As Business Insider’s Isobel Asher Hamilton previously reported, Sanchez has a pretty cool life. In addition to being a former TV anchor, she is a licensed helicopter pilot who also founded her own aerial filming company.
Bezos started the summer early by attending the Met Gala in May. While he didn’t participate in the “camp” theme, he did mingle with several members of the Kardashian family and Jared Leto.

As Business Insider’s Bradley Saacks previously reported, Bezos and Sanchez weren’t the only famous faces in the crowd that night: Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch were also at the match.
Since then, Bezos and Sanchez have been traveling all over together. In early August, they were pictured partying with entertainment mogul David Geffen aboard his superyacht off the coast of Spain in the Balearic Islands.
Other guests on David Geffen’s megayacht, the Rising Sun, included former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and the founder of Thrive Capital, Josh Kushner, along with his supermodel wife, Karlie Kloss.
Geffen’s Rising Sun reportedly cost $590 million. It can accommodate 18 guests and even has a basketball court onboard.

When Bezos was spotted aboard, he was already making headlines because reports surfaced that he owned a $400 million megayacht himself. The yacht in question went viral after being spotted off the coast of Turkey, but Amazon denied reports that it belongs to Bezos in a statement to Business Insider.
Bezos continued to spend plenty of time on yachts this summer. Shortly after cruising the Balearics with Geffen, he and Sanchez were also seen off the coast of Italy on Diane von Furstenberg’s sailing yacht.

Bezos is close with von Furstenberg and her billionaire husband, Barry Diller. The couples spent time exploring Venice, Page Six reported.
Diller and von Furstenberg’s superyacht is the largest privately owned sailing yacht in the world at 305 feet, according to Architectural Digest.

Not much is known about the yacht, but it is reported to have a glass staircase and a private Jacuzzi, and it can accommodate up to 16 guests.
That means there was plenty of room for other guests to join in on the outing: According to Page Six, entrepreneur Ricky van Veen and movie producer Jason Blum were on board, too.
Bezos also partied with Katy Perry and Lil Nas X in Seattle at the end of August. The two celebrities performed at a concert for roughly 45,000 Amazon employees to celebrate a successful Prime Day.

Bezos even threw on the graffiti jacket Lil Nas X wore to perform for a fun Instagram post.
Now the question is, where will Bezos be spending his winter months?
