Nowadays, it seems that the world and its dog go on vacation or travel the world and spend most of their time on social media. In fact, most of the time, you can make the same trip as your friends in the comfort of your own friends because you have seen every inch of their trips through their’Gram! That’s not cool. Anyone can go on holiday and make memories in the form of photos and Boomerangs, but it takes a real traveller to plan a trip that will change your life and stay with you long after you return….
What would life be like without a little spontaneity? When planning a trip that will change your life, it can be easy to go with guides and Internet searches because you can plan a direct itinerary, and plan what you want to see and where you want to go . There’s only one problem… doing it properly is really boring. By leaving yourself flexible (no, you don’t need to do yoga) and allowing yourself to turn away from the tourist trail, you can bring out your spontaneous side and walk in the wild side. These experiences are usually the ones that will leave you with the most laughter and the most interesting stories to tell.
Keep in mind your trip
Because we live in a world where your friends tell you: “Show us a picture, otherwise it didn’t happen” – most of us spend our holidays taking pictures, or with our heads in the sand. Okay, not exactly buried in the sand, but it may be buried in a map or in our phones. But what do you really see of a place if you don’t really look at it? Taking care of yourself and your environment is one of the best ways to plan a trip that will accompany you in the long
Learn something new
If you learn something new during your travels, it allows you to look back at your time in a particular destination and think – “Oh yes, so that’s where I learned the Greek alphabet!” Learning new things during your travels also gives you the opportunity to explore your talents and broaden your horizons. You could learn to cook traditional Thai cuisine, take an art class in Florence or surf in Australia. The possibilities are really endless, so why not go even further towards the end?
Living like local people
Looking to plan a trip that will change your life? Well, hang up your phone, put away your guide, update your local language and see where the wind takes you! It’s the best way to create lasting memories that will make you smile forever.
