Are you getting started with holiday shopping and trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list?
Give the gift of Travel!
Travel experiences make us much happier than any material thing ever will, and those feelings of happiness last from the moment you start planning a trip until well after you return.
It doesn't have to be a two week long trip (although that would be amazing!), but even a long weekend getaway with your family or loved one will boost your spirits and give you something wonderful to look forward to. So stop buying things and buy experiences!!
Types of vacations you can gift this year:
A long weekend getaway with your significant other...
Sedona, AZ... the most stunning scenery awaits you in Sedona. The red rock formations are mesmerizing and the scenery changes throughout the day depending on the lighting. At night you will experience the most incredible clear sky filled with stars (it looks fake, like nothing I've ever seen). Sedona is rugged yet elegant and artsy. You will feel relaxed but energized at the same time by such natural beauty.
A warm Spring Break getaway...
Costa Rica...There are very few places in the world that offer such an incredible diversity of scenery, climate and vacation pleasures. This small country in Central America offers beautiful tropical beaches, the excitement of watching volcanoes, the thrill of deep sea Scuba diving, sports fishing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, zip lining, or the peaceful serenity of mountain resorts.
St. John, USVI... Not all Caribbean islands are created equal. St. John holds a special place in my heart from the first time I visited the island. Renting a villa perched high on one of St. John's beautiful cliffs offers unsurpassed views of the turquoise ocean, the sail boats, and the most incredible sunsets. The beaches of St. John back up to the Virgin Islands National Park, they are so pristine and without the crowds of resorts or cruise ship ports. Hiking and snorkeling are the main activities on this incredibly stunning island.
Portugal... This small country has wonderful attractions and beautiful old world charm. One of its greatest assets is its gorgeous coastline, and in particular, the southern region where an array of top-class beach resorts (once sleepy fishing villages) provide luxurious sea side accommodations. Portugal also has several wine regions to explore with the most well know being the Douro Valley, one of the top wine regions in the world. Enjoy some of the freshest seafood you will ever have and delight in one of Portugal's several Michelin star rated restaurants.
History, great food, stunning beaches and cobblestone villages make Portugal a fascinating European vacation destination.
I work with my clients on creating personalized travel itineraries while consulting on everything from destinations to excursions and logistics of the trip. Through my personal travel I seek unique activities including private guides and tours for exceptional experiences. More on Belkys
