Traveling, Traveling, Traveling!!!! Whether it’s for work or pleasure, these days it’s a challenge. Flying, security, costs, just to name a few. In my case, I recently started traveling for work again and one of the most important things when I leave town for me, is safety and of course, comfort when I am away from home. Not always an easy task, but over the years I have established some “approaches” to traveling on the road. What type of places to stay at, working out, eating and depending on where I am, fitting a visit with friends who might live close to where I am working. Recently, I needed to visit some accounts in Northern California. I heard about a beautiful Inn central to my needs and decided to give it a try.
How many times in life does the hype add up to the actual experience? Well…A good friend from my Gucci days said, “You need to come to Beverly Hills and meet ALI!!!” “ Ali?” I said. Who the hell is Ali, and why do I “need” to meet him? She began to tell me the story, of Ali Soltani, the creator of Ritmo Mundo watches and how he recently signed a licensing deal for Izod watches. I thought, Awesome!!! Who doesn’t like a trip to Beverly Hills? I used to sell watches, I love watches and everything in my life right now is about my blog and bringing new interesting stories and products to my readers, so I headed to Beverly Hills to meet “Ali.”
