There is something magical about travel, the fresh perspective it gives you when you learn about different cultures, habits, and ways of life. The acceptance that we are all different, but still the same... To me, that is the magic of travel.
Mark Twain’s quote is the best explanation: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”
We need to travel because it's magic!
After the horror of 2020, the year of 2021 gave us a little bit of normalcy, at least with certain destinations, and travel resumed, but things are different:
Now you have to deal with entry requirements, locator forms, testing...
All of these extra steps - are here to stay probably for the next couple of years, and we are getting used to it even though it is a pain...
I have to wonder, is this a message from the universe? Telling us we should travel slower?
If so, Mr. universe, I couldn't agree more!
If you watched any of my videos, you know I always 'preach' that slower travel is so much better...
Now, with the entry regulations, testing requirements, and all other things that you need to do nowadays to enter a country, slower-paced travel makes total sense. This is why I see it as a sign from the universe!
I strongly believe the era of visiting “6 countries in 10 days” should stay in the past, and I consider myself to be an ambassador - revealing and popularizing that the magic of travel is enhanced with a longer stay in each destination visited.
The longer stay allows more time to create a personal and cultural connection that creates a more authentic experience of the destination and your trip becomes truly meaningful. On top of that, the impact on the local community is greater, while the carbon footprint is minimized.
It is a win for you, a win for the destination, and a win for the world.
I want to help YOU travel in a better way, so I will suggest staying longer in each place rather than rushing to the other.
I will put together the most amazing program for you, according to your wishes and according to the things you love to do, things you wish to experience, and it will be a trip to remember!
Slower-paced travel will seduce you while you interact with the locals as you visit the little towns, off-the-beaten-path spots, and hidden gems!
Contact me with your travel requests, and we will make your dream trip come true!
Also, I am setting up several small-group-torus in 2022 that I will personally host. I hope to see you there! Sign up for the newsletter and follow my TikTok to make sure you don't miss the announcement!
