Value in a jubel experience
Once upon a time, travelers would embark on epic expeditions where maps served as mere suggestions, sea monsters roamed the oceans, and entire civilizations lay unknown. In those times, journeys turned travelers into heroes and stories into legends. The world back then was an unknown and mysterious place, waiting to be explored by the brave and the bold.
Jubel puts mystery and adventure back into travel. Whether you are a beginner or a discerning traveler, our Journeys provide a refreshing new way to discover the world.
Problems Behind Alternative Travel
Overwhelming number of options
- Alternative travel refers to every corner of the world that mainstream tourism isn't talking about. This equates to thousands of options within every destination.
- Many of these unknown places are not worth paying to go to, but there are indeed a few priceless gems. Trying to sort out the latter from the bunch is an extremely time consuming and costly task.
Information available is unreliable
- Trusted sources have not published articles on these destinations yet, otherwise, a flood of tourists would already be there spoiling the magic.
- The only information on these places comes from sources not concerned with filtering practical quality destinations. Most of these are small independent bloggers and travel threads.
Both of the above points make you run the risk of travelling to a place that isn't worthwhile.
Jubel's diligent research solves this problem
With our expertise and expansive on-the-ground knowledge, we assess every possible travel alternative to ensure your destinations are the best suited to you. Depending on your profile, we create a balance of lesser known gems and can’t miss, renowned sights. Travelling with Jubel is hassle-free: don’t worry about knowing what must be booked in advance, finding tried and tested local providers, ending up somewhere during their rainy season, avoiding tourist traps, or travel logistics - we handle all that!
the Adventure in mystery*
- You will feel awesome. Humans are hardwired to enjoy surprising experiences. FMRI research shows that our brain releases more dopamine when reacting to surprising stimuli compared to stimuli we already expect
- Dopamine is a chemical that does wonders for our brains, including stave off bad feelings. Not only that however, surprises also build a tolerance for uncertainty, which in turn reduces anxiety
- If all of this wasn't enough, you will feel more excited, happier, and have more fun because research shows that surprises intensify our emotions by about 400%
- Jubel's unique destinations are awe inspiring, creating a type of sensation only experienced when you find something impressive or powerful. According to a study from the University of California Berkeley, awe reduces our levels of interleukin-6 (il-6), a chemical that promotes inflammation. Not only is the feeling of awe healthy, but it’s also proven to slow down our feeling of time and make us more helpful to others
- You will live fully in every surprising moment because surprise demands that we pay attention to whatever stimuli is surprising us, in part because we don’t know what it is. By forcing our attention, surprise makes us live in the present
