The restrictions caused by the pandemic have created new expectations and new priorities in people for 2021. What does not change is the desire for holidays, for travel. The desire to leave never sets!
How we will travel
But will the way of traveling change?
Will we be looking for something more intimate and less crowded?
In this period of recovery, in the post covid, by booking their first vacation, people want something out of the ordinary to face personal challenges and, also, to avoid crowds and to live life experiences.
Here are the destinations to live unforgettable experiences
In my Instagram guides and in the blog we often speak about this new concept of travel:
It’s not only luxury hotels or trips of a thousand and one nights.
These types of “life experiences” I’m talking about are those that will be experienced once in a lifetime.
They will leave unforgettable moments and memories, though sometimes we need a little bit of spirit of adaptation.
We are talking about experiences that offer alternative tourism, such as living 48 hours with your partner in a cabin on a small otherwise deserted island in the middle of a lake in Sweden. Or sleeping in a tent under the starry sky of the Namibian desert or of the summit of Haleakala volcano on the island of Maui.
Or, again, face a dangerous multi-day trek in the virgin Kauai, to reach one of the wildest and most fascinating beaches in the world
Post covid holidays: when the tourist becomes the protagonist of the trip
It no longer matters to choose a famous destination.
These experiences can be found everywhere, you just need to live them with your heart.
It is the intimate contact with nature or, sometimes, with ourselves, the protagonist of the travel.
For example, I had my most intense experience climbing the 3922 steps of the Haiku Stairs, on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. There I found that I did not climb the ridge to the summit just to enjoy the magnificent scenery, but gradually I saw myself reflected into nature and I experienced a great feeling of well-being.
Traveling to rediscover yourself
A compromise inspires me to travel; what I mean is that we live frenetic lives with frantic schedules most of the time. This is a significant source of anxiety for me! Every one should find a way to lower the bar and break the monotony: I discovered my personal way through travel.
Traveling also means leaving your ‘comfort zone’!
