“It’s not the destination where you end up but the mishaps and memories you create along the way”. – Penelope Riley

There couldn’t be truer words spoken at this time. Across the world, every single person has had their plans and routines disrupted by Covid-19.

We are all part of a defining point in history, experiencing our own ups and downs as we navigate ourselves through this lock-down period.

Whilst we can’t control the circumstances right now, we can offer each other much needed support and empathy to ensure we remain positive and resilient. Rather than thinking about the holiday memories we could have made over the next few months, we’d like to reflect on those we’ve already created, celebrating where we’ve been and cherishing the encounters we’ve had.

The stranger who became a life-long friend.

The encounter that left you feeling humbled.

The head-spinning views that stopped you in your tracks.

The proposals, the laughter, the shared special moments.

We would like to ask our Discover the World community; our staff, our clients and our partners to share their favourite travel tales for us all to enjoy. Whether it is a photo, a comment, a story, video or voice message, we’d love to hear from you.

Please submit your memories via email or messaging us on Facebook or Instagram. We would like to feature these travel tales on our email, social and blog channels over the coming weeks to encourage us all to appreciate and remember the amazing things we’ve experienced. 

Let’s continue to offer support, solace and strength in a time of uncertainty and share our memories from a lifetime of travel. They might not be what we had intended, but life isn’t only about places or plans, it’s also about you and the stories you have to tell.
