Sure the idea of ticking off your dream destinations in one fell swoop, like so many Bond movie backdrops, appeals, but the realities of modern travel – flight delays, planes packed like sardine cans, new cities to navigate without aid, not to mention the time it would take to sew those choice destinations together into one trip – are enough to make you shift those well-intentioned plans into the unforeseeable future.
If you’re really set on seeing some of the world and are willing to spend a bob or two to do it, then the new raft of private jet itineraries from Four Seasons, the world’s first hotel group to offer their own flights, might be the ticket, so to speak. Using their own luxuriously revamped and recently launched 757 private jet, the hotel company whisks a select few on whirlwind trips to the world’s most indulgent locals. How about a few sinfully good nights in LA before a sun-soaked weekend in Bora Bora, and a few days sailing on Sydney harbour? Then it’s off to dawn at the Taj Mahal, your bootmaker in Prague, and a visit to London to look up old friends and new haunts. During the 24-day itineraries, you’ll travel with like-minded world wanderers in style, staying at the world’s top Four Seasons hotels, and enjoying selected Dom Pérignon vintages onboard.
Which saves you from having to pop into Reims on the way.
