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…

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: Sexy Baja Mansions, Mini-Golf Cocktailing, Monkeying Around in Nicaragua…

They say money can’t buy happiness – but it sure does help with doing whatever you want that you can think up.

Kinda like these things.

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.

Think cocktails, mini golf, and good food all in one place.

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.

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.

Da fuq you looking at bro? Yeah, I’m taking a selfie with your woman…and what?

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: 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.

When you’ve had enough adventuring for the day (or night) you can retire back to your suite to freshen up, grab some food, and hit the on-site bar, before moving onto the lounge to admire the photos you took with your favourite camera of all those wonderful creatures.

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).

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.

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.

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.

For The Weekenders: Nepal by Motorbike, Wine Tasting in Argentina, Meditation in Portugal…

It’s getting to be that time of the year where…well, a fucking holiday is long overdue. I know – New Year’s was no more than a month ago *shrugs* what can I say? With plans for Europe already in place, just thought I’d share with you all some other great places to check out. Enjoy, and remember, life’s too short to sit around going nowhere.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Which brings me to the first order of business – Nepal. By motorbike.

Why?

Because it’s something you probably haven’t done yet – but would be more than willing to try.

Think about it – cruising down the road, no speed limit, wind in your hair and sunglasses deflecting bugs (okay, maybe helmet), open land, culture, and nature as far as the eye can see. Just you, the road, and a few buddies. Nothing’s more freeing than the sound of that motor hum.

The bike? Royal Enfield Bullet. 500cc’s of unadulterated power – not too much, not too little…but just right for a trip like this.

royal enfield bullet motorcycle, For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Get ready for 11 days chock full of checking out Nepal’s awesome scenery including its many jungles, plains, and insane heights – and of course what would a holiday be without (naturally) getting to know the locals and some of their favorite things to do…not to mention, you know, like…stay with them. What? You thought it was gonna be all isolated hotels on this trip? Guess again.

The rundown:

Grab a friend (or three), and book your tickets, plus the reservation for the trip. Touch down in Kathmandu with nothing but a carry on and your most rugged pair of boots (you’ll need them). Hopefully you’ve researched into the culture a bit and brushed up on the language – a little cultural respect can go a long way. Rest up well and get ready for the next day – take this time to get familiar with the area and practice a few lines on the locals – there’ll be a welcome dinner later and knowing a joke or two may help break the ice. Be sure to try every food passed your way – let’s not be picky, remember, you’re here to explore.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

From there it’s time to hit the road – there’s a lot on your travel plate:

No speed limits. Traffic-less streets in Bhaktapur.

Pigeon dinner and fresh mangoes (that you pick) for dessert while escaping the sun under a tree in Fattepur…speaking of, if you’ve been up trees picking mangoes, you probably stink – hit up the jungle for a fresh spring water shower.

Dessert before dinner – stuff your face with Momo dumplings in Bhetadar (they’re not your freezer variety) then eat dinner under the stars.

Learning how to make tea in Ilam…

…and 8 hour endurance rides.

You get the idea.

Like I said. Lot on your plate. Get ready. Rest well. Eat plenty. Nepal – it’s calling you – answer it.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Hopefully, all that motorbike action got you tuckered out…at this point, I personally would just wanna kick back and lounge all day. Argentina‘s the place to do it – but what trip to any Latin country would be complete without wine? Seriously…that’s like an elephant without a trunk.

So if you’re ready to come down off that adrenaline high, then it’s time to head to Mendoza. For villas, vineyards, and vino…so you can veni, vidi, vici.

First order of business: your accommodation. 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom villa? If you still wanna catch up on some work with your remote business early in the morning…or just enjoy sleeping alone…or just like a lot of space – I recommend 2 bedroom.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, The East Nepal Experience, The Himalayan, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Think of this as your own home away from home. Treat it like your own home away from home. With waterfront and 1500 acre vineyard views, soaking tubs, rooftop terraces, and more than 2500 sq. ft. of living space, a place like this commands respect.

Besides waking up like royalty, the guys over at The Vines Resort and Spa are pretty intuitive when it comes to dining, too. They specialize in serving seasonal only dishes to all their guests – meaning the freshest taste you can find…and who can forget Argentinian beef? There’s just some things no matter how much your exercise that are like kryptonite to Superman…a good steak is one of mine.

If you’re not much of a red meat enthusiast that’s okay – they also serve other delicious alternatives like grilled salmon, pork (for you pork lovers) and even grilled fruit…a personal favorite of mine.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, The East Nepal Experience, The Himalayan, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Hang on – don’t get the wrong idea here, this place isn’t all about relaxation – they’ve got some pretty fun activities that require you to get up and go, too. So in case you want to use more than the muscles in your arm to reach for that 3rd glass of wine, they’ve got you covered with excursions, fishing, climbing walls, bocce ball courts, and, of course, plenty of wine making activities. You know…to work those delts and lats.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, The East Nepal Experience, The Himalayan, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Just remember – if you ever get sore from all that “heavy lifting,” you can always hit up their spa.

…but hold up – what if you don’t want all that? What if you don’t wanna socialize, don’t want noise, don’t want tours or “roughing it” – what if you don’t want any of that but instead just wanna get away from it all? Well then I’d say it’s time to take you back to (one) of my homelands…

Get ready for quality espresso, port wine, and bacalhau…’cause it’s next stop, Portugal.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

I remember my childhood days in Bermuda and teenage days of visiting family in Porto and Lisbon…we used to go out to the beach house and sunbathe, relax, lose track of time and just enjoy the stillness of everything. In retrospect, it was probably the best form of meditation I’d ever encountered and between traveling to both countries probably explains my refusal to live more than 10 minutes from the closest beach.

There’s a certain calmness the ocean offers to those looking for solace or time to reflect, empty, and get lost in their own thoughts. Just thinking about it makes me want to head to the beach now…but I’ve gotta finish this post. In the meantime, I want you to check out Cabanas No Rio, a (literally) small little getaway in Comporta, Portugal.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

There are two huts. Little huts. Fisherman huts…but don’t be fooled by these little huts. In each of these huts, are you living quarters. The first one? Your bedroom and bathroom, complete with shower. The second one? Your kitchen and living room. Quaint living room. Cute kitchen – decent for simple meals but small enough to not get too crazy.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Loads of relaxing activities for when you feel the urge to venture out of your little hut. Take your pick from bird watching, dolphin watching, landscape observation and more. Me? I’d take dolphin watching. Good opportunity for photography and putting that macro lens to use.

If you get hungry, there’s no need to hunt down your own food – your accommodation is far away but not too far away from humanity – so hit up a restaurant if you don’t feel like cooking what you got from the grocer a few days back. So go out, grab some grub, have a few drinks, click some photos, head back, sit back, relax.

For the Weekenders,Rego's Life Blog,Travel Rego's Life, For The Weekenders Nepal by Motorbike Wine Tasting in Argentina Meditation in Portugal, Cabanas No Rio, vacation ideas, holiday ideas

Life really doesn’t have to be as hard as society makes it out to be. It starts with a thought…

As always…

Stay awesome.
