Since at the moment we cannot simply book plane tickets and physically discover new places, we want to bring those top travel destinations for 2021/ 2022 to you.
If you read our post about sounds healing, you will be familiar with its benefits. More energetic music can make your workout feels easier, while sound baths can help you meditate and ease symptoms of stress or anxiety. Overall, sound can be used to improve your wellbeing by positively influencing your emotional, physical and mental health. By matching the frequencies of our own vibrational waves to that of the music around us we can undertake a process of healing, relaxation, clarity and concentration.
To help you relax and overcome the worry caused by those difficult times, but also to inspire your future travel plans, we researched the sounds of those sustainable travel destinations– from nature, through sounds of the cities, to folk music.
We hope you find this collection encouraging to start planning your next travel retreat…

Sounds of Costa Rica

Biodiversity in this stunning country–considered the ultimate eco–friendly and environmentally responsible destination–does not only include animals- the floras obviously cannot be heard:)
Sounds of The Azores
Sit down, close your eyes and imagine that you are relaxing on an empty beach, looking into the distance at sea. This footage was taken in the place called Agua de Pau on the island of San Miguel, Azores. This eco-friendly archipelago of 9 islands is located 1500km west of Portugal, almost in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. So why the deer? You can spot them easily when at the Azores, so why now?:)
Sounds of Nepal

Sounds of San Francisco
This is one of the most relaxing sounds in this collection… Listen to the ocean crashing wave sounds at San Francisco’s Bay, on the shore of the Pacific Ocean. The video was recorded over 3 days, before the sunrise to try to catch the cleanest sound…
Sleep, study, meditate or simply imagine being in there now..
Sounds of Slovenia
Just like the song which harmonizes ancient customs, popular beliefs and nature with a sunny turn, this music feels like is touched by ancient traditions with a modern expression.
Folk music is like a memory from ancient times, an echo of a space that carries the diversity of Slovenian landscapes. The sounds and video show what the richness of differences in culture and Slovenia’s nature and the world in general means.
At the end of the new century, it is no longer just about a renaissance, but resonance, not just about sonority, but about sympathy, not just for listening, but for tuning, so tune in…
Sounds of Palau
A very short recording to bring you sounds of Palau’s tropical rainforest… Palau is truly a country of natural wonders stretched across limestone and volcanic islands, with jellyfish lake, green forests, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean…
Close your eyes, feel into your body and imagine that you are on a relaxing “seaescape” or a retreat.
Sounds of Galapagos Islands

Sounds of Rwanda
2020 marks 30 years since the famous primatologist and conservationist Dian Fossey, who studied the gorillas and was murdered by poachers at her base in Karisoke, in Rwanda.
