Destination weddings promise a picture-book beginning to a marriage: vows exchanged on a beach or in a citrus grove, in front of a castle or on top of a mountain. Couples turn to destination, rather than local, weddings for a number of reasons, some aspirational, others practical. We can help you navigate the special stressors of destination weddings while amplifying their unique charms of the destination.
Today’s solo traveller is no longer defined by their relationship status or whether they have like-minded friends. Instead, they are increasingly choosing to leave their loved ones behind in order to do what they want, when they want and get a bit of hard-won ‘me time’. The results found that relaxation is the number one motivator for solo leisure travellers around the world as well as getting away from routine and exploring new cultures.
Adventure travel beckons the curious, the thrill-seeker, the boundary-pusher. And as more and more travellers approach their holidays with active and open minds. It is a combination of natural wonder, extreme activities, and remote locations—say, searching for snow leopards in Bhutan or mountain biking through the Dolomites, eating your way through Mexico City’s food markets and street vendors or even climbing up Denali. Even the most dedicated couch potatoes can admit there’s a certain rustic glamour here.
