Tell me, what is it you plan to do, with your one wild and precious life? Mary Oliver, ‘The Summer Day’

As a forty-year-old woman, my desires regarding travel are not the same as most

I don’t want to rush from one place to the next ticking off ‘must see’ destinations - do you?

Instead, let’s soak up the local culture, slowly discovering beautiful towns and cities, enjoying plant-based food and the odd glass of Sauvignon Blanc along the way. Let’s enjoy relaxing massages, walking in nature, and the possibility of some yoga. Let’s sit in cosy cafes, reading books and meeting local people. Let's spend time in libraries, galleries, museums and temples. Let's relax, reflect, recharge and enjoy.

There’s a whole world out there and it’s ours for the taking.
