It’s a brand-spankin-new year (yipppeeee!), so naturally it’s time to make some new travel plans. London, Fiji, Gstaad, Mauritius…the possibilities are truly endless! We asked 7 of our favorite travelers to tell us where 2015 will take them…looks like it’s going to be an exciting year!

I am actually leaving next weekend for my “baby moon.” We are going to Punta Mita, Mexico—to the Imanta. It’s supposed to be this amazing 12-room hotel with huge bungalows & private pools. I can’t wait to swim with my naked, pregnant body all day while sipping (sadly virgin) margaritas and eating the fresh ‘catch of the day’! Apparently it’s Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite hotel in Mexico…and I live by the rule of thumb: “Good enough for Gwyneth, Good enough for me!”

I already know that I’ll be going to Paris in March, but I’m hoping to go to Korea and Mexico City as well

I’m dying to go to Morocco! And Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos!

I’m hoping to head home to London this year—I haven’t been since March and I’m desperately homesick!!! Whilst there I’m totally planning to stay at Babington House in Somerset—an amazing hotel-spa which is part of the Soho House Group (I still can’t believe I’ve never been!). I’m also currently renovating my house in upstate NY and the interior designer, Susie Atkinson, the name behind many of the Soho House projects, is a total inspiration.

In 2015, I’m dying to visit the Sequoia National Park in California. Those giant trees are so magnificent! I’ve never visited California’s forest parks, but I’d love to make a road trip out of it and spend some time camping there. I think my kids would love it, too – those trees really are awe-inspiring, it’s like being in another world.”

I am planning on heading to Paris and the South of France in early summer.

For 2015 I want to go to Istanbul, Essaouira, the Maldives and the Seychelles…nothing terribly original! Also, I’ll hopefully end up in Argentina, and probably (and more realistically) take my boys to Wyoming and Montana…and surfing in Kauai!
St. Lucia, Caribbean
