Inspiring Kensington Moments

With a world full of opportunities sometimes it can be difficult to choose your next adventure.  Perhaps you’ll find inspiration in some of these memorable moments from our Destination Experts.  They traveled around the globe in 2009 in search of new travel ideas and experiences for Kensington’s collection of private guided tours.

Climbing Hong Kong’s Bronze Buddha (which overlooks a quiet monastery) in the spring rain was a strangely spiritual experience.  – Julie, Eastern Europe Destination Expert Enjoying mouth-watering tapas and a glass of 2004 Noble from Viñedos y Bodegas Garcia Figuero while lounging on a terrace overlooking the Royal Palace in Madrid. –  Helen, Western Europe Destination Expert Taking a private guided tour of The Winter Palace followed by a vodka and caviar tasting in St. Petersburg, Russia. – Matt, Western Europe Destination Expert. I loved the vineyard tour I took of the Zuccardi Bodega in Mendoza, Argentina last spring.  The wine was just as incredible as the view of the Andes Mountains! -  Andrea, South America Destination Expert. Sitting on the beach of Lake Ometepe in Nicaragua eating grilled tilapia and watching the sun go down over the mountains. –Tim, Western Europe Destination Expert


Drinking a scotch on the rocks - on a glacier, during a fall cruise in Patagonia.  – Johanna, South America Regional Manager Spotting glow-in-the-dark plankton in waves breaking on a beach in Kerbi, Thailand one magic night. – Karishma, Africa & Middle East Destination Expert If you’ve had a great Kensington adventure experience you’d like to share email it to and you might see it in our next Inspiring Kensington Moments!
