THE MINDSET & LIFESTYLE OF A GLOBETROTTING STILETTO
You’re a stylish jet-setter who’s committed to travel. You go because you have to. You need to see, feel, taste, touch, immerse yourself in culture, scour the globe for inspiration, treasures that exist outside the confines of your everyday life. You’re not afraid to splurge, but prefer to save. When you do splurge it’s on experiences, seldom ‘things,’ experiences matter more. You get down and dirty and enjoy adventure but you also like the cosmopolitan lifestyle—martinis, boating and the finest dining. You have a wish-list of all the places you want to see, things you want to do. You value time and live in the moment because you know tomorrow is not promised… You my friend, are a Globetrotting Stiletto.
We decided to take a slightly different approach with Globetrotter’s Mood this time around. Today, we’re going Glamping! And because we think it’s unfair to choose the destination for you, we’ve rounded up our top 5 Glamping sites around the world and are forcing you to have your pick. Back in January, Solo and company glamped out in Cali for New Years and put stylish travelers onto the chic trend. Now, while Solange Knowles is an innovator, she didn’t invent Glamping, the sexy alternative to camping, but she damn sure revived it, reminding globetrotters that we can be fabulous while kicking it outdoors. Even if you aren’t a nature lover, there are ways to glamp without temporarily living in the woods. Here’s how you do it…

OUR TOP 5 GLAMPING SITES
SONEVA FUSHI: MALDIVES
First time glamping? Why not do it your boo? Cozy up in a comfortable tent, beach-side, with bae and just kick it. When you’re not hiding out, go scuba diving or treat yourself to a relaxing massage then end your day watching the sunset over a candle lit dinner on the beautiful sandbanks of the Maldives.
AREIAS DO SEIXO: PORTUGAL
If you aren’t a tent kind of gal but still want a touch a nature in your glamping experience, Areias do Seixo is the place for you. This magical setting is known for its pine tree interior design. Whether you reserve a Gold room, Tree room, Land room or Love room, you will experience tranquility and pure comfort. Trust us.
SEQUOIA HIGH SIERRA CAMP: CALIFORNIA, USA
Head out west for more secluded glamping options. Sequoia High Sierra Camp is literally located in the middle of the woods with impeccable views of the National Park. You may want to leave your heels home for this one.
FOUR SEASONS TENTED CAMP: CHIANG RAI, THAILAND
Now this is what we call real luxury glamping. This locale is called the Golden Triangle, the area where Thailand, Mayanmar, and Laos converge. Activities include elephant rides, floating down the Mekong and visiting the Hall of Opium across the Burmese border. You in?
TANDARA: MACQUARIE PARK, NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA
Not only is there a king-size bed, bathtub and double walk-in shower, but there’s also a flat screen TV, DVD player, a complete outdoor kitchen boasting an enormous barbecue, mind you, all this goodness is tucked away under a massive tent. Tandara is ideal is you love camping but loathe bugs.
