Travel is good for the Soul
Chronemics is the role of time in communication. It is the reason why we felt 2020 felt interminably long and yet went at warp speed, either way it has left us marked by a strange year. We have been cooped up for over a year. It’s time to get out the door!
Traveling is such a life enriching experience. Only after this past year can we truely appreciate how much traveling can renew the spirit. It also gives us a chance to slow down time, and smell the flowers – in a good way. It provides us an empty canvas for new experiences. New perspectives always leads us to new futures!

Castellammare del Golfo (Latin: Emporium Segestanorum or Emporium Aegestensium) lays at the foot of Mount Inici, and is a town and municipality in the Trapani Province of Sicily. The name can be translated as “Sea Fortress on the Gulf”, stemming from the medieval fortress in the harbor. The nearby body of water conversely takes its name from the town, and is known as Gulf of Castellammare. Even in October you will certainly enjoy beautiful and warm days.
