Secret Travels, travel secrets?

Well not all “high end” travel is about luxury. In so many blog posts there are stories of how fanciful the lounges are and how the dining blows you off your feet. But sometimes high end travel is about privacy and discreteness.

This article to us suggests that if you speedy immigration clearance, solitude and/or true exclusivity is what you are after, then opt for a VIP suite experience.

Yeah, the lounges may not be a smorgasbord of fine dining and there might not be showers with Bvlgari shampoo. But the truly super rich (if they don’t have a plane to call their own), would probably be in such private suites and whisked aboard planes without the need to interact with the plebian folks at the airport terminal.

You see, for these folks the transportation part of the journey is probably not the most exciting for them – as it may be for us. While we relish and plan in advance on getting to the airport on time, perhaps crashing in the use of a lounge with all that free food, drinks and wifi etc, these folks simply want to get it over with. If teleporation exists you can bet these folks would be first in line…ok after extensive safety tests…

For some of us, it is indeed the destination that is more important than the journey. Some people sleep it through, others become insomniac. Unless you are in an elite class of travel, you are more than likely to enjoy the transportation part of the journey less..

Is your destination more important than the journey?

    1. Hmmm…we think the journey even for travel can be important. For example, a drive you had in the garden route. The drive journey was definitely just as great at the final destination right?

  1. Both the journey and destination is important to me. I enjoy seeing each different airport and the way a country markets itself; I like trying different foods/ shopping experiences. And there is always a good book/blogs to read if one gets bored whilst waiting til boarding the plane. It is also nice to have the luxury of sitting back and watching a series or movies, on the flight; something there is little time for back home. One journey took me via Japan and I had a short stopover there. Japan wasn’t really my focus, but that journey allowed me to discover Japan. I found it to be a fascinating place and without that journey, it would not have even been on my radar. Both journey and destination are important.

  2. I found that usually journey is more important than the destination itself. It made the trips more memorable and beautiful to remember. Not once, at the end, I changed my destination to somewhere else or stay at one place longer than I planed since I found that the place was too comfy to be left. Well, that’s just a personal opinion 🙂
