Family Travel: Postcards from Indagare Members

The Indagare community is always seeking (and returning with) inspiring finds and reports of incredible experiences. Here, members share adventures fit for the whole family.

This past year has seen a surge in travel, but family travel in particular has been an undisputed priority for much of the Indagare community. Not only have those trips that were put on the back burner during the pandemic finally come to fruition, but new trips have been slotted into the calendar, as travelers strive to see those far-flung, dream destinations with the people they love most. At Indagare, we believe that how you travel matters, and we remain committed to ensuring that your travels are as meaningful as possible. Below, several Indagare families—big and small—reflect on recent travels, and the memories they’ll never forget.

Spring Break in French Polynesia

The Stops: Bora Bora and The Brando

“The bungalow at the Four Seasons Bora Bora was massive and lovely, and the hotel, beautiful and top-rate. For activities, we did the Jet Ski with lunch at Bora Bora Beach Café, wakeboarding, swimming and snorkeling with sharks and stingrays. The Brando was also sublime. On the third night, the Beachcomber chef cooked the tuna we caught, and we were treated to a Polynesian dance performance from the staff. That was our favorite meal.”—Indagare member P.B.

Multi-Gen in Morocco

The Stops: Fez & Marrakech

“We had a fantastic visit to Morocco. The tours, accommodations and restaurants were terrific. We were especially thrilled with our guide… He was wonderful, punctual and detail-oriented, while also understanding that we were on vacation—he was always up for a spontaneous expedition. ‘Another great day’ was our refrain, starting with Volubilis (an excavated Roman city)… Everyone’s favorite meal was the mountaintop breakfast at a Berber home, though both Branson restaurants were also outstanding. We had a great time on the camels, and my kids loved the ATVs, which was my son’s first time driving other than Disneyland—how many kids can say that they learned to drive in the desert in Morocco?”—The Liftins

Escape to Jackson Hole

The Stop: Jackson Hole

“Jackson Hole was a magical getaway. We usually dream of a beach vacation, but with one child in college, we decided on a snowy trip with our high-school-age son. The highlight of the trip was the mountain view from our room at the Four Seasons, and the snowmobile journey past waterfalls to a dip in the natural hot springs was a blast. All great fun and relaxation.”—Amy & Carlo Salgado

Journey to Japan

The Stops: Tokyo & Kyoto

“There were so many moments that made this trip extraordinary and created lifelong memories for our family: we sampled food of all kinds in street markets; we hiked through a bamboo forest to play with monkeys; we watched our family be transformed into manga characters by an artist; stood awestruck at the Tokyo night skyline from the top of Shibuya Sky; and rolled through neighborhoods on bikes—and snacked on our guide’s favorite treats. A top highlight: the afternoon we spent in the garden of a local shrine with a professor of calligraphy who shared his amazing technique. He helped us capture our trip in words that were transformed into works of art themselves.”—Indagare member

Off to Oceania: Australia & New Zealand

The Stops: Sydney, Melbourne, Minaret Station & Cape Kidnappers

“We began with a Sydney Harbour cruise that felt like you were on a friend’s boat. Park Hyatt Sydney was top-notch, and the concierge at Park Hyatt Melbourne got us F1 tickets. Our guide took us on a bush tour overlooking Kangaroo Valley and was great with my kids. We got up close with wallaroos, wombats and wallabies. In New Zealand, Minaret Station was the standout. You helicopter in with the mountains all around you—the most jaw-dropping life-experience-packed trip we’ve ever been on. Every day had something we’ll remember for a lifetime.”—Steph Walker
