Statistical studies have revealed that at all times around 20% of the total population is travelling; however ‘hassle-free and peaceful journey for holidays’ i.e. travelling + stay + activities devoid of any anxieties and uncertainties is what we all desire. This concept of ‘peaceful journey’ gains greater importance when viewed along with the stresses that we have to endure in simply living our life. A growing number of people have given up destination hopping in favour of relaxed leisurely holidays in places where they gain balance and a feeling of well-being. Furthermore, there are Leisure destinations, wellness treatments and other activities known for bringing one closer to the ever so elusive ‘well-being’.www.travelshanti.com promotes Travel towards Leisure, Wellness and Shanti (Peace) resulting in your well-being.
