I read this passage in Viewpoint magazine yesterday afternoon and it has been in my mind since…
“A destination is never a place, but a way of seeing things. And if the issue is about anything, it is about ways of seeing and traveling through the world as it is, and as it is set to become, virtually, emotionally, physically, intellectually and spiritually. It is also a world defined by changes – recession, climate change, globalisation, sustainability and change by definitions.
Tourists are now travelers; travelers, explorers; and the once powerful business and leisure set are now called the Bleisure generation.
All is in transition, this issue of Viewpoint places these transitions in context. And in a way that puts glamour and imagination into the lost but soon-to-be rediscovered art of travel.”
