In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Travelling moments are based on the precious moments that link your senses to your memories. These moments are personal, but they can be shared. There may be a yellow that can take you straight back to your grandmother’s kitchen and the giant flowers on her curtains. The smell of an orange might take you through time to your first trip to Florida and how surprised you were at the feel of sand between your toes. The sound of ice cracking in a glass of tea could put you instantly back on long skis, listening to the sound of pine trees cracking in the frozen wind.
Through Zhestia you will have new travelling moments, from the world’s most exquisite destinations. Memories of Morocco, India, and Bhutan that you’ll have for a lifetime…and when one day you happen to smell eucalyptus, the scent will take you back to a moment in a hammam that was all your own.
But I come from no country, from no city, no tribe. I am the son of the road, my country is the caravan, my life the most unexpected of voyages.
~Amin Maalouf, Leo Africanus
