Our Point of Difference
The Road Less Travelled began with an idea to create a positive space for women to be their essential selves for a weekend or more. This opportunity allows women to chat with other women, share ideas and camaraderie in a fun and positive way. We have expanded from that idea to now provide small group trips to overseas locations as well as breakaways inside New Zealand.
When you take a tour with Anah, you take a 'journey' as she uses her positive energy to share her beliefs and adventures with a small group of women. Anah loves sharing her journeys in the hope that it will inspire others to go beyond their own comfort zones and become who they intrinsically are in a safe and fun environment with like minded women.
The Environment, Health and Community
We are in an age of social responsibility and businesses must now embrace a social conscience at many levels. We can no longer sit back on our laurels as we know this very earth is changing dramatically in front of us. Each day we are now reminded through many types of media, that we must not waste, recycle and be earth friendly.
Most of us now realise, that we have to start changing the old ways and habits in order to more towards a healthier environment, and by taking a trip with Anah, you can get the opportunity to discuss and learn more about our environment.
Fun adventures that allow for the spontaneous magical moments
Being of a nature that was often spontaneous, Anah has experienced different lands and cultures on a level that embraced the moments.
Travel experiences focus on the whole being, mind, body and spirit.
Being born of Maori and Scottish ancestry, Anah as a very small child, had a deep love for the natural beauty of her area and a close sense of being, tied intrinsically to the land. An intuitive nature encompassed her sense of self. Although all this came naturally as a child, it wasn’t until many years later that Anah realized how much of an impact this would have on her life.
Inspiration from The Road Less Travelled Logo
When first inspired some years ago, to develop out of the ordinary travel opportunities for women, it was the stories and experiences of others from all walks of life that I loved. These inspiring stories of everyday life gave a sense of history and contribution, a sense of place and a sense of being, both on a personal and collective level.
…… They also gave an affirmative life purpose…
For when one has purpose there is a connectedness that often spans generations.
This connectedness creates vision.
Long term vision is integral to future generations holistic well being, both for individuals, whanau / family, and as local and global communities .
When we recognise the contribution of others and those who came before, only then, as communities, can we move forward in positive and learned ways. As stories are woven intricately, a balance of life’s finely textured fibres hold our communities together with core values that honor spirit, acceptance, apology, respect and care for others and our environment.
With this in mind, the textures of an old worn Maori ‘kite’ or basket of knowledge still held together by the weavings of old hands felt as one with my inner spirit. It was what I wanted to share on my Road Less Travelled experiences. Often in subtle ways these everyday stories are woven today on these journeys. As each person takes away their own story to share with others, positive ripples go forth and together, positive change occurs at many different levels. As we recognise experience, contribution and age, learnings and wisdom become precious.
Old wise hands created a flax basket that would span the generations and the knowledge it contained, revered.
Go share your stories for all are unique.
