Now that I’ve dated myself with the “Champagne Wishes & Caviar Dreams” title, I must thank Mr. Leach for introducing me to Monte Carlo and the finer things in life. My quest to maintain and nurture that introduction has come full circle with my travels and career in the wine industry.
As the Director of Marketing and Special Events at MacArthur Beverages, my relationship and approach to wine is that of a living work of art. This qualitative and character base assessment of wine dances quite well with my philosophy of life and tastes – – give your best and accept only the best. This is where my encounter with Silversea, my little silver box began four years ago.
Friday, May 13th finally arrived and I was all set to embark on another Silversea cruise in the Mediterranean with food, wine and opulence as the priority. Before the appointed day of embarkation, I relied on my past travel experiences to lead the way by arriving several days ahead of the actual departure date, something you must consider to avoid any mishaps with luggage, flights and missing the ship. I did and the choice of lodging was the incredible La Réserve de Beaulieu.
The following series of postings will began with day 1 in Beaulieu-sur-Mer and end with day 11 at the port of Civitavecchia.
Please sit back, relax and allow this unhurried voyage to unfold through my unhurried posts.
