Last year’s pause was an opportunity to think about rebooting travel for the better by becoming more conscious of where our money goes, and how to use the enormous power of tourism to sustain cultures and environments and perhaps even leave them better off.
The strain of the pandemic, compounded by stressful jobs and busy lives, has given way to the understanding that self-care and work-life balance are key factors to achieving a happy, healthy and meaningful life. Taking a couple of days off, to pause your daily routine and journey to a new destination, far or near, brings us joy in otherwise tough times.
I am combining my passion for traveling with wellness experiences that go beyond walls, or any tradicional Spa. Focused on modern wellness travelers, this retreat was all about physical, emotional and mental well-being while enjoying the benefits of pampering and taking care of oneself.
I believe there is no better way of treating ourselves than with a retreat. Stepping out of our routine and away from the noise, the congestion and the familiar creates fertile ground for reflection, understanding, compassion and growth. We’re better able to identify patterns that might be holding us back, keeping us stuck or making us play small. A retreat broadens the scope. It gives our bodies time to rest, nourish and recover. When the body is at ease, the mind becomes more creative, sharp and fluid. When the mind is creative, sharp and fluid, this human experience becomes elevated.
Looking ahead, the year 2022 may be the year that all travel becomes wellness travel.
