Feed Your Soul Connections Matrix

Feed Your Soul – Connections Matrix

It’s interesting to reflect on the travel experiences that make the most sense for us throughout our lives. In our 20s, the focus is on fun, friends and partying. As kids come into the picture, we turn to holidays by the beach, caravan parks and kids clubs!

But by our 60s, many of us seek deeper meaning from our adventures. We begin to yearn for a connection with the land, with other people and even with ourselves.

From my experience guiding people on adventures throughout Australia, I’ve seen first-hand that the earth is a magnetic place and Australia in particular, is one of the most mesmerising locations you can explore. With one of the oldest, richest, continuous cultures on the planet, there are endless opportunities for people to find a sense of place, a sense of wellbeing and a sense of community. All essential ingredients to feed your soul.


A life well-travelled is a life well-lived and travelling well is all about making deeper connections along your journey. So, what is important to you? What connections will feed your soul? Write a Connections List, a list of all the things that are important to you, like friendships, nature, your partner and the land. Then develop a Connections Matrix where you rank each item and their relative importance to you, where 1 is least important and 5 is very important. This will help you plan a holiday that deep down, nourishes you.
