The ultimate luxury for many of us is travel. After all, who would say no to the luxe offerings on page 42 of this edition (they have all been added to my bucket list), ticking off a lifelong dream such as gorilla trekking (page 52) or getting away from it all to inhale a vastness that can only be found off the beaten track (page 48)?
I lean more towards the latter as I get older – is it an age thing that quieter, more meaningful travel overtakes the need for bright lights and city nights?
Our cover personality, Thebe Ikalafeng, takes travel a whole inspiring step further. He had a dream, set a goal and then achieved it. Visiting every country in Africa was as much a personal adventure for Thebe as it was part of a journey to understand his continent better, as well as to highlight all that Africa has to offer. An entire continent later, Thebe’s life, work and passion are now all aligned.
If you’re gripped with wanderlust, start that life list today – the weekend jaunt you keep promising or the ultimate experiential journey – there’s never a better time than now.
