Travel Learnings for 2020
It’s been a while since our last newsletter but it only means that we’ve been busy going on both real and imagined journeys, and picking up life learnings along the way. It also means that we’ve been trying to live in the moment, to see places with our eyes rather than through camera lenses.
Trouble is, when you look at it closely, the world is not always the idyllic paradise we travellers often make it out to be. But as long as we go with open minds and hearts, and celebrate our differences, the walls might start to dissolve. And we might realise that, in the end, travel is our best teacher.
We wish you and your tribe a wise and wonderful New Year.
