Travel is Wellness

Lydia Gwin is now Kirkwood Lifestyle Magazine's Culinary Adventure Specialist

You've know her as Chef Lydia, but did you know she is now also know as Lydia Gwin Culinary Adventure Specialist? Kirkwood City Lifestyle Magazine is proud to feature Lydia Gwin as our new travel advisor as she mixes her love of food with her passion for travel. 

As we enter a new year, we are presented with a unique opportunity to prioritize our wellness and personal growth. While we often focus on the traditional resolutions of improving our diets, exercising more, or reducing our screen time, another option can be just as transformative: travel.

The power of travel is unparalleled in its ability to break us out of our daily routine, immerse us in new experiences, and provide us with a mental, spiritual, and social reset. Traveling to new places can broaden our horizons and give us a fresh perspective on life.

Imagine yourself hiking through the majestic beauty of Banff National Park, taking in the awe-inspiring views of Lake Louise, or feeling the soft pink sand between your toes on the beaches of Barbados. Each of these experiences offers a unique opportunity to connect with the world around us and to connect with ourselves in the process.  

Whether you choose to travel to a far-off destination or take a simple car trip across a state line, you have the possibility of discovering not just your destination but also yourself.

My next adventure is a wine and wellness voyage through Southern Tuscany. I'll be guiding an intimate group trip of no more than 10 people, and we will spend seven days exploring the food hands-on, meeting winemakers, and hearing the stories of the artisans in the area.   @adventuresbylydia

Travel offers the possibility of discovering a new destination and something new about you.
