As we look forward to 2018, we wanted to revisit some of our favorite moments that helped define Global Discovery Vacations in 2017.
From travel inspiration to big contest winners, here’s some of our favorite travel moments from the year!
Why Members Travel
Every week in our Member Monday features, we ask members why they think traveling is important. We all travel for different reasons, so what’s yours?
“I choose experiences over things! Traveling with our family builds positive memories and experiences together that we don’t really get at home with all the daily distractions, electronics, friends, jobs, etc. My kids will not remember what toys they got for Christmas, or how much they loved those super-expensive shoes, but they will remember hiking over the lava and how incredibly hot it was from just a few feet away!”
“Everyday life can take it’s toll on a person and relationships. So it’s important to travel so the soul gets a reboot, and so we can reconnect with our loved ones.”
“To me, traveling is important because we live in such a diverse world, it gives you the opportunity to see other locations and learn about other cultures which helps us understand the diverse world we live in.
“Traveling is such a good way to refresh and decompress from all the hard work you put in year after year with your job. For us as empty nesters now, it’s like a second honeymoon!”
