Tired of your job? Feel like you’re stuck in a constant rut? Maybe it’s time that you break out of the old routine of 9-5 working and get away for a bit. Travelling isn’t just for students on their gap year. Anyone can go. All it takes is a little saving and some planning. It’s as simple as that. So grab a group of friends and make a great escape. You’ll thank yourself for it later.
Where To Go?
The world is your oyster. You can go anywhere. So make a list and start ticking off the destinations. First things first: do you want to go international or stay in your home country?
This is the big one. Travelling across seas and land. It may be daunting, but these kind of trips will be worth facing your fears and making the big leap. It will open your eyes to what’s out there. The world is a big place and there’s so much to see! Get a notepad and start listing destinations you want to knock off your bucket list. Here’s a ready made list to check out if you want some inspiration. Beaches, monuments, wonders of the world and more. Surf, sea and sand or cultural mini breaks; there’s a place out there for you.
Whatever travel agents and corporate travel blogs say, you don’t necessarily need to go that far from home to have a great adventure. You can stay relatively nearby and check out some of the wonderful things that your home country has to offer. Delve into local history. Check out museums and art galleries. Learn more about where you come from. You’ll feel all the richer for it.
Accommodation is a big factor when it comes to staying away from home. If you’re taking a road trip, consider using Trail Breaker Camper Vans. This way, your transport and accommodation are all rolled into one. If you’re on a budget, try out hostels. They are safe, secure places to stay and won’t break the bank. If you fancy luxury, check into a hotel. This might cost more but it’ll be an experience to remember.
Mode of Travel
How you choose to travel can make all the difference to your trip. Flights might be the fastest way to get from A to B. We’d always recommend taking the quickest route if you’re only going to be away for a week or two. But if you’re taking an extended trip, you can afford to take your time. You can miss a lot when you’re on a plane thousands of feet up in the air. Why not try trains, driving or sailing? Interrail can take you across most of Europe and you’ll see some breathtaking scenery as you pass by. Driving means that you can take the road off the beaten track and catch a glimpse of lesser-seen destinations. Sailing can be exhilarating. Whether by a huge ship or a smaller boat. Ditch your land legs and sway with the steady motions of the waves. You want to take in as much of the world as you can, so take your time and don’t rush past the little things.
