We have reached the end of another year and now seems like the perfect time to think about what we have achieved and look ahead to the new year inspired and excited for what is to come. For many people, travel always seems to be a high priority when it comes to planning the year ahead. Why wouldn’t it be? Considering you can gain so much from travel expeditions and experiencing new cultures and places. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the inspiring and thought-provoking travel ideas perfect a new year ahead.
Sometimes it’s worth considering a travel idea with a difference. Too many of us would opt for a beach vacation and let our feet submerge in white sandy shores, But while that type of holiday is a great way to relax why not try something different next year? You could consider a chance to volunteer abroad which could prove a wonderful holiday option. Working with animals, volunteering for a charity campaign, the options are endless. What this type of holiday does give you is a bit of perspective on your life. While making some fantastic memories in the process.
Consider something out of character
Maybe 2017 is all about trying new things for you, so why not use the opportunity to try a holiday that perhaps is out of character for you. That could be taking a cruise. Cruising is seen as something for older couples, but more younger people are taking the chance to see many locations during one travel expedition. Plus the entertainment and food options aboard these cruise liners are so far removed from what they use to be. It’s definitely worth trying at some point in your life.
Try a city break somewhere new
City breaks are full of history and culture, don’t you think? The chance to wander the streets and soak in the atmosphere of a new place. City breaks are best experienced trying to see and do as much as you can in a short space of time. So ensure you plan your trip accordingly to make sure you experience as much of the city as possible.
Consider exploring the country you live in
Sometimes we don’t take advantage of the country we live in, so maybe next year is the time to explore it a little more. Taking in some of the less known cities perhaps, or some of the tourist hotspots close to home. Too often we don’t take advantage of the place we live, and a lot of the time we have so much closer to home, that it can make for some of the best holidays.
Camping can be a huge adventure
If you are staying close to home, or even traveling somewhere new, maybe consider camping as your form of accommodation instead of the standard hotel or holiday let. Camping can be a lot of fun and can add to your holiday. Putting the tent up, cooking outside and sleeping under the stars are just some of the highlights.
I hope this has inspired you to consider some different travel ideas for the new year ahead.
