Welcome to the Roam Travel Company blog, The Weekender Bag! Essential travel tips packed into one place.
The goal of our blog is to provide travel inspiration to our readers. We are very fortunate to be exposed to some of the coolest hotels, destinations, activities and tours around the world. And we want to share them with you! Here is what you can expect from the The Weekender Bag.
Intelligently Designed Hotels
We love intelligently designed hotels and hotels with a strong sense of place. You can expect to find many boutique and privately owned hotels featured on our blog. There are hundreds and hundreds of dreamy hotels in the world. But we find these properties tend to have unique design elements and service that walks the line of formal and friendly. Of course, there are outstanding exceptions, but we typically shy away from the design of corporate hotels. So, be prepared to meet some of our favorites.
Having access to the right network of owners and specialty guides allows us to create moments that the internet cannot provide. For example, imagine moseying around Tel Aviv with a personal stylist who specializes in the city’s second hand shops. Or reliving your wedding ceremony in the African bush with a photographer and authentic Zimbabwean dance group. Think photos of you cutting cake with hippos grazing behind you. Or picture one of Ireland’s top genealogist tracing your ancestry prior your arrival and continuing to follow the footsteps of your family’s history. We want to paint the pictures of the moments we have created. Maybe these once in a lifetime experiences will inspire you to start planning your next trip.
Also in the mix, we will include general insight of the travel industry. Starting with why you should have a leisure travel agent on your contact list, along with your accountant and your hair dresser.
Lastly, there are some things that we just cannot travel without. From time to time, we will feature products that may make your travel experience even more enjoyable. Whether it be the perfect leather duffel or the best lip balm for your flying, these “must-packs” may be the first step towards your next getaway.
The focus of our blog is on luxe travel for intelligent travelers. We specialize in private travel, crafted to meet your interests and style preferences. We won’t be finding “the best travel deals for any budget” but we will try to provide inspiration for those who believe in traveling well. For those who want the most authentic version of their dream trip, but cannot afford the time for arranging the details…We are here for you.
We hope The Weekender Bag whisks you off places and properties you have only dreamed of. Get your bucket lists out and your pens ready.
