Madeleine the travelista’s favourite travel quotes

Are you doing any travels for spring?  Or, are you making travels plans for later in the year?  Do you have restless feet or an incurable desire for adventures?

We love travel because it exposes us to new ideas, new cultures, and new people ….

We hope to inspire a sense of belonging to this place that you are going to or have just landed in ….

To get your heart to beat a little bit of London or Paris or Tokyo or Hong Kong or wherever you may be even if you are making only a short trip, even if you are travelling for work  …

How much fun it is to see things with fresh eyes

We do ask you to bring with you one thing that you must not leave out of your baggage and that is empathy
