If you ask people what would they want to do if money was not an issue, most of them would say “travel”. It does not matter where because it could be anywhere, it can be by plane or by boat and it would be an amazing adventure that can last for a lifetime, for a year or for a month.
What is so special about travelling? It helps you disconnect and connect. You disconnect from you usual problems, your day to day work, a bad relationship or routine. It helps you connect, with different people, different cultures, different opinions and life styles, it helps you reconnect with yourself.
To better pin point the amazing benefits of travel, below are some interesting and inspiring quotes about travelling:
“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float
To gain all while you give
To roam the loads of land remote
To travel is to live” – Hans Christian Andersen
“A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles” – Tim Cahill
“Travel is more than seeing of sights, it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living” – Mary Ritter Beard
“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world” – Gustave Flaubert
“Travel is rebellion in its purest form. We follow our heart, we free ourselves of labels, we lose control willingly, we trade a role for reality, we love the unfamiliar, we trust strangers, we own only what we can carry, we search for better questions, we sometime choose to never come back” – unknown
“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” – unknown
“My favorite thing to do is to go where I have never been” – Diane Arbus
“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before” – Dalai Lama
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” – Saint Augustine
“Travel brings power and love back to your life” – Rumi
The above are only a few, because all those who travel have beautiful words to say about seeing, discovering and learning about the world we live in.
The world is such an amazing place, it has so many wonders to unravel to all of us and they are all waiting to be discovered. As another quote says “Travel leaves you speechless, and then turns you into a storyteller”. Travel helps us better understand and appreciate nature, humans and traditions. It brings modesty to your heart and richness to your soul. It helps you love other people and discover that we are not so different from each other, we all want to be happy and we all want to be able to enjoy the marvels of our planet.
Some people got so inspired by travelling that they made a family business out of it. Among these fortunate members of our world, I am mentioning today Vida Villas. This family has a history of travelling two or three times a year and transformed their passion into a business. Most of the times they have travelled they have stayed in privately owned apartments and villas and so they started out their own project and the first thing they did was to buy a property in Pollensa, in the north eastern part of the Balearic Island of Mallorca. They moved there from the United Kingdom, starting a new adventure, a new life and setting out their own company.
Vida Villas had a great success in renting their property and realized they can improve the travel experience of others by asking some of their friends if they wanted to rent their private homes, private villas for people who wanted to go on holiday on the beautiful island of Mallorca. Being a reliable family, others have agreed to give away their homes for a few days or weeks to those interested in having a comfortable and luxuriant holiday. Because deciding to stay in a privately owned property when going on holiday feels like being at home, away from home.
Since the beginning of their business, back in 2006, Vida Villas now has a portfolio of over one thousand properties, be they townhouses, villas or apartments that can be booked for the best holiday experience one can have.
Many of these properties are by the beach, so you can enjoy a romantic walk at the sunset, have a private pool, where you can enjoy all the privacy you need and children can have a great time without parents having to fear that their small ones will disturb others. Also, a villa with a pool can be the perfect venue for a celebration with your friends or family. For those who want to organize a special event by the pool area and have an elegant party, choosing to rent one of the villas from Vida Villas comes as a great, sophisticated and unique solution.
You don’t need an excuse to go on holiday and you don’t need to feel uncomfortable, choosing to rent a private villa from Vida Villas and trusting their expertise when it comes to spending holidays in privately owned properties is a comfortable and reliable solution. Needless to say, the family will give you insight on the best places to visit, eat and have fun around and across the island.
I am always amazed end joyful to find people who turn their passion in business and who also provide high quality services to others. Owning a business and offering a part of your soul to others, this I believe is the key to success for Vida Villas.
For all of you who love travelling, who enjoy new cultures, who like to try new food and make friends wherever you go, I salute you. Encouraging people to travel means encouraging them to widen their horizons, their perspectives, their understanding toward the world and the people around us. Travel makes us wiser, friendlier, smarter and more courageous, it turns us into kinder and more understanding human beings.
Traveling gives us strength, even if you can’t travel as much as you would if money was not a problem, travel as much as you can, for your mind and for your heart. Travel so that when you go back home you have stories to tell, memories to remember and refueled energy.
