Holiday in a box founder Laura

“Travel, to me, is about deepening our connection with one another, as well as the planet. In opening up conversations, fostering an appreciation for difference, and developing a sense of stewardship for our collective heritage – whether natural or human-built – travel paves the way for exchange and understanding.

The Holiday in a Box supports this by offering an immersive, engaging introduction to a new place and offering cultural insight.” – Laura Bannister
