Off Beat Vacation Ideas

When you think about vacation, what do you envision? A cruise? Immersing yourself in Europe? Best beaches in the world? Skiing? There are many different types of vacations that one can take. They reflect your personal interest and desires. There are other types of vacations that you can take. These are the vacations that people usually want to take but are too afraid. Whatever the reason, these are the vacations that usually get a look of bewilderment when talked about. We will look at a few off beat vacations and see why they should be included in the list of potential adventures for your next vacation.

Rent a RV and hit the road. You get bonus points if you get an older version that is not packed with amenities. By amenities, I mean the nice tour bus looking RVs. No, for this trip it is all about you and the open road and in order to experience it you need to rough it. You will be staying at camp sites and have to make your own food. Don't worry about catching your favorite TV shows while you are driving because there will be no TV available. You need to concentrate on all the beautiful scenery. There is a lot out there for you to see. You can see history, mountains, and beaches. There is also everything in between. So pack up and get ready for the best road trip yet.

Following suit with the RV idea, book a plane ticket and head to Europe. All you need is a backpack. I understand that backpacking through Europe is a idea that people do every year, but it's still not for everyone which is why it is on the list. When you back pack through Europe you allow yourself to trust the cultures and live on a whim. You don't stay at nice hotels and eat at the fancy restaurants. You are there to see the sites and make up the itinerary as you go. I can honestly say I would not be able to survive backpacking through Europe, but I am very impressed by those that can.

Another type of vacation that will be very rewarding is to travel and help in a country that is in need. Volunteering is such a rewarding experience. How is this considered a vacation? Well you are still away from your everyday life. There are people all over the world that need help and will never have the option to take a vacation. Many of the top vacation destinations are surrounded by poverty. Even if you only donate one day of your time, you would be helping to change someone's life.

There are all kinds of vacations that are out there. You could chose to do anything in the world, but hopefully you will consider one of these trips that we suggested. They will bring you out of your comfort zone and put you more in tuned to the world around you. Traveling is great for the mind, body and spirit. Only you can find and build a trip that is best for you.
