From something as simple as pitching a tent next to a river, to the more luxurious and indulgent health retreats, we're going to take a look at where people go to recharge their batteries and reboot their minds.
I love the term reboot - it has worked on every technical device I've ever operated. It's the only way I know how to fix any technological instrument. Simply turn it off - wait a bit - then turn it back on. Whammo! Your gismo or gadget is working again!
So when your mind goes a bit haywire or experiences a bit of a glitch, a reboot will probably do you wonders. Turn that thing off and leave it a while.
Now, not everyone's idea of winding down is the same. While some might love the thought of dropping a line in the water on the banks of a river, waiting patiently for a fish to come along - the same scenario might send the next person into a lather of sweat (I don't want to touch the stinky bait, please don't let me catch a fish, I'm terrified that slimy flippy thing on the end of the hook). Others may love the though of a silent yoga retreat, which we know others would be completely horrified by. It's just a matter of finding what suits you and allows you to relax your mind.
So at Destination Happiness we are selflessly going to sample as many of these getaways as possible. Given that it's likely that our hubbies won't let us leave the family behind and go on one long rolling resort sampling mission, we will be also be drawing on the experiences of other like minded travellers.
Get your suitcase ready travellers, you know our destination...
