“Travelling in the Company of those we love is Home in Motion”
So aptly quoted by Leigh Hunt, it makes us reflect on the formative years growing up and ever so often, trading the humdrum of everyday life for a family adventure to some exotic location - just the opportunity to ‘Get Away’ and reconnect with each other, to rekindle the level of social connectedness between the different generations was something to behold and appreciate.
Today, the concept has been given a new lease and FAMILY TRAVEL thankfully is evolving to encompass differentiated experiences that caters to all; from grandparents all the way down the generations through to the 6year old grandchild. It gives mum & dad the opportunity to disconnect from routine, explore unchartered territory with family in tow and a multitude of options to embrace adventure as it unfolds with zeal and a unified satisfaction.
The delight and appreciation from an African adventure; be it seeing wildlife up close, or meerkats bobbing in and out of their little burrows, to appreciating the undulating African landscapes below from an open-air balloon safari, or the wonder and excitement exuded by children on receiving their first ‘Little Ranger’ certificates - all this and so much more to absorb and digest. Africa really does offers it all!
Families can now create memorable moments across the generations and have much to talk about over dinner or during a quiet moment. The true reflections come from the realization that these often-overlooked moments are life’s real treasures, and family time away should not be taken for granted.
To us at Personal Collection, this is the benchmark of quality family time; which when reflecting on the quote above, gives great significance and truth to the words therein.
