The Definition of Luxury in 2019 | By Babs Harrison

A recent story in Travel Weekly hits us, hard, with two truths: the old definition of luxury is obsolete (plush sheets and ornate chandeliers alone don't cut it) but a new definition has rapidly taken hold and it spells a new reality for travel providers and marketers.

Despite strong reviews and a fan petition, Netflix said today that it is cancelling “Daredevil” after three seasons. This is the latest Marvel series, after “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist,” that Netflix has cancelled recently, and is a sign that Marvel TV and Netflix’s multi-series agreement, signed in 2013, may be hitting some bumps. Centered around a blind lawyer-turned-superhero in New York City, played by Charlie Cox, “Daredevil” was the first series released as part of the Marvel -Netflix ...

Experiencing the Best of Yunnan With the InterContinental Kunming in China

Hotels and resorts play different roles in our lives depending on where we go, our own style of travel and so many other factors. At its best, a great resort or hotel should be so much more than a simple place to store your bags and sleep at night. No, they should be an active participant in the travel adventure; a key component to a trip that, in many cases, transforms the experience into a truly remarkable event. It’s increasingly rare to discover these special getaways, but that is exactly w...

Cheap ski resorts in famous areas

Skiing is a notoriously expensive hobby. The equipment, the clothing, the $12 beers — all in addition to the cost of getting on the hill. For those lacking a season pass, planning a trip to the mountain is an intimidating prospect. Getting on the gondola at Aspen can cost you over $150. Lift tickets at some resorts have gotten so expensive that prices are hard to even find on their websites. Fortunately, there are more affordable options, some even leaving enough in your wallet to splurge on ...

50-mile walk proposed in Australia

Soon, you won’t have to choose between two of Australia’s most popular beaches — if you’re up for a wee bit of a trek. A project is in its planning stages to build a 50-mile-long coastal hike between Bondi and Manly beaches in Sydney. The walk won’t be a convenient path between the two beaches, but it will allow hikers to experience lush landscapes, Aboriginal art, and architectural features. As of right now, the walk is slated to include Bondi Beach, Camp Cove, the Vaucluse and Elizabeth Bay...

Air France Expected to Shut Down Joon, Apologize to Millennials

It's been a year since Air France started service under the 'Joon' brand. There are various reports that Air France is either considering killing Joon, or has already made a decision to do so. Getting rid of it could reduce complexity and serve as a bargaining chip with the carrier's pilots. Pretending that it's really a different brand for millennials was just silly. It was created by consultants who think millennial means "no money, doesn’t care about comfort, and is into marketing buzz." C...
