Would you choose a honeymoon not understanding anything about it, destination intended by somebody else and unknown? “Travel to Nowhere/Anywhere” seems to be a thing for a few wealthy Brits, who are registering for the service from a UK luxury travel planner, that needs a $1,500 preparation fee/$30,ooo per person minimum. We were flattered to be asked about it by one of our fave websites, Ozy.com.
While I love reading about this kind of thing in Afar magazine’s “Spin the Globe” attribute (they send a traveling writer someplace with no advance notice, and they must make do on the fly once they get there), I’m not sure when I would do it myself. To me, the trip is a collaboration, getting the dreams and wishes of customers and adding our travel knowledge to find the fit of destination, style and budget. The client goes someplace they’ve always dreamed of — such as A & C who wanted to encounter sunset in Santorini and did combined with Mykonos and Athens. Other times we will suggest of, and they jump at it; that S & L are likely to Belize.
As for me, I want to understand where I’m going before I journey, or how else will I know what to pack? Not to mention, anticipation is part of the fun.
