with beautiful vineyards. Wine production in the region has been established since the times of Charlemagne, so the vineyard owners are justifiably proud of their little, or not so little, vineyards. This region is also very easy to reach from some of the main cities of France. Located at a distance of approximately 1.5 hours by car from both Paris and Lyon, the Route des Grands Crus is a major attraction of Bourgogne. For tourists desiring to make this trip, there are many popular car rental agencies in both Paris and Lyon, like Alamo and Avis.

The route

The Route des Grand Crus, situated in Burgundy is a scenic route stretching from Dijon to Santenay for 60 kilometers. This spectacular route has became a famous tourist drive over the years. Covering 37 villages and towns, this gorgeous drive covers many vineyards producing different kinds of grapes used in Burgundy wine production. Each vineyard is small, only about 10 – 15 hectares, so they are very well maintained and a pleasure to watch as they flash by. The road is well paved and there is also a cycling path for those who want to ride there in summer, enjoying the nice breeze, and feeling the warmth of the mild sun.

The experience

Not only are the vineyards beautiful to watch, but the small stops in the villages on this route are worth the experience. Each village has its own tradition of wine making and its own history, and the local people are quite proud to explain why their way is superior.

At times during the drive, the vineyards give way to beautiful hills, forests and cliffs. The drive passes through certain historical spots as well, the most famous among them being the Vosne-Romanée chateau, famous for the Romanée Conti wines. Another famous spot to check out along the way is the amazing steep coloured-tile roof of Château Corton-André. The Château de La Rochepot, also located on the route, is worth a visit. Many of the small villages have old churches and community buildings still standing.

For those preferring a more athletic experience, there are several hiking trails set in various parts of the route, like the Sentier des Roches which moves across the Baubigny cliffs.

For information and assistance in undertaking a trip to the Route des Grands Crus, the Burgundy Today website is an excellent resource. This is certainly an experience worth having!
