My fall 2013 travel schedule is beyond ridiculous. I will be on at least 5 continents and I will actually visit all 7 continents in this calendar year-this will be the first time I’ve done that. I will be going back to some old favorites but doing them in a new way. I will be visiting some of the most remote places on planet Earth-literally and I will be flying a lot of miles! This travel will also move me from 307 to 316 on the Travelers Century Club list-only 5 from finishing!
My fall 2013 travel schedule looks something like this although not all dates are 100% set and everything is scheduled to change of course. I hope everything goes smoothly but any way you slice it, I’ve got a really cool fall coming up.
September 21 – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a wedding
September 22-26 – Barcelona, Spain to visit one of my favorite cities. I will be seeing my favorite Spanish soccer club, FC Barcelona vs. Real Sociedad at the Nou Camp. I will be staying in a gorgeous vacation rental from Go With Oh right in the center of Barcelona.
September 26-28 – Ibiza, Spain to get some sun and see the famous island of music and madness. I will be staying at the famous Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel and also visiting Formentera-the neighboring island.
September 28-October 1 – Rome, Italy to visit the eternal city and also catch an AS Roma Serie A game at the Stadio Olimpico!
October 1-8 – I am on a Mediterranean cruise with Azamara Cruises. The cruise makes stops in Tuscany, Isla de Elba, Monaco, Nice, St. Tropez and a few other hot spots. This is only the second cruise I have ever been on and I know it will be better than my first; which was awful!
October 8-10 – New York City
October 10-11 – Chicago, Illinois for the New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears game with my friends.
October 11-14 – Toronto, Ontario, Canada for the wedding of my buddy Panos at the Trump Hotel Toronto; where I will also be staying.
October 14-16 – New York City
October 16–November 3 – Chile and the Falkland Islands. I will be making several stops in Chile including Santiago, Pucon, Temuco, Punta Arenas and Robinson Crusoe Island in the Juan Fernandez Archipelago. I will also be spending six days in the Falkland Islands. I am not 100% set on my dates for this trip yet except for the Falklands so I will have more details soon but I am looking forward to flying down on Lan Airlines.
November 3-15 New York City
November 15-19 – Cape Town, South Africa to visit one of my favorite cities in the world, climb Table Mountain a few times and see some friends.
November 19-29 – The South Pole, Antarctica. I will be flying from Cape Town to Queen Maude Land to visit emperor penguins and do some ice hiking, climbing and caving and then fly to the Geographic South Pole. This is a trip that has taken me forever to piece together and I am very excited about it. I will also be hosting the same trip next year as well in December 2014-contact me for details if you’re interested.
December 1-5 – Cannes, France for the International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM). This is one of my favorite conferences and one of the very few that I actually attend. I am looking forward to going to Cannes for the third time and seeing what’s new in the world of luxury travel and meeting with influential people in the industry.
December 5-January 2014 – New York City
January 2014 – Australia…details to follow soon!
