Today we’re talking about a segment of the travel industry that has even more potential as we begin to emerge from the travel lockdown: wellness travel. As you might expect more and more people are looking for connection, for purposeful travel, to focus on themselves and perhaps kickstart or recommit to healthy habits.Dawn Oliver, the founder of Well Xplored travel agency, and Christina Jelski, who covers hospitality (and, of course, hotels’ spa and wellness offerings) take on what wellness travel is (hint: it’s not just yoga and vegan cooking) and how big a role it is playing in travel overall.
In this episode we also talk about where people are traveling for wellness experiences, the popularity of the small-group retreat, Covid precautions and the importance of taking time to focus on what heals and motivates you.
