Event recap | Rediscovering the world of travel

Back to insights

By Capital Partners Lifestyle

On Tuesday, the 25th of October, we welcomed our clients to a special in-house event to rediscover the world of travel. Exploring some of the world’s most luxurious tours and hotels, if you joined us, we hope you felt inspired to dip your toes into the world of travel again. If you did not attend this event, don’t worry, this is just one of our many upcoming bespoke events we look forward to hosting. Read our event summary below to discover what could be part of your next travel itinerary. At the end, you will also find helpful links and a copy of the event presentation (to convince your family and friends to join you!).

Presented by Sandi Royce, representing Travel Associates Australia, we set sail with an expedition cruising through Arctic and Antarctic waters. Whether you’re drawn to the resilience of Polar Bears or captivated by the Northern Lights, Aurora and Hurtigruten cruises boast various travel options for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Next, we travelled through sublime scenery to discover legendary railroad train adventures. From Venice, Britain, Scotland, South America, and South Africa, there was a railroad option to suit the pace of any explorer. The itineraries for these railroad adventures are as endless as the travel is timeliness.

Finally, we turned our attention to hidden hotel gems of the world. France and Italy were our feature destinations here, as we discovered spectacular villas within Tuscany’s Cortona Hills that made us daydream about warm poolside daybeds under olive trees.

From there, we subconsciously checked into a luxurious, privately owned estate in Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean. We were delighted with 17th-century architecture, our own private pool, a 12-hole golf course and a Michelin-starred restaurant. Then, just when we thought it couldn’t get any better, Sandi presented us with two more truly extraordinary boutique hotels within the City of Lights.

The first boutique Parisian hotel was the Le Pavillion des Lettres, a space that pays homage to the legends of European literature. This hotel is within walking distance of the Champs Elysees and tastefully has the words of legendary writers stencilled into the walls of each room.

The final stunning residence, Hotel du Petit Moulin, delighted us with quirky, theatrical, and playful décor, each room taking on a unique artistic theme. What was once the first bakery in Paris, legend has it that Victor Hugo, the French poet and playwright, would stop by each morning to buy his baguettes. For a moment, we let ourselves imagine waking up here with a buttery croissant and views of the Eiffel Tower…

If you joined us, thank you. We loved welcoming you and hope you have found your next bucket list experience to tick off.
