WHO AM I IN A NUTSHELL?

I am a nomad and a luxury travel expert who believes that “Home is where I sleep tonight.”  When I was four years old, our house burnt down in the middle of the night forcing my family and I to seek shelter in our neighbor’s house. Since then, everyone in my family has adopted a nomadic lifestyle, especially me. I learned at a young age that the most important things in life are your experiences because they will forge your memories.

I named my blog Luxe In A City, not because I wanted to show the world what you could buy in a given city but because I wanted to show that, for me, time spent in a city is my ultimate luxury. In essence, Luxe In A City simply means Time In A City.

WHY I LOVE LUXURY TRAVEL BLOGGING?

I am a luxury travel expert who lives the life of a billionaire on a budget. If you understand the wealthy, you already know that time, not luxury goods, is usually defined as their ultimate luxury. Having worked for billionaires, celebrities, and successful entrepreneurs for over six years, I learned that I could live a life typically reserved for the wealthy if I cherish my time above all else. After all, the new rich is defined as time and mobility, no longer as ownership.

Time as a luxury is why I love my travel blog. It has allowed me to show my passion for travel, to live life on the road, and to share my knowledge with fans who seek similar interests. I wouldn’t change my lifestyle for anything in the world. I invite you to join my adventure and feel inspired by a nomadic luxury lifestyle.

WHERE HAVE MY TRAVELS TAKEN ME?

Since 1998, I have been roaming the world in search of new adventures, and since 2011, I have been sharing my stories on my luxury travel blog.  As a luxury travel expert, my travels have brought me to 70 countries and have spanned over 150 months of discoveries.

Some of my most amazing adventures include:

  • Road tripping from Canada to Peru on the Pan American Highway for 22 months. (30,000 km – Canada, USA, Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru). Trip in progress as I am currently making my way to Argentina;
  • Sailing the Intracoastal Waterways, a series of lakes, canals, and rivers that connect Montreal to Miami, on a 33′ Kelsall catamaran with my father for 2 months (3000 NM – Canada, USA);
  • Working aboard prestigious superyachts owned by Russian billionaires, American celebrities or successful entrepreneurs for 40 months. (40,000 NM – Caribbean, USA, Mediterranean, North Sea, Seychelles, Maldives, Thailand);
  • Working as a personal assistant to ultra-high network individuals while traveling the world for 30 months. (50+ flights – Caribbean, Canada, USA, and Europe);
  • Working in the Canadian Naval Reserve (aka Navy) aboard destroyers and minesweepers or as a Naval Intelligence specialist for 36 months. (20,000 NM – Canada and the USA);
  • Backpacking through South East Asia for six months. (5,000 km – Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Taiwan);
  • Sailing the Caribbean on a very basic Wharram catamaran with my father for six months. (5,000 NM – USA, Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico, and Belize);
  • Backpacking through Latin America for three months. (3,000 km – Costa Rica, Panama);
  • Living on a Princess Cruise ship for three months (30+ ports of call – Caribbean, United Kingdom, and Mediterranean);
  • Backpacking solo through Europe for four months (5,000 km – Turkey, Latvia, Ireland, Sweden);
  • Living as an expat in Milan for ten months while going on numerous side trips. (Morocco, Spain, Slovenia, United Kingdom, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Portugal, Lebanon);
  • Road tripping solo around the Great lakes of North America (7,000km).

WHAT ARE MY FUTURE TRAVEL PLANS?

I am currently on the second leg of my Pan American road trip with my boyfriend, Tommy, and my Bengal cat, Mikadué, driving around South America for the next 24 months, slowly visiting Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina, Chile & Easter Island. Saying this, I will be doing a lot of side trips whenever I feel the need for a different type of adventure. Planned side trips include revisiting Lebanon, France, Italy, Switzerland, Canada, the Bahamas and the USA, possibly visiting South Africa, Mozambique, Botswana, Tanzania, Namibia, Jordan, Cyprus, Austria, Belgium for the first time as well as spending more time sailing in the Caribbean on my father’s catamaran.

I would highly consider other travel adventures in other destinations.

HOW TO WORK WITH ME

Editorial Coverage:  Invite one of my travel writers or me to experience your hotel, restaurant, spa or luxury brand, and we will share our honest experience with our fan base. We are always roaming the world, so please get in touch to find out about our availability.

Press Trips: Although we usually prefer to travel at our leisure pace, we will consider an organized group press trip that sparks our interest, but we recommend to invite us to a private press trip to get the most out of our partnership.

Please note that I usually travel with my boyfriend, Tommy, and my Bengal cat, MikaDue, or with a close friend/family member but I can sometimes be tempted to travel solo.

Sponsored Posts with social media coverage: If you are unable to offer us an invitation to experience your brand in real life, consider sponsored a blog post or a series of blog posts with social media coverage.

Sponsorship: I travel very light and only carry things that I love, but if you think I would be a great brand ambassador for your products/services, do reach out to me for possible collaboration.

Digital marketing & consulting services: As an expert in luxury travel, I work with an exclusive list of high-end luxury travel, superyacht, and private jet brands to oversee their editorial and social media calendars as well as create the content needed to engage their discerning fans.

Contact me at “roxanne at luxeinacity dot com” to start a partnership.

NoteI do not sell links or banner ads nor do I accept random SEO blog posts that will not add any value to our fans. I do not accept unsolicited press releases as I believe in creating authentic travel content.
