The Experience

 

 

The Experience

Love Your Journey offers women a range of experiences that nurture, nourish and rejuvenate

senses and soul.

Offering Creative Retreats, Shortbreak Getaways, Adventure Travel, Wellness and Rejuvenation ...

each piece is designed to speak to a womans heart.

Spending time in spaciousness allows an unfolding within.   Combined with elements of ancient culture, adventure and connection, you'll rest and rejuvenate with ease.  

This is the heartbeat of what we offer ... the opportunity to fall more in love ... with your Journey.

In the spaces of wilderness, flavours of culture, good company and the excitement of adventure ...  we find the freedom to "be" and to "become".

And that is a gift.

A-Tavola is an Italian expression for "come to the table".

 

And you are invited to come as you are ... 

 
 
 

I was raised in NZ, one of the worlds most beautiful countries.  It was a magical place to grow.  Divine.  

I was a shy little girl, but I had a determined spirit and my curiosity about the wider world

was always bubbling away underneath!   As soon as I could, I set off on my amazing adventure.   

Over the years I have discovered that life "experience" lights me up. 

This I love. 

And so I create Journeys that offer a sense of

  Relaxation       Friendship       Adventure       Luxury       Expansion

  and    a big dollop of  Serious Amazement lol!

I never imagined swimming in a jungle river in Belize, or walking through the Wilderness in Africa,  

dressing up for a photo shoot in Venice or praying under a waterfall in Bali.   

Nor swimming with whale sharks, or sitting in the sands of Uluru 

listening to dreamtime stories under the stars ...

 But I'm grateful these are some of the pages of my story.​ 

I didn't feel naturally inclined to do any of these things ... until I did them.

Saying yes is powerful.

​Every journey has made me more. 

Appreciative, expansive, free ... actually, more me. 

The world will speak to every piece of Your  heart too ... allowing more of YOU to unfold.

If you say yes.

If you'd like to Love Your Journey a little more 

I want you to know,  you're invited ...

  With every experience, you alone are painting your own canvas,

thought by thought, choice by choice.  " 

Oprah Winfrey

 "   

 

 There has never been a better time for women to 

enjoy self discovery and expansion.

Come for the "you time" and soak in beautiful natural

environments that allow your senses and soul to be

nourished, uplifted and inspired. 

And into the forest I go to lose my mind

and find my soul.

John Muir

Words cannot describe how the wilderness will speak to you. 

She'll write a personal message across your heart in a language only YOU understand.

A "Just Do It" experience.
