Whether it’s a month long trek through Europe, or a weekend getaway to NYC, the last thing anyone needs to worry about is taking a bank account hit because the airline you booked with has gone bankrupt.

Work is Play

I’m often seen around White Oaks dressed in my yoga pants and trainers, but on the “other” side of the sliding door that connects The “Club” to the conference centre engaging in various forms of “PLAY” with the conference guests. As the Recreational Director and manager of the Learning Institute at White Oaks, people often ask me “what is it [...]

Family Exercise (Fun’ercise)

Not only is it hard to get oneself into an exercise routine, it’s even harder to get your whole family to do so.

Mission In-SPA-sibble: Guy at the Spa

Men are ritualistic creatures. They like to eat the same thing for lunch everyday and read the same section of the paper first. Even rituals that one might consider an indication of a deeper underlying instability, like wearing the same pair of playoff socks for two months straight without washing them, seem perfectly logical to males.

Wedding Budget Blues?
