Why do we travel? These days more and more people are visiting ever further destinations and most people when asked what they would do if they didn’t have to work, say travel. But to what purpose? Solely pleasure, to say they’ve ‘been there’ in the hope of a bit of status, or to challenge themselves to find out who they are inside?
Modern women are looking for a new way to travel. With the Intention to travel not only for new vistas but to also delve deep within to discover inner views, we can make amazing discoveries. Who we want to be in the world. What our purpose might be. What that past love had to teach us. What am I being asked to learn in this unwanted situation? For those who believe that intention and the power of attraction obviously don’t work because they’re still broke and struggling – this is because the intent is directed wrongly. You cannot go into business, marriage or any other interaction or situation with the intention of attracting greedily. The wealth comes as a by-product of the genuine intention. This applies to love and health and all our other human desires as well.
I started North West Nomad as a location independent business in 2008, when I saw a gap in the market for providing quality personal tours in the NW corner of Argentina on the border with Bolivia and Chile. It was real wild west country and I was on my own but the business developed over years and expanded. I then had to go through a process of rebranding and changed the name to Spirit of South America to reflect the demographic of my client. I had to totally rebuild the website as the old one was on a flash platform. I did it myself because I wanted to learn everything about WordPress, SEO and social media marketing – it’s a constant learning trajectory still and fascinating process but women entrepreneurs need to know how to maintain their site themselves and be up-to-date with this constantly changing new arena.
I had travelled with many single women – executives and those successful in their fields who wanted security and companionship and they all agreed that a Heroine Journey would have been perfect for their needs.
A Heroine Journey is not only about travel through some stimulating landscapes and cultures. The travellers are women like you – entrepreneurs, looking for location independence or freedom, or soul adventurers. Along the way we indulge in some special experiences – a private tango lesson and milonga night with guaranteed partners – It’s not often you get to dance all night with wonderful dancers whisking you around the pista, a visit to an Andes Shaman or a walk across the top of a million year old glacier creaking beneath you.
Aside from the thrills, there will be some deep inner work as your mind expands and distresses from being away – journaling and exercises to delve into your deep desires, coaching and brainstorming your next move, creating the action plan topped off with yoga or bodywork to stretch the muscles. You will connect with a group of like-minded gals who will form your support group long after the journey is done and you’ll return filled with self confidence, motivated with the tools to develop your dreams and ideas into action and filled with inner peace. Call it business school in the mountains.
The next Heroine Journey is PERU ON PURPOSE and travels through the highlights of that mystical Inca territory and includes a flight over the mystical Nazca Lines, a visit to the floating isles on Lake Titicaca, an overnight camp in Colca Canyon, deeper than the Grand Canyon and of course, a journey into the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu. Dates are October 16 -27 and we suggest you fly into Lima a day or so before to see this wonderful city with one of the Top 5 cuisines in the world and join us for the welcome dinner on the night of the 15th.
