For The Weekenders: Travel Essentials – The Sequel….

So I took the time out to browse through some of my old posts on here and realised it’s literally been almost half a decade since I’ve done a travel essentials post (feel old yet?).

Yeah.

Time’s have changed.

Let’s fix that.

For The Weekenders: Travel Essentials – The Sequel….

Technological advances over the past few years have made things insanely effortless when it comes to travelling – despite allowing us to have a severe dependence on that same technology.

The only thing that probably hasn’t advanced is airport security…at least not for the better. Who knows, maybe it’ll improve in the future.

Maybe…maybe not.

Anyway. Travel’s gotten easier. A lot easier.

Especially when it comes to electronics.

Travel Essentials 1 – No Strings Attached.

I remember the days of carrying a huge backpack for my photography equipment, numerous cables and cords attached to chargers, and bulky equipment.

With wireless, that’s all gotten so much….neater.

Most noticeably when it comes to headphones, or earbuds.

While I’ve always been neat in appearance, earbuds were always one sticking point that I just couldn’t master keeping tidy.

So naturally, when wireless earbuds and headphones came out, I was elated.

I’ve always been a fan of headphones over earbuds – largely because I have awkward ears that can’t seem to hold onto earbuds.

Plus, when it comes to working out, headphones just seem to stay on way easier.

But when it comes to travel, I strongly prefer earbuds – because they’re small…and easy to carry (like fitting into your pocket).

You get it – different things for different purposes. So when I’m travelling, if I know I’ll be working out, I’ll pack headphones in a carry-on bag, and earbuds in my pocket. If I had to choose in regards to price and quality, these are the ones I recommend…

Bluedio T2S Bluetooth 4.1 Headphones.

For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel, For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, regos life, For The Weekenders, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, travel essentials, best things to travel with, 3 things you need when travelling, 3 things essential for travel, RFID wallet, bluetooth ear buds, bluetooth headphones, wireless ear buds, wireless headphones, wristwatch, wrist watch, travel accessories, must have travel accessories, iMossi RFID, iMossi, airport security meme, TSA meme, Bluedio T2S Bluetooth Headphones

There’s a plethora of reasons why I like these. Besides the insane amount of bass they provide, I’m a huge fan of listening to LoFi music on HiFi headphones – everything’s so clear, the sounds around you disappear.

They’ve got up to 40 hours worth of play time for music, and 45 hours of talk time, with standby time being 1000+ hours…but I think one thing I really love about them is their frequency response. If you know anything about music, you’ll know that a frequency response of 20Hz-20Khz allows for hearing everything the artist wants you to hear.

Combine that with their reasonable price and you’ve got a practical purchase that’s worth its weight in gold.

For earbuds, I recommend the TREBLAB X2 4.2 Bluetooth earbuds.

While not having as much play time as Bluedio, I do like the fact that they have a portable charging box. These workout really well during workouts where I don’t feel like the bulk of headphones, as they’re sweat-proof (meaning I’m not wiping headphones down with a gym towel).

Speaking of bulk, they’re easy to fit in your pocket whether it’s your jeans or coat – just be careful…sometimes they can get lost and you have to rummage (or maybe that’s just me).

They’ve also got a longer play time than others I’ve found which usually top out at 2.5 hours when you’re looking for something reasonably priced.

I’m also really keen on the fact that they come with different ear inserts so they fit everything from the smallest ears to those of Dumbo.

Need I say more?

Travel Essentials 2 – These Days, You Can Make Money Out of Thin Air.

I’m serious. With contactless payment cards, Google, and Apple pay, your money is floating around while you go about your day. If you’ve ever ridden the underground/metro and paid with the reloadable cards they issue, you’ve also probably at some point been too lazy to get your card out and have just pressed your wallet against the machine.

That’s great and all, but sometimes those same machines can accidentally take money from your bank cards as well.

So naturally, when you’re travelling, the same thing can happen if someone trailing behind you wants to make some extra cash for the day.

It’s one of the reasons why a few years back I decided to invest in an RFID wallet – it blocks readers from taking small amounts of cash off your cards.

My favourite out of all the ones I’ve owned?

The iMossi RFID wallet.

For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel, For The Weekenders Travel Essentials The Sequel Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regoslife, regos life, For The Weekenders, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, travel essentials, best things to travel with, 3 things you need when travelling, 3 things essential for travel, RFID wallet, bluetooth ear buds, bluetooth headphones, wireless ear buds, wireless headphones, wristwatch, wrist watch, travel accessories, must have travel accessories, iMossi RFID, iMossi, airport security meme, TSA meme

Sleek. Small. Discreet. I love this one largely because I’m a minimalist.

Wallets have always had a tendency to be fat. Bulky. Cumbersome. Obvious. Just generally something that draws attention to itself when you don’t want it drawing attention to itself.

With plastic being used more and more to pay for things, wallets are now getting thinner. You grab a few cards, some cash, your spouse’s picture you’re currently in a love-hate relationship with, and you’re good to go.

There’s also the introduction of skinny jeans.

I don’t really get why anyone would want pants that you have to try and get off with a chisel and hammer, but these things are popular – so much so that slim fit seems to fit like skinny fit (or maybe that’s just the size of my quads). Meaning you can see everything that’s in a person’s pockets (you know, if you don’t carry a handbag/manbag)

So when you come across something like the iMossi, you realise it’s a smart investment. What are you waiting for?

Travel Essentials 3 – Being Punctual is Important.

So it’s wise to make sure you have something that doesn’t need recharging.

Ditch the Apple Watch, the WearOS, and your mobile phone.

Society already has enough anxiety on its hands – should we really make being nervous about not knowing the time once your battery goes dead something else to worry about?

I’m a huge fan of wrist watches. Wrist watches that have “old-fashioned” batteries. You know, the ones that don’t need replacing but every 2-3 years? Yeah – Apple and Google ain’t got nothin’ on that.

Over the last decade or so, I’ve stuck with two brands…Freestyle and Nixon.

Why?

Because I don’t like taking off my watch.

If I want to go swimming, or jump in the shower, or go diving, maybe wash my car (while whispering sweet nothings into its…side mirrors)…I don’t like taking off something as important as that which keeps my time management on point.

Both Freestyle and Nixon understand those sentiments…because they make waterproof watches.

When I say waterproof, I don’t mean splashing around in a bird bath. I mean real, proper, deep diving watches.

This may seem like a pretty pointless feature but ask yourself this – if you can spend 10 grand on a Rolex that can get messed up if you get the slightest bit rough with it – why not spend less than 2/100ths of that on something that won’t crack under pressure?

I’m all for luxury, and only like to pin that word to things that deserve it…but when it comes to wrist watches…

Function and fashion.

Brains and money.

After all…

Travel should always be stress free.

As always…

Stay cool.

For The Weekenders: Travel Essentials – The Sequel…. is a post from and appeared first on Rego’s Life

For The Weekenders: Rhodes to Greece, Absinthe Gummy Bears, Vinho Fuelled Polo in Argentina…

Hope everyone recovered fully from last week’s St. Patrick’s Day.

You’ll need to if you really want to be in top form for the things suggested in this week’s For The Weekenders.

Let’s start.

For The Weekenders: Rhodes to Greece, Absinthe Gummy Bears, Vinho Fuelled Polo in Argentina…

For The Weekenders Rhodes to Greece Absinthe Gummy Bears Vinho Fuelled Polo in Argentina, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Rhodes to Greece Absinthe Gummy Bears Vinho Fuelled Polo in Argentina, For The Weekenders Rhodes to Greece Absinthe Gummy Bears Vinho Fuelled Polo in Argentina Rego's Life, Rego's Life, regos life, regoslife, Casa Cook, Casa Cook Rhodes, Casa Cook Greece, Argentina Polo Day, Argentina Polo Holidays, holiday ideas, travel ideas, travel ideas argentina, travel ideas greece, Absinthe gummy bears recipe, how to make absinthe gummy bears, how to make absinthe gummies, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, argentina, greece, rhodes, absinthe, alcohol, holiday, vacation, holiday ideas, polo, Polo in Argentina, Sailing in Greece, gummy bears, entrepreneur, leisure, life, holidayideas, travel, luxury, how to make alcoholic gummies, how to make alcoholic gummy bears, gymmy bear flips off Katy Perry

There’s so many things to do in this life it’s a wonder why people ever say they’re bored.

Even though the weather’s been pretty crappy and cold in a lot of different areas, there’s always a sun behind the clouds and warmth beyond the cold.

Like in Greece.

Ahh, Greece…despite what the EU may say about it financially, it’s one of those places that you just have to love.

Which begs the question – who’s more rich – the country with the most financial stability, or the country who’s environment nourishes your heart and soul?

I’d say both.

Why can’t we just have both in one place?

Or more accurately…can’t, or won’t?

Whichever way you want to answer that question, in the end all roads lead to Greece – Rhodes, Greece, that is (see what I did there?).

So here’s what you’ll do. Say you’re taking a personal day…which is really a week, and charter a flight to Rhodes Airport. Don’t worry about packing too much here – just comfy clothes (linen? Maybe a nice light chambray weave?), and other bare essentials.

Check-in to Casa Cook Rhodes, and be escorted to your suite with private pool and terrace that you booked prior to arrival.

I seriously hope you brought someone along with you.

Complete with outdoor rain shower, premium quality mattresses (*wink*), a minibar, and an indoor whirlpool, you’ll find it easy to melt the jet lag away so you can enjoy your stay to the fullest extent humanly possible.

I recommend having a hot shower then going for a quick soak, before refuelling after a (not really at all that gruelling) flight over.

If you can get your play date to join you then hey, the more the merrier.

You’ll probably want to rest up for what lies in store – there’s a lot to do in Rhodes.

Or, if you’re feeling adventurous and athletic, play the night away – just remember to be ready in the morning.

“For what“, you ask?

A full day of sailing…duh.

Well, technically sailing…but mostly lounging, for you.

You’ll have a wonderful little skipper who’ll steer you through various bays and springs, while you lounge on the deck absorbing some seriously glorious sun waves, sipping something cool and refreshing, before convincing your play date to go for a swim, as naturally, while staying dry is great and all, things are much more fun in the water.

After an exhausting day of…relaxing, treat yourself to some locally sourced dinner.

I’m thinking maybe Feta Lagoridani with a salad to start, a mixed grill platter to share for 2, and some Kataifi for dessert…naturally, polished off with an Espresso Highball.

You’ll need a couple of hours to digest all that food you stuffed your smug face with, so feel free to lounge on your terrace, before slipping into the pool for a late night swim with someone sexy.

I recommend sharing a carafe of Pathos, consisting of Metaxa Greek Spirit, Greek dry red wine, some seasonal fruit and traditional botanicals.

A private pool is important.

You want it private.

Why? (Are you really that dense?)

Without sugar coating it…so you can have some private time, of course – without some old retired lady exclaiming, praying for you, then proceeding to throw holy water at you and your special someone.

Nobody likes holy water thrown at them.

Besides being mildly cold (the temperature, not the act), it’s also just like…really inconvenient.

Plus, it kills the buzz from those absinthe gummy bears you made with the silicon mold and absinthe you brought along, in addition to all those “essential items” you stepped out to go shopping for when you touched down.

Wait – you didn’t do that?

You’ve never HAD those?

Jesus Christ…where have you been living? The great depression?

(the 1920’s one – not the 2008 one.)

Well, let’s fix that…for starters, you don’t have to buy them anywhere – plus, they’re not really that easy to buy.

So here’s how to make your own.

You’re welcome.

Absinthe Gummy Bears

Absinthe isn’t something that just has to be enjoyed via a cocktail.

If childhood favorites, and adult indulgences had a baby, it would be this exact gummy bear treat.

You’ll need a few things, but nothing that’s too much of a hassle to acquire:

  • 1 Cup of Water
  • .5 Cup of Absinthe
    • A quality one.
  • .25 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Vitamin B2 Tab
  • Food Coloring (Green)
  • Silicon mold to make all this stuff into actual gummy bears

Take your water and pour it into a saucepan with no heat under it.

Now dust your gelatin into there.

You’ll have to be a little patient, allowing for your gelatin to bloom for about 10 minutes. Only after that, do you want to put some medium heat under it.

While you’re waiting for that to reach a boil, now would be a good time to take that Vitamin B2 tab I told you about and crush it into a powder.

Once you’re done with that, grab your sugar and food coloring, and dust them slowly into the mixture in your saucepan, letting it simmer until the sugar dissolves completely.

Take your saucepan off the heat, then go ahead and add your powdered B2 and absinthe. Stir everything up until it’s all mixed well and the B2 has dissolved completely.

Now for the fun part.

Take your silicon molds and get everything in there. Toss them in the fridge and be patient – considering the sheer amount of gelatin you used, they won’t take long to set.

Fair warning – these gummy bears may provide a hallucinogenic affect.

Just a tad.

(Unless that is, you’re that much of an asshole one actually flips you the bird.)

So don’t go overboard with them, and definitely don’t eat the whole batch. Everything in moderation.

Nonetheless, they’re a great treat to share with your play date when you’re outside lounging in the pool and listening to some choice music.

…and by choice music I mean this.

Not Katy Perry. Not for this mood (sorry, Katy).

If you’re tired of lounging and are up for getting into something a little more adventurous, it’s probably time to kiss Greece goodbye and head Southwest.

As in, Argentina.

If you’re more of the athletic type, then naturally you’ll want a full day of Polo in Argentina.

Not as adventurous as elephant Polo in India, but still just as fun.

Still athletic but never played polo?

No problem – Argentina Polo Day has intensive Polo lessons for you that’ll bring you up to speed in no time.

First thing’s first. Charter a flight to Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport, then get the guys at Argentina Polo Day to arrange transport to get you to this Polo paradise.

It’d probably be a good idea to bring some friends or family along with you, as Polo’s a team sport.

You’ll have some pretty cushy accommodation waiting, in addition to other activities in case you don’t just feel like playing Polo during your entire stay.

You should be flinching – the future is now old man, step aside.

Like watching the pros play the game for you. At night.

Or maybe some tango lessons to impress that person you’ve been seeing for a while now.

If you really feel like spreading your wings a little and taking in the sights, I’d opt for a bird’s eye view with a heli-tour.

Whatever you want to do these guys will do their best to accommodate (just don’t go overboard – they won’t be your therapist for that divorce you’re going through).

You may be a little nervous the first time around. Maybe you’re the shy type, and feel a little awkward when trying something new.

Especially if you’ve got someone you (feel you) have to impress.

Don’t sweat it – Argentina is known for serving up some great liquid courage, so a little vinho (that’s wine), might help before the official match.

I cannot, however, guarantee what the effects of said wine will be like during your match, though.

Either way, that counts as an energy drink, right?

For The Weekenders: First Snow, Spiked Hot Chocolate, and My Hot Toddy…

Yeah.

Anyway…let’s get started.

With the first snow comes cold, and with cold comes…feeling cold.

Naturally, the rational thing to do is warm up – with something or someone.

Like hot chocolate.

Or a hot body.

Or both.

I like both.

Both are fun.

I’m feeling pretty low key this week…thought I’d switch things up.

Get a little more personal.

And at the end of this post let you delve into the life of yours truly.

Creature comforts, personal relationships and all that.

So here’s some winter cocktail ideas with some fun back stories to warm you up during this cold spell.

First Snow

The first snow is always a little, magical. It comes in quiet, when you’re not looking, and then surprises you when you decide to actually observe your surroundings.

The best part is when you catch it untouched – no tire tracks, no footprints, just one pure sheet of flawless wonder.

It’s a moment you can only catch once, and that you try to hold onto for as long as possible in your memory.

Well there’s good news.

There’s a way to make that memory stretch.

With this cocktail, named after (you guessed it) The First Snow.

Break out your best mixology skills here and saunter over to your mini-bar for a quick lesson on how to be more suave during the winter.

Or you know…just look impressive when you’re at your favourite lounge bar with that special someone and want to look like you really know your stuff, as you school the bartender on how to do his job.

You’ll need:

  • Superfine Bar Sugar (for rimming the glass)
  • 1.25 oz. Rye Whiskey
  • 1.25 oz. Winter Syrup
  • .5 oz. Cranberry Juice
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick (for garnish)

First things first…

You’ll have to rim a martini glass with the sugar, then set it aside.

Now grab your whiskey, Winter Syrup, and Cranberry Juice, and pour it all into a cocktail shaker that has ice in it.

Shake all those ingredients well, for around 15-20 seconds…then strain it all into that same sugar-rimmed martini glass you set aside.

Take that cinnamon stick I talked about earlier and place it as a garnish.

Enjoy.

“But Rego, I don’t know how to make Winter Syrup”.

That’s like, drinks 101.

Alright well, stay cool…you can make your own that’ll last you for about a month – and give you an excuse to make more of this winter favorite so…you’re welcome.

So for the Winter Syrup, you’ll need:

  • 2 Cups Granulated Sugar
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Whole Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Allspice
  • 1/8 tsp White Peppercorns
  • 1/8 tsp Cloves

Once you’re done foraging for these necessary provisions, grab a medium saucepan.

Put your sugar, water, cinnamon sticks, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and peppercorns in there.

Now heat everything over a medium heat until you’ve got your water just below boiling, making sure you stir everything well in order to make sure the sugar dissolves completely (this is important, dammit).

Take your saucepan off the heat, and let your syrup cool until it’s room temperature.

Grab a mason jar (it’s really important that it’s a mason jar), pour the syrup in there, seal it, and (gently) toss it in the fridge.

You’ve gotta have some patience here.

Let it sit in your fridge for a week, then strain out the peppercorns, cloves, and cinnamon sticks.

Take another mason jar (a clean one), pour the syrup in it, seal it, and pop it back in the fridge.

Or, you know, use it, for the above cocktail recipe.

Hot chocolate is good.

Liqueur is better.

Hot chocolate spiked with liqueur is great.

When it gets cold, I drink a lot of hot beverages.

A lot.

I’m a fan of coffee and hot chocolate – not really a tea drinker (partly because I suck at making tea – except for spice tea I do a pretty bang up job of making that)…but hot chocolate is one of my all time favourites.

Considering most franchise coffee shops can’t make a good cup of espresso to save their lives (there are few, and they are legends), it’s what I opt for when I’m being asked to sit at a coffee shop and socialise with other people I’ve known for a while…or new ones.

But generally, it’s not socially acceptable to slip the barista some alcohol and ask him to spike your drink.

Nor is it acceptable to spike your own drink, apparently – otherwise that mother with her child wouldn’t be giving me the stink eye whenever I whip out a flask.

When you’re at home though, everything’s fair game.

Wanna act like you’re the only one in line? Go for it.

Spike your hot chocolate? Be my guest.

Walk around naked? Go wild.

You get the idea.

Here’s how to do it (the spiking – not the nudity) properly.

You’ll need:

  • A decent hot chocolate.
    • 8 oz. of it.
  • 1 oz. Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. Nux Alpina Walnut Liqueur
  • A Dollop of Freshly Whipped Cream (do it right – none of this pre-whipped business)
  • Mint Leaves (fresh, for garnish)

Make your hot chocolate – whichever one is your favourite, but just make sure it’s quality.

Add in your hazelnut and walnut liqueur and stir everything together well – use your bar spoon for this.

Top it off with that freshly whipped cream you slaved over making, and garnish with some mint leaves (let’s say, about a sprig).

Done.

There’s a reason for using walnut and hazelnut liqueurs…they add depth to the cocoa base.

This is perfect for when you’re sitting by the fire with your hot toddy – aka that special someone.

Speaking of – I promised you a story with a little insight into me, didn’t I?

Alright…well, let me tell you a bit about my hot toddy (pun intended).

We have a bit of a love-hate relationship…but it’s mostly love.

Mostly.

Rewind 7 years ago.

I was in Seoul visiting a friend when we decided to go out one night and hit up this really great lounge bar (and I cannot seem to remember the name of it – it was in Korean, don’t blame me).

We were walking up to the bar and there she was.

Beautiful.

Sexy.

Hot.

So hot in fact I could swear I heard the song “Hot Tottie” ft. Jay-Z by Usher playing in the background.

Just what the doctor ordered, in fact.

Especially after recently having gone through a breakup and having a hectic rebound streak.

It’s a gift.

I knew right then she was the one.

So I straightened up my posture, walked up to the bar, looked right at her before looking the bar tender dead in the eye and said as calmly and smoothly as possible…

“I’ll have one of those.”

And then proceeded to watch him make me the best Hot Toddy I’d ever had in my life.

….what?

You thought this was a romance story about me and someone I love?

Well no…but it’s about some thing I love…

And that’s pretty much the same thing…right?

No?

You don’t need to have a cold or a sore throat to have this – you just need to have a desire to heal whatever ails you.

For starters, you’ll need:

  • 1.5 oz. Bourbon
  • .5 oz. Lemon Juice (Freshly Squeezed)
  • Boiling Water
  • 1 tsp Clover Honey
  • 3 Whole Cloves
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 Lemon Wedge (for garnish)

You’ll need (obviously) a heated hot toddy glass.

Combine the bourbon, lemon juice, clover honey, cloves, and cinnamon stick in said glass.

Fill the rest of the glass with boiling water, then stir until all the honey is dissolved.

Top it off with a lemon wedge for garnish.

Baby, it’s cold outside.

Stay cool warm.

Take a minute to pause.

Just soak up the silence for a minute (I mean, if it’s quiet around you).

…..

Hear that?

Yeah – that’s Mexico calling.

There’s a mansion with your name on it.

Well, maybe not your name – but it’s sure as hell booked in yours.

Yes, that is a giant chess board in the corner.

So now would be a good time to pack your bags, grab some friends, that special someone, and charter a flight to San José del Cabo International Airport. From there it’s a short 20 minute trip to what I like to call a little slice of paradise.

Or the whole pie, depending on what you book, at Las Ventanas al Paraíso.

You’ve got a few options…but like I said – there’s a mansion waiting for you already.

The Ty Warner Mansion.

Wait – this isn’t your typical, stuffy, boring, jesus-god-why-are-there-so-many-butlers-that-look-like-penguins mansion.

No, instead, this has a real south of the border feel to it (because let’s be honest, what’s referred to as the “Global North” can get pretty stodgy sometimes).

Think 28,000 sq. ft. of sexiness, with things like a glass bottom lap pool, sunken in-pool living rooms, an outdoor pool table, vibrant Indian silk sari upholstery, cinema room, a chess garden, and your very own tequila library.

1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila, floor.

Yeah – tequila library.

Here’s a silk paisley hankie to wipe those tears of elation.

While I’m not one to tell people what to do, here’s what I suggest…

Take off your wrist watch and take things slow.

Enjoy your time here – by starting with asking your personal chef to cook you up something nice post-flight. Hey, flying makes you hungry – plus it’s never healthy to drink on an empty stomach.

Because that’s what you’ll be doing…soon.

While your meal’s getting prepped, freshen up with a shower and change into something more chill – nothing touristy or nerdy *cough*crocs*cough*. Maybe even take a nap, if you’re feeling sleepy.

Once you’re freshened up and fed, rendezvous with your friends and head out to burn off that third serving you asked for (you greedy bastard), by doing a little quad biking across the Los Cabos desert.

Or some surfing. Bit of yachting. Your choice – just wing it.

When you’re tuckered out from doing that, come back and shower again, then feel free to hit up the cinema room (think the sophisticated version of “Netflix and chill”) with that special someone, and settle into a classic film with something of your choice from the mansion’s private cellar – tequila, wine, champagne…whatever your poison is, I’m sure you’ll find it all there.

I think it’s pretty safe to drink and lounge in the water – it’s like chewing gum and walking, right?

If you’re into keeping things a little more low key, I’ve got you covered.

Maybe you just feel like keeping things local. It’s cool – globetrotting isn’t for everyone.

But maybe you’ve also run into a hitch – you’ve gotten all prepared to enjoy a quiet game of golf to yourself, when your friends and that special someone ring you up and ask you to chill on the same weekend, same day.

Saying no might make you come off as anti-social prick.

Shit.

No – keep your cool, don’t panic. In one glorious stroke of genius, you can pull this off, with Urban Putt.

If Tiger Woods, Mad Men, and Chuck E. Cheese somehow got bored and decided to adopt an orphan to raise it, it would turn out to be this exact activity.

Except after 8 p.m. Chuck E. Cheese and Mad Men would like…totally teach it to kick out all the kids after 8 pm.

It’s pretty straightforward. Meet up with everyone, exchange some cash for magical tokens, get your very own height specific putter, and grab a drink and some snacks while waiting for your turn to tee off – mini-golf is a rigorous and popular sport.

They weren’t kidding about the gumball machine, by the way.

But please, refrain from trying to eat them.

While you’re waiting to tee off, I recommend having Rosemary’s Baby (the highball drink, not some poor woman’s actual child) and fried chicken and waffle skewers (topped with Vermont Maple syrup).

If you’re wondering what Rosemary’s Baby is, think Rosemary infused Aperol, whisky, honey, lemon, and soda water.

Yeah – you’re in for a treat.

Once your hunger’s partly satisfied and you’ve got a bit of liquid courage in you, prepare to break out your best putting skills – while your friends may not care how shit you are, that special someone might.

And this course is mechanically clever, to say the least.

Wait one damn minute…skeeball and golf…? You just made my day.

Here’s some fun facts to share around while you’re on the green:

The building you’re standing in is a Victorian one, with many of its historical elements left in tact.

It was vacant for a while before being reopened to house the ingenuity you see laid before you today.

Oh, and it used to be a mortuary.

Which probably explains some of the par-3 holes being skeleton themed.

But that’s just a hunch.

Once you’ve finished convincing that special someone that no, that gentle breeze that went past them wasn’t a ghost (but just your hand), feel free to head upstairs to the course’s restaurant, UP @ Urban Putt.

With the ingredients being organic and locally-sourced, you can feel a little better about stuffing your face.

Start with some UP Poutine (Kennebec fries, beef short rib gravy, garlic and herb marinated cheese curds), or some Tuna Ceviche Tostones – and maybe ask for a Mind Eraser shot if your score sucked.

Snack on those until the pizzas you ordered are ready, and maybe some dessert. I recommend The Birdie and The Back Swing for pizza, and maybe some warm chocolate challah bread pudding for dessert.

That is some thick crust, am I right?

Maybe mini-golf isn’t your thing.

Or you’re just looking for something a little more…edgy.

A little less innocent.

Less innocent being having all the fun, dangerous things in life at your disposal – a lot like those Bond villains you see on film.

Like some Volcano Sandboarding in Leon.

Or having a pet ocelot.

Maybe.

I mean – that’s what I’d do at least.

But if you’re gonna do that, you might as well do it up properly.

Think sandboarding, clay shooting, and your own private compound, at Nekupe.

What villain doesn’t have a compound?

Even if you’re not feeling very villainous, you can always just opt for La Residencia Doña Theresita – but don’t think you’re getting the short end of the stick.

It still comprises 24,000 sq. ft. to do whatever you want in, with the same discretion you’d get from opting for the compound.

Back to the compound.

You’ve got a lot to play around with here. Like the Ty Warner mansion, you’ve got staff at your beck and call, in addition to ATVs/quad bikes at your disposal, epic views of the forest, and much more.

For the adventurous among us, this means we get our share of clay shooting, exploring off-road trails with some quad biking, and having a go at the ropes course.

You can choose to dress for the occasion when it comes to clay shooting, but honestly – like I said earlier, try and keep the nerdy tourist look to a minimum.

Pull.

For the nature lovers among you, there’s bird watching, checking out the farm, a bit of horseback riding, and hanging out with the local monkeys.

Just refrain from getting jealous when one of said monkeys seems a little too keen on your significant other.

When you get tired, you can always wind down at the Casa Club….and by winding down I mean checking out their rum room, getting deep with some poetry reading by the fire pit, and retiring to your room for a nice soak to loosen up all those achy muscles before the “real” fun begins.

For The Weekenders: Assassin’s Creed Adventures, Southern Comforts, Tactical Warfare…

Life can get pretty boring….IF, you don’t know what to do with it.

But humans are pretty creative…most times. The same way some people always seem to create problems for every solution offered, thankfully, there are others who also create different ways to enjoy life, for every location ventured.

Let’s have some fun.

For The Weekenders: Assassin’s Creed Adventures, Southern Comforts, Tactical Warfare…

Let’s be honest – the weather has been pretty crazy (not to mention shitty) around the world for a while now. It’s gotten to the point where if you can’t beat it, it’s better to just go with the flow.

Rather than kicking the snow, cursing the rain, or shaking your fist at the sky, just stop for a minute…

Weep quietly to yourself (but only briefly)…

Take a deep breath…

Then surrender to mother nature with a bit of polar snorkelling.

Into the drink I gooo….

Yes – polar snorkelling.

Head to the South Pole again this year, book an expedition with Aurora Expeditions, and turn some lemons and ice into chilled lemonade (maybe with a sprinkle of vodka? gin?).

Don’t think of it as having to endure more cold weather – no, instead, look at it as a way to try something new, develop a bragging right, and put some hair on your chest (unless you’re a woman – just skip that visualisation).

Just imagine you’re playing Assassin’s Creed 3 as Connor, during the side mission “Ghost Ship” – except you’re actually there.

WHEEE.

You will indeed get to discover ship wrecks, off shore islands, sheltered bays and amongst all that – glorious wildlife, just like in the video game.

The only thing you’ll probably lack is Connor’s ability to kill anything that moves – so please, don’t antagonise the seals.

You’ll need about 6 friends to bring along, mainly so you can show off – but also so you can book the activity.

Just don’t get too adventurous and wander off by yourself – hate to see you get lost.

Holy crap…where the fuck am I…???

Plus it’s a real pain for the guides to try and find you.

If you’re a bit more faint-hearted, or just can’t stand the sight of snow, it’s cool (….mild pun intended), I’ve got you covered.

Maybe you just need a little something to get the blood flowing.

Something steamy.

That’ll really work up a sweat.

Do you see where I’m going with this?

Yes – exactly, a taste of some Southern comforts – like fried chicken sandwiches.

What? You thought I meant something else?

…boom.

Get your head out of the gutter.

Anyway, back to the sandwiches.

There’s this place. It’s done its research on Southern comforts…and it really lets, in the words of Trae Crowder the good south shine through.

South City Fried Chicken has taken parts of the hearts and souls of different states and brought them back to L.A., to create ridiculously tasty, juicy, and flavorful I’ll-take-three-please fried chicken sandwiches (seeing as you’ll be doing the WellRED comedy tour in that area, how about putting in your two cents, Trae – you think they let the flavors of Tennessee shine through?).

You’ve got a lot of options to choose from. If I had to pick my favorites, I’d say try the Austin, TX, New Orleans, LA, and the Birmingham, AL.

For a real cultural explosion, try the New Orleans first. The collard green kimchi and creole remoulade is bound to make its way onto your list as a cheat meal staple.

There’s plenty to choose from though, so don’t just take my word for it.

The best part is, this isn’t your run of the mill chicken burger you pick up at KFC. No, sir. They source sustainably, make the sauces from scratch, and fry your chicken to order.

So show a little patience, and enjoy the end result.

That white sauce, tho.

The south never was one to rush things anyhow.

If your stomach’s full and you wanna head even further south, I recommend Central America. Why? Well…

I’m always a fan of adventure. It probably explains my love for travel, or movies and video games that involve travel.

I’m also a fan of nice things.

So whenever I find out I can get the two combined, it keeps me pretty happy.

There have been some people along the road of life who I’ve met that don’t share those same sentiments.

And that's why we can't have nice things Archer, For The Weekenders Assassin's Creed Adventures Southern Comforts Tactical Warfare, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Assassin's Creed Adventures Southern Comforts Tactical Warfare, For The Weekenders Assassin's Creed Adventures Southern Comforts Tactical Warfare Rego's Life, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, Hacienda Santa Ines, Costa Rica, Hacienda Santa Ines Costa Rica, ATV Costa Rica, Costa Rican Holidays, Aurora Expeditions, Polar Snorkelling, Aurora Expeditions Polar Snorkelling, Antarctica, Arctic, South City Fried Chicken, South City, cheat meal, cheat day, sandwich, comfort food, paintball, snorkelling

Fortunately, the people at Hacienda Santa Inés, share my sentiments, by providing a far, far away from it all (read: those types of people) getaway.

If the rugged outdoors is your thing, combined with lush green outdoor views and all the comforts of modern life, this is the place to be.

So here’s how it’s gonna go down.

Charter a flight to Juan Santamaría International Airport in San José, Costa Rica. Don’t worry about anything from there – Hacienda Santa Inés will take care of transportation from the airport to Santa Inés.

You’ve got a few options – bring a bunch of friends, friends and a play date, a play date, or family and friends (but never a play date and family, else chaos will ensue – and no, I’m not talking about infidelity – shuddup). Or, if you’re married with kids – I mean hey, that works too.

The place is huge, 22,000 sq. ft. to be exact, with 11 bedrooms – so it’d obviously be wise to bring along a good amount of people.

Clearly, there’ll be plenty to do here.

Seeing as it’s private property and not open to the general public, you don’t share it with any other guests, so you’ve got the whole thing to yourself – that and about 25 staff to help out. You know – private chef, massage therapists, chauffeur, the usual.

There’s no check-in/check-out times, proving that every now and then throughout your life, the world does revolve around you.

Seeing as you’ve got all this acreage to explore, you can either run around the yard like Lassie, or do something more sensible.

Opt for the latter, because there’s a lot to choose from.

If it were me, I’d wind down after the flight in the dry sauna, or the Jacuzzi with someone sexy, or go for a massage before the real fun starts.

After, grab something tasty to eat (being a pretty face with an impressive physique takes work), but don’t worry – there’s no fixed times.

Eat what you want, when you want (just say the word with your event coordinator) before lounging and relaxing with your play date and a group of friends in the bar and games room.

I will end you, at table tennis and foosball.

When you’ve had your fill of lounging, take that loosened up body and brave the rugged outdoors.

No, not nature walking (pfft…lame).

No, not the petting zoo (what are you, 5?)

Not anything that has to do with tiny tots or senior citizens (though I’m pretty sure Uncle Carl would break a hip if he hiked anywhere).

First, get your adrenaline flowing with a bit of quad-biking. Hop on some ATVs with a few friends and go wild, until you arrive in unfamiliar territory.

Then, prepare yourself…for battle.

Someone’s about to get fucked up if they don’t pay attention in 3…2…1…

You’ve got 100,000 sq. ft. to run around in with this one.

So now would be an ideal time to put all you’ve learnt from Sun Tzu’s The Art of War and Machiavelli’s The Prince to good use, in combination with your mad paintball gun skillz.

You could just wing it, and hope for the best…before falling into a trap like a wide-eyed doe and quickly getting flanked from all sides…

Shit. Well, it was good knowing you, boys…

Or you could strategise, wait patiently, and claim your kill(s) by slowly picking them off one by one…then proceed to show off your victory strut when you’ve finally tagged the last adversary.

When you’ve had enough fun, retire to your bedroom for a shower, hot cup of chocolate-infused coffee, and stare out at the amazing view that lays before you…

For The Weekenders: Lion King Lodges, Subway Station Parties, Cast Away Escapades…

There are a lot of great places to explore out there.

A lot.

So why limit yourself to your side of the world?

It’s time to get…unconventional.

For The Weekenders: Lion King Lodges, Subway Station Parties, Cast Away Escapades…

I used to be a fan of Lion King (don’t judge), when I was a kid.

The wild life, wide open spaces, and the thought of “no worries” was very appealing at such a tender age.

I watched the movie and enjoyed spending hours of my day playing the video game on Sega with a friend (and by “playing” I mean us impatiently and quietly hoping one of us would kill off our character in hopes of our turn coming around quicker).

Back in the day, this was the shit…also our equivalent of 1080p quality (if you think this is bad, imagine FIFA).

So naturally, when I discovered there was a luxury lodge in Botswana where you could get up close and personal with lions, zebras, and cheetahs, I was very much:

Qorokwe Camp promises to deliver this, and more.

Fun fact: “Qorokwe” means “the place where the buffalo broke through the bush into the water.”

You can use that to sound interesting, cultured, and suave when you’re convincing your play mate to go with you on the trip.

You’re welcome.

This is the perfect opportunity to get away from all the “busyness” of urban society, while at the same time letting that special someone know that yes, while you may be brilliant at business, money, and knowing how to make more of said money, you’re not just some boring numbers person and you do like to sometimes live dangerously.

Across 62,692 acres there’s more wildlife than you can shake a stick at, inlcuding a lion pride made up of just over a dozen lions, allowing you to step into the Lion King story – but without all the family dysfunction, treachery, and betrayal (hint: don’t invite Uncle Carl this time).

This is a representation of the circle of life, Simba. The circle of life is way more fucked up than you think, little one.

You’ve got two choices for accommodation – a family tent suite with its own pool, or a regular tent suite, not as big, but just as nice. So if you’re the family type, obviously opt for the former…but if you’re here for a sneaky, on-emergency-call-only get together, the latter will do just fine, as you’ll probably spend more time running around the other facilities they have, thanking the architect (and landscape architect) for mixing nature with artistry.

After going for your morning swim and having some breakfast, if you’re feeling adventurous, the camp is far from being in short supply of adventurous things to do.

For the less-adventurous-vegan-mocha-ugg-boot-triple-latte types, there’s bird watching, nature walks, and plonking yourself in a dugout canoe while being…boated around to look at the surrounding wildlife.

Guide, to self: “I am getting damn tired of haulin’ these heavy ass-…” Tourist: “Isn’t that zebra BEAUTIFUL?!?!” Guide: “Uh, YES. Bedazzling, even.”

But for the braver among us, there are night drives. The perfect time to see those “I wear my sunglasses at night” type creatures that normally shy away during daylight hours.

This means it’s also the perfect time for those *rustle in the bush* “EEK! What was that?” *more rustling* “nothing, don’t worry, just…nestle right in here – you’ll be safe” moments.

If you lost your phone in this area, good luck going back for it.

See where the wild things are, what they are, and how very much the opposite of assumed “shithole” countries they’re in.

If the call of the wild isn’t your thing, and you instead feel like settling for the “safer” (pfft…lame.) containment of the city, then this next one is for you.

Bar hopping can get pretty boring. Boring for you, boring for your friends, boring for your date.

So when your sexy someone slips into the passenger’s seat of your car with a look of “where-are-we-headed-tonight-and-it-better-be-good” you have two options:

  1. Proceed to piss her off more with a look of “I don’t know”.
  2. Ask her what she’d like to do already having a general idea of what her scene is and what she’s into…only to surprise her by saying you’ve decided it’ll be more fun to party in a subway station.

If you went with option 2, now would be a good time to catch her before she hits you with her bag and stomps off…and assure her that no, it’s not the subway station party that involves Four Loko and partying with vagabonds.

It’s this kind.

Far less sketchy, far more artistic, Station1640 in L.A. is the mystical unicorn kind of a place that you can take a date to for an experience of a dance club, art gallery, and bar rolled into one.

I’m not kidding.

The graffiti is literally done by artists – these aren’t your cheap, poorly spelled “fuk u” dick drawing street tags you see the city constantly trying to cover up. You’ll be looking at works of art from people like Obey Giant, David Flores, and King Cre8, to name a few.

This is no place to go sticking gum on the walls.

Refined but nonetheless somewhere you can let your hair down, so to speak (or get her to let hers down), it reminds me a bit of Ageha and those professional male and female pole dancers (professional being a severe understatement).

They’ve got mixologists as opposed to bartenders – and if you know anything about drinking, there is a vast difference between the two. The former is the “say no more fam” while the latter is more “…so you want vodka, is that what you’re saying?” when you ask for a drink that involves setting an ingredient or two on fire.

If you really like the place, you can book it for private hire and invite as many people as it can handle…but just remember you’ve booked it, not bought it, so while you’ve grown quite fond of it no, it’s not yours to keep and you eventually will have to let the regular people have their fun.

This is one time a good thing must sadly, come to an end.

If you like the feeling of running things though, and haven’t satisfied your appetite just yet, I’ve got something bigger for you.

Yes, bigger.

If booking a club isn’t enough for you, you can always just book an island.

Land ahoy.

There are two types of escapades.

One that’s secret and fun, which only you and a select few friends know about.

And the other, that’s considered “shenanigans” and gets leaked to the media (depending on your level of importance – in your case, maybe not so much), turning into a…fiasco.

Either way, both are the type that with Calala Island in Nicaragua, can run along the lines of “what happens in Calala Island, stays in Calala Island”.

And with Carlos. Carlos knows what’s up (but he ain’t no snitch).

It’s so remote you’ll need to charter a flight to Augusto C. Sandino International Airport (In Managua), before (preferably) getting a chopper ride over to the island.

Better bring some friends. Including yourself and that special someone Calala accommodates 8, with 4 beachfront suites and about two rugby teams worth of staff to handle your every need (though I can’t promise they’ll help with your personal life – you’ll need a therapist for that).

Here’s the best part – you can do whatever you want. Everything’s all inclusive.

Literally.

From the food you eat, to the activities you choose to partake in, and the drinks you choose to throw back, it’s all included in the price you’re charged – so go wild.

I mean…I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have a cheat meal or three.

Wing it.

Whatever you want to do, the staff will tailor things according to your wants. This is no cookie cutter holiday.

Get creative (creative – not weird), indulge, and rest in the satisfaction of knowing that you have a little secret that no one can take away from you (given you don’t blab about it on Facebook, genius).

For The Weekenders: Cashmere Nights, Bali Penthouses, Japan By Rail – 007 Style…

Though I normally don’t delve into politics in this blog, I will take the opportunity to tie them into this week’s For The Weekenders post.

Considering all the shittiness that’s ensued and been encouraged since last year due to either apathy or just pure hatred (read: stupidity), sometimes the more sensible among us just need to travel to other lands to remind ourselves that no, the entire world isn’t like that and yes, politicians are not exempt from being considered, or just being for that matter – ‘bat shit crazy’.

Here’s a few places to put the human back into humanity and nurture back into…nature.

For The Weekenders:
Cashmere Nights, Bali Penthouses, Japan By Rail – 007 Style…

For The Weekenders Cashmere Nights Bali Penthouses Japan By Rail 007 Style, Rego's Life For The Weekenders Cashmere Nights Bali Penthouses Japan By Rail 007 Style, For The Weekenders Cashmere Nights Bali Penthouses Japan By Rail 007 Style Rego's Life, Rego's Life, For The Weekenders, For The Weekenders Rego's Life, Rego's Life For The Weekenders, Il Fieniletto, Il Fieniletto Alta Badia Dolomites, Il Fieniletto Alta Badia, Il Fieniletto Dolomites, Homebase Abroad, Como Uma Canggu, Como Hotels, Como Hotels Bali, Como Hotels Uma Canggu, Bali surfing, surfing in indonesia, JR East Shiki-shima, Shiki-shima Train, Train Suite Shiki-shima, Japan by rail, ski chalet Italy, skiing in italy, snowboarding in Italy, Dolomites Italy, Alta Badia Italy, Bali Indonesia, Indonesia, Northern Japan, Japan

Winter.

One of those seasons where all you want is hot chocolate, hot saunas, and hot people to wrap your arms around because, “baby, it’s cold outside“.

Wait for it…there’s a girl version too (…don’tgettriggered…)

Yes indeed, the perfect time for appreciating all the cozy comforts in life. Fireplaces, plush sofas, and cashmere covers.

Speaking of – if there’s one thing I like more than cashmere cardigans and pullovers – it’s cashmere covers. Il Fieniletto delivers just that, and more, near Alta Badia in the Dolomite mountains of Italy.

This 9 bedroom, 9 bath villa is the perfect excuse for when you need a break from it all. Grab some friends (up to 17 of them) and a play date, charter a flight over, and from there go wild. If you have no clue where to start, here’s an idea…

Take the day off and make sure you’re on emergency call only. “Emergency” being defined as an alien invasion, earth’s sudden teleportation to another galaxy, or your great, great grandma’s untimely passing (knowing full well, she already has).

Charter a flight with AeroPrivateJet – try the Bombardier Global 7000, or perhaps the Embraer Legacy 650E (you’ll have to cut 5 friends from the group with this one). Grab your bags, some cash, and your special someone before meeting up with your friends and hopping on board.

Them: “So…so are private jets our thing now?” You: “…did you not grasp that from the context?”

Land at Venice Marco Polo Airport and take in the sights for a couple of days, before venturing out to Cortina (where your private, freshly rented villa Il Fieniletto is).

You’ll have a lot of rooms to choose from. A lot. I recommend bedroom #3 on the ground floor, or bedroom #2 on the upper level in the Mansarda (which is really just a fancy way of saying “attic” – but don’t worry, this attic is fancy).

Whichever room you choose, all of the bedrooms have sexy, cozy, cashmere (or fur) covers atop of sexy, cool linen bedding, for you to rest your (hopefully) sexy, athletic bodies.

Athleticism is important. Because after all, you’re in a ski resort area – so I’d like to assume you’ll be skiing snowboarding.

There’s also an elevator (or, “lift”), so you don’t have to worry about carrying your special someone’s luggage up or down a set of stairs (good help is so hard to find these days).

Speaking of help, there’s a live-in cleaner, cook, and wonderful little butler available at your beck and call (just don’t ring any bells at them – I am beyond confident you will get slapped).

One of the three can take care of some shopping for you if you feel like being lazy, or if you’re in the middle of impressing that date you brought along as you shred out some romantic song on the ukulele you packed.

The villa can have certain sections of it closed off, to ensure privacy for those intimate moments, or when you just don’t feel like hearing the chatter of everyone that you invited.

When you feel like relaxing to take the edge off from the jet lag, shuffle down to the lower level of Il Fieniletto and indulge in the heated pool, sauna, or hydro-massage options available.

Once you get sick of being inside and need some fresh air, explore the surrounding area. If you still don’t know where to start, pick up a few Dolomiti SuperSki passes, so you no longer have an excuse to be bored (who needs Swiss alps when you have Italian?).

You’ll have access to the Sella Ronda ski tour, which when done correctly turns into a 2 day activity…well worthy of a cocktail party story, or at least a custom-made coffee table book.

But let’s say you’ve already satisfied that winter sports urge. Or let’s just say you’re not a fan of cold weather.

Then Bali is your next choice – but if you’re going to Bali, you better do it right, because dammit it’s Bali.

If you’re a fun in the sun, surf and sand, fall asleep after a good swim type of person, Como Uma Canggu is probably more your taste. So here’s how it can go down…

You’ll charter a flight from wherever you are to Ngurah Rai International Airport. Then it’s a 60-minute car ride from there to Uma Canggu, which Como can arrange for you, if you’re feeling lazy.

Or, see if you can shave those numbers down with a helicopter ride, if you’re feeling impatient.

You’ll also book the accommodation of your choice.

You’ve got a fair few options…but my guess is the first thing that’ll pique your curiosity is the penthouse – there’s 12 of them, and they don’t disappoint.

With 3 bedrooms, a living room, ocean views for miles from your own balcony, and an outdoor rooftop pool, you’ll feel like you’re in a home away from home when your bags hit the floor.

You: Ugh…that chopper ride over was *exhausting* Play date: …it was way under an hour. You: Well, Mary, sometimes it’s exhausting being awesome. Play Date: It’s not that exh- You: *glare* Play Date: ….

Each penthouse comes with it’s own wonderful butler who can make your stay more comfortable, rain showers, and a wireless surround sound system so you can play this across the place when you’re having your morning coffee as you stare out at the breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean…

…coffee in one hand, arm around a sexy someone in the other.

If you’re not feeling as elaborate, or feel like doing things yourself without the help of your own private butler, opt for the Uma Pool Residences or a suite instead. They’ve got plenty to offer and are just as comfortable. I recommend the Batu Mejan Suite.

Obviously you won’t want to be stuck inside all day (or do you?) so you’ll have to figure out what to do outside of your suite penthouse.

After some coffee and breakfast, you’ll wanna start things off right.

If you’ve been hitting the gym pretty hard, now’s a good time to use that as an excuse and go for a Balinese Spice Body Mask, and refresh those tired muscles.

No, it’s not just for women or the modern gay man. Muscles get tired and hey, last time I checked, you’re no Clark Kent.

Once you’re all loosened up, book a surfing excursion with a private guide and hang ten. You’ll be able to check out Bali’s best spots for some good waves with a private car hire for about 10 hours.

After a long day of surfing, you’ll probably be ready to wind down and grab some more food.

While I could suggest you check out the Como Beach Club, I’d say now’s the perfect time to do some exploring yourself – have a stroll around the local area and see what’s good.

If you’ve brought friends along, head back to your penthouse and live it up with some late night swimming, drinks, 24 hour room service, and your own private party, while rocking out.

My guess is, you’ll be staying here a couple of days so feel free to check out what else they’ve got available and go from there. There’s really no wrong answer here.

If you’re not into villas or penthouses though, don’t worry. There’s something for everyone in this For The Weekenders.

Maybe you’re one of those people who always feel more comfortable being perpetually on the road.

Or tracks.

Your choice.

If you’re up for feeling a little like James Bond in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, or Spectre (that man’s been on a lot of trains), and so happen to be a train enthusiast, then Train Suite Shiki-Shima is for you.

Ahh…Japan.

It’s the one place for me, where travelling by rail is comfortable and memorable.

And let’s be honest – nothing’s more memorable than having your own deluxe suite in a train that’s built like a hotel on…rail wheels.

So this is what you’ll do…

Book a 4-day, 3-night trip for this year.

This thing sells out fast so plan for the future, amigo.

Hop a jet to Narita International Airport. Let’s throw a little healthy competition in the mix – try out Apollo Jets this time. Then grab a private car (or if you’re feeling like regular people, and really a train enthusiast, a fast train) into Tokyo.

All you really need are your bags and a play date – the rest is taken care of. Make your way to Ueno Station, because this is where you’ll be departing.

Lounge for a bit at Prologue Shiki-Shima – a wonderful thing of a place that gives you a taste of what the train ride will be like before boarding.

Then prepare yourself for the epic journey that follows through the north-eastern region of Japan. Epic is an understatement.

Better bring your best DSLR/SLR, because you’ll have the chance to capture plenty of memorable shots when visiting the plethora of different stations, checking out unique to Japan accommodation, and trying some serious local cuisine from both on and off the train.

Like this Inn tucked away in a forest, at Zaborin.

Even with all that, travelling by train may get a little tiring. When going from station to station, you may want to relax a bit.

So opt for either the Shiki-Shima or Deluxe Suites. There’s something about your own Japanese soaking tub or fireplace that just makes the experience that much more desirable.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Once you’re refreshed and ready, feel free to saunter over to the observatory car, before heading to the lounge after a nice meal on board, while waiting for your arrival at the next station.

Travelling by train just got easier.

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Luxury Swiss Manors, Underwater Dining, Royalty for a Weekend…

With summer fun still pressing on, I figure why not continue the trend of travel. With 7.5 billion people and a world that’s meant to be explored, planes were designed for a reason. So don’t even think about touching that TV remote, put down the junk food, get out from under your rock, and get to exploring – humans were made to travel. Let’s go.

Museums. Remember those? You might have been to a museum in your life at least once – maybe part of a grade school trip, maybe as an adult, or maybe you pulled a Ferris Bueller at some point. I like to think of museums as a collection of snapshots in time – because well, that’s what they are. Obviously.

But what’s better than your standard museum?

Luxury Swiss Manors turned into museums. Or in this case, Charlie Chaplin‘s Manor turned museum, in Switzerland.

I could roll around on that lawn for hours.

Ever so affectionately called Chaplin’s World, this little gem gives you a warm tour of Charlie Chaplin’s life. So if you’re a producer, director, screenplay writer, or even just a film enthusiast, you’ll feel right at home, while you’re guided through, well, Chaplin’s old home (not so fun fact: in the 40’s Chaplin was, unfortunately forced to leave the United States and settle in Switzerland).

“They just don’t understand art, Oona.”

So here’s how to get this trip done right. You’ll book a few nights at the Modern Times Hotel, where you’ll stay in possibly a regular (read: Superior) room, or preferably a Junior suite (all mattresses have cashmere wool so you can sleep like an oversized baby).

True to their word, the floors are swathed in white oak and stone, and you can get fresh water from their spring in Les Pléiades with bubbles (bubbles optional).

You can also grab some breakfast before heading to the museum, to be sure your energy reserves are fully topped up before venturing on to the museum.

Alright so this is where the magic begins. Things get a bit intimate here as you’ll be learning about Chaplin’s personal life; his childhood, his sense of style, taste, his family man side, so to speak…and let me tell you, the man had style.

Having a look over his personal belongings (intended to sound waaay less creepy than it did) you can see it was a classic style nonetheless, timeless, but relatable; it’ll feel like you’re visiting an old friend, rather than a manor turned museum.

Except this…unless running into Uncle Einstein making silly faces at himself in the mirror is your thing and reminds you of home, then that’s great too.

You’ll also get a chance to see his work…and by work I mean a taste of what it was like to work in film back in his era. From a replication of movie sets to a behind-the-scenes look into how brilliant movies are made, this is your chance to step back in time and experience it all.

And hey, if you’re really feeling nostalgic, bring your grandma along…I mean, you know, if she’s that old.

….great grandma maybe?

If she’s alive.

Just…you get what I mean – bring someone old along if you want.

Alright so by this point you’re probably hungry – well there’s a magnificent little cafe restaurant at the centre of the park (yes, there’s a park – I’ll get to that in a minute, be patient) called “The Tramp“.

You can grab something light at the cafe (maybe a nice hot chocolate), or something a bit more filling from the restaurant menu (I recommend the Macaronis Alpine Style – mostly because I’m 5 at heart most days and really like macaroni).

Aside from the food I’d really recommend you just take the time to soak up the decor – the old style cameras and large wooden beams make the place feel like a blast from the past.

Once you’re done chewing, and sipping, and lounging, it might be a good idea to stretch those legs in Chaplin’s estate – in simpleton terms, the park.

With impressive views of Lake Geneva and the mountains, it’s a perfect opportunity to indulge in some nature and forget the craziness (read: unnecessary busyness) of civilisation.

Or, you could choose the less adulting type option and run through the whole thing singing like you’re in the film “The Sound of Music”.

Your choice.

One more thing – take some time to check out the Montreux Riviera region as well. You won’t be disappointed.

If you’re not into museums, that’s fine. Maybe you have the outlook of “hey, it’s summer…and dammit, I want beaches. And sand. Sandy beaches. And underwater dining. Wait…”

Yeah. That’s a real thing. I’m gonna take you back to the maldives (but not the same place, so chill out). If you liked what Mexico had to offer last week, and Thanda Island the week before, then you’ll love what’s in store at Hurawalhi Maldives.

Attractive travel partner not included.

First, you’ll want to charter a flight to Male’ International Airport. Then, from that airport, you’ll charter another flight (via seaplane) to Hurawalhi Maldives – scenic doesn’t even begin to describe the 40-45 minutes flight over. Hopefully you’ve picked which villa you want – there are a plethora of them to choose from.

You want a beach? Beach with sunset and pool? Ocean? Ocean with sunset? Ocean with pool? Ocean with a sunset and a pool? Am I confusing you?

Don’t worry – the main thing is you’ve got options – just like in Pitbull’s song – except, different options in this case…or maybe both – which reminds me, this is an adults only getaway, no kids, sorry.

This also means you’ve got to grab someone to tag along – start looking through that little black book.

I recommend the Ocean Sunset Villa. Swimming in the ocean is like, way better.

But you’re not here to just sleep – you’re here to enjoy yourself. With loads of activities to do, there’s no excuse to be bored.

If for the first day or two you wanna recover from jet lag, and keep things chill, they’ve got a sports ground, games room (Pacman anyone?), and fitness centre, all neatly within reach.

You will never beat my high score in pinball. Ever.

Holy crap…is that Nemo?

Naturally, after that, you’ll probably want some protein and or carbohydrates – meaning food…but you may not want to get out of the water just yet.

Queue 5.8 Undersea Restaurant – a place where you can sit back, watch Nemo and his little school friends swim by, sip on your favourite wine, and enjoy some quality fuel before your next adventure.

Hiiii friend…would you care to talk about Jesus today?

They’ve got a great lunch menu, and options for vegetarians and vegans as well, if you’re into that; and if you’re looking to impress that special someone you brought along with you, there’s a fabulous little romantic dinner all planned out too.

If eating underwater isn’t your thing, you can always check out the Aquarium Restaurant and Bar, featuring a Teppenyaki grill for those of us who want a slice of Japan while already having a slice of the Maldives. The menu is sustainable, meaning tree huggers can have their cake and eat it too – all while enjoying a fantastic ocean view.

After a full day of living life the way it’s supposed to be lived, there’s always the option to retire to your villa and relax with some good music, a nice wine, and maybe even go for a late night swim so you can show off that summer body you keep maintained all year round.

Just don’t swim right after you eat…cramping up like a senior citizen can really kill the mood.

Let’s say you wanna do it up bigger though.

Bigger?” You ask.

Yes, bigger.

Ever wanted to live like royalty?

Well now you can – at Castel Porrona, in Italy.

This is far from an overstatement – you can actually book the entire castle if you’ve got a good bit of people you fancy entertaining. With a plethora of suites and living areas to choose from, everyone can have their own space.

There’s also a wonderful little private butler to bring you bubbly, while you’re in a bubbly bath.

So if you’ve got a family reunion you’ve been made the head of to organise, and really don’t like Uncle Carl and Aunt Sue, you can just put them in the servants quarters.

Or, to avoid being cut out of anyone’s will, you can book them a luxury suite/room in The Relais – the surrounding village – that will impress – without giving the impression that you’re not too fond of them.

…I feel like I’m in Assassin’s Creed II.

The castle itself comes with a large kitchen, and private chef to whip up whatever your heart desires, a private butler to answer your (almost) every request, and endless panoramic views offered up by taking a short trip up to the towers.

The rooms and suites outside of the castle and throughout the village are pretty decked out as well, with ridiculously supple bed linen, jacuzzis, and enough fine furniture to satisfy even the pickiest family member.

If you feel like treating yourself to some pampering (or down time away from everyone), there’s an abundance of wellness options to choose from at Agua Spa at The Relais. You can enjoy a taste of Morocco while discovering their sauna, heated salt water pools, steam baths, and so much more.

So if you decide to bring that special someone along, and want to escape the maddening 21 questions about marriage your family keeps throwing at you, you guys can always head for a Signature Agua Spa Couple treatment – where after indulging in a few bottles of wine and food bathed in olive oil during your stay, you can then bask and be massaged in said wine and olive oil…just in like, a way more scientific, homeopathic way.

If there’s ever a perfect opportunity to excuse indulging, this is it.

Fit for a king (or queen).

As always…

Stay awesome.

For The Weekenders: Luxury Swiss Manors, Underwater Dining, Royalty for a Weekend… is a post from and appeared first on Rego’s Life

For The Weekenders: Upscale Italian Road Trips, Sexy Beach Front Bungalows, Rugged Alaskan Heli-Fishing

It’s the weekend again and it’s time to think about things outside of work. It’s also been pretty hot lately – so when I think of summer and lounging and relaxing…the first things that come to mind are ice cool, refreshing drinks (mojito maybe? Or a nice lemongrass tea?), long summer drives, shady spots to relax in under the clear blue sky, and fishing – so much fishing (I like boats – so what).

Which is precisely why I’ve tailored this For The Weekenders for such things. You read last week’s For The Weekenders post – and if you liked that one then well, it’s time to take another step into my ridiculously epic outlook on enjoying life this week as well. Enjoy.

For The Weekenders: Upscale Italian Road Trips, Sexy Beach Front Bungalows, Rugged Alaskan Heli-Fishing

So it’s summer – the perfect time for holidays and travel (though personally, I think anytime is the perfect time for either). While you could do the next few things I’m about to suggest by yourself, I’m gonna say that a) they’re so much fun words wouldn’t be able to describe the experience and b) think of these as perfect opportunities to treat someone to something special.

Or just treat yourself. And make it look like you’re treating someone (hey it beats looking like a lonely rich bastard/bitch – or does it?). Either way, if you plan on treating anyone, you’ve gotta make some proper effort – so let’s start racking up those frequent flyer miles shall we?

Depending on what you’re into, you’ve got a few of options – so it’s first stop Italy.

As in, touring Italy in a stupidly high-priced Ferrari. Now wait – I know, I’ve mentioned before I’m usually not into luxury sports vehicles, more of a custom made or classics fan, but I’ve also mentioned in the past that there are some things that are just too good to pass up – this being one of them.

So here’s how it’s gonna happen – you’ll grab your sexy someone, and book a 3 day, Italia in Ferrari self-drive tour with the guys over at Red Travel…but don’t worry about getting on a regular airline, with regular, sweaty, depressed people, or fat, bald, miserable businessmen in first-class.

No instead, you’re taken care of with a private jet at your disposal to come pick you up – in either Paris, London, Frankfurt, or Moscow – and drop you off to Florence International Airport.

So all you have to do is sit back, sip [name your favourite drink here], and listen to the sounds of Lounge Fantasia, while staring out the window at white, fluffy clouds, before joining the mile high club (and if you’ve already joined then hey, good for you, slugger).

Fuck these peasants.

That’s not the only thing the tour includes though – with a 5 star hotel suite for accommodation, private car for checking out the area/transfer service from/to the airport, being able to pick and choose your Ferrari for the tour, and the ability to tailor your trip even further to your liking – well, it’s a bit like Christmas arriving early in a tiny, red little box.

So you’ll touch down in Florence – then what? Well after being driven to your hotel, it’s the perfect time to shower, power nap, and hit the gym – before hitting Florence for some sight-seeing via private car.

Starfishing optional.

Towards the end of the night I’d recommend you avoid having too big of a sexy party – you’ll need the sleep for the tour tomorrow and hey, no one likes someone who drives like a baby drunk off Benadryl.

Alright, you managed to fend off the bartender offering you another drink and your weekend accessory pawing at you, good job. Now’s the moment you’ve been waiting for: picking your very own Ferrari to drive around like the boss you are. *Drum roll*….

I feel like the host of Let’s Make a Deal. Or was it the Price is Right? Just…I feel like a game show host, for the millennials who don’t get it.

So you’ll take your pick – the Ferrari 488 Spider, California T, 458 Speciale, or 458 Spider. Any one of them will be a thrill to ride, backed by a 100% guarantee you’ll have a massive sexy party that same night.

Her: I’m gonna marry hiiiiim. Him: I’m getting laaaaiiiid…also married…probably….maybe….*shrugs* meh, who knows.

From there, it’s hitting the road and touring around San Gimignano, Siena, and other sexy sounding Italian places you might not have heard of before, with route plans that have more S-curves, hair pins, and sharp corners than you can shake a stick at (because driving in a straight line is just boring).

“Love your curves and all your edges.”

After a full day of driving you can either let the fun end there (why would you though?) – or if you wanted things to be more interesting – take advantage of the tailoring options you picked including (but certainly not limited to) yachting, hot air-ballooning, and more. There are literally loads of tours to choose from so don’t be a boring bastard, live a little – that money isn’t going to spend itself (but the tax man will if you don’t).

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

But maybe all that’s too stuffy for you – maybe you just want something chill, low key, somewhere where you can’t be found (angry exes can just be the absolute bane of existence sometimes), somewhere to go alone (or not).

So you’ll opt for a nice little secluded island on the on the Sian Ka’an biosphere coastline (read: Mexico) where you’ll book a wonderful little beach front bungalow with KanXuk Blue Maya Resort, complete with a porch to sit out on and sip mojitos while watching that model you chatted up at Cancun International Airport emerge from the water Baywatch-style.

I recommend Nojol (complete with private garden)…but Lak’in does a pretty good job too.

They’ve got some pretty epic activities available, including whale shark tours – or swimming with sea turtles, for those of you that are frightened by the word “shark”.

If you just feel like a chill stay though there’s a spa and fully stocked bar, so you can sit and enjoy a nice cold one while looking out at the sunset and having the backdrop song “I Think I’m Gonna Like it Here” to Elvis Presley’s Fun in Acapulco play in your head.

Similar to White Desert in the last For The Weekenders post, and considering there are only 18 villas and beach front bungalows combined, it’s still pretty nice and quiet with minimal worries about unpleasant human contact…meaning plenty of privacy for when you want to get away from it all.

But maybe private jets, Ferraris, and beaches still aren’t your thing (you picky S.O.B.)…and maybe you’re the more…outdoorsy type. So this last one’s for the rugged, adventurous, but sensitive soul type – the ones that can wrestle and catch a fish with their bare hands, but secretly listen to Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman” in their bathroom with the air vent on at full blast to drown out you singing along in the shower every morning (you know who you are).

Then I suggest you prepare yourself for mountains, wildlife, and a bit of classic heli-fishing at Tsaina Lodge.

…the heli-fishing bit kind of threw you, didn’t it? Well to answer your question no, I have not been drinking nor am I tripping balls – heli-fishing is a real thing, and no lodge does it better than Tsaina Lodge in Alaska (though I am enjoying some lovely coconut water at the moment…*sips*).

*whips fishing rod back in an attempt to perfectly place near group of fish…hooks pilot’s eye by mistake instead…*

Along with heli-fishing there’s also heli-hiking – but if you’re not interested in anything with the word “heli” in it, that’s fine too – though both are heli-cool (get it? Heli-cool? HELLA cool? no? really? god you’re slow…keep up).

They’ve got regular fly fishing for when you want to be a normal, boring person….wildlife viewing where you can potentially snap a picture of a grizzly bear and insult his grizzly wife (if you’ve had one too many melon balls) at a safe distance then brag to your friends who stayed behind at the lodge about it later…

Dude, I can’t believe you called that bear’s wife a hairy bitch…so not cool man. Never going nature watching with you again.

…or for the more sensible among us, you can just opt for mountain biking. There are a plethora of activities going on at Tsaina, all of which you can explore yourself.

Once you’re done exploring you can shoot some pool at the bar, before being tricked by your newfound Alaskan friend to ring the naval bell near said bar….which basically means you’ve gotta buy a round for everyone in the place (an Alaskan tradition, no less).

Or if you’re clever enough to avoid being fooled, you could always grab some sushi, Tsaina style.

Platter? Pfft…fuck platters.

Once you’re done fighting over that last piece of tuna sushi, you’ll probably end up heading back to your room (with or without that *special* company you brought along for the trip) – complete with a Tempur-pedic mattress and soft, cosy bath robes.

For The Weekenders: High Flying in Dubai, Secret Tanzanian Getaways, Tucked Away Antarctic Luxury…

Well it’s Thursday, the kind of wind down point in the week where people focus less on work and more on enjoying themselves. I hope everyone is having a great week and are in a traveling kind of mood – because that’s what this For The Weekenders is all about. So while it’s time for me to dust off my keyboard and flex the old writing muscles, sit back and prepare yourselves for what’s in store. Enjoy…

For The Weekenders: High Flying in Dubai, Secret Tanzanian Getaways, Tucked Away Antarctic Luxury…

There’s a point some people reach in their lives where they feel a need to connect with themselves on a higher level…which usually comes with a requirement to “get away from it all.”

On the other hand, in a world where a “Culture of Busyness” has emerged (where “busy,” but not necessarily productive, is becoming a status quo), there seems to be an increasing trend where some tend to view being busy as a bragging right.

I just call it being dumb.

So for the more sensible among us, fear not – amidst this delusional madness, sanity still exists. Yes, you can escape from it all after a smart day’s work, in the most discreet and ninja-like fashion, and fortunately there are places like Dubai that catch my drift and understand exactly how to get away in style.

You know those movies you see where some ridiculously well dressed person of influence saunters onto a helipad and flies away at his or her whim? Well, if you don’t feel like going through the process of buying your own helicopter (pfft. lame.), don’t worry, Dubai RTA (Roads & Transportation Agency) has got you covered – at least in the summer they will (be patient).

Imagine finishing up that last bit of work and wanting to slip away incognito, and at the touch of a button having your own mini chopper show up minutes later. Oh and by chopper, I mean drone – as in drone taxi.

The elusive promises we once saw in Back to The Future Part II are nearly here, compadres. With room for a small suitcase and a travel range of up to 50km it’s the perfect way to go from work to holiday mode, while avoiding that awkward guy at work who always wants to carpool in a taxi with you.

Though if you intend on having that special someone tag along (or, you know, temporary someone) think again – it only seats one, so they’ll have to take a taxi to a mutual meet point, like regular people. Sorry.

So you managed to escape your work day early, now what? Off to the airport, obviously.

But where?

Well that depends. Do you fancy somewhere cold? Somewhere warm? Do you even care? The point here is to get away from it all, right?

Either way, you’ve got options…but seeing as it’s never a good idea to subject yourself to radical temperature changes, let’s start with somewhere warm. For this one, I’d definitely recommend taking along that sexy someone you like having around.

Because, y’know, spending time all alone on a private island is just no fun (what? don’t act so surprised).

So here’s how it’s gonna go down – after packing your suitcase with some stylish travel essentials and ringing up your weekend accessory, you’ll charter a flight(s) to, let’s say Mafia Airport in Tanzania (it’s waaay less dodgy than it sounds). Feel free to look around Mafia island upon arrival while you’re at it.

You’ll then have to arrange either a boat or helicopter to take you to the nice, private luxury Thanda Island, where you’ll have booked (for a week or so) prior to arrival – well, the entire island.

Richard Branson ain’t got nothing on you this week.

Complete with 5 En-suite Bedrooms & 2 Traditional Tanzanian Bandas, beautiful little ocean views, and beautiful little people to help you find your way back to your villa if you get lost (I seriously don’t see how this is possible but hey, things happen when you’ve had one too many mimosas).

The great part about this place is it has something for everyone, whatever your lifestyle is. From deep sea fishing to jet skiing, wakeboarding to just chilling at the spa, you can’t get bored here (how could you anyway?).

For the generation that knows no selfie-limits.

For the musicians they’ve got instruments where you can play your little heart out. For the fitness crowd that don’t skip workouts even if on holiday there’s a gym, and for the indulgent but sometimes lazy bastards in all of us there’s a pizza oven and outdoor BBQ for when hunger/hanger strikes.

I’ll take five.

After all the excitement if you’re really feeling fancy you can even wind down in a nice bath by the ocean.

Because standard Western baths suck. Live a little.

Post-bath you could have a nice bonfire, serenade that sexy someone you brought with you, and if you’re still hungry, enjoy a final meal in the ever so colourful and seductive dining area…before heading off to the bedroom for dessert.

Darn, they just keep giving us complimentary bottles of wine, honey….*stealth tips waiter, shoos away quickly*…

But maybe you don’t want to go to somewhere warm, especially if you live in some place like Dubai. Maybe you wanna check out somewhere cooler. Much cooler.

Ever had fantasies of shipping someone you don’t like off to the South Pole? Yeah stop doing that – there’s a luxury getaway there now. You’d be doing them a favour. No literally.

Instead, opt for heading there yourself – or I should more accurately say the Antarctica, yourself. You said you wanted to get away from it all – and White Desert is the perfect place to do it. You might want to bundle down for this, and warm the blood with some strong spirit.

That is a damn small red carpet…wait what is this shit it’s not even red.

So what does it offer? Imagine if the adventure of the outdoors and luxury bumped into each other on the street one day, only to lock eyes and realise it was love at first sight. Well if the two had a baby, it would be White Desert. While not as exclusive as Thanda Island, the camp does have a very small maximum capacity limit for guests – meaning you can still wind down while being aware of the presence of other human beings around.

12 other human beings to be exact – including yourself.

So there’s a hybrid combination going on here – the adventurous spirit of the great outdoors, with the comfort and feel good tingliness of luxury, all bundled into one neat little package.

So tingly.

This one you can kind of go either way with – by flying solo and booking a spot for yourself, and yourself only – or again, bringing along your weekend accessory to help keep you warm at night.

Let’s just push these beds a little closer together. For obvious safety reasons. Which ones? Well I mean…I’m concerned about you…falling…between that little gap *points* right there…in the middle of the night.

There’s plenty of activities to do here for the brave among us, from rope walking, Nunatak climbing (a rock that sticks out of the ice – educate yourself), lake traversing (WOOO), ice climbing, and probably my favourite – ice tunnels (made from temperature changes and freezing oceans). Perfect opportunities to show off your rugged, fearless spirit.

I guess this is how Moses felt.

For the more faint of heart, there are activities which don’t require any great amount of strenuous effort – such as trekking and the like where you can focus more on conversation with that special someone (or, you know, other people) you brought along…just try to stay with the group and not get separated.

Hello??? Grace? Tom? …..Anybody?…..GRACE?!

If you don’t feel like doing anything (you lazy bastard), there’s always the lounge area to wind down in – complete with a library for the little bookworms in all of us…or a space to charge your electronics and catch up on social media (why would you though? Unless it’s to check this dope blog).

They’ve got wine, too.

If you’re hungry after all that adventuring…or for some, lazying around all day…the camp also serves up three course meals (by spirited, magical chefs) daily, so you can keep your caloric intake and expenditure on point…or just stuff your face.
