Everyone’s different. Some people yearn for the smell of lavender oil as they laze on massage tables in luxury spa resorts. Others crave the smell of fresh fir trees as they sit in their tent in the middle of the wilderness.

It’s important to understand how you like to travel, to build experiences, to challenge yourself, change the pace, expand your perspective. To have an adventure; to have fun.

Despite doing lots of research not all our travels go according to plan. Sometimes we end up in places that we don’t connect with. But these places are important because they teach us more about how we like to travel.

Here you can revel in our failures, learn from our mistakes or understand those places that help define our style of travel.
