Luxury Travel Advisor Turns One

We were delighted to be joined by so many dear friends and colleagues at Luxury Travel Advisor’s very first birthday celebration, which was held in grand style in the Louis XVI room at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York. Many of our guests flew from far distances to raise a glass of good cheer to our first year of publication and to wish us well as we forge ahead in 2006. We thank everyone in attendance for an evening of high spirits and excellent conversation in a most luxurious setting.
