There’s a big difference between a holiday and an adventure, between taking time away from the world of meetings and business plans to relax and unwind on a beach somewhere or heading for a destination where you can venture right outside your comfort zone and experience an entire ecosystem unlike anywhere else on earth. In our ‘Diverse Earth’ article, we’ll be making 10 strong appeals to your spirit of adventure. 10 invitations to take a chance, set off for distant horizons and expand your mind.
We’ll be giving you a glimpse into some of the most precious, unspoiled (and in some cases dangerously threatened) corners of the earth. Timeless deserts where the whole idea of 9 to 5 seems like an entirely alien concept. Tropical rainforests where the laws of the jungle are governed by toucans and glass frogs, rather than CEOs and angel investors. And islands where you can look forward to unscheduled meetings with locals who provide important links to the very evolution of our species.
Want a new perspective on your business? You’ll be amazed at the difference a 10-meter Barrier Reef dive in the company of whales and dolphins can make to your outlook.
Or maybe you simply want to clear your mind. Having an uninterrupted view of the snow-white Arctic tundra has a way of helping you restart your thinking from a blank sheet.
And while we look to outer space in search of new horizons to satisfy our boundless curiosity, we shouldn't forget that there are plenty of amazing places here on earth ready to be hiked, dived, traversed and explored.
So take some time to consider the world’s ecosystems with us – but don’t take too long, because sadly these natural wonders of the world may not be here in their current pristine state forever.
"Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
