Hotel Tour – Kings Head Hotel Cirencester

On my recent trip to Cirencester, U.K. for the Kings Head Hotel Ladies International match, I was spoiled with a night’s stay at the Kings Head Hotel and it was nothing short of wonderful. After a full afternoon of polo at the Cirencester Park Polo Club, the Kings Head Hotel invited me for dinner and I invited my UK family Sam and Tom along. We had a very yummy 3-course meal, Sam and I went for salads and the sea...

Polo Valley – Food for the body, mind and soul

I can without a doubt say that Polo Valley in Sotogrande is one of my favorite places on earth. Everything from the enchanting nature, the view, the people, the horses, including the new addition to the family little Soto, the house, everything about the place just makes my heart leap with joy.   I stayed at Polo Valley for a week last summer and loved every minute, the only bad part was having to leave. Now coming back was the...

Marbella Club Equestrian Center

Marbella is one of those places that immediately draws your thoughts towards beaches, fancy restaurants and a general feeling of luxury and well-being, and the Marbella Club is the quintessence of old-glamour for modern day life. My brother now lives in the beautiful town, so hopefully I will have the opportunity of visiting often. On this visit, we discovered an amazing place I had never been to; the Marbella Club Equestrian Center. A short 20 min drive from the Marbella Club Hotel,...

Dubai Pony Friends

One of the best parts about working at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort and Club is the fact that everywhere you look there is a cute pony, I am surrounded by them all the time! Ok, maybe not all the time, because I work in the office, but my office is located above a stable, so I give the ponies a little cuddle or snack on my way in and out. By the way I call all horses ponies, regardless of size....

La Patrona – a Mexican Polo Adventure

This is a guest blogpost by my lovely friend Larissa Esser. Larissa and I met and immediately bonded whilst staying at Polo Valley in Sotogrande this summer. We share the same passion for polo, travel and new adventures! Larissa is also at novice level, although having ridden horses since she was 7 years old, she only started with polo two years ago and tries to find time in her busy work and travel schedule for polo. Even if it means...

Last month of #CrewLife

This past month of September I have flown across the world and back, twice! Coincidentally it was my last month as a flight attendant on a private jet. People are always quite intrigued when I tell them about my job and this is understandable, it’s a very different job, so far away from anything “normal”, there is a very glamorous side to it, especially in private aviation, but there’s also a lot of challenges. It was a bittersweet feeling saying...

Polo Valley – Living a Polo Dream

When Polo Valley invited me to come and experience the Residential Polo Course in order to review it I was ecstatic and over the moon! I had been eyeing their Instagram account and daydreaming of the beautiful place for a while, so when the opportunity arose I was on a plane to Malaga immediately. I arrived at Polo Valley in Sotogrande this past Sunday, and immediately felt at home. Everyone here is so welcoming and friendly and the settings are just gorgeous. Alvaro,...

Horseback Riding on the Beach in Fanø

Last weekend I had the most exhilarating experience. I was on the little island of Fanø visiting my dad. This island is situated off of the west coast of Denmark and it is so pretty and quaint, and very popular with tourists looking to connect with nature and chill out. We had been cycling around exploring and taking in the pretty views and we found out about the Fanø Rundridning (trail ride in Danish) and that they do a beach...

Equestrian Bucket List: Beach Ride

Whilst in the Caribbean on the island of Saint Martin I had an amazing experience horseback riding on the beach at the Seaside Nature Park.

British Airways Club World Cabin Review

A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of experiencing the British Airways “Business Class” or as they call it “Club World” class. When I am #FlyingForAliving it is indeed in one of the most luxurious charter aircrafts in the skies, but when I am #TravelingForPolo I want to spend my money on polo and as little as possible on getting there, so I always buy my tickets in Economy and sometimes I even manage to get a buddy...

Wanderlust – What to pack in your carry-on

Saying that I travel quite a bit is no overstatement! Wanderlust has lead me to work as a stewardess for nearly 3 years now and when I am not flying for a living I am traveling for polo as a passenger and I have picked up on a few tricks along the way.   This past October I spent approximately 55 hours inside airplanes as a passenger (Bahrain, London, Miami, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Bahrain, Dubai, Moscow, Almaty, Dubai, Bahrain were...

Two days in Vancouver- a Seaplane and a Polo Club

One of the great parts of my job is not just that I get to visit many places, but I get to visit cities unexpectedly. I have always loved to travel and explore new cities, but my traveling is always somewhat planned out, or I hear about a place or have a friend living somewhere and choose to go there. But being a flight attendant I sometimes go to places I had never expected to go or planned on my...

Visiting the La Martina Store on Jermyn Street

The La Martina flagship store in London on Jermyn street is a place where Argentinian polo tradition meets classic British tailoring tradition. On my last trip to London I finally had the opportunity to go in for a visit (on my own initiative to see the shop and share this story, La Martina has not sponsored this post). Martin, the store manager, welcomed me to the lovely store and told me the story behind this particular La Martina location. La...

A Stroll Through Paris

Paris is always a good idea, so when our New York trip was cut short I was disappointed, but when I found out we were going to Paris I had another smile on my face.     I have been to Paris a few times before. My first trip there being with my cousin, uncle and aunt when I was 15, a magical experience complete with boat tours, escargot for lunch in the Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower...

Breakfast in New York

Sunday morning I woke up to a nice little surprise in the form of a trip to New York, for those of you who just found my blog I work as a stewardess on a private jet and my schedule is very unpredictable.     I had been on standby since mid June with no flights and as I am based in Bahrain and it was Ramadan I was starting to get slightly restless, so a flight to New York...
