    Although there is much to do within the hotel’s walls, Sydney offers endless opportunities to experience the famous city. Venture to the markets in the center of the Pacific Rim to explore the world’s third largest fish market. Then, discover numerous places to enjoy food, fashion and fun at The Rocks Markets.

    If you’re more of an adventure seeker, sign up to scale new heights on the BridgeClimb where you will climb to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Just a short walk from the hotel, you can time your climb to take place during the day or at night, twilight or dawn. You could also hang ten at Australia’s famous Bondi Beach. For the more relaxed traveler, experience a night at the famed Sydney Opera House. Not an opera fan? Not a problem! The Sydney Opera House is also home to the Australian Ballet and Sydney’s Dance and Theatre companies. Can’t find a show that peaks your interest?

    Sydney’s Foodie Scene

    Since Sydney is located on the harbour, waterfront dining is a beloved activity around Sydney. If you love seafood, take a quick flight to Palm Beach and grab a bite at Doyles on Watsons Bay. This spot is one of Australia’s oldest seafood restaurants. Alternatively, you could stay local and enjoy a quick bite and a drink at the Four Seasons Hotel, Sydney’s bar GRAIN. GRAIN celebrates the fine craft of drinking with a neighborhood bar atmosphere.

  • Sydney’s Gem – The Strand Arcade

    One of my favorite places to return to when I am back in Sydney is The Strand Arcade. I recommend this beautiful old, Victorian-style building reminiscent of similar arcades in London to any overseas visitors as well. The Strand was built in 1891 and joins two busy Sydney streets, George and Pitt in the central shopping district. The arcade is an easy walk from the harbour where many of the leading Sydney hotels are located.

    Shopping at The Strand

    There are a number of unique Australian shops here, which makes it fun to visit if you are looking for a local gift. Dinosaur Designs has brilliantly colored resin homewares and jewelry. Also within The Strand is Aesop Skin care line where all of the items are made from naturally sourced ingredients. A must-visit is Haighs, Australia’s oldest family-owned chocolate maker for delicious samples or a gift. On the higher floors, you’ll find top local Australian fashion and jewelry designers, which make The Strand a great place to browse as well as shop.

    If you get hungry…

    While shopping, stop for some lunch at La Rosa wine bar on Level Two; their pizza is amazing! Enjoy a coffee in one of the coffee shops on the lower level for a flat white or just to people watch. Visiting The Strand is a special experience. It’s so different from the modern shopping malls which we are all familiar with, yet you’ll find a variety of stores here. The Strand has everything from bespoke services offering made-to-measure shirts, custom gowns, and antiques or contemporary jewelry to more practical offerings such as a shoe repair establishment and The Nut Shop. The Nut Shop has been a Sydney icon since 1940!

  • Kenya Changes You

    “Africa changes you…”

    You’ll hear it over and over. After my recent trip to Kenya, I’ll be the first to add the phrase to my discussions when I’m talking about any future bucket list. Put Africa on your list, pack up and go! I’m in the travel business and I even had my doubts. There’s vaccinations, the distance, my family asking if it was safe, etc. However, you step off the plane to elephants staring at you. Then the village folk in the most beautiful flowing outfits greet you. Finally, you experience your first sunset with a Baobab tree in the distance and all the worry washes away. The effort will seem insignificant compared to what awaits.

    Stepping Off the Plane

    My plane landed along a dirt runway in the middle of Kenya bordering the Samburu region and national park. My first safari experience was spent at Sasaab Lodge. This accommodation was amazing. There was nothing but open air, a small plunge pool to cool off after a day of exploring, and an ice chest with plenty of beverages. These beautiful villas had no electricity so it was just you and nature – with a view of the river where elephants would drop by at sunset for their evening drink just as you were pouring yours. It was a toast to Kenya.

    Discovering Kenya

    When you think Africa, you imagine sweeping vistas with a lion perched on a rock overlooking his lands or maybe you picture elephants and giraffes in the distance. We had all of these experiences and it gave me chills as I turned each corner in the safari vehicle. Although the wildlife is stunning, what really affects you are the unexpected, special moments that happen while traveling through this beautiful country. It feels as though you’ve been given a gift, an experience to cherish. You develop a newfound appreciation for the simplicity that life can have and the wonder of nature.

    One of my favorite moments was visiting a local village near the lodge. A close friend suggested I take one of the retro-Polaroid cameras. The ones where you press the shutter and a little whirring sound happens before spitting out a photo beginning to develop. After giving it a few shakes, you have your picture! Imagine humbly sharing the technology with locals in a third world village. It was amazing.

    I wanted to share this with the beautiful, happy people of this small village. After gathering them around for a group picture, I handed them the actual photo so they could keep it. Tears welled up in their eyes as they saw themselves in full color for the first time. Another photo was taken of a mother holding her small child and the reaction was so beautiful. This is where I knew the saying was true, “Africa changes you.”

    Visit to a Local School

    We visited a local school next. It was a bit out of the way because they don’t like too many travelers passing through, but we didn’t mind the journey. We visited a local third grade class and their principal had them ask us questions. It’s not every day strangers come to visit.

    Third Grade Class | Photo Credit: Cory Payton

    Their questions ranged from our favorite soccer players and different foods to what children like to do in our country. Then, one little girl raised her hand and quietly asked, “Can we sing for you?” Sure enough, the entire class started belting out the African version of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” in unison! It was a humbling experience and one I still fondly carry with me.

    Final Words

    This was just a taste of my time in Africa. We then ventured to the Maasai Mara region where you’ll find indigenous tribes and plenty of animals. But that story is for another time. The people and places are magical. The wildlife is magnificent and everywhere! From the majestic elephants pushing through huge bushes to the cats that are either laying around or on the prowl for their next dinner.  So, I must repeat, “Africa truly does change you.”

    I grew up on a farm in the Central Valley of California which is fondly known as the raisin capital of the world, yes my dad harvested for Sun Maid. Finishing college I spent leisure time working at a ski resort and soon leading tours with Contiki Holidays where the travel bug really hit. Moving into sales of my favorite countries like Australia, New Zealand and Africa, Swain Destinations was a perfect fit and I’ve enjoyed being a part of this family owned company for 12 years. As I always say, ‘the journey is the reward’.

  • BridgeClimb Sydney

    It’s been said that Sydney Harbour is the most beautiful natural harbour in the world, and it’s hard to disagree. From scenic walks to ferry trips, there are many ways to enjoy it, but you won’t get a better view than from the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    This engineering masterpiece spans the sparkling harbour and dominates the city skyline. With uninterrupted 360 degree views, there is no better way to see Sydney from a new perspective than climbing to the summit of the bridge.

    So, which climb should you do? What’s the best time of day to do it? We asked BridgeClimb to answer some of these questions so that planning your climb is fun.

    What’s the best time of day to enjoy Sydney Harbour?

    Whether you choose dawn, day, twilight or night, you will experience 360 degrees of unforgettable scenery on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

    At dawn, you depart under a blanket of darkness. These climbs begin before the city has even started to stir. As you reach the summit, you’ll be in a position to take in the dawning of the new day. The day climb provides the classic view that has won hearts all around the world! From the daily hum and buzz of Sydneysiders going about their day to cruise ships passing below, or local birdlife stopping by to beat you to the summit – there’s plenty to experience when you climb during the day. Twilight climbs need no introduction – experiencing the day transition to night is a really special time to be 134 meters high above the harbour. Sydney really sparkles at night as the city illuminates after dark. Your climb leader will guide you along the great steel arches as you witness the city of Sydney wind down for the day.

    What’s the best climb type to see the best views of Sydney?

    BridgeClimb

    Absorb panoramic views of Sydney as you journey to the summit on the original climb experience. Like an exposed spine, the outer rim delivers you to the peak, as the sky remains just beyond your outstretched fingertips.

    BridgeClimb Express

    Accelerate your ascent to the summit. This energetic experience is the fastest trip to the top of the bridge. Ascend through the heart of the bridge, a cathedral of steel, and burst through to the summit from below.

    Sampler

    Get a taste of the world famous BridgeClimb! In just one and a half hours, ascend the inner arch of the iconic bridge to a spectacular vantage point halfway to the top. Ideal for you if you have height concerns and don’t want to go all the way up!

    The climb of my life is over, where should I go to celebrate?

    Are you still on a high after your climb? BridgeClimb is located in one of Sydney’s historic suburbs, “The Rocks.” As the strip of land where European settlers chose to step ashore in 1788, The Rocks is essentially the birthplace of modern Sydney. It is full of cobbled laneways, cozy cafes and some of the oldest pubs in the country! Perfect for a little treat after your climb.

  • New Zealand’s Sub-Tropical Paradise

    For most travelers who dream of one day exploring New Zealand’s landscapes, their thoughts likely drift toward the mountain peaks, glacial rivers, blue alpine lakes, and the black sand beaches boarded by frigid seas. Many parts of both the North and South Island country do contain these wonders; however, there’s a mellower side to the land that is less visited but no less beautiful known as the Bay of Islands.

    Helena Bay

    The Bay of Islands is known to the Kiwis as the “winterless North.” This sub-tropical region found at the very top of the North Island rarely sees temperatures dip below 60 degrees, even in winter. In the summertime, highs hover between 72-80 degrees. Few places take advantage of this temperate region’s wonderful geography as well as the luxury lodge Helena Bay. I was lucky enough to visit Helena Bay in May of 2017 with a group of fellow travel professionals. To say I was wowed is a true understatement.

    Situated 40 kilometers north of the town of Whangarei, Helena Bay is located next to the sea. It is only a 45-minute helicopter flight from the capital city of Auckland.  The lodge’s five waterfront suites are the perfect location for soaking in the scenery. Also, there is access to an array of aquatic adventures including stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, and small craft boating.  During my stay, I chose the time I wanted to go paddle boarding and was then met by an employee on the beach. My board was on the sand and a paddle was pre-set to my size.  The opportunity to paddle the waters and take in the surrounding green hills from the solitude of the sea felt like New Zealand truly personified.

    So Much To Do

    The opportunities for fun on land were no less abundant and our group made good work of the lodge’s many options for exploring the property’s 800 acres.  Before Helena Bay was turned into the picture of luxury for travelers, it was a sheep farm.  Today, cattle are raised on the property and the lodge keeps miniature donkeys, alpacas, and chickens as pets for the guests to enjoy.  A quick ride on the electric all-terrain vehicles delivered us among the farm life.  Later in my stay, I opted to go off-the-beaten path via a mountain bike. I had a blast climbing hills and visiting secret beaches all to myself.  Although they offer many outdoor activities, if the weather is poor, the fully equipped indoor gym, heated lap pool, sauna, and steam room should keep the active crowd satisfied.

    Amazing Cuisine

    Finally, I have to mention the food.  Michelin-starred Ristorante Don Alfonso of Southern Italy operates in Helena Bay. The philosophy is respecting the local food culture while incorporating the age-old traditions of the Sorrento Peninsula and Amalfi Coast.  A good deal of the produce we found on our plates for each meal is grown on-site. We had farm fresh eggs at breakfast each morning.  The staff and overall experience our group found at Helena Bay was second to none.

    As New Zealand’s newest luxury lodge, Helena Bay is still under the radar. However, with the unrivaled Kiwi experience offered, it won’t be long before the waiting list fills up quickly.

    I’m am East Coast native (Philadelphia) who relocated to sunny Southern California. Growing up I was lucky enough to visit all over the United States with my family going on snowboarding trips along with excursions to some America’s best beaches. After a trip to Costa Rica I was hooked on international travel and have since visited ten additional countries including New Zealand and the Cook Islands and I can’t wait to add many more. I’ve worked in the travel industry for six years now, starting with Home Exchange before moving to become the Marketing and Sales Manager for the Cook Islands Tourism Board’s North American Office. I’m thrilled to be a part of the Swain Destinations Team as the Relationships Manager for American Express Travel.

  • Experience Southern Africa

    Here at Swain Destinations we have expert consultants who not only sell our destinations, but have visited and, in some cases, hail from those exact regions. One of these expert consultants is Smruti Smith. Smruti was born in Livingstone, Zambia and has been in the travel industry for over 18 years. She is one of Swain Destinations’ Africa specialists who is passionate about travel, meeting new people and learning about different countries and cultures. We’ve asked Smruti a few questions below to not only give knowledge on Africa itself, but also an insight into Smruti’s experience.

    What has been your favorite destination to visit?

    “Southern Africa captured my fascination and I must say that it is my favorite destination to visit. To narrow it down, because Southern African has many countries, I enjoyed South Africa, Botswana and Zambia the most.

    South Africa is truly a magical and diverse destination that is perfect for the visitor looking to explore wildlife safaris and get to know the local culture. Just north of South Africa is Botswana, an area that is one of the richest wildlife regions in all of Africa. Finally, Zambia is the land of the legendary African walking safari, the wild Zambezi River, breathtaking lakes and wetlands, a profusion of birds, abundant wildlife, and raw, pulsating wilderness, all in one friendly country.

    Southern Africa is my favorite destination because the people are just incredible. They are full of smiles and great hospitality. You feel welcomed from the minute you land. The culture, food, wine, sightseeing, and the amazing wildlife are what make these destinations unique.”

    Where did you stay?

    “I have stayed at many hotels in Cape Town, South Africa – Cape Grace, Twelve Apostles, One&Only and Table Bay. I highly recommend staying in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront area as a first timer in Cape Town, as you easily have access to shops and restaurants. In Botswana, I stayed at all the Wilderness Premier camps. Then in Zambia, I stayed at the Toka Leya and the Royal Livingstone. All of my accommodations exceeded my expectations!”

    How was the food?

    “The food in Southern Africa is very fresh and nothing is processed. I love their seafood dishes! Any visitor must try Cape Malay food in Cape Town, along with typical South African Braai (which is known as BBQ in the United States). If you are a wine and spirit lover, I highly recommend Pinotage and Inverroche Gin. The cuisine found in Southern Africa did not disappoint!”

    Favorite Experience?

    “Being on safari has been the best experience by far. Staying in camps where you have no access to wi-fi is definitely an adjustment! I never thought I could survive without the internet or being in constant contact with my friends and family, but I highly recommend anyone who visits to disconnect. You want to embrace it all, and really become one with nature. It’s a truly reviving feeling. Although it’s hard, one can really appreciate the wildlife, people in the lodges, and your life slowing down for a moment in time.”

    Finally, what advice would you give?

    “If you are traveling to Africa for the first time, I recommend visiting Southern Africa. Making this your first stop gives you a little taste of everything Africa has to offer. To get the best experience, I would do 10 to 12 days, making stops to Cape Town, Safari and Victoria Falls. It’s hard to choose just a few places to visit, but these destinations are a must!”

    I was born in Livingstone, Zambia and have lived in the USA for over 30 years. I have been in the airline/travel industry for 18 years. I previously worked in the Airline industry, and for another Africa specialist company. I have always been passionate about travel, meeting new people and learning about different countries and cultures. When I am not working, I enjoy travelling with my husband, spending time with family/friends, and working out.
