How did you like your last vacation? Did you enjoy yourself? Did you find something thrilling? Was there some relaxing time or did your last vacation entail bussing your family around, doing some yard work and other chores? Was your last “vacation” essentially a “staycation”? Why not go for something out of the ordinary this year? When you have a short time off, why not look into some of the various adventure travels that may be available in your backyard. Even if you don’t want to leave your state, there are many adventures you can try out. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, why not experience a true adventure? Here are some incredibly trendy adventure travels.
It may be hard to believe, but some cruises are considered adventure travels. There are some cruises with target docking points, such as Europe or the Greek Isles, which can be a wonderful way to get out on an expedition to learn about the great moments in history and tour historical sites. Don’t you want to see where the first Olympic games were held? Do you want to see Stonehenge in-person? There are many options to keep you active while on the boat. These cruises generally have various options for staying busy – like rock climbing and sea diving.
There is so much more to a cruise than lounging around on the lido deck! Dude Ranches can be wonderful excursions for the entire family. The Ponderosa Ranch in Nebraska provides you with a laborious ranch vacation. You can be an occupant in the ranch’s guest cabins. During the day you become a real working ranch hand. Guests ride horseback and help out by rounding up and driving the ranch’s cattle from one pasture location to another. During the evening, people tell campfire stories, enjoy some good ‘ole home cooking and get involved in some wonderful activities. When you have free time, you have several options to choose from, including hunting, fishing, hiking and riding horses. This is a really good vacation for families because they welcome people from all age groups and skill levels.
Are you a lover of food? Do you drool when you learn about and taste cuisine from around the world? How about going on a culinary tour? By all means, Italy is among the height of popularity when it comes to food destinations and people who want to try cuisine in it “native habitat.” Ireland, Spain and Greece also offer fabulous “culinary tours.” In addition to tasting the food after it’s prepared, by “native” chefs, these tours also allow you to learn how to cook a variety of dishes on your own. This is a great adventure travel for an up and coming chef or any food connoisseur. Also check out Gumlog Plantation hunting for a more fun retreat with nature.
Adventure travels were designed to get people to venture beyond their comfort zones. They allow you to explore sides of your personality that you don’t usually share with others. Are you tired of sitting on your couch and daydreaming about what life is like in other parts of the world? Have you always wanted to scale a mountain, swim with dolphins or camp out in the great outdoors of Australia or New Zealand? These are all available to you. You can simply make a choice of what type of adventure you want and go out and do it. It’s easier than you might think it is.
