Two luxury travel web sites are drumming up some publicity with a search for a discerning traveler willing to spend a year traveling to the world’s most luxurious destinations and filing brief resorts on how they’re doing.
VeryFirstTo is a web site that strives to tell subscribers—it’s free, by the way—when new, high-end stuff comes on market. A new fragrance, watch, tie, or hotel—VeryFirstTo alerts you so you can keep up with the keeper uppers. LTI stands for Luxury Travel Intelligence, a site that promises to “empower the affluent traveler.”
Both sites want a person of refinement who appreciates the best in life and can give it a sniff. You’ll travel the world for a year with a budget of a cool million dollars. You’ll check out the new Aman hotel in Venice, eyeball the crowd at the newly expanded Hakkasan nightclub at the MGM Grand in Vegas, and spend some time at Richard Branson’s private island home and resort on Necker Island (pictured) in the Caribbean to see if, as the press release says, the food “has improved.”
The downside: You don’t get paid. Here’s where to find more details.
