I run when I travel. Always ask the valet or concierge where it’s safe to go, and bring a map – you will get lost. I try to do it every day, preferably at dawn. You see so much more than you do from the inside of a car, and you get to see a sunrise.
I was looking to celebrate my older daughter’s graduation from law school, and Dana sent us to Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on Vancouver Island. I heard ‘tented camp’ and thought, ‘Hmm,’ but we’re talking luxury bedding, Michelin-level food, and the clearest skies you’ve ever seen.
If you’ve never been to Zion National Park, go. I’ve hiked every trail in that park, and The Narrows is the best. Pick a beautiful sunny day – you’re in water the whole time with steep, towering red walls above. It’s heaven on earth.
With my husband, it’s slower paced. My ideal is scaling a mountain. His ideal day is golf and winetasting. He’s not going to be looking for that kayak.
Beaches? No thanks. I sunburn too easily.
