What I am Thankful For...Travel-Related, Of Course

With it being Thanksgiving week, it seems appropriate to list a few things I am thankful for as a frequent traveler. So here goes:

I am thankful for hotels like Four Seasons Maui (pictured)for never ever disappointing my clients. Everytime I book a client here, I get a thank you email telling me how incredible everything was. This hotel simply does everything right and thus, makes me look good in the process.

I am thankful to whoever invented in-flight WiFi. You guys at GoGo Inflight rock. The daytime cross-country flights I used to dread are now uber-productive thanks to you.

I am thankful for luxury properties like Peninsula Hotels, Luxe Sunset Boulevard, Gansevoort Hotels, Marquis Los Cabos, Canyon Ranch and The Greenwich that don't charge me extra to use the in-room WiFi. Charging for this remains my biggest luxury hotel pet peeve.

I am thankful to our NY-based partners at SmartFlyer and for our membership in the Virtuoso network which enables us to pass along incredible perks & special privileges to all of our clients worldwide.

I am thankful to all of the hotel General Managers I've met around the world over the years who consider my clients VIPs & treat them like old friends the minute they step in their door.

I am thankful to Four Seasons, Ritz-Carlton, Rosewood Hotels & Orient Express for their Preferred Partners, Stars, Elite & Bellini Club programs. As a member of each, our clients enjoy ultra-VIP status when staying at any of their properties.

I am thankful to Mark Zuckerberg, @Ev & @Biz for inventing the Social Media networks that have changed how we do business. Both Facebook & Twitter are responsible for reconnecting me with so many old friends & connecting me to new friends & new clients all over the world.

I am thankful to the (handful of) airline gate agents who understand that there's nothing wrong with being nice to travelers. After all, these are the people who buy the tickets that keep the airlines in business and the reason they have a job.

I am of course, thankful to all of our amazing clients around the world who trust us with their all of their business & vacation travel plans

Lastly, I am thankful for my good health. Without this, I'd never be able to travel all over the world and share my experiences with all of our clients and with all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow travelers worldwide! I look forward to helping you plan amazing trips in the days ahead. For more information, email me at or follow me on Twitter @elitetravelgal. I'd also be thankful if you'd like us on Facebook
