Linda M. Raymer
Privileged Journeys, Travelink, American Express Travel, Nashville
Raymer looks at each journey she creates in three parts: the planning process, the trip itself, and the stories you tell afterward. She will put together private dinners in country houses, a tour of London in a Mini Cooper, and an excursion to Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge, where you can play Tudor for a day.
New Favorite: Firmdale has opened another winning hotel with the Ham Yard in Soho, London. The hotel is filled with thoughtful details—literary expert Philip Blackwell selected the books in the library; the drawing room has custom Bryon O’Casey rugs—and the 91 Kit Kemp–designed rooms are chic and playful.
Specialties: United Kingdom, Italy and Switzerland
