Myanmar

Why is there such an obligatory feeling to work on ones holiday? In most case scenarios, I wouldn't have bothered bringing and burdening myself with my new Nikon toy & its accessories on my week off. But I was going to Myanmar, a nation that I have placed close to my heart and visually strikes me as one of the most photogenic countries I have even seen.

The Rules

The Rules | Tourism : StoryTravelling | Scoop.it
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Despite the fact that Miss Turner was convinced I would never amount to anything as a writer, I continued telling stories, and I urged others to do the same. I continued to come across references to rules and different paradigms that suggested a limit to storytelling. There are only seven types of story. Show, don’t tell. Don’t use fragments. They all bemused me.

British man | First to visit all 201 countries WITHOUT using a plane

British man | First to visit all 201 countries WITHOUT using a plane | Tourism : StoryTravelling | Scoop.it

Graham Hughes, from Liverpool, used buses, taxis, trains and his own two feet to travel 160,000 miles in exactly 1,426 days - all on a shoestring of just $100 a week. 'I love travel, and I guess my reason for doing it was I wanted to see if this could be done, by one person traveling on a shoestring,' he told the Christian Science Monitor. 'I think I also wanted to show that the world is not some big, scary place, but in fact is full of people who want to help you even if you are a stranger.'

Rescooped by Tourism:Collaterals from StoryBranding: How brands can embrace the power of story

Consumers Hungry for Brand Stories

Consumers Hungry for Brand Stories | Tourism : StoryTravelling | Scoop.it

An October 2012 survey by Edelman Berland and Adobe found that American consumers are looking for deeper brand engagement than banner ads and social media “like” buttons. 73% of the 1000 adults surveyed agreed with the statement, “Advertisements should tell a unique story, not just try to sell.”

 Marketers are probably shaking their heads back and forth right now, thinking, “But we have been telling you stories all along!” Perhaps, but the beauty of story is in the eye of the beholder. Clearly, many customers are not feeling engaged and immersed in the brand stories they’re currently hearing. They’re hungry to connect with other users and share their experiences, whether positive or negative. Confident brands that can get comfortable with this loss of control are likely to move ahead, I believe.

Switzerland | "Clocks"

Switzerland's appeal as a vacation destination is timeless. As proof, the nation's tourism authority springs "Clocks" on the masses. Spillman/Felser/Leo Burnett's film finds Sebi and Paul, a pair of bearded locals introduced earlier in the campaign, on a mission to remove or disable every timepiece in their wintery homeland to facilitate relaxing holidays for stressed-out travelers.

Mardi Gras | Tourism promoters revive tradition.

Mardi Gras | Tourism promoters revive tradition. | Tourism : StoryTravelling | Scoop.it

After the Rex organization launched its first Mardi Gras parade in 1872, the founders came up with a clever way to attract a crowd. They sent out posters bearing a declaration from the king about his one-day reign over New Orleans, beckoning visitors to join the celebration.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

"His majesty invites all of his subjects to gather, from far and near, to join in the many celebrations and processions which will shortly unfold under the joyful Carnival banner. He promises that the festivities and pageants arranged for this celebration will surpass in joyousness and exceed in beauty the most brilliant attainments of the glorious past, culminating in his grand procession on Tuesday, February 12, 2013."

Spinning a Strategic Story to stand out on higher ground

Spinning a Strategic Story to stand out on higher ground | Tourism : StoryTravelling | Scoop.it

The world of travel, tourism and hospitality is a competitive one, with thousands of brands fighting to stay afloat in a raging sea of sameness. To distinguish your brand in a crowded marketplace, you must look beyond the more obvious features of your product to consider the broader experience you create for your customers, the meaning they take away from those experiences, and the role you play in their lives by providing them.

Peru | Brand Campaign 2012

"Unlike the man in the video, I waited until I was 54 to begin wandering the world, but the sentiment is the same. It is so easy to forget that love of friends and family, laughter, and joy are so much more important than working 70 hours per week for things like money, success, and fame, which in the end bring no joy. In my case, joy results from realizing, time and again, that we are all one human family, and Peru was one of the places on this earth that forcefully brought that message home." By Barbara Weibel
