“Live in the Sunshine. Swim in the Sea. Drink in the Wild Air.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
As humans, we cannot deny a psychological link between our exposure to sunlight and our overall happiness levels. With schools closed, our pace of life slowed down, and soon enjoying an extended period of leisure, summertime embraces us with its sweet warmth and languorous days at ease. This is a powerful season that ushers in a time for vitality and rest, joy and peace, creativity and freedom – all wonderful reasons to take full advantage of at exotic destinations! To kickstart your ideal escape and in preparation for the Solstice on the 21st June, we have gathered a few favourites that still have availability and are worth jumping on for the months ahead. Imagine sunkissed skin and a soulful time of rejuvenation…
