Looking for photos on the below post got me interested in Jorie Butler Kent (hence the car) and her impressive work and life. Kent is part owner of Abercrombie and Kent, the modern luxury safari company, and spends several months every year traveling to outlying areas of the world, seeking out new locations for the company's destinations and tours (talk about a dream job!). Through this work she has created the Abercrombie and Kent Philanthropy which supports wildlife and community conservation, and as an avid photographer, established her own commercial slide bank, International Geographic Images (IGI), located within the offices of DHI, an award-winning commercial graphic design firm Jorie founded in 1983. I deeply admire her passion for travel and work she has accomplished through this. Browsing the A&K website, I started to get the travel itch and found the below incredible destinations I wish to one day experience:
Twelve awesomely decorated, permanent tents consist of Camp Kusini located in the Serengeti. How amazing to spend the day viewing the most amazing wildlife on a walking excursion or game drive (I think I would prefer the drive), and finish up with cocktails at camp to watch the sun go down. Tres Out of Africa....
ASIA- SIX SENSE HIDEAWAY YAO NOI, THAILAND
The ultimate in relaxation, the Six Sense Hideway on the island of Koh Yao Noi, Thailand seems to suggest that Swiss Family Robinson adventure that was always so cool. Essentially outdoors, each private villa basically allows you to sleep and bathe in a tree house, all with amazing views of the ocean.
EUROPE- HOTEL CRILLON LE BRAVE, PROVENCE
With its lavander fields and olive groves, Provence is the region that inspired many artists including Cezanne, Van Gogh, Chagall and Giono. This boutique hotel is set in Avingon and provides you with the utmost tranquility and relaxation. And when you've had enough of the wine and cheese tastings, the location is close enough to the cote d'azur that you can jet down to the beach!
