Are you a ‘good’ traveller?
The Huffington Post’s article entitled ’24 Signs You’re a Good Traveller’ induced a meditative state here at Columbia.
Is there such a thing as a ‘good’ traveller, we wondered?
And if someone doesn’t faithfully fulfil the stipulations supposed to make them a ‘good’ traveller, can a luxury resort –entrusted by the said traveller with their precious holiday time –not help to elevate one’s travel experience regardless of their predisposition to being ‘good’ at travelling?
Some food for thought for you:
A good traveller is at first described as being someone who can ‘go with the flow’, looking, even, on the bright side of things going wrong.
Thankfully, should this not come naturally to you, the Columbia family is always on hand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to ensure that we are here to help you contend with issues that arise along your path to holiday happiness.
A good traveller is also defined as being someone who learns a few words of the local language
.Being a linguist may be a fine art that must be meticulously practised, but at the very least, our staff members will always be happy to share with you the basics: you may hear them call ‘Kalimera!’ to you as they wish you a good morning, or ‘Efcharisto’ as they thank you for staying with us.
Should you wish to delve deeper into the intricacies of Greek, we hold dedicated language lessons as part of our sports and leisure programme.
And, finally, a good traveller is depicted as someone who is not averse to plans changing, divorcing themselves from a strict itinerary.
With our lavish, 80-metre long lagoon style pool, our award-winning Hebé Spa, our distinguished dining options–from the gourmet Italian restaurant Bacchus, and the traditional Apollo Taverna, to the quaint Ouzeri –and our plethora of leisure activities, time is on your side at Columbia: we give you the space to do what you want, when you want.
So-called good traveller or not, a peaceful travel experience may be –instead –understood as being prefaced by a fruitful dialogue between traveller and provider: we are, after all, committed to unfailingly delivering luxury moments; we are, after all, faithfully at your service.
