An epic journey to celebrate life together
by Silvanna Frappier
Anniversary should fill you with happy memories of the time you have spent together and joyful thoughts of years still to come.
Visiting places, people and experience the best the world has to offer, was exactly what my husband Marc and I choose to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary.
It also lead us into the decision of how we want to write the next chapter of our story together while staying closer to our love.
From here we move to our next stop: Meet Monemvasia, a hidden ‘Fortress Town’ nest on an island in Greece.
The island was initially settled on the top of the plateau, which is now referred to as the “Upper Town”. Gradually the settlement spread down the hill, and thanks to its uniquely well-defended position, developed into a powerful town. By the 18th century, Monemvasia went into decline until it was re-discovered by tourists in the 1970’s.
I absolutely love Rome, there is so much to see and do and without having to walk or travel too far. I love the surprises that are hidden around corners and the sheer beauty and awesomeness of the buildings and architecture. It is a great city to visit, anytime of the year, especially for a milestone celebration, after all Rome is the perfect plave to sa “Te Amo”
Ciao a Tutti!

Emotions Enhance Memory
by Damien Martin
Close your eyes and think of your most vivid memory. Got it? Good. What did you feel in that moment? Joy? Heartache? Odds are, you can recall almost exactly how you felt because you were experiencing powerful emotions.
It’s no secret that people remember emotional events well, but a study by New York University recently published in Nature Neuroscience has found that these events have a “hangover” effect. This means that right after an intense experience, we remember little things better too.
That explains why I could tell you all about the friendly bartender who let us take our bottle of wine outside to celebrate along the Seine the night I proposed to my wife in Paris. It’s also why I remember the smell by the river causing us to cut the evening short. The point is, I remember everything about that trip, not just the big moment.
That’s what makes entrusting your memories to the Virtuoso travel advisors at Largay such a wise investment. Paris is Paris. The view
from atop the Eiffel Tower will be breathtaking no matter how you get up there. But what else will you remember? Will you remember waiting in a seemingly endless line, or will you remember breezing right past that line and going straight to the top? Will you remember wondering what buildings you’re looking at, or will you remember your guide telling you in detail the history of each? Will you remember wandering around afterward looking for a decent café, or will you remember the delicious meal at a restaurant your advisor recommended? After all, they’re your memories for the rest of your life. Create them wisely.
