What Luxury Travel Means To Me

I feel like I’ve written this post in a thousand ways over the years. We’ve definitely learned what we love and what we absolutely don’t enjoy whilst travelling – so for the Travel Linkup this month, I thought I would attempt to express what luxury travel means to me.

Often it’s the small moments that I love to savour.

The rich smell of a freshly brewed coffee, complex and sinfully unctuous – preferably delivered to my bedside table, whilst my favourite tunes are playing. 

Leaving the windows opening to the pitter patter of rain, or opening the french doors to a breathtaking view in the afternoon sunshine.

Slipping into a beautifully scented spa pool, before jumping into the still, cool waters of a nearby pool.

Incredible experiences that change the way I see the world, ones that I never expected to have.

The taste of sun-ripened tomatoes fresh off the vine, accompanied by a glass of perfectly chilled wine.

Luxurious travel is a sweet afternoon nap between cool, crisp sheets, snatched between busy mornings and delicious evenings.

Castles.

Walking into a bakery with the heady scents of pastries made with love and warm from the oven.

The feel of road weary toes, slowly sinking into plush carpet pile.

The soft, clean clink of a wine glass on a cool bath edge, put down next to a captivating book.

What about you?
