The last few years have been a very long reminder of how important it is to have something to look forward to. At the end of each day, at the end of the working week, or hopefully at the end of a pandemic. Can be something as trivial as a cinnamon scroll from your favourite bakery. It might be a couple of weeks hiking around remote islands in Scotland.
We’ve started making plans again at Be Your Best. Plans for us, plans for you, and plans to bring travellers to meet our favourite guides in some amazing parts of the world. We miss the scenery. The fresh air. The little cabins in the middle of nowhere. Blue skies, fluffy clouds and even the occasional snow blizzard.
We hope you have a few things to look forward to in the future as well.
The pandemic is not over of course, but the remarkable new vaccines and medical treatments have finally given so many of us something to look forward to. Not everyone will decide the time is right to look towards travel plans. Some of us will need a little longer, some a lot. But many of us feel a little lighter just being able to contemplate an adventure far from home. We hope 2022 brings you new horizons, and we hope to share some with a lucky few companions.
