Thrifty or adventurous? How internet has made travel easy
From Couch-surfing across Europe to Ubering across Madrid, the same options utilised by avid backpackers and "hippie" travel enthusiasts has now been put at the fingertips of every man, woman and child with a smartphone. So, does that mean we're all on our feet and heading towards the nearest airport? No? Why not? Surely, the envious stares endured 10 years ago by the few individuals who could afford the time and money to head-off on a 'foreign adventure' stemmed from a deep desire of the rest to experience the mythical "abroad"?
Unsurprisingly, the answer to the above question is 'no'. Much like the availability of the Garageband Application on a MacBook has not seen the instant rise of 30 new versions of The Beatles, a mere lack of access was never the sole cause for the masses to avoid spending their hard-earned money on travel, though it was a real contributing factor. Most people simply aren't aware that the experiences gained from travel enrich the soul in a way that mere possessions simply cannot.
Interacting with cultures, observing different lifestyles, tasting different cuisines and experiencing new activities abundantly create a form of wealth that can never be erased -memories.
Today, we ALL have options when it comes to travel. We can either choose to be thrifty and adventurous, and experiment with various applications and information provided by the internet. Or we can skip straight ahead to creating memories and work with those that have already completed the experimentation stage and have formulated a successful strategy in facilitating the creation of memories, at least for a handpicked selection of destinations. Either way, the real luxury is in having the choice.
To create such an experience with everlasting memories, at a price which properly befits this value, which you can revisit again and again, connect with us at Insignis Getaways.
