Michelle M. Winner is inveterate traveler whose goal is to land on all of the continents- in style. Enjoying her job as ' professional sybarite' she dutifully reports on the best hotels, wines, spas and chefs in her travels. She is past President of the prestigious worldwide IFWTWA and flys between her homes on the beach in Hawaii and the mountains of Oregon
Michelle also writes about luxury equestrian travel for the love of her horse Drifter. Her articles and photography have appeared in luxury lifestyle magazines, worldwide newspapers and notably the upscale food magazine Saveur. She writes the popular Culinarytraveler.com with her photog husband Kurt Winner.
( FYI- her other careers included commercial interior designer, private client professional shopper and first class only trans-Atlantic stewardess!)
With such diverse experience who wouldn't enjoy her slightly irreverent but always on the money essential travel advice?
I recently stayed at Fairmont Pacific Rim. The spa is indeed a tranquil place to escape the bustle outside. Check out the spa cuisine especially the bento! The rooms are techie treats, mine with a control panel for curtains and all lights nest to the bed.
