It’s ONLY Tuesday so naturally, we’re dreaming about vacations and warm weather getaways! Here’s how The Laundress ladies, Gwen Whiting and Lindsey Boyd, unwind…

When Gwen’s not enjoying the beaches in New York, she can be found on one of the seas from the Mediterranean to the Ionian to the Aegean. She doesn’t discriminate between France, Italy, Sicily, or Greece! Last year was Sicily, and this year she is back to Greece.

She spends her days on a boat enjoying the landscape, water, and local culture or delving into the pile of books she’s been waiting all year to read. 

And her go-to item to pack? Heaps of sunscreen (although the sun there is MUCH more forgiving).

Lindsey’s favorite destination is Costa Careyes, Mexico. It’s a magical place where she feels relaxed as soon as she arrives. All that’s needed is a deep breath of ocean air and taking in the beauty of the natural preservation! This place is her sanctuary. Everyone has their “repeat” vacation spot, and this is her family’s.

She and her family love the local food scene in Costa Careyes. Whether it’s the catch of the day (that’s truly caught day of) or their amazing guacamole and pico de gallo, they enjoy experiencing all of the staple flavors. When it comes to drinks, Lindsey always gets the limonada which is fresh lime juice, water, and a little bit of sucre.

They spend their days swimming, playing tennis, horseback riding, and most importantly just “hanging out” as her daughter says.
