Location, Location, Location! Eco-Retreat Center Needs Your Input

Angelina and Brad will most likely NOT be guests at our lodge.  Did their pictures get you to click on this post?  If so, maybe we should invite them!  Hmmm...

As you may know from our previous post about this super-exciting Life Pivot (new phrase – expect it to be all the rage on Twitter for a day), we are embarking on a quest to buy some land and develop our own humble eco-retreat center.  Our plans have changed just a bit from what we wrote about earlier but the overall gist remains.

While we have the whole thing mapped out in our head, the first step remains: Find and buy the land.  We have narrowed it down to one region in one country but aside from that, we’re open to suggestions.

What we need from you, Dear Reader, are your deepest desires in a travel destination.  Do you want a beach within walking distance?  A ranch-like quality where you can see for miles?  Or is close proximity to shops and restaurants more important?  River, hiking, cities, museums, what?  We have an idea of what we ourselves would like but that doesn’t mean others are on the same page.  Later, we’ll be asking you about other details related to our project, like internet capability and televisions vs. “getting away from it all,” etc.

For now, will you help us narrow down possibilities for our eco-retreat location?  Either send us an email at mindfultourist@gmail.com or write in a comment below.  Thanks for your help!

    I prefer a place near the beach with an excellent sitting porch and a good view. I also think it’s neat when places have gardens, orchards, or nurseries that visitors can use (eat the produce/garden/learn about what grows best there).
