Since the advent of COVID, travel has become something to be feared or put on hold for one day in the distant future. However, with the introduction of the vaccine, travel has started to return, with many countries removing the need to self-isolate and reducing the amount of testing required.
Whilst restrictions remain, tourism must resume if only for the economic benefits that many communities actively rely upon. If this is not motivation enough, psychologists report that the anticipation of a holiday is almost as good as the holiday itself, which is a strong argument for why we should all be planning our next vacation, despite the current circumstances.
Although it is still difficult to predict how travel will be affected in the coming months, there is compelling evidence to suggest that we all need something to look forward to and there is certainly no need to put your future travel dreams on hold.
In 1519, Portuguese explorer, Ferdinand Magellan set sail from Spain with a fleet of five ships to discover a western sea route to the Spice Islands. His journey was daring and ambitious, taking almost three years to return to port. En route, he discovered the “Strait of Magellan” and became the first European to cross the Pacific Ocean. His explorations are historically significant and proved that the world was not only much larger than we had previously imagined but also that it could be circumnavigated by sea.
Magellan’s expedition inspired our own world Odyssey and in celebration of our 10-year anniversary, we have curated a journey that is a modern interpretation of this original voyage of discovery.
