Roman Chiporukha and Erica Jackowitz, the husband-and-wife co-founders of luxury lifestyle management service and travel firm Roman & Erica, have compiled a list of their top trips to take in 2023 for holiday inspiration.
Roman & Erica are lifestylists, a service that goes far beyond that of a concierge or a travel curator. They operate as an extension of their clients, not only making their everyday life seamless but curating experiences for them. They offer one-of-a-kind, unmissable experiences to meet the needs of their members and make the impossible possible, from building tailored super-yachts to arranging a private tennis match with Roger Federer.
Roman and Erica’s list below includes the top destinations for 2023 they will be working on with their clients. Experiences range from the first-ever expedition from Osaka travelling along Japan’s oldest sea route to the launch of the world’s largest archaeological museum in Egypt.
With Bhutan opening back up to the world this past Autumn, it has also reopened its historic Trans Bhutan Trail after 60 years. Following two years of extensive restoration, the trail spans 250 miles through hundreds of historic and cultural sites, wildlife sanctuaries, and the most secluded parts of the kingdom.
Many seek ways to support local communities through their travel. The couple are looking closely at British Columbia this year with the launch of Indigenous-owned and operated Nemiah Valley Lodge, which marks the first tourism venture on Tsilhqotʼin, after a landmark ruling awarded the First Nation rights to their traditional territory.
With the FIFA Women’s World Cup and the 50th Anniversary of the Sydney Opera House, Australia is also making the list of top destinations for the year. The opera house is also celebrating its 50th anniversary with a year-long calendar of events, making Australia a must-visit destination this year.
For people who want to delve deep into history, Roman and Erica have their eye on Egypt and the opening of the long-awaited Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza which will include priceless items, including all objects excavated from Tutankhamun’s tomb.
The launch of the first-ever expedition from Osaka this coming spring will sail along Japan’s oldest sea route. The expedition will explore old feudal towns and traditional fishing villages on the coast of Honshu, as well as Inland Sea islands such as Inujima, great for any Japan-lovers looking to experience the country from a new perspective.
