Highlights

We unexpectedly found ourselves with a week in Paris. My husband tested positive before his flight home to the USA. A lot of travel lessons come out of this week. • Grateful we are both double vaccinated and double boosted. His symptoms were no worse than the common cold and I remained negative the entire time we were here. • We have travel insurance. But not enough trip delay coverage. This is what covers hotel, food, transportation. Our Policy only came with $2000 and I didn’t think to increase that. • COVID quarantine rules are hard to interpret in a foreign country. After much research, we determined he needed to quarantine 7 days because he is fully vaccinated and boosted. If not it would have been 10 days. He also need to get a ‘Covid recovery certificate’ from a doctor to show with his original positive test in order to board a plane. Luckily he tested negative on his own and we were able to get attested antigen tests and fly home today. • It is important to test with at home antigen tests every day. You never know when you will test negative or others in your party will test positive. That would reset your quarantine time. COVID is here to stay. As mask requirements drop around the world, it is more important than ever to get vaccinated and boosted. While getting COVID really messed up our travel plans, it didn’t land either of us in the hospital or even worse, kill us. #travel #traveltips #luxurytravel #freelancer #paris #parisfrance #covid #quarantine #travelers #travellife #worldtravel #france #europetravel

Barge cruising in France. My home this week is the six passenger, luxury @bargemeandererfrance. I think this is one of the most glorious ways to see the French countryside. You can get away from major ports and big city cruising. It is a unique an opportunity to travel along French canals to see smaller towns and villages. #smallshipcruising #luxurycruise #luxurycruising #luxurycruises #quirkycruise #bargecruise #france #loirevalley #luxurytravel #luxurytraveller #luxurylife #visitfrance #cruise #cruising #bargelife #barge #rivercruise #cruiselife #cruiseaddict #cruisetravel #tlpicks #worldtraveller #travelmore #francetravel #francetrip #satw #slowtravel

Spending a few days at @coquillade_provence_resort_spa after our Rhône river cruise. This luxury @relaischateaux resort is located on a 100-year-old estate in the heart of France’s Luberon Valley, less than an hour from Avignon The hotel has only 63 rooms which are spread out among six French county houses making you feel like you are in a little village in Provence. An extraordinary place to stay in the South of France 🇫🇷 #luxurytravel #luxurylifestyle #coquilladeprovence #relaischateaux #provence #travel #france #southoffrance #provencefrance #provencestyle #luberon #smallshipcruising #luberoncoeurdeprovence #discoveringfrance #cycling #spa #vineyard #luxurytravellers #readytotravel

Hiking and wine tasting. The perfect pairing on our @amawaterways Colors of Provence river cruise. #amawaterways #rivercruise #rivercruises #provence #wine #winetasting #vineyard #travel #explorepage #smallshipcruising #luxurycruises #luxurycruise #excursion #winery #rhonewine #rhône #visitfrance #cruisetravel #francewine #frenchwine #hiking #hikingadventures #beautifulview

Today we rode 10 miles along the Rhône river. It was a gorgeous day for biking and a great way to see the countryside. Made me feel better about all of the wine and cheese we are consuming this week! @amawaterways includes a variety of daily walking, hiking, biking, culinary, or cultural excursions to choose from. It is great that there options for all levels of physical ability. #amawaterways #amakristina #rhône #biketours #biking #france #rhonevalley #smallshipcruising #rivercruise #rivercruising #rivercruiseexpert #cruise #luxurycruise #luxurycruises #activelifestyle #shoreexcursion #freelancewriter #travel #travelmore #europetravel

I love Europe. Exploring on foot is my favorite way to see the cities. There is nothing better than strolling the streets. It is one of the reasons I love river cruising. This week I am sailing with @amawaterways on the Rhône river. Because the #AmaKristina is docked right in the center of Lyon we are able to walk right off the boat and head into to see this beautiful city. #rivercruise #cruise #amawaterways #smallshipcruising #rivercruises #rivercruising #lyon #france #francetourisme #europe #travel #freelance #rhône #travelling #luxurytravel #onlylyon #cityphotography #visitfrance

My home away from home is an airport. When you travel as frequently as I do, you need to have clothing and gear that is as functional as it is comfortable. My go-to outfit is this pair of pants and this cashmere V-neck sweater from @anatomiestyle along with this compact backpack from @solonewyork. Although sometimes I swap it out for their tote which I love as well. You can find links to all of these products in my bio. What are your go-to travel gear brands? #luxurytravel #travelgear #travelclothes #backpack #travel #freelancer #luxuryclothing #totebags #solobag #anatomiestyle #luxurystyle #travelpants #travelholic #travellers #travelpic #mytravelgram #traveladdict #travelgram #traveler #travellife

Spanning the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic ocean, the @mo_canouan is a true destination. With turquoise blues everywhere you look, this exceptional property offers guests seclusion in a blissfully relaxing setting. It is the kind of place where the staff always goes the extra mile, making you feel like you are the most important guest at the hotel. They will arrange for a private beach picnic, a sunset cocktail on the 13th green, and deep tissue massages in their overwater bungalows. It may not seem like the most convenient place to vacation, but their team makes it convenient for you. I promise it’s worth going the extra mile to get here. A huge thank you to the Mandarin Oriental Canouan for hosting @nicolejunasravlin and I for this amazing getaway. #mandarinorientalcanouan #mandarinoriental #iamafan #luxurytravel #travel #luxuryhotel #caribbeanlife #oceanfronthotel #saintvincentandthegrenadines #stvincent #canouanisland #luxuryspa #overwaterbungalow #ShareMyMOment #turquoisewater #luxuryhotelsandresorts #tranquility #hotelgoals #luxuryworld #luxuryresort #luxuryworldtraveler #privatebeach #luxuryresorts #getaway #freelancelife

Who could resist snorkeling in these turquoise blue waters? True confession: I really didn’t like snorkeling until recently. Now I can’t get enough of it. So when the @mo_canouan offered us a private catamaran sail over to the Tobago Cays to swim with the sea turtles I jumped on the chance to do it. #mandarinorientalcanouan #mandarinoriental #iamafan #snorkeling #snorkel #caribbeandreaming #caribbean #sailing #luxurytravel #travelphotography #travel #luxuryhotel #caribbeanlife #travellife #freelancer #catamaran #privateboattrip #sailing #luxurylifestylemedia #saintvincentandthegrenadines #stvincent

When Monday morning blues start like this. Not a bad way to start the week at @mo_canouan #iamafan #mandarinoriental #mandarinorientalhotel #mandarinorientalcanouan #caribbean #beach #svg #luxurytravel #luxurylifestyle #saintvincentandthegrenadines #stvincent #canouanisland #canouan #turquoise #oceanfronthotel #vacation #fansofmo #stvincentandthegrenadines #islandlife #caribbeantravel #travelling #freelancer #luxuryresort #luxuryresorts #luxuryhotel #freelancelife

@united I am cheating on you. Truthfully, the only way to get to the @mo_canouan is on the resort’s private jet. Canouan is a very small island (population 2,700) in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. This is luxury travel at its finest. #privatejets #travelling #sorrynotsorry #privatejet #luxurylifestyle #luxurytravel #iamafan #mandarinoriental #mandarinorientalcanouan #freelancer #barbados #saintvincentandthegrenadines #canouanisland

The place to be on Thursday nights in San Pancho. Great local vibe. Go for the cervezas and dinner but stay for the music. @oliviadelacruzmusic and @talktodavidjames are fantastic 🎶 #mexico #exploremexico #mexicotravel #travelmexico #mexicolove #lovemexico #takemethere #sanpancho #sanfrancisconayarit #localmusic #localvibes #cervezaartesanal #localbar #smalltowncharm #satw #traveldeeper #travellife

Not a bad place to wake up in for the next few weeks. I’ve never rented the same house twice. Until now. #visitmexico #sanpancho #rivieranayarit #vacationrental #oceanview #infinitypool #mexico #mexicotrip #travelphotography #traveler #traveltheworld #oceanlovers #beachviews #remoteworking #satw #takemethere

The @oomandarina is absolutely stunning. Built into an oceanside cliff, every villa, treehouse and restaurant have views like this. The property’s secluded location hidden on the coast of @riviera_nayarit means total privacy for its guests. We enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Alma. I hope to return soon. It would be a dream to stay here. #luxurytravel #luxurytraveller #luxurytraveler #luxurytrips #mexico #oneandonlymandarina #oneandonly #oneandonlyresorts #oceanfronthotel #infinitypool #infinitypoolview #vacationvibes #traveladdict #traveltheworld #explorepage #exploremore #visitmexico #satw #takemethere
