Now that travel is fortunately becoming easier and easier, we dare to cross national borders again. Carefully, however. The media mainly give the impression that travel is only possible within Europe and because of this people are still reluctant to settle on another continent. Unjustified, if it is up to ExperienceTravel. MASTERS presents three travel destinations outside Europe that are now waiting for your visit, according to CEO Harco van Uden.Text: Patrick Stoffer
Image: ExperienceTravelSelf, the CEO of ExperienceTravel, which provides exclusive tailor-made travel, has just returned from Kenya, "where I enjoyed with my family the 'great migration,' a migration in which thousands of wildebeest and zebra beasts leave the Tanzanian Serengeti in search of fresh grass and water in Kenya's Masai Mara. This quest is an annual phenomenon and is certainly not without danger for the protagonists. In particular, the crossing of the Mara River, where crocodiles lie in wait for the first wildebeest to cross to make their move, attracts a lot of attention every year from travelers who want to witness this in person. According to Harco, we can safely travel to other continents and enjoy a fantastic vacation. Especially for MASTERS he lists three beautiful destinations.Photo: Travel Harco van Uden, Kenya
