I never really thought of myself as much of an advocate for a natural and organic lifestyle. Sure, I’m concerned about saving the planet, and I’m a highly conscientious person, but I didn’t think that an entire event dedicated to this stuff would be my thing – I admit I was wrong! I came to LNLO for the free massage*, and stayed for the other exciting stands and stalls.
One day, back in November, I was sitting on the sofa, bored, looking at flights – as I often do. Suddenly, I said to Dougie “LET’S GO TO NEW YORK FOR VALENTINE’S!”. I don’t know if I was kidding or what, but anyway, it wound up happening. I’ve wanted to go back to NYC for some time now, and my fifth experience of the city didn’t disappoint. Yes, I go away a lot, and yes, I am lucky. But I’m cursed with wanderlust and blessed with the determination to do what I say I will. Plus, I work pretty hard – the money thing really helps, too!
The Grand Hotel Presolana, funnily enough, in Presolana, Italy, is one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, the world over. I’ve been to three different continents, probably hundreds of different cities, and yet this four star mountainside hotel in Italy’s beautiful Lombardia region really stood out. As an integral part of my surprise holiday for my 25th birthday, I can honestly say that this place really doesn’t disappoint. It has everything you need – great staff, great scenery, a great spa and even a great setting – it doesn’t get much better than that. I’d go back in a heartbeat, and I reckon everyone else should try it out, too!
