Editor’s Welcome                                                                February 2014   

By now we have all stepped fully into 2014 and the word is - this is going to be a great year for wellness and wellness travel! I'm seeing new innovative designs and programs and I'm hearing the excitement in people's voices when they speak about their dreams and aspirations for a better world, and a more fulfilling and enriching life. Oh the possibilities! I hope when you wake up each morning, you can't wait to throw the covers off, start your day, dream your dreams and create your own special magic. 

Wishing you a Happy, Joyful & Healthy Month!
Travel Happy. Travel Well.
