Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.
Transformative travel works as a catalyst to help individuals learn more about themselves and the world they live in, while promoting inner growth and wellbeing to attain a balanced and happy life.
The travel experiences we offer have been exclusively designed to focus on activities to stimulate and balance the connection between mind, body and soul. Why?
Recent advances in modern medicine have proven that there is a connection between how the mind and the body work together. Every time we have a thought, we set off a cascade of cellular reactions in our nervous system that influence all the molecules in our body. But this interconnection doesn’t stop at mind and body alone: we are also deeply connected to the environment in which we live.
Now more than ever the combination of mental, physical, and spiritual wellness is undeniably important. Mental health has finally gained worldwide attention due to a steep increase in mental issues affecting most of our modern societies.
For decades we’ve been told to focus on the physical factor of wellness: healthy eating, being fit, showing an attractive appearance. But as our daily lives become busy with work, responsibilities and the stress that comes from it, it gets harder and harder to achieve mental and spiritual wellness which is a key element to attain a balanced life. Health is no longer just the absence of disease or symptoms; it becomes a state of optimal wellbeing, where mind, body and soul are aligned.
The ultimate wellness is no longer a fit body, but the search for enhanced quality of life, personal growth, and balance between mind body and soul. Travel has often been considered a way to escape from daily life’s problems. But what if it could be an opportunity for growth and personal development to make one’s life better?
It’s not a coincidence that when we travel we are in a state of happy flow, and we tend to be more receptive to learning and experiencing new things. When we leave our everyday environment, with all the distractions and the habits that come with it, we become more open to new situations that have the potential to inspire transformation within ourselves. We are free to explore old passions, new interests, reconnect with our life’s priorities, and change our perspective.
Wellbeing comes from within, therefore the more we engage in activities that make us happy, the more our mind and body benefit from it and our life will mirror our inner balance as a result.
Our curated experiences have been accurately designed to promote wellbeing and personal growth while immersed in stunning locations. Luxury boutique hotels, healthy cuisine, and activities to awaken the senses and connect with local communities are some of the aspects aimed at discerning customers looking for more than just a holiday abroad.
Below are some of the elements included in our experiences to help align mind, body and soul:
We are not for everyone.
Our journeys are for those adults aged 30-50 who know there’s more to life than a 9-5 job, for awe seekers who want to explore themselves and the world around them.
We are for those chasing spark in their lives, for those wanting to grow and evolve, for those willing to follow their dreams and passions. Or simply for those who feel the time has come to get out of their comfort zone.
We are for those who are ready to live, explore and evolve.
We won’t take you to a temple to snap a few pictures and listen to data you can easily find on the internet. We believe in a different way of touring this world. We want you to explore it, from within yourself.
We believe that wellbeing comes from within when mind, body and soul are in balance. Therefore the more you connect these 3 elements and engage in activities that stimulate mind, body and soul, the more you will benefit from it.
We encourage you to dive deep into cultures, to meet and talk to locals, to understand their culture and their lives firsthand. All of our programs include activities or Q&A sessions with locals.
We prompt you to explore your inner world, your soul’s dreams and passions.
Whether it’s photography, cooking, meditating, writing or more, our activities are designed to awaken your creative side and bring out inner talents, to awaken that part of you that your everyday life may have made dormant.
Ultimately, we want to help you discover a new spark for life in beautiful locations worldwide.
The founder and director of A Wonderful Planet has 19 years experience in the travel and hospitality industry, gained with international luxury travel companies. We know this industry inside-out.
We believe there is nothing wrong with spoiling ourselves with a bit of luxury in life. From comfy beds at luxurious hotels to spa treatments and healthy meals, we want you to feel special. Because you are.
We don’t support any companies engaging in animal’s labour, ivory sales or other activity aimed at harming animals. You won’t ride abused elephants nor take selfies with drugged tigers with us.
Instead, you could spend a night watching and feeding rescued elephants from the comfort of your hotel’s bedroom as you watch them roaming free in their own natural habitat and falling asleep at your doorstep. That’s the kind of encounter we promote with these majestic, gentle creatures.
Whether you join our small exclusive groups or choose to travel privately, you will find a journey that will change your perspective about yourself, your life and the planet you live in. Click below to start:
