Newsletter Spring 2019

What does an ideal holiday look like to YOU?


One of my favourite seasons is spring, and here it is. The sun starts to be bright; the colourful flowers return, and it seems nature is reborn. Many people feel they have more energy and try to spend more time outside in a garden or taking a nice walk.

Maybe you are planning something interesting or exciting, like a short break in the countryside with your partner, or even a journey to an exotic country.

Whilst some of us like the thrill of a spontaneous and quick decision based on a cheap price, others of us chose a location based on recommendations of trusted friends, and still others on the most relaxing programme needing only flights, accommodation and a great beach.

If, however, you desire an unforgettably incredible and enriching experience, with special activities weaved in, the starting point for your research is a little different than the above options. The decision-making process can be worth taking more time over.

In this case you are trying to decide upon three key areas: where you would like to see, the activities you would like to partake in, and the level of service you would like from your accommodation arrangements.

We all know that packages which contain sightseeing tours, guided walks and any other tailor-made activities where you get a personalised service are more expensive than standard beach holidays. When we chose a holiday with these special activities it’s because we feel they give a higher value to the holiday. Hiking, walking, canyoning, caving, guided tours or walks, shopping and experiencing culture, for many of us, add dimensions to the holiday that make it more enjoyable and memorable. Knowing in advance that these details are taken care of adds a tranquil anticipation of the holiday and saves time and stress trying to sort them out yourself – if that’s even possible - when you are there.

The key to a wonderful holiday is good research. Enjoy the process, don’t rush, and be confident as you track down your next adventure!
