… SUN BRONZE. Get tanned on Nikki Beach in Saint-Tropez, browse the shops on La Croisette in Cannes, sip cock­tails while watch­ing a sun­set at the Sea Lounge in Monaco Beach club, have a truly sump­tu­ous din­ner at La Pe­tite Mai­son in Nice, and dance the night away in Sass in Monte Carlo. A per­fect day in the South of France. … PLAY WITH ELE­PHANTS. Go on sa­fari in South Africa and stay in a beau­ti­ful Earth Lodge, like Sabi Sabi in Kruger Na­tional Park. See the Big Five and don’t be shocked when an ele­phant sips out of your jacuzzi in the morn­ings. … BE HOME ALONE, TOO. One gor­geous evening, slip into a god­dess gown and stilet­tos, pour your­self your favourite drink, and en­joy a quiet mo­ment in a well-loved cor­ner of your home. Just be­cause … … RE­LAX WITH THE KIDS. Let them lay out your best chi­naware for tea with sand­wiches and cook­ies. Trust me, they’ll be care­ful and will be the hap­pi­est kids go­ing to bed that night. … START SEE­ING THE REAL YOU. Learn to ac­cept your­self with this great trick: Get a foren­sic artist to draw you based only on your own de­scrip­tions of your­self. The dis­crep­ancy will as­tound you. … GO DUTCH. Visit the St­edelijk, Ri­jks, and Van Gogh mu­se­ums in Am­s­ter­dam and sit in awe. Then go to Winkels and in­dulge in the best ap­ple pie in the world, served with a plate­ful of freshly whipped cream. … TOUCH BASE. Sarawak will al­ways be my home and my kids love the river rides on slim long boats in Batang Ai, walks through vir­gin rain­for­est in San­tubong, and see­ing an­i­mals in the wild in Bako Na­tional Park. … STOP PRO­CRAS­TI­NAT­ING. Make that change, what­ever it is, to­day.
