LUXURY TRAVEL CURATOR, TRAVEL AGENT & BLOGGER
I am a full-service luxury bespoke Travel Agent, Travel Blogger, Concierge, Hospitality Consultant and Wedding Planner. As part of VIRTUOSO, the leading network of global luxury travel consultants, I have direct access to exclusive suppliers, services and VIP Amenities Over 25 years of travel experience precede me, earning the mote of “Little Marco Polo”. Jetsetter-Bonvivant, I curate the world of Luxury Travel & Lifestyle by experience, one destination at the time. Luxury, has so many interpretations. I believe, it is most authentic, when understood beyond the obvious. It all comes down to one individual’s expectations and needs. My luxury, is measured by rarity and sophistication, access to destinations, services, individuals and experiences, which go beyond the mere concept of self-indulgence. – Carlos Melia > Read More
