Destination: The World.
For each of us, there is an abundance of unique global travel experiences just right for our travel personalities. The difficulty is that sometimes it’s like finding a needle in a haystack, and discovering the travel niche that suits us amongst the chaff can be a process. Forget the bucket list of travel tick-boxes, this is for travellers that want more than superficial travelling. Destination World is for travellers who want to travel with depth, to know and understand something about where they are going, and not figure on merely passing through.
We fell into jobs in Papua New Guinea in the 80’s not really knowing anything about Melanesia and had to quickly adapt to the ensuing culture shock. Many years later we still have a close relationship with Melanesia being deeply involved within Vanuatu, helping out a remote community with their tourism initiative.
Destination Vanuatu provides an array of travel experiences, idyllic landscapes, must-see natural phenomenon, cultural insights into Ni-Vanuatu “kastom”, along with meeting wonderful friendly people.
Whats your thing? Do you enjoy diving deep into cultural experiences, or perhaps you are enthusiastic about cycling rail trails through a countries past, trekking through unbelievable scenery, or visiting ancient historical sites. Themed travel can be the focus of any trip from unbelievable architecture of Gaudi in Barcelona, Vietnamese cuisine in Ho Chi Minh city, or exploring the ancient world in Cappadocia Turkey. Travel journeys can be framed around a single theme, or a combination, and add to the richness of the travel experiences.
For those of us who enjoy experiential travel, it is difficult not to form some connection with some of the destinations we travel to, especially when those communities are striving to eke out a future for themselves within harsh environments.
Sometimes the connection in our travels make us want to do something for the communities we have visited. Becoming involved in social initiatives in places that we have visited can be a rewarding experience that needn’t be an overbearing commitment.
Travel Planning & Issues.
Like most things in life, travel can be complicated, issues can occur, and things do go wrong. For those that don’t want to get involved in the organisational side, that’s what travel agents are for. For everyone else, being well informed before your trip is everything; getting up to speed on how to prepare for a trip, investigating types of accommodation, pitfalls & safeguards around booking agreements, & seeing how climate change may affect you, are all essential facets. At a personal level, developing a code of social responsibility in regard to your own behaviour is important.
