Travel Season: Beyond the packed bags and destinations


Wow, it is July! The special month marks the beginning of a new quarter, where dreams might have been reawakened, ambitions are renewed, and individuals build a revived zeal to go for their goals and fulfil them. This is what new beginnings birth – the desire to be and do more.

While the month presents an opportunity to realign goals and vision, it is also that season when the desire to break free from daily routines and take on the new cloak of adventure as we look to stir our hearts and minds to a world without limitations. It is that time to pack those bags, leave the everyday hustle and bustle behind, and embark on a well-deserved summer break. After all, what better way to celebrate all the hard work you’ve put into the first half of the year than by exploring new horizons?

One may wonder why this month seems the perfect time to set forth on an adventure. Well, it’s because it is perceived to be the season of reflection and rejuvenation, where individuals can pause, take a deep breath, revel in their accomplishments, and be stirred to do and be more.

Every new month or quarter is like a blank canvas eagerly waiting to be painted with brush strokes of our memories and dreams, and with the heralding of the perfect travel season, this might just be that awaited chance to step out of the mundane and into the extraordinary—a time to let loose, unwind, and let the spirit of wanderlust take the reins. Perhaps through exploring a vibrant city, immersing yourself in its culture and ways of life, or indulging in mouthwatering delicacies, the second half of the year might be that time to shine!

So why limit yourselves to familiar places when there’s a whole wide world out there waiting to be discovered? From the bustling streets of Lagos to the enchanting ruins of Machu Picchu, this travel season is indeed a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to broaden your horizons and immerse yourself in new cultures, sights, and flavours. Let’s face it; life is too short for basics, regulars, routine, monotony, or whatever words you choose from the lexicon to describe it.

Undoubtedly, this is the season to pack up your bags, create a list of to-dos, pick the perfect destination, and take advantage of venturing into a new world of adventure. But wait, there’s more! This isn’t just about venturing into the unknown — It’s a chance for redemption, a season of second chances. Remember that long-lost friend you’ve been meaning to reconnect with? Or that special someone you’ve been pining for but never found the time?

This is the perfect season to make amends for those broken bonds and lost moments. It is a time to reconnect with precious loved ones or relationships that got rusty due to the lack of time, the cruel grasp of distance, selfish desires, or the never-ending work demands. Ensure to build cherished moments, where every laughter-infused moment becomes a stitch mending the tears, and every heartfelt embrace becomes the knot that ties those bonds back together.
