Check out the Horrifying Hotel that Inspired 'The Shining!'
This nine-day French vacation will see you straight relaxing amidst hamlets, medieval abbeys, and vineyards located in France's exuberant countryside, all before transferring over to Paris where you'll stay just outside the Eiffel Tower-toting Champ de Mars for two nights... which apparently does not mean "The champion of Mars". Who knew?
16 days. Three Himalayan kingdoms. One super-cultured you. It may sound ambitious, but thanks to the travel pros at GeoEx, the only thing you'll have to worry about is what to wear (hint: something comfortable & neutral). The adventure will take you through four countries and well into Tibet, Bhutan, and Nepal where you'll visit some holy sites and hike some unholy trails. You'll also take a flight right by Mt. Everest... y'know, just because.
Located on the west coast of Barbados in Saint James, Sandy Lane is definitely not a porn star a place you should see yourself in. Why you ask? Well, not only do they offer up marble floors and private terraces in every suite, but they're also working with a 47,000sqft spa with 11 treatment suites, each with their own, private hydrotherapy pool... That's right. Hydrotherapy, son.
Tanzania is probably where Pride Rock is situated because there are, like, a ton of animals aimlessly running around here, and you can now see them all on this trip. Once settled in your camp, you'll be provided with 20 meals (not all at once), a bottle of vino (because that's how you roll), and unlimited drinking water (because you like being alive) as well as transp from a private safari Land Cruiser and, the kicker, hot showers throughout.
Head off to the quiet mountain town of Ftan, Switzerland, where you'll put your feet up in the eclectic Hotel Paradies. The digs were originally home to artist Hans Walter Bayer, but have now been transformed into a 23-room hotel complete w/ flatscreens, old-fashioned rugs, velvet sofas, and scented wood... Finally, all that extraneous quoting of Anchorman has payed off!
