Fantasy Fest Key West (some pictures, including an appearance by Ron Jeremy... warning: naked women kissing)




 Fantasy Fest is an annual celebration in Key West, Florida that is sort of a combination of Mardi Gras, Carnival, and Halloween all rolled into one, but many have trouble pinning it down and defining it.


Perhaps some pictures will help... (click for larger view)

Travel Tuesdays: Starwood Luxury Collection Hotels: Worldwide List

Whenever I travel around the world, I travel as economically as possible. I don't have the money to travel how I'd like to travel, so I make compromises in my quest to visit every country in the world.

But sometimes I daydream. I've worked in top resorts and hotels before in both the United States and the Maldives. Through such work, I've sometimes been able to stay in some very upscale (5 and 6 star) hotel and resort properties worldwide that I wouldn't normally have been able to afford (like staying in a tented pool villa on Madivaru Island in North Ari Atoll in the Maldives with the Banyan Tree group.


Now that I've travelled a bit more, my daydreams have become more specific. I've started to wonder what a RTW trip in pure luxury would look like, and then I thought of The Luxury Collection by Starwood.

When many think of luxury, extravagence is often synonymous.

From the dictionary, extravagant |ikˈstravəgənt| adjective
  • lacking restraint in spending money or using resources
  • costing too much money
  • exceeding what is reasonable or appropriate; absurd
I settled on the Starwood Luxury Collection as my standard for large, international hotel groups rather than magazine lists of Top 100, which are spread around different brands.

However, Starwood didn't have a clear list of all their Luxury Collection hotels, so I went through country-by-country to create the following "authoritative" list with links for those looking for spoiling that special someone.
