It has been a big year for the Memorable Destination team.
After starting with a humble travel blog 25 years ago, we gradually achieved our dream of providing travellers with a free resource to objectively rate the ‘Age-Friendliness’ of travel products and hotels.
Along the way, we sometimes wondered whether our belief that travel and hospitality services should cater for all ages was too idealistic.
But, we kept going and early in 2018, we again moved with the times to provide more visual content by integrating a suite of galleries on Instagram.
First came @memorable_destination, which focused on the photographic and artistic side of our travel advice – including growing visual trends like HDR photography and quality editing.
This was soon complemented by @memorable_travels and @memorable_hotels, which also provide more information for travellers in easily digested photographic and video format.
And, it’s now our pleasure to announce that, from January 7, these will be further complemented by an Australian photographic hub on Instagram.
Part of the prestigious and influential ‘Worldwide Community’ of international hubs, @ww_australia will showcase Australia and its artists.
Join us by Following @ww_australia. If you are not part of the billion Mor more people using Instagram, we’re sure you will be very soon.
As the launch is just in time for the festive season – we decided to celebrate by giving you a look at some of our collection of Christmas Tree decorations, gathered around the world during our travels over a quarter of a century.
We realise that it’s a bit ‘out of left field’, but here are some of our favourites:
Decoration from Denmark
This angelic decoration has long held pride of place on our family tree. It is gorgeous.
Decoration from Austria
Classy and elegant: what else would you expect from the Austrian Alps.
Decoration from Barcelona
Bold and bright: just like Catalonia and its wonderful capital.
Decoration from London
How very British – a Harrods Bear.
Decoration from Greece
A new one in our collection: a Santorini donkey
Decoration from Italy
From Ravello, on the glorious Amalfi Coast of Italy.
Decoration from Slovenia
Another new one. Slovenia is wonderful and this decoration sums up this charming country.
So, on that note, thanks for reading our site throughout 2018 – and have a wonderful and safe holiday period.
