Adventure: Transformation and Consciousness...
a better way to travel
People are tired and disenchanted of traveling the same way over and over again, of feeling part of a flock of tourists saturating places which immediately lose their magic and charm and become so impersonal as any all-inclusive resort. The essence of doing adventure travel is transforming into a conscious traveler who engages with the places she visits and the people she meets along the way; who takes the time to study the culture and history of that destination, who listens, who respects the traditions, learns and treasures that which is different. A traveler who while traveling realizes he is an “accidental ambassador” of his own culture and aware of the economic and personal impact he has on the places he visits.
Adventure travel is an ethical-responsible tourism that seeks to protect the wellbeing of the communities and the environment which are, after all, its fundamental elements. The experiences travelers live are genuine, endearing and mark a before and after in their their lives. To transform the traveler and regenerate the destinations and the environment should be the goal of any effort related to tourism in Mexico and the world.
The speedy rhythm of our lives and the ease with which we have immediate access to information, is hampering our brains to generate one of its best products: DOPAMINE
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter or brain chemical commonly associated with the feeling of pleasure. Scientific research shows that the expectation and eagerness to be rewarded (with pleasure) triggers our brain to produce equal or even more dopamine, than the reward itself.
Therefore, our goal, is to generate gallons of Dopamina in your brains… when we seduce you with information and images of an experience you never dreamed of even in your craziest dreams, then tempting you to see yourself at that magical place and finally guiding you to make this trip come true.
The process, the planning, the emotion, the trip itself and finally the memories and anecdotes that will remain with you forever will make you addicted to travel with Dopamina.
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate.
We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
