Luxury Travel Destinations

“An experience is etched in our minds due to the value returned”

I look at the dollars in my wallet to determine where I am going next, what activity should be first on the list or at least moved up and if what I am hungry for is nearby. Should we go to the water or inland to explore waterfalls? Should we drive up a winding mountain road or ride the tram?

Sure a camera can capture scenes for future reflection but receiving value that was unanticipated etches a memory, there to recall with any conversation regarding the trip. Think back to your most remembered trips. What is the memory recalled? Why are you able to recall it?

Experiences are the main reasons we vacation. Why we choose to go to many of the destinations is so something new or unusual will occur to improve our moods. But many times we find certain costs prohibitive to an over-reaching experience.

Here is what I am speaking of; if you are going to any destination for one week, hoping to experience the lifestyle of the area, visit several sites of interest and enjoy the local foods. If the cost of the hotel/condo/resort accommodations is high, the chances of multiple experiences drops relative to these costs.

Instead the options will have to be listed, looked at for cost analysis and certain activities will have to be crossed out, saved for a return trip. To make these secondary choices once at the location adds disappointment, even subconsciously, detracting from the experience.

Luxury travel destinations are defined by the experiences of the trip. Luxury is defined by the traveler; it is not always the heightened monetary expenses because luxury comes in many packages. We as individuals, are allowed to define our lives in our own ways and I choose to define luxury travel based on the value returned.

If my memory is packed with unforgettable activities, scenes, experiences and the costs were low for the trip, there is no greater luxury. A memory has no price tag; it goes on and on and on allowing reliving of the experience and things to expand on should a return trip occur.

Getaway ideas will increase because I know now that when I am taking luxurious travel vacations, I will be getting more value experiences due to the reduced accommodations charges I have defining my trip as luxurious. There is value in every trip I take, how about yours?
