Inspire that part of you that loves nature. No matter how "city" you are, it's human nature that one should connect with outdoor nature for both energy and a sense of calm. Every pocket of the earth is brimming with incredible beauty.
The colors and curves of this landscape comes from the southwest coast of England at a point called The Lizard. The sound of thrashing waves, the punch of Atlantic winds, and the joyous calls of seabirds cannot be described fully in words. These are best best understood by feel, so I encourage you to ignite your senses by visiting a coastal dwelling like this.
Photography is something I love, and something most people I know consider a hobby. When I'm not snapping photos on my trips (or in this case snapping photos of people snapping photos), Learn how to take the best shots on your next trip. I'll show you how.
This photo is from a meal from Gordon Ramsay's Plane Food at Terminal 5 in London's Heathrow Airport. Prices are reasonable and the flavors are top notch. It's a good example of how you can enjoy yourself at airports. So much so, that you might just hope for a long layover on your next flight.
Sample the spectacular variety of goods sold along the hilly streets of San Francisco's Chinatown. The colors, smells, architecture, people, and outright variety of products are well worth experiencing. Take an even bigger leap by tasting the spiky or chewy textures you come across. Explore the flavors of cuttlefish or starfish. Or opt for a tropical fruit you've never tried.
Delight in lunch at a cafe with epic views — somewhere that inspires you with its beauty. When you find a view that merges natural and manmade marvels it simply feels magical.
This view is from Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, Italy. Getting there is quite an adventure, with winding, narrow, chaotic cliffside roads along the Amalfi Coast. Yet once there among the magnificent architecture, vibrant gardens, and tiered lemon groves, you'll find your sense of calm. The story of how this villa came to be, from its beginnings in the 11th century to modern day, is pretty awesome.
Excite in travel with the sights, sounds and constant buzz of a big city. Whether it's Seoul, Paris, or Chicago, you'll find endless opportunities for museums, theater, nightlife, dining and oh so much more.
Roam the streets, talk to passersby, and find the real local spots to go. Feel free to pick destinations from a guidebook, but leave time for some spontaneity and exploration.
Travel, your style
Are you the type who craves unique experiences when you travel, but are just too exhausted after a long day of work to spend hours in front of your computer looking at flights, hotels, airport transfers? And if you want to find the hidden gems of a place, it's so much more research time on top of that. And maybe the whole trip turns into more hassle than fun, as you're still figuring out what to do and see when you arrive.
I know how you feel. And that's why I started my business as a travel designer. Yes, I said travel designer, not travel agent. I take every unique individual, find out the style of travel that's just right for you, and create a blueprint of your travel itinerary. I make your trip painless, but I differ in the common style of travel agent, because personally, I'm not a fan of using them.
Don't get me wrong, they're ideal for many types of travelers, but when I've used them, I've felt like I was being sold to. Like rather than hearing me out and finding the rare ecolodges I like to stay at, they try to convince me I should squeeze in every day with tours and stay at resorts they've already been to.
On the contrary, I focus on finding the little hidden gems of travel, bearing in mind that some people like packed in schedules, but staying true to my mantra that every day needs time for wandering and getting "lost," because those moments open the door to some of the most insightful, refreshing, incredible experiences you can have on a trip.
After all, you don't want to go somewhere where you need a vacation from your vacation, and you don't want to go somewhere that looks so nondescript that you could be anywhere. If you want more, I want to find you more.
