What is GOOP?

When browsing Cookie Magazine’s Going Places Blog I noticed the mention of GOOP, a weekly newsletter by Gwyneth Paltrow. I’m not one to follow celebrities, however I really liked some of her posts and her desire to raise global citizens strikes a chord with me. Her post on Kid-Friendly Dining in NYC, London, Paris, Chicago and LA offered a refreshing mix of restaurants that are sure to please adult and child alike.

Just recently, I was looking at the family dining section in a London guidebook and there was Rainforest Café. A perfect place while in the states, but I’m not going all the way to London to eat at the Rainforest Café! Also, I’m hoping that Gwyneth’s health conscience approach takes me to restaurants that offer children something besides chicken fingers. There’s only so much fried food my kids can take on a trip, especially because we don’t eat that way at home. So, I’ve put my faith in Gwyneth and made a few reservations based on her suggestions.

Beyond restaurants and recipes, she offers health, life and fashion tips. The newsletters are short, easy to read and provide information on one topic at a time. Because she’s not trying to sell anything (beyond her image-of course), the website is noticeably void of flashing “click here” buttons and sidebars listing products. Enjoy!

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
