Having an adventure is always great and so many of us go on holiday to places that are not a great deal different from any other holiday resort. And sometimes it’s what you want – a simple, uncomplicated holiday that allows you to recharge the batteries. Nothing too adventurous.
Don’t get it wrong, by “adventurous” I’m not talking about going parasailing or skydiving. An adrenaline holiday can be fun, but it’s quite literally not for everyone. Health requirements can immediately strike those off the list for a lot of people.
No, by adventurous, I’m talking about a holiday that sees you really take in some of your destination. So many resorts are just that – resorts. They are places tucked away and self-contained, with bars and cafes where everybody speaks English.
You could, if you squinted, be in California. Which is nice, but sometimes you want a real change from the norm. And if you take a package holiday, sometimes all you’re doing is giving the norm an accent. So why not, instead, take a break somewhere unfamiliar but interesting, and use accommodation that gives you control?
A Camping Trip?
As we’ve noted, some types of holiday aren’t for everyone. Into that camp would probably fall camping. Some people aren’t keen, but for those who are camping has so much going for it. As close to nature as it’s possible to get, with all of the freedom that comes from being able to carry your accommodation. And that means you can go anywhere, more or less. Sure, you can’t camp out in someone’s garden without permission, but there are a lot of places you can go.
A Villa Break?
It’s pleasant to stay in a hotel every once in a while, that’s for sure. The feeling of having everything taken care of can be a relaxing one. However, it does tie you down to the hotel’s schedule to a large extent. Staying in a villa, instead, puts you in control. Charming rural locations in France and Italy and holiday homes with heated pools are a choice worth making. They’re the ideal way to get away from it all.
An RV Tour?
For many people, there may initially seem little difference between camping and going on an RV trip. In both cases, you’re taking your accommodation with you. However, in an RV you’re a lot more shielded from the elements – and you never know when it might rain.
And when you get to your destination there is no tent to pitch, which means that anywhere can be your destination. If you have the time you can drive across America, tour Europe or go pretty much anywhere you want. It’s not an ideal holiday for families with kids, but for the single traveler, couple or group of friends it’s perfect.
As we become more globally aware, the options for holidays become more and more diverse. This means that if you want to try something new and unique, there is something out there for you. So now is an excellent time to think about broadening your horizons!
