Travelmodus is about Ideas for Sophisticated Travelers..
Traveling, is an act we do to experience ourselves as a different person, even if only for a short while. Our travel experiences allow us to break from our daily routines and observe the world with different possibilities, behaviors, and lives. We strive to experience our global cultures and settlements, places created by the genius of the human mind.
Regardless their travel reasons, some people have an urge to wander. They enjoy wandering from place to place; they are thirsty to tell their stories and experiences. To create their own opinion, style and curiosity – we call these people ‘Seyyah’*.
To be an influential seyyah, you must use all your senses and instincts. A seyyah must have wisdom with direction, a sharp eye; these people are sniffing for uniqueness and above all must be a good story teller…
Since globalization and the increase commercialization of tourism, doubts have formed about the originality, sincerity and particularity of the genius loci. **
Due to the impact of globalization everything has been washed with a feeling of homogeneity. Places must now strive to protect and preserve their spirit…
The main mission of Travelmodus’ Seyyahs is to discover and expose the originality, difference and diversity and personality of destinations, food, accommodations, services, events and architecture..They share their personal stories, their experiences and discoveries with you sincerely…
Seyyah*: Arabic-Turkish-Indian word for Explorer, Traveler, Voyager.
