What if you are really not crazy

Date: September 27, 2018 | By: bigfive | Category: Travel Blog

Whether or not you believe in the concept of destiny, it certainly seems there are times in life when we are directed, overtly or subtly, to go someplace or be in some location. We may not always even understand why at the time. Where we travel is often dictated by our work, our passions, our family requirements or other factors.

But sometimes, just sometimes, it feels like chance, kismet, whimsy or some magical combination leads us to a life-enhancing experience in an unexpected place where extraordinary people and sights are put before us. Our friends may say, “Are you crazy?” “It’s not safe.” “Why would you go there?”

But frequently those are the times that leave us with indelible memories. I remember in detail standing on the Serengeti Plains at sunrise as I watched four hyenas take down a young gazelle. I turned away in the final moments to see a fly on the shoulder of my friend standing next to me. I could see the lines in its wings, I could feel the sun on my back and several lanky giraffes startled me as they ran past followed by slower moving antelope and zebra. All my senses were fully engaged in that moment.

Travel is about so much more than just going someplace. Even the simplest vacation to a new place can lead us to discoveries in ourselves, to new connections and to a broader understanding of our place in the world.

Since 1973, we at Big Five have expected no less of ourselves than to make it possible for our travelers to have these moments. To do this, we are constantly creating new tools and avenues to help you decide what is next for you.
