JG Stories: Inspirational Summer Travel

With summer right around the corner, (technically), it means time for some travel to places near and far! We’ve shared some of our Top destinations, and a few bucket lists, but now we’re sharing our own summer travel inspiration. We asked around the JG Black Book office to see where everyone would be traveling to this summer, or maybe where they hope to be traveling, and we’ve got an awesome list going. Hopefully we’ll see you on our travels!

“We are thinking about traveling to Costa Rica and Belize this summer. They’ve both got a nice mix of different environments and activities to keep all members of the family – grown-ups and kids – occupied and happy.” ~ Cathy C.



Vail, Colorado – Sonnenalp
“I have been to Vail to ski during the winter season, but I always hear that it’s equally as great to go in the summer. I’d love to stay at Sonnenalp to get an authentic Bavarian experiences. Bring on the lederhosen! I’m also super excited to go to Aspen for this year’s Food & Wine festival in June.” ~ Alexandra S.



Milan, Italy – Palazzo Parigi Milan Hotel & Grand Spa
“Milan is a city that I love. I been there many times on business and it simply feels like an upscale version of home (Argentina). It’s the perfect place for someone that likes fashion (and to shop!!), food, wine and culture. (I am describing myself).  In particular, I’d love to stay at Palazzo Parigi because it offers beautiful views and natural light in every room. It’s really where I would like to be in a few weeks.. (or tomorrow!).” ~ Tania P.



Portugal – Portugal Deluxe
” For some reason, Portugal has been high on my list for a while.  I know it is not as popular as its neighbor, Spain, but from everything I have read, it is a highly underrated destination.  The architecture is supposed to be beautiful, it has miles of coastline and who doesn’t like Portuguese food and wine?!  It is a small country but it has so much to offer and I am ready to explore every inch of it!  (And the strong dollar is a very good incentive!)” ~ Maureen K.


Patagonia – Quasar Expeditions
“This summer I would love to travel to Patagonia. I always visit cities when I travel, and a trip to Patagonia will definitely break my vacation mold. I’m craving an adventure and a trip to a location where I can be constantly awed by nature. I would love to hike, encounter wildlife and digitally disconnect – I have a feeling Patagonia will not disappoint when it comes to meeting those needs.” – Megan S.



India – Peirce & Leslie
“It has been my dream for a long time now to visit India. And now it the time to do it. I plan to combine it with Bhutan and Nepal in a 15-20 day adventure. I’m sure that can happen with the help of Peirce & Leslie. I love the culture, the colors, religion, the devoted people, the flavorful spices in the food. I can’t wait. Alo for the Christmas and New Years holiday, I also might travel to Moscow to spend some time with family.” ~ Karin K.
