ACCESS ALL AREAS
YALLINGUP GALLERIES, WESTERN AUSTRALIA I stumbled across this little gem off Caves Road in Yallingup. The art reflects the local landscapes of Western Australia and the colours and emotions are incredibly vibrant. www.yallingupgalleries.com.au. ETRO, SINGAPORE I came across this label in Canada and have discovered Singapore has two fantastic stores; it’s cutting-edge Italian lifestyle fashion. www.etro.it. KILGOUR, LONDON This store is very elegant with modern fittings and superb wooden fixtures. Its clothing range is a classic blend of French and English cuts with great fabrics. www.kilgour.eu. BULGARI HOTEL, BALI Located near Uluwatu, this property is one of Bali’s newest. Think traditional Balinese features, fabulous cliffside villas with private plunge pools and two great restaurants. I highly recommend lounging at the bar at sunset. www.kiwicollection.com. ROCKY MOUNTAINS, CANADA I have been travelling here since I was eight and the scenery and majestic colour of Lake Louise, in particular, is breathtaking. During the drive (from Calgary or Vancouver) you will usually encounter black bears, deer, elks and mountain goats. If you are really lucky you may experience the natural wonder of the northern lights (aurora borealis). www.banfflakelouise.com. SURFING, SRI LANKA I love surfing, although I have less and less time to enjoy it. I was recently in Sri Lanka, down south at the Amanresorts’ property Amanwella at Tangalle. One of the staff is an avid surfer so the general manager arranged for him to take me to his favourite break. We spent a few hours in the sun on perfect waves among large leatherback turtles. www.amanresorts.com.
