JANUARY has been Travel Counsellors biggest ever month in its 28-year history.
We have seen people shaking off their bucket lists and I have loved being part of my clients’ excited planning and helping bring their dreams to life.
Some will be setting off soon on their first ever trip to Australia to see long lost friends and also taking the opportunity to see the many wonders it has to offer.
I have clients taking their family to celebrate their 50th birthdays on the paradise island of Bali to experience its culture, beautiful temples, exquisite food, lush jungles, emerald paddy fields and obviously those fabulous beaches.
Two couples are celebrating landmark wedding anniversaries – one couple is escaping to the little Greek island of Paxos with plans to spend their days shading under olive trees and toasting their 30 years in tavernas dotted around the pretty harbour in the evening. Another couple is heading off to the Indian Ocean and looking back on 20 happy years on the beautiful island of Mauritius.
I have so many more in the planning: Spanish road trips; crossing through the Rockies in an RV; safaris in Tanzania ending with beach days on the Spice Island of Zanzibar; visits to see the big man at his home in Lapland, plans to see the Northern Lights from Arctic Treehouses, sailing through the Norwegian Fjords, trips taking in the majestic sights of Montenegro; Mickey and his mates in Florida… the list goes on.
Bucket lists come in all shapes and sizes – some to nearby places some far away. I hope that you have fun dusting off your own lists and do let me know if I can help you in the planning. I can be reached on 01636 870010.
