Travel with pleasure all over the world

What is traveling with pleasure actually? Good question! We ourselves have been traveling the world under this motto for years and at this point we would like to introduce you to what we mean by it. For us, pleasure traveling means more than just culinary travel, although of course good food, a pleasant restaurant and a nice ambience are part of it. Also Wine tourism is one of them. Above all, however, time and leisure are important factors, so heard Slow Travel also in addition. To our Slow Travel Traveling with pleasure is so much more important. In our Travel blog for connoisseurs we will introduce you to the individual aspects. You will also find a selection there Enjoy travel destinations.

 

 

What is traveling with pleasure?

First and foremost, traveling with pleasure means for us that we feel comfortable on our travels. travel Bloggers Colleagues define it that way. All around! A whole series of factors affect our personal well-being, some of which we can control ourselves, some of which are externally controlled. On our trips, we make sure that we choose them in such a way that they turn our trips into real feel-good experiences. We attach particular importance to the following points:

 

Delicious food

Good food and culinary experiences

Of course, food plays a role in our way of traveling. It must be good and it must also bring us closer to the regional cuisine of our destinations. For that we like to go to starred restaurants as we eat at a kiosk on the street - it is crucial that the food tastes good. We especially like to take the time for culinary experiences that bring us closer to the specialties of the region.

The skill guided tours through our destinations be. But there are more ways in which we can find out more about the cuisine of our travel destination. We have already had very interesting experiences. In Sweden I learned how to make Polkagrisar - Swedish candy canes - self-made. In Salzburg we have cooked with a star chef, At an oystercatcher in Canada we have the Crustaceans fresh from the sea tried. And in New Brunswick we learned how to eat a lobster properly, You can find tips for culinary experiences all over the world in the Podcast The Dish from Meg Williams (with great tips in English).

A look behind the scenes of the producers

We like to look over the shoulder of the producers on our travels. On the one hand, this gives us the opportunity to learn more about the specialties of the region. At the same time, it has the side effect that we get into conversation with the local people in this way. We have become aware of how many ways there are for this since we have reported about it on our blog.

That's how I learned in Dublin, How to pour a Guinness properly, In Newfoundland we have the fruit wineI got to know them from fruit that I had never heard of until our visit. And in Volkach in Franconia we were at the Opening of the vintage there.

Culinary trips

A very large part of traveling with pleasure are culinary trips. These have now become a very popular form of travel among millennials. It is even said of their children - Generation Z - that they will place even more emphasis on food and drink experiences on their travels. No wonder! After all, they come from the generation that made food travel an important form of travel. It is interesting that the emphasis is not only on good food and cool drinks. It is particularly important for the younger generation of travelers that local and authentic experiences go hand in hand. Exactly what the world needs right now. Sustainable approach to travel. Because this form of travel demands one thing. Time to deal with what you are experiencing on site. No turning off highlights. But individual immersion in the local lifestyle.

Slow Travel - slowly explore the world

We are not around-the-world travelers who want to get to know the earth in a year. On the contrary, we love to concentrate on one region and discover the people, their way of life, the beauties of nature and the peculiarities of the regional culture. That doesn't mean we're limiting it to one continent. Or just to Foot, with the Car or the Houseboat on the way are. Whether we Cities or the Nature touring. No!

Instead, we like to limit ourselves to an area that we explore more closely. We are looking for contacts to natives - for example, in the already described experiences or at Activities that demand our creativity - where we talk to each other and learn about life on the ground. As far as the means of transport are concerned, we are open to anything, as long as it does not require any sporting efforts. We've never been adrenaline junkies, and I've never been a sports gun all my life. We care about intense experiences on our travels.

Nature experiences, cultural and city trips

Regions and cities that appeal to the senses promise enjoyment. Landscapes whose beauty overwhelms us. Museums whose exhibitions inspire us. Cultural events that move us. Cities that take our breath away - these are all travel destinations that promise enjoyment. Toronto with its many ethnic groups is a must for us, as we can go there on the hunt for delicacies from all over the world. Traveling with pleasure in cities is at the same time a tour through the kitchens of the ethnic groups who live there.

What is travel with pleasure? That includes wellness

For all-round well-being for us wellness belongs to it. We do not need a spa hotel every day. But after a long journey, a hike or a walk through the city, we appreciate a wellness experience. That is one of the reasons why we love Sweden travel so much. There, wellness is part of everyday life. I like to remember our stay in the Spa by Hooks Herrgard. There we looked from the pool of the house directly on the lake. What could be better than pampering yourself?

Cozy hotels for a delightful evening

During the day we are almost always on our travels. On sightseeing, city tours, on the way or in the kitchens of foreign cooks. All the more we know in the evening to appreciate a cozy room. There we can stretch all fours and let the experiences of the day pass again. It does not always have to be a four- or five-star hotel. Often we enjoy stays in accommodations even more, which offer a magnificent view - such as Hotel Grafenast with its view of the Inn Valley - or a cozy and well equipped Apartment that offers privacy, Sometimes we feel more comfortable in such accommodations than in luxury hotels with over-skilled staff.

What is travel with pleasure? We look for places on our travels that awaken well-being, you have to give us enjoyable experiences. This is how you could briefly summarize what is important to us on our travels.

      The way of traveling does not have much to do with age, I think. I have never been a backpacker but have traveled a lot all my life :). I would be pleased, if you like some of our enjoyment travel destinations.
