Ever asked yourself why do we travel? Some find the answer to be pretty simple; they travel to relax, sight-see, and shop, for some others the answer is not as simple; some would go to the remotest of places to challenge themselves in climbing a mountain, or cycling long scenic routes, others would do all it takes to master a new skill at its birthplace be it cooking, hand-crafting, or even dancing, while some others would choose to disconnect from their tiring life routine by meditating, or joining a yoga retreat. We believe that this what travel is all about; not to just see the world, but to experience and get the best out of it.
Here is some ideas to get you started 😉

That’s an experience that we wouldn’t want you to miss. (Below photo by Andrea Balducci)
