Travel is so much more than just ticking boxes and saying you were there. It’s not about doing things for the sake of doing them, or seeing things just because you should.
For us, travel is all about experience. It’s a single moment that can change your life. It’s the people you meet who change your entire perspective. It’s a way of thinking, a philosophy.
It’s recognising that you only live once,
but if you do it right, once is all you need.
