Test Driving the All Grown-Up 2014 MINI Cooper/S Through the Narrow Streets of Puerto Rico

Feb 5, 2014  |   Contributor: Mila Pantovich

My very first memories of the MINI are of sitting on the floor in front of my dad, watching Michael Cane tear through the streets in The Italian Job and laughing as Mr. Bean drives with his feet as he scrambles to get ready for a dentist appointment. I wanted one of those cars, because my dad loved them — it was that simple. Now, after having been invited by MINI to test drive their new 2014 Cooper Hardtops through the windy roads of Puerto Rico, I want one for a whole new slew of reasons.

RAYA Restaurant, Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel

Mar 14, 2011  |   Contributor: Courtney Driver  |  1 Comment

Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel is one of my favorite resorts in California. My favoritism is, in part, due to the fact that I have been coming here for as long as I remember. Over the recent years, many changes have come to this Laguna property. Despite my classic response of resisting change in something I love, every modification that this resort has made, I have embraced... Read More

Business Class Travel Aboard Air New Zealand

Nov 17, 2010  |   Contributor: Courtney Driver

Luxury Airlines: When it comes to long-haul flying there is a lot to be said for choosing upper class seating: more space to move around, better food, comfort. All of these things are great, but what they truly amount to is this: your trip starts the second you board the plane. Hand the flight attendant your jacket, graciously accept a glass of champagne and settle in.... Read More

"Rancho" La Puerto That is, Health Resort, Mexico

Sep 28, 2010  |   Contributor: Cynthia Dial

Resort Review: Like Cher and Madonna, a one-word name suffices. Say "Rancho" in the spa world and the assumption is Rancho La Puerta. A first-class fitness and health spa mere miles from the U.S.'s southern border, it's in the town of Tecate at the base of 3,885-foot Mt. Kuchumaa - revered and named by Native Americans as "the exalted high place."... Read More

Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain: The Ultimate Tucson Vacation

Sep 14, 2010  |   Contributor: Courtney Driver

Hotel Review: As we made our way towards Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain, it became apparent that this is the kind of resort you visit to get away from it all. There are few places more classically Southwestern than the Tucson area of Arizona: a vast desert landscape, a harshly beautiful backdrop of reds and orange, with cacti lending shades of green to the scenery. Saguaro cacti, the classic plant you envision with multiple arms, populate this region in large numbers; they only live naturally here in the Sonoran desert.... Read More

Restaurant Review: Rhodes W1 Restaurant Cumberland Hotel

Feb 12, 2010  |   Contributor: Carol Driver

Fine Dining: On the face of it, the menu is beautifully simple. The panna cotta, parmesan and cauliflower emulsion amuse bouche translates to cauliflower cheese; the soft duck egg, chestnut mushrooms, watercress veloute with Roquefort and truffle soldiers is clearly dippy egg and cheesy toast and obviously confit lamb belly, beetroot, roast onion and ticklemore is lamb with a tasty sauce....
