As told to Carrie Goldberg
The New York-based designer has her eyes set on one of her bucket list destinations, Bhutan.
When asked where she'd like to travel, designer Tory Burch dreams of Bhutan. A special place best known for its spirituality, intrepid outdoor activities, and the Tiger's Nest, a sacred Buddhist site located in the cliffs of the upper Paro valley.
According to luxury trip planner and BAZAAR contributor Black Tomato, Bhutan opened its doors to tourists in 1974 and is best enjoyed between March to May and September to December, due to its summer rainy season. As for COVID restrictions, the country now requires travellers to have a business or student visa for entry and observe a two-week quarantine upon arrival; come high season in September, Bhutan plans to have all its residents fully vaccinated due to their efforts to quell the spread of the virus nationwide. Note: The country currently requires all those who are visiting for leisure to arrange their trips with registered tour operators. Ahead, Burch shares her dream itinerary including where she'll stay in Bhutan and all the activities she has planned.

My In-Flight Ritual
View this post on Instagram
My ideal flight is one with no turbulence and a safe landing. Otherwise I’m not particularly high maintenance during the flight—but I do have my rituals. I always tie a red ribbon on my bags for good luck. If it’s a long trip, I pack a travel pillow. I bring my own snacks and food—ever since my first flight when I was young, plane food has not been a favorite delicacy.
Our Sete Woven Tote is the perfect carry-on. The unstructured design expands to fit everything: my iPad, EO lavender hand sanitizer, Chanel face moisturizer, a small pillow, a few of our face masks, and my friend Samantha Boardman’s new book, Everyday Vitality: Turning Stress into Strength.
