En route to the travel ecosystem: allons-y!

 Pre-trip, during-trip and post-trip experiences are constantly shaped and reshaped depending on place, time and space, when we meet, when we travel and when we return back home. Throughout the entire journey experience, travel encounters are fully enriched with a variety of physical and virtual stimuli, some of which are discussed, lived and shared these…

 Set the scene! An interactive intersection crossed our itineraries from Athens to Brussels and Genova, only to make it happen… add Syros island as a backdrop and the discussion naturally unfolds. Clear and direct, in close contact with open horizons. An interview that goes beyond postcard-impressions, yet more destinations pinned on the map. Vassilis Karamitsanis, President…

 “Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything”.* Music and travel that world voyagers can really make them count. Our morning coffee in the South of Athens signalled the very beginning of this article, giving…

New “People” & the floor is yours

It’s certainly a big world out there and I enjoy imagining people with somewhere to go! Simple images of people with luggage waiting at a nearby station mesmerise me. Whenever I lift my head and see an airplane flying above, I feel that my dreams begin to fly. Just 2 years after landing on “your…

Hospitality is everwhere: let’s reacquaint ourselves

Check-in, check-out, take-off and landing, here and there, over and above… it is a big world out there. To live and experience destinations, you will never forget. Not because of their image, because of their identity. Addicted to image-related characteristics, we missed the identity link – time to reacquaint ourselves. Who we are, where we…

Travel around the world. Most of the times, meet and greet comes with a big smile. But when smile dominates serious talks with an experienced practitioner about travel and tourism, a logical assumption can be made. The career path implies a combination of talent and passion. This was also the case, directly confirmed when we…

Travelling is all about services, all about people. Hospitality also nests in its people. Hitherto, I have always liked the picture of people with somewhere to go and converted my personal viewpoint to the principal “raison d’être” beyond the conventional meaning of travel; the co-creation of sophisticated travel trails. It is this thought-to-travel, which currently…

 Instaclicks on your personal timeline go well beyond media, theme and any photo frame; it is all about people and their professionalism, moments and feelings, which turn the hourglass and, thus, provide time for many reflections. From previous poolside meetings and short encounters at the lobby to the continuity of communication. Because only a three-letter…

Go multi-travel-lingual: yet another take off!

It was about time! Almost 1 year after the successful launch of “the voyager voice”, its main virtual platform [www.thevoyagervoice.com] is steadily transformed into a truly international community blog site (after a transitional period of translation in English), reaching a new milestone in its global travel pathway, following the pattern of its social media networks…

 Ο χρόνος έχει σταματήσει κάπου εκεί στα παλιά με κάποιους ανθρώπους από το περιβάλλον σου. Τότε, που δεν είχαν ακόμα ασχοληθεί με τον τουρισμό. Μια καριέρα in the making, καθώς έχτιζαν σταδιακά, μέχρι να έρθει αυτή η επόμενη μέρα. Τότε που γεμάτοι εμπειρίες, πήραν την απόφαση να στελεχώσουν θέσεις ευθύνης σε τουριστικές επιχειρήσεις και οργανισμούς,…

Ναύπλιο #OMG! Από το StoryTelling στο StoryDoing

  Ξεδιπλώνουμε χάρτες προορισμών. Τοποθετούμε τις πινέζες και ξεκινάμε την ανακάλυψη. Από “destination super market” σε εκλεπτυσμένες ταξιδιωτικές προτάσεις, παρακολουθούμε όλα όσα έχουν να μας πουν. Κάπου είναι σίγουρα περισσότερα, αποκτούν ενδιαφέρον για μια συζήτηση-layover και πατάμε “save as…” στον χάρτη της ταξιδιωτικής μας αντίληψης. Τουριστικές επιχειρήσεις και οργανισμοί διαχείρισης και προώθησης προορισμών βάζουν τα…

Interactive global radio: πέρα από τα σύνορα χωρίς περιστροφές

 Άφιξη… και η βαλίτσα της επιστροφής φέρνει μέσα της όλες τις εμπειρίες και τα ακούσματα από όλα όσα τελικά (δεν) άφησες πίσω. Επιστροφή από Lombardia και η επίδραση στο ραδιόφωνο, στο σπίτι, στη δουλειά ψιθυρίζει “Radio Italia solo musica italiana, un’amica che ti tiene compagnia”. Προσγείωση από Paris-Charles de Gaulle με μελωδίες “Chante France: les plus…
