So as I write this, we're enjoying a beautiful Christmas holiday during our last few days with Adam (co founder/partner) & his family in the Norfolk countryside. I should probably take the time off work & my computer, however I do believe that everyone who is involved with My Mantra, be it a loyal customer or someone following us on social media is also our family, so I wanted to share our plans for 2017 with you.
We are nomads at heart & we travel most of the year through hot tropical countries around the world, however, we made a promise to ourselves and our families that no matter what, we will always be home for Christmas every single year.
Over the past few winter months back in the UK, we've had the opportunity to connect with some more amazing people & spread word of our beautiful brand My Mantra Active. As much as this brand was born in the tropics and will always have a wild side to it, it also has deep roots in the UK where the brand is based at the moment.
So 2016 has seen us - the founders travelling for 6 months through South East Asia, while also running active escapes with our 2nd brand New Horizon Active Escapes
. It has been such an epic year for us & both of our brands. We've met some incredible people along the way and have heard some incredible stories - which is what travel is all about.
2017 will have a different story to tell us. We will have 2 bases for the brand. Base nr 1 will be in the UK where all the stock is being kept and where our despatch team is. Base nr 2 will be in the beautiful Thailand, on a beautiful tropical island called Koh Samui. Koh Samui is the main island out of the 3 islands clustered next to each other and is only a short distance away from the island where My Mantra was born - Koh Tao.
So you're probably thinking why are we settling when we love travelling so much? Well the answer is simple, we need a base. A place we can call home and a place where we can leave all of our belongings. The travel will not end there and we plan to visit countries like Philippines, Japan, Taiwan & a few others. In the mean time, we have 6 active retreats to run in between 3 locations - Koh Tao
- Koh Samui
So yes, we will have a busy and exciting 2017 & we wouldn't have it any other way. We love new places, we love a good old challenge and we love new experiences. So what better way to do this than to launch ourselves full speed into 2017 with a schedule that's jam packed with new My Mantra clothing, loads of fun active escapes
& more travelling to new destinations in Asia :)
We are wishing you all a Happy New Year & we hope your 2017 will be one you will never ever forget.
In the mean time - if you visit Koh Samui at any point, please DM us and let's catch up over a cold coconut on the beach.
Stay positive & smile endlessly.
The Founder - Ina Plesca
