“In luxury” may be the way we like to travel, but it’s never been the reason why we travel. Unique travel experiences, discovering the world’s cultures and people are the things that make us jump on a plane with regularity. There is little better than forming a connection with the locals – sharing a smile, a story, a joke, and maybe even a big belly laugh with the people we meet. For us, the more we travel, the more we realise that we share a deep commonality with people around the world. We recognise that people are more the same than we are different and that any differences are what makes us interesting rather than odd or “the other”. And every now and then we’re struck by a wonderful soul, by the generosity of spirit of the people we meet.
