Inspired by their love of travel, Alexis Corry, owner and designer of Lex & Lynne, and her husband Zachary Kappel welcome you to explore their adventures and findings from around the globe.
Alexis and Zach first crossed paths as teenagers in Vero beach Florida, forming a young friendship that would one day become a life partnership. Years later following Alexis’s move from New York City, she and Zach reconnected in Pittsburgh. The two found in each other, something more than love of travel, but the idea that a new experience is sweeter shared with another than in solitude. So, one beautiful ceremony later in a 12th century village tucked away in the hills of Tuscany, Italy, a new adventure began.
Travel tips, references, itineraries, and updated guides; secrets and surprises, join them on their journey as they strive to explore and roam this beautiful world.
World Travel Guide
STAY: HOTEL SOL Y LUNA
Discover Urubamba, a small town located in the Peruvian Highlands at around 9,500ft high, where we stayed in a luxury casita at Relais & Chateaux Hotel Sol y Luna. With our own private casita, we found comfort and adventure in the Sol y Luna experience, and you will, too. The hotel's regionally inspired architecture and artwork complements the landscape and immediately transports you to the Peruvian paradise most travelers only dream about. Embrace the spirit of the Sacred Valley and stay in luxury in the center of it all!
DISCOVER: THE FAROE ISLANDS
With so much to see and do in the Faroes we wanted to break it down island by island to give a run through of our favorite spots to seek out. We wanted to start with the largest island in the Faroes and the place where we spend a majority of our time when visiting – Streymoy.
Discover the land and the water of the region Lake Titicaca, the breathtaking Lake within the Andes Mountains that straddles the border between Bolivia and Peru. Beyond the horizon you'll experience faraway lands, unique cultures, and landscapes only one can imagine.
A remote destination that should be on every person's bucket list, see Peru through the eyes of locals and travel by boat to the floating Islands, meet the Uros, and Taquile Island.
DINE: AU PAVILLON
If you're a foodie like us, get ready to discover the absolutely perfect Au Pavillon located at Baur au Lac Hotel in Zurich, Switzerland.
Fine dining at its best, Lex and I were lucky enough to experience Au Pavillon during black truffle season and have documented it all for you on our blog.
Truly for the epicurean, the modern take on traditional Swiss fare is sure to be one of your favorite meals yet.
Shortly after our stay our friends at Au Pavillon were rewarded their second Michelin star.
EXPERIENCE: INKATERRA MACHU PICCHU PUEBLO HOTEL
Inkaterra's Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is a dream-destination for your ultimate Peru getaway! Immersed right in the heart of the jungle with all-inclusive dining and excursions. We have fallen head over heels in love with this luxury hotel, and you will, too. With a private casita, gorgeous spa, and first-class amenities, feel at home as you discover one of the greatest wonders of the world!
INDULGE: LA CHAPELLE SAINT MARTIN
Lex and I seek out a luxurious chateau nestled in the French countryside to celebrate our anniversary, La Chapelle Saint Martin in Limoges, France, where we immediately felt at home and the staff and owners treated us like family. Fine dining, beekeeping, a private tour at Bernardaud, a restored monastery, exploring the countryside in a vintage CV2, our weekend was filled with romantic adventure and culinary delights!
STAY: BAUR AU LAC
The most important thing about a trip to Zurich is to have a centrally located home base. We recently passed through this beautiful city for a few days, mixing a little bit of business with pleasure and enjoying the city.
When looking for the best location and service in the city there is one answer – Baur au Lac.
Baur au Lac gives you the hands down best proximity from all sites to seek out in Zurich, dining destinations, and city hot spots while offering the best service and amenities. From their onsite 2 Michelin star restaurant, Au Pavillon, to the breathtaking views of the Lake Zurich, Baur au Lac was the one stop answer to the perfect visit to Zurich.
