Travel is a great passion to have because it allows you to see the world and have so many new experiences. However, if you’re already a seasoned traveler, you may find it difficult to find new adventures, so here are some suggestions for trips you may not have considered before.
1. Island hopping
Island hopping is a great way to enjoy multiple destinations during your vacation, without long transfers in-between. From Scotland to Greece, there are many places around the world where you can island hop, the Caribbean is one of the most popular choices, as it has over 7,000 islands. It’s easy to organize yourself; you can find ferry and seaplane times online and then either reserve them or find booking information.
If you’ve always wanted to see exotic animals up close in their habitat, rather than behind glass at the zoo, then a safari is for you. Nothing is more thrilling than seeing the sunrise or sunset in the desert, with herds of animals roaming and the natural surroundings. It’s the kind of experience you’ll never forget. While safaris are great for adventurous travelers, it couldn’t be easier to book one. Tanzania Odyssey Safaris specialize in safaris, so they can give you lots of options for your special trip.
3. A cruise
So, a lot of people, especially in the younger generation, don’t like the idea of cruises. They may think they’re too slow-paced, or that they’re only for older people. However, cruises have changed a lot in the past few years, opening up to a more diverse market. There are more varied destinations, from the Northern Lights to the Mediterranean, as well as more options for dining and on-board activities, so they’re fun for all ages.
4. Take an iconic hike
From Machu Picchu to New Zealand’s Milford Track, some of the world’s most amazing destinations are best seen on foot. Lace-up those well-worn hiking boots and head for some of the world’s best hiking trails, whether it’s somewhere in your home country or half the world away. The best part about hiking is that it’s cheap and there are tours to suit different fitness levels, so you don’t need to be super-fit to try some of these experiences.
5. A long train journey
If you’ve only ever been on a train for your daily commute, then you’re missing out! There are great train journeys to be had around the globe, and depending on where you visit, the trains often have great onboard accommodation where you can relax and enjoy the view. If you’re unsure about this kind of trip, start off with a long Amtrak journey in the USA. Amtrak offers roomettes, where you can sleep, and viewing cars, where you can enjoy the scenery.
6. A volunteering trip
Want to see more of the culture of a country? You can do that and help the local community by looking for a volunteering opportunity abroad. From teaching to building work, there are lots of ways you can volunteer your time, and you often stay with locals, so you pick up the language and really get to know the country you’re visiting.
