Carlin Laney's Itineraries
Where Carlin Laney has been
Cayo Espanto Island Resort
Cayo Espanto, Belize
This resort is a private island with only six villas, making it a very personal and private experience. The resort has its own chef, so all of our meals were enjoyed in our villa. The villa itself was super comfortable and beautiful, and featured its own private dock and beach area to lay out and relax in privacy. Each villa's guests are cared for by a staff team that only caters to your needs, so you can literally order drinks or food or whatever your heart desires whenever you wish. Each day, the chef offers a selection for each meal, or you can make your own specific requests (and everything is absolutely delicious). We enjoyed our meals in our villa, so it was incredibly relaxing to be able to feel secluded when we wanted and create our own schedule. In addition to being able to relax in the most luxurious of ways, the resort also makes it easy to find other fun activities to do while there. The resort has spa services that can be done in your villa, so you literally don't ever have to leave if you don't want to. If you want to explore, there are also numerous activities to satisfy these wishes. The island has sailboats and canoes for use whenever you wish. If you want to be more adventurous, the resort makes it easy to find trips and experiences to match your wishes. We went scuba diving at a nearby barrier reef, snorkeling with reef sharks, and visited the nearby town of San Pedro. All of this was scheduled through the resort so it was super easy to coordinate and made the excursions super relaxing and enjoyable. Overall, this resort and their staff caters perfectly to the vacation you dream of having. You can make it as relaxing and secluded, or as adventurous and active, as you wish. It was probably my favorite trip I've ever taken, and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a beachy vacation!
The Savoy Hotel
The Savoy, Strand, London, United Kingdom
This was an beautiful and comfortable hotel I stayed at a few nights with my parents. The food was delicious and staff was so friendly. They have a little coffee shop as well, with the best scones I had throughout my entire trip!
Meringue Girls Ltd, London, United Kingdom
I took a cooking class at this bakery, and it was so much fun!! This small bakery is famous for their meringues (they've made them for fashion week for Chanel) and they offer classes to learn how to create these cute and delicious desserts. The women were so friendly, the baking process was relatively simple, and the results were delicious and so cute! I will definitely make these again in the future.
The Experimental Cocktail Club
Experimental Cocktail Club Chinatown, Gerrard Street, London, United Kingdom
London is known for its cool bars and clubs, but this was definitely my favorite. The theme of this bar is similar to an old speakeasy. It's super secretive and it doesn't have a sign outside of it. After going behind a black door marked with a red X in the middle of London Chinatown, you enter a dimly lit, sleek atmosphere with beautiful cocktails being served all around. The drinks are amazing, and the vibe of the bar makes it an amazing experience.
Fortnum & Mason
Fortnum & Mason, Piccadilly, London, United Kingdom
This is definitely a well-known location in London. They're famous for their scones and chocolate cake and afternoon tea. This is definitely a great place to go if your looking for an authentic London activity.
