TOP 10 REASONS TO TRAVEL IN 2022
It feels like many of us are out of practice when it comes to travel doesn’t it? But after almost two years at home, the world is finally on the move again and we thought we’d explore what travel means to us.
1. It’s never felt more precious
Just two years ago, we took jumping on a plane for granted. Imagine how it’s going to feel when you sit down for your first cup of mint tea under a bright blue sky. Which leads us on to…
You’ll also get to enjoy looking forward to your trip during the weeks or months after you’ve booked.
3. Friends (and family) reunited
We’ve been apart from the people we love for too long now. Travelling abroad together allows you to reconnect with each other in a way you’ll never get over lunch or a weekend.
4. Rest & reset
It’s been a gruelling couple of years on so many levels and we all need a break in order to recharge. A staycay is enjoyable but you’ll only really disconnect from day-to-day life when you leave it behind for a while.

9. Make memories
Meik Wiking, a researcher at the Happiness Research Institute and author of The Art Of Making Memories says: ‘Happy memories form the cornerstone of our identity… They influence our happiness in the current moment, as well as providing a framework for our hopes and dreams about the future.’
10. Pay it forward
Respectful travel creates vital income and employment for the community you visit.
