About Lolazahra

  • Last trip
    This summer has included a Carribbean cruise, South Africa and Cartegena, Colombia. Before summer ends will go to Martha's Vineyard and San Diego. Planning for Christmas & Spring Break now!
  • Next trip
    St. Martin for sure and promised the middle child a solo trip to Paris. Dying to plan Rwanda too so that is on the horizon.
  • Favorite destinations
    Italy, South Africa, Laos, Jackson Hole, WY, St. Martin
  • Destination wishlist
    Thailand, Bhutan, Peru, Guatemala, Rwanda, Uganda, Patagonia, Croatia, Iceland -- so many places!
  • Best travel tip
    Do the research, eat with locals, seek out authentic cultural experiences and never hesitate to travel with your kids. They will learn to love and respect other cultures and the human experience as you have.
  • Favorite hotel
    Palazzo Sasso in Ravello, Italy and Cape Grace in Capetown, South Africa
  • Favorite restaurant
    Mama's Fish House in Maui, The Ivy in Beverly Hills, Tamarind in Luang Prabang and Trattoria Lilli in Rome
  • Never travels without
    iPad, first-aid kit, copies of passports, and all necessary chargers and converters to keep the whole family powered up.
  • All-time best travel moment
    Driving across the Namibian desert looking at spectacular scenery with my two girlfriends and our gang of kids; sitting on the steps of the church in Ravello, Italy at night with my family eating gelato and watching my kids play with local Italian kids; having a 5-course meal served on china with beautiful linens on a table set up at the bottom of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, complete with monkeys flying through the trees overhead; jumping and swimming in waterfalls with Laotian families in Laos; fly fishing on the Snake River in Jackson Hole, WY with spectacular mountain views; and last but not least, zipping through Saigon at night with my kids with each of us on the back of motorbikes with XO Tours.
  • Interests and hobbies
    Taking a trip and planning the next, reading, hiking, eating in great restaurants, volunteering, politics, and exploring the world with my kids.
