We spend so much time moving at the speed of light; always dreaming about the next month, the next year, the next adventure. But sometimes we’re forced to slow down and adopt an attitude of gratitude; to reminisce, share and inspire.
You’re already well aware of how incredibly kind, hard-working, inspiring and resilient our beloved industry is. We laugh during the good times and pull together in times of crisis to lift each other up.
By sharing memories, lessons, and experiences with those around you, each and every one of you is capable of creating moments of magic, growth, and refection.
Use this time to recalibrate and get ready, because we will travel again, and when we do, it will be better than ever.
So you have #togetherintravel, now let us introduce you to #ThankstoTravel, brought to you from across the world, in the UK.
How it started
The aim of the campaign is simple… show your appreciation for travel and support the industry by reminiscing and sharing some of your most special travel memories.
Join in and brighten someone’s day by sharing a little positivity. Simply use the #ThanksToTravel, then tag 3 friends to pass the message on.
Your #ThankstoTravel shares
Surfing socials with this hashtag will certainly make your soul smile. Here are a few of the wonderful words and images that I have come across so far…
I adore this movement, and feel so inspired reading your stories, so I thought I’d give it a crack myself…
Thanks to travel, I have gazed at the sun, stars, and moon in 34 different lands, each offering something completely unique.
I’ve been 2200m on top of the world, and 30m beneath the waves. I’ve looked into the eyes of a wild elephant and learned how to swim like a mermaid, on a single breath. I’ve screamed in the back of a bobsled, jumping out of a plane, rafting down a waterfall and down a mountain trying to gain control of my skis! I’ve danced at a strange festival I didn’t know existed in Laos, enjoyed lunch at a sweet Sri Lankan family’s home and been taught how to make jewellery in a workshop in the Cook Islands.
Thanks to travel, my eyes are wide open to everything around me. They’ve captured images of pristine beaches, tropical waterfalls, bustling markets, natural wonders, mystic cities, and uninhabited deserts.
Thanks to travel, my mind is wide open. I’ve become friends with people I’d never have ‘normally’ met and I’ve learned what truly matters to each and every one of them. I’ve seen what life could be like and how unfair it is for some.
Thanks to travel, I’ve experienced five-star luxury and one-star living. I have cried; with happiness, love, and despair. My experiences have allowed me to feel every emotion and I am so grateful for that. I’ve spent days laughing until my face literally ached and sleepless nights, chatting with best friends, that I had only just met.
Thanks to travel I have grown; incorporating beliefs and practices that I resonate with; inspired by the incredible people I’ve crossed paths with during my journey.
Thanks to travel, I have realised that one single person can, in fact, make a positive difference on the planet, and I have taken the steps to become more conscious of my work, actions and wandering footprints.
Thanks to travel, I am becoming the woman I have always wanted to be.
Now I nominate… YOU!
All you need to do is reminisce, write from the heart and share your story on socials using the #ThankstoTravel and #togetherintravel hashtags.
We can’t wait to read them.
