We all cherish our holiday time. When you do get time off work, it can be easy to book a holiday that you have been on before because it is quick, easy and stress-free. City breaks are the most common example of these kinds of holidays. They are easy to book, easy to get to and if you have been to that city before you know where the things to do are. Getting out of the usual routine for holidays, however, can produce some fantastic experiences. If you are looking to change your holiday plans, here are five ideas for holidays which can get you out of the city and broaden your horizon.
It can be easy to overlook the advantages of going on a cruise holiday with the development of cheap flights, but there are still significant benefits to be found to holidaying on the seas. Firstly, there are many options based on location, duration and if you want a river cruise or sea cruise. There are always several on-shore excursions which can be organised along with a wide variety of activities and entertainment onboard. The other significant advantage to a cruise ship is that it visits multiple destinations in a relatively short space of time.
Going on safari can be one of the most exciting holidays in the world and a real once in a lifetime experience. There are a number of countries where you can organise a safari, but one of the best is Tanzania with the spectacular Serengeti National Park. Being able to see some of the world’s most exciting and rare animals in their natural habitat is a privilege. Along with the fantastic animals, the local culture is rich and vibrant and getting to know the local people is a fantastic experience.
A campervan holiday
Having the freedom a campervan holiday provides can be a great escape from the structure and responsibility of working life. There is a massive variety of fantastic locations, not only in Europe but around the world which can provide you with a brilliant holiday. Campervan hire can often be cheaper as you can combine your accommodation with transportation.
A beach holiday
One of the most relaxing holidays that you can go on is a beach holiday. Simply spending time relaxing on the sand, listening to the waves and soaking up the sun is a great way to de-stress from a hectic work life. There are many beautiful white sandy beaches which are perfect for pulling up a sun lounger, breaking out a book or going for a swim.
Going on a volunteering holiday can be a really rewarding use of your holiday time. The range of opportunities on offer is extensive, and you can really make a difference to a number of great causes such as animal, wildlife and marine conservation, building projects, or teaching a foreign language. This can be a great way to give back to charities or organisations you feel passionate about with your time off work.
