SOPHISTICATED & STYLISH CULTURE + WELLNESS TRAVEL FOR THE GYPSETTER TO THE JET-SETTER

With over 10 years of experience & insider knowledge of over 60 countries, Escape To Shape is recognized as a leader in curating authentic & memorable holidays that combine luxury, culture, wellness, fitness & relaxation. What sets up apart? Owners Erica & Francesco personally scout, curate & host each Escape, which means you not only experience the best each country has to offer but you gain insider access to off-the-beaten path cultural gems, designers & artisans, chefs & experiences... all while staying in shape along the way!

Wellness is the new luxury, and to us wellness means taking care of yourself from the inside out; it means enjoying life's gifts, playing in the sand, savoring the sunsets, connecting to others in meaningful ways. It means returning home with a healthy glow, fit & refreshed. Wellness should be sustainable, livable, enjoyable, should make you feel great, healthy, balanced and alive.

Travel means different things to different people. But to us, travel is not simply about visiting another culture. It is about so much more. It is about sharing your gifts with those that have less, even if through just a smile; it is about opening your eyes to the various ways that the world works, beyond your own ideas; it is about true human connection with a person from another culture & about a deep reconnection with yourself. To truly travel means your heart is both broken & opened, simultaneously.

Ready to have your breath taken away? To be touched by a culture and people so deep, so rich, so moving? To cross a destination off your bucket AND ​see how WELLNESS feels?

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.

One natural disaster after another- hurricanes, flooding, fires, tropical storms and now an earthquake in Mexico. Each beg the question of how can I help? And each a reminder of the lack of control we have as humans. Yet, we can do more to protect our planet. So, start there. Conserve. Create. Protect. Recycle. Reuse.

Spent all day on an airplane ✈️ , which just makes me miss hiking & being outdoors even more. BUT, the good news is that we are all just one day away from being anywhere in the 🌎. Ready. Set. Jet.

First we tumbled, we cartwheeled, we juggled. We sweated. A lot. We giggled like children and tried things we have not even thought to try since 2nd grade. Then we dined. And then we were entertained. By the same performers who taught us. We were mesmerized. Enchanted. Enthralled. And then we took a photo, to capture the moment when we all came together as one. Artists & audience. Teachers & students. Foreigners and locals. Same same, but different :) ----- I typically save our itinerary secrets, our cool finds, hidden gems and off the beaten path treasures for our clients but I'll give you one piece of advice- when you travel to Cambodia, and I highly recommend traveling to Cambodia, do not limit yourself to the temples. Go deeper. Go beyond. One way to do that is by visiting @pharecambodiancircus. It's well worth it- unique, inspiring, entertaining and well intentioned! ----- #traveltips #coolfind #escapetoshape #escapetoshapecambodia #luxury#luxenomad #circuswithoutanimals #cambodia #thingstodoincambodia #memorable #tumble #fittraveler #wellnesswanderer #letusplanyournextholiday #pharecambodiancircus #samesamebutdifferent ---- Photo credit @nikki_b_love

Cambodia 'crocodile' prayer flags... an abundance of color, an abundance of meaning. Wonderful morning spent exploring Buddhism in our village pagoda.

A glimpse into what our day will look like tomorrow, here in Cambodia. Plus a lotus flower, because who doesn't love a glorious pink flower that survives by pushing through the mud...

A delicious new find in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Colorful. Flavorful. Heart Healthy. Plant Based. Real Food. And a flavor changer from all the Southeast Asia deliciousness. This beautiful & delicious food could make a vegan out of anyone. Promise. Next time you find yourself in magical Cambodia this is a must visit! Plus, they donate money to fund food for hungry local children. What's more to love?
