Remedy to Vacation and Anxiety

Welcome home!

that special something you need on vacation

Have you ever felt super excited to go on vacation and yet, anxious at the same time? We have good news for you! We will help you get to the root of the issue so you can go confident on your long deserved vacation leaving behind any anxiety.  

Why do I feel anxious right before my vacation

First of all, you are not the only one! Many people feel this anxiety before leaving for vacation. This is even truer for those people who tend to be in control of everything happening around them. Going on vacation is something absolutely beautiful because of the new places you will see, the people you will meet, the wonderful experiences just waiting for you to happen, the relax and the fun. 

All this is good stuff but it also means you have to explore the unknown and that is exactly why some people start to stress out. 

The trick? Familiarize with your itinerary before you leave, this will help you a great deal. Hard to believe? Let’s do a quick and simple experiment: picture yourself in a pitch dark room trying to find the door or the light switch…you will be most likely moving very slowly with your hands straight in front of you to feel any obstacles that might be in your way and afraid to trip over something. 

You get the idea right?

Now, picture the same situation but this dark room is your bedroom, you will be absolutely fine because here even in the darkness of the night, because it is a very familiar place and you know exactly where the door or the light switch is so you have nothing to fear.

The same concept can be applied for your vacation anxiety, the more familiar you are with the itinerary, the less stressed you will be.

Agriturismo Serafina

What else can you do to enjoy your vacation?

Easy! You need to carefully select and trust the company planning your vacation. A company like BeeYond Travel falls into the “boutique” Tour Operator category so that means we have chosen to work with fewer clients but service them completely from start to end. We have also chosen to only specialize in few selected regions of Italy: Puglia and Sicily so we can really focus on these areas.

What does this all mean? It means that we are able to add the personal element often missed and so important for you. It means we personally know every villa, every supplier and this allow us to better match your needs. 

In addition, we have chosen to only work with those suppliers who share our same vision because they truly are an extension of our Team.

Real people, real stories

An example is our latest addition to the Villas/Accommodations portfolio: Agriturismo Serafina in Otranto. We have personally known the family behind this oasis of paradise in one of the most idyllic area all over Italy and in the world. Although they have this incredible place, their accommodations are geared to a clientele different from our typical Traveller so we could not work together. 

Until now!!!

All this changed when they decided to build the first and only apartment which matches our Travellers needs. We could not be happier to add this apartment to our inventory because the apartment is only the beginning of your incredible vacation. Upon check-in, you will immediately feel “at home” and with “Family”; everything will feel right and now the circle is closed…you can “let go”, because there is nothing else that can stop you from having an amazing vacation. When you come back, you will be thanking us for connecting you with such amazing people and the out-of-this-world homemade pastries prepared directly by Gabriella daily.

Fashionably Puglia

unquestionably breathtaking

When we travelled for the first time to Otranto, we were immediately captured by the stunning beauty of the quaint little town which ranks year after year as one of the most beautiful Italian hamlets.

Salento - land of the sun, the sea and the wind

We were puzzled! We could not understand why Italians would want to travel anywhere else in the world when they had so much beauty, rich art, amazing architecture, exceptional food, craftsmanship and traditions dating back centuries. Italians had all this and much more in their own backyard but still, vacation to them had to be a far away place. We felt it right away… Puglia, was a place our clients would fall in love with and so we decided to start our incredible adventure in Lecce. The same city Dior picked for its collection: Cruise 2021.

We want to share this moment with you because it is a very powerful statement of this luxurious region and yet so simple, just like some of the dresses Dior has presented to the whole world from Lecce, from the Florence of the south. Dresses so simple and yet of a disarming beauty! It is a reflection of this region and we cannot wait for everyone to travel again freely and be able to witness such beauty.

For now, seat back and relax with this amazing collection by Dior, let the lights of the luminarie lights (the typical lights so popular in Puglia) mesmerize and the sound of the taranta (the popular dance) activate every single neuron because Puglia is much more than a vacation!

an emotion to be experienced slowly

How many of you have ever tried to prepare a recipe seen on TV? How many, during this social distancing times, have followed video lessons with starred chefs who explain how to prepare a dish that you could only taste at the restaurant?

Let's face it, everyone, or almost everyone, has tried these experiences.

Many people nowadays follow online recipes considering that staying at home, is important to overcome this difficult moment. We know how much you enjoy delicious meals while you are on vacation so, we want to remind you that in Puglia preparing a recipe is a ritual, a sort of cathartic moment in which you go from everyday frenzy, to the therapeutic slowness of family moments.

Why not live this moment at least once in your life?

The online experiences to which we are now forced, sooner or later, fortunately, will end and we will be able to return to live true emotions, made of smiles and human contacts.

This is why we at Beeyond Travel have come up with this therapeutic experience

An experience for the palate and the mind, in an exceptional location, just outside the walls of Lecce’s historic center. Learning how to eat well is not only a must for our health, it is also living a unique moment, which you will remember for a long, long time.

So, ready to experience the Apulian cuisine?

Apulian cuisine is now considered one of the best in the world. Be careful though, we are not talking about a simple meal, we are talking about a real dining experience. We are talking about a dream to live with your travel companions. There is a subtle difference between a holiday and a dream; this subtle difference lies in the importance we give to the emotions that dream is able to awake.

What is the secret ingredient of Slow Dining in Puglia?

The secret ingredient is the Time we dedicate to this dream…lots of time. The secret ingredient is to live everything slowly, forgetting the ticking clock. Salento is the ideal place to experience this pleasant slowness and take the time to truly enjoy farm to table cuisine.

a special time for myself

There is a moment in everyone’s life when we realize we want to be special. We try to be special for others, special for the boss who is too busy to recognizes the work done, special for the friend whose lifestyle is too hectic to pick up the phone to say “hello”! Special and that’s it.

Let's talk about "healthy selfishness"

Yet in all this frenzy, few times we remember how important it is to be special first of all for ourselves. We are often too busy to devote time to ourselves. We are always ready to hear and see what people around us have to say and do, but what about us? So, at least once a year, let’s make time for a little healthy selfishness, the one that makes us feel masters of ourselves and of our own decisions.

When should I make time for myself?

When? Well, in our opinion, the ideal moment for Beeyond Travel is when organizing vacations.
The vacation is something personal, it is a reward moment meant to relax after the hustle-and-bustle of the past year, and a moment to recharge for the year ahead. It is the only occasion we can truly be special. So why settle for it? It is your right to think big at least once a year, feel pampered and expect the best. Like a tailor-made vacation already bookable…just pick your date!

Getting help to pamper myself

BeeYond Travel is a boutique Tour Operator focused on the regions of Puglia and Sicily and the concept of slow tourism. Listening to our Travelers is key to us and it helps big when we develop our tours. The majority of our tours are tailor made so we have taken the most popular locations and experiences and created a new tour meant to truly pamper you.

How do I get pampered on vacation

To enjoy this vacation, you have to stop the usual rhythms and embrace the “slowness”.
Waking up slowly in the morning in a renowned location, getting out of bed slowly and slowly having breakfast with a cup of coffee and a slice of homemade cake, heading to beach locations and slowly enjoying the day, until sunset, when before dinner, slowly, you will gather around a table and savor the good Apulian cuisine.

Where should I go to get pampered

Puglia is the ideal destination to experience this pleasant slowness. Puglia is the land of slow tourism, of the paths, of the villages to be walked with an ice cream in your hand, of cooking lessons to prepare lunch to be enjoyed together. And here in Puglia lunches last for hours and hours, hours spent chatting, sipping a nice glass of wine, telling stories that maybe we’ll forget after ten minutes (because of the excellent wine produced in Puglia), but that’s okay.

The perfect tour to get pampered

You told us this is your idea of feeling special and this is what we want for you. Give yourself the opportunity to feel special for yourself and check out our newest tour designed with you in mind:
