Yoga, Travel, Inspiration

"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."



"The world is a book, and those who don't travel read only one page."    

                                                                               St Augustine


"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness."

                                                                                Mark Twain

"Let the world change you, then you can change the world."

Luminous Trails currently offers the following unique journeys of the spirit. (See Yoga page for yoga retreats.)


Hidden Wonders of the World

Visit the lesser known hidden Wonders of the World. Everyone knows about the Egyptian Pyramids, the Taj Majal and the great Wall of China, but what about the pyramids in Nazca, or Northern Peru? The underwater temples off Japan and Bimini? Tiahuanaco in Bolivia and Borobudur in Indonesia, Mayan temples as yet undiscovered and unexcavated but known about, the special manna stone on Easter Island or Axum in Ethiopia which houses the original Ark of the Covenant? What about witnessing the whirling dervish dance in Koyna, Turkey, the Loi Krathong lantern festival in Thailand, or making a walking pilgrimage to Mount Kailash in Tibet or Santiago de Compostela in Spain? Discover these and many other hidden wonders with Jacqueline on a series of specially designed trips.
