DREAM … of places you’ve yet to discover
This blog is about adventures in travel and the thrill of discovery, whether it’s taking a dip in the cenotes of the Yucatan (those mysterious underground pools) or joining an art and culinary tour around Miami. Travel is about the new, the undiscovered, and this is where its mystique lies. Travel writing is part memoir. It’s not only about the physical journey but also the emotions we experience, the shock of the new, the encounters with cultures where lives, beliefs and environments are very different to ours. We are changed by what we have discovered – the realization that we have much in common with other cultures – we see a mother nursing her baby – and also by the ‘otherness’ – taking a ride in a rickshaw taxi, for example. Travel is about the self-discovery that happens along the way.
GO … plan your trip
Be amazed by the extraordinary revelation that is Africa, the original source of humankind. Our species evolved out of Africa’s extraordinary diversity of nature and rich ecosystems. This is a continent with over 2000 languages, ancient cultures and magnificent landscapes found nowhere else on earth. What used to be called ‘the dark continent’ is now a welcoming place of discovery, excitement and a thousand different travel options: from camel treks through Morocco’s high Atlas Mountains overnighting in an ancient Berber village, to a bead and textile tour of Limpopo, South Africa.
