There was a time when a vacation meant abandoning the hectic pace of normal life in order to escape to a different world. These days, with every modern technological gadget demanding your attention twenty four hours a day, even a vacation can wind up feeling like work. This winter, when you are feeling the need for a truly stress free vacation, stretch your boundaries and imagine the possibility of going back in time to a place where peace is the norm.
Travel Back In Time
Horse drawn sleigh rides offer the opportunity to travel back to a time when life was more peaceful. Stars were brighter in the night sky, windows glowed with the golden light of kerosene lamps and real sleigh bells truly rang if you were listening. Imagine yourself on a cold winter's eve, tucked into warm winter clothing and covered by soft fleece blankets. You can see your breath in the crisp air. You are lulled into a dreamy state of mind by the rhythmic sound of horses' hooves as they make their way through white powdery snow. The stars are twinkling and the the snow seems to glow in the pale light cast by the moon. This is truly a stress free moment, where the only things that matter are the loved ones cuddled by your side and the space to breathe in and out without a care in the world.
