Today, 27 September 2018, is World Tourism Day. It is a great time to celebrate those who work in the tourism industry and to celebrate the benefit tourism has for the economy. It creates jobs, it promotes development, and it invites people to experience different cultures and lives…and these are just a few of the many benefits.

There are a number of celebrations happening around the world with tourism boards and the trade celebrating the day in their own way. For us at CN&CO we love to travel and we are advocates for travel; you should take any chance you get to explore our amazing country, our inspiring continent, and the world. As someone once said (the author of this quote is unknown):“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” — Author Unknown.

Another great quote is: “It’s not the destination, but the glory of the ride” — Edward Monkton.

Beachside yoga at Club Med Bintan Island

A few members of our team have just returned from an incredible trip to Club Med Bintan Island where we swam, relaxed, read, snorkelled, danced, exercised, played golf, worked a little, and did so many more wonderful things. It is all part of our belief in the theories of positive psychology and the benefits of it.

We have a few partners who work in the travel and tourism industry and one such client is Club Med. So, if all this talk about travelling and World Tourism Day has you excited to plan a holiday we recommend you visit the Club Med blog for some travel inspo. Then, book a great all-inclusive sun or snow holiday for either solo or with family and friends.
