Luxury travel knows no constraints. High-end digs can be found from London to Istanbul, Borneo to Iceland. But beyond that, we crave unique and authentic experiences when we travel. Who wants to be a “tourist” when we can be “travelers”? As travelers we find depth, meaning, and authenticity through our journeys, elevating a mere vacation to a transformation, an experience which leaves a lasting imprint long after we arrive back home. The best travels reward not only us the travelers, but also the hosts and countless others we encounter while abroad. Cross-cultural exchange, the flow of ideas and energy between travelers and the people we encounter, is one of the most laudable privileges we can enjoy in our globalized world. So while we appreciate and expect only the best in luxury resorts, guides and transport, the totality of experience is key; immersive, authentic, long-lasting. Transformational travel is the cornerstone, the goal.
