1000x686 img 1

Whenever we travel and spend our vacation away from home, at a resort or a hotel, 73% of the time we return with something we didn’t have when we got there. Isn’t that so? We’re not talking about all the gifts and typical souvenirs we bring back for the family, but about those hotel items that end up in our toiletry bag and our suitcase: a new bar of soap, the little bottle of body lotion that smells so nice, the shower cap (“in case I get around to using it some day”), the shoe shine sponge… even the slippers…

Is envy a good thing?

A little envy is harmless enough. The kind of envy you experience when you enjoy seeing others having a great time. The kind of envy that makes you want to explore, discover, experience, enjoy and savour. The kind of envy we all feel when we hear Canadians Kiefer and Michelle telling us about their vacation experience from the IBEROSTAR Quetzal in Mexico or when Michael gives his passionate vision of the culinary delights on offer at the IBEROSTAR Costa Dorada as he hugs his kids. We enjoy seeing others enjoy themselves; after all, we want only the best for ourselves…
