HAPPY NEW YEAR!
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
As we enter 2021 with new hope for things better, let's talk about your travel comfort zone. Many people are hesitant to travel beyond the destinations they already know. Decide this year to open up new possibilities for you and your travel companions.
For some, however, a vacation can be very stressful. If that's the case with you, let us help you take a short, structured vacation in order to get used to the experience of having time off. Also, work with us to plan your trip properly, in advance, to avoid last-minute panic and chaos.
When we travel, we may notice that some of the things we’ve heard about the world end up being very different than what we were indoctrinated and conditioned to believe. Many of the initial myths that get dispelled are often about traveling itself. Where you once may have thought it was too expensive and dangerous proves to be less expensive than you thought and not dangerous at all. You may also realize how kind and friendly strangers can be, and how they are willing to help you. Beyond that, you have the whole world to learn about with every place you discover, every person you meet, and every culture you experience.
You don't speak the language? That's okay. In preparation for your trip, learn a few key phrases in the language used in your destination. This plants the seeds of enthusiasm for wanting to use your new-found skills when you arrive. Use the phrases when you get there. Even if you mispronounce something, no worries - you'll find the locals will be thrilled that you tried and you'll find they are more than happy to teach what you're trying to say.
Use us as a resource for your travel ideas - a place you've always dreamed of going - a destination you saw on a travel show - a location someone has told you about. We'll work through them together to make your trip the ideal one for you, whether you travel now or three years from now. And while traveling internationally may be a bit tricky for a little while longer, let us help you navigate what's needed to get you to your dream destination. Tell us where you want to go and what you want to do - we'll help you make it come true.
