About A Step Ahead

Our concept

Author and philosopher Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) once stated –

People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life…. I think that what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonance within our innermost being and reality, so that we can actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Having an experience is feeling “the rapture of being alive

A journey begins with our imagination, energized by the desire for a change. Once a journey has begun, we become immersed in each experience. At this point time cannot be measured by routine, but by events, and becomes elastic. We are so engrossed in the details of some moments that they seem to last forever, but these are ephemeral, inevitably sliding from experiences into memories. A fulfilled journey is one with many of these memories and treasured moments shared with loved ones and friends, which are relived in our stories. And these are priceless. Planning a journey begins with an objective, and then focuses on details. We are experts at dealing with the details. It is no surprise that we call our product –
