full-throttle fun

Everything changed the day I drove Roxanne Pulitzer’s Porsche. I’d just interviewed the socialite and author for a story, and she offered the wheel on our way back to my office. When I hit the gas, my head snapped back like I was on a rodeo horse, and my body pressed so deep into the seat that I thought the car was going to swallow me whole. In the time it took for Pulitzer’s 911 Targa to go from zero to 60, which was about five seconds, I became obsessed with the physics of speed—and with the exhilaration and freedom of a well-made ride. In this travel-themed issue, we salute the summer road trip not only for the memorable destinations but also for the joy of the journey itself. Perhaps there’s…

fashion on the fly

After a near miss involving a baggage claim delay and a connecting flight, Bethany Sharp and her husband, professional race-car driver Scott Sharp, vowed to stick to carry-ons for their frequent travels. This practical decision brought Sharp’s passion for pairing every event with the perfect outfit to a halt. As a result, she began planning to have her trip wardrobes waiting for her upon arrival. Soon, Lady Jetset, a travel concierge service that rents high-end designer wear, was born. “We ship your travel wardrobe to your destination ahead of time so you can skip the hassle of packing and hauling it all with you,” says Sharp, who lives in Florida. “I like to say it’s the Uber Black of shopping and packing. It’s not for the classic black dress that does…

“WE LOVE EXPLAINING TO PEOPLE AT EVENTS WHAT MAKES THE BIMINIME SPECIAL.”—Brynne Peck When Neapolitans Brynne Peck and Lani Liuzza visited a Fort Lauderdale boat show two years ago, they got toasty—and creative. “We were so uncomfortable in the sun that we decided to sit down for a minute, and we began to wonder, why are all of us exposed?” Peck recalls. “There were swarms of people shopping for expensive boats who we knew also spent a lot of money on their skin, but their faces, necks, and arms were baking. So we had a glass of wine and took out a notebook to jot down ideas. Sunglasses don’t cover enough, and not everybody wants hat head.” But what these stylish shoppers would want, the friends surmised, was an upscale accessory, not a…

Lauren Demarest and Veronica Kennedy still laugh about being named “Naples Notables” by their teachers when they were classmates at Naples High School. “And now, after both having careers in New York, we’re doing business together in Greece,” Demarest says. The best friends who met their freshman year moved back to Naples after college and then ended up in the Big Apple in 2011, where Demarest was an advertising copywriter and Kennedy worked in operations for an investment bank. Although their professions took different paths, their passion for fitness and travel did not. “Two years ago, we totally fell in love with Greece, but we had a problem finding a great outdoor workout,” Demarest says. “Yoga retreats were days or even weeks long, and we wanted to do more than just go…

In her seminal 1937 book, Out of Africa, Danish author Karen Blixen evokes the romance that attracted generations of adventurers, tourists, wildlife lovers, and animal hunters. “Everything that you saw made for greatness and freedom, and unequalled nobility,” she wrote. Andrew Fentiman personally responded to Africa’s siren call, first as a safari guide in East Africa in the late 1970s and then as founder and president of Safari Consultants of London, based in Southwest Florida. The English-born resident of Bonita Springs draws upon his 40 years of experience to recreate the old-world glamour and style of African journeys for global clients, including celebrities and royals, that showcase the continent’s wildlife and culture. “Most people want to see ‘the big five’ [lions, elephants, leopards, Cape buffalo, and rhinos] and have some kind…
