Itinerary Inspiration – Guide to Luxe International Events

March 24, 2022

While we share in the global heartbreak over the attacks in Ukraine, we also understand the many concerns and questions coming to us from clients who are hoping to make plans to enjoy the many wonderful international events and experiences taking place around the world in the coming months.

We recently went to two experiential travel experts, Authentic Explorations and travel curator Carlos Melia, to get a better sense of the sentiments of travelers, as well as the current state of travel today. Not only did we get reassurance that in most parts of the world, travel is “business as usual”, we also learned that the majority of travelers are especially motivated during these times to continue to travel as a way to support the many livelihoods dependent on tourism.

With that, our experts shared some amazing ideas for travel that incorporate some of the most fashionable events happening around the globe.
