Through volunteering abroad

Volunteering abroad is one of the best ways that you can travel, while also doing something amazing that helps other people. Whether you are looking into volunteering Tanzania, where you can help with teaching, childcare, medical or more different aspects, or if you are looking to volunteer somewhere else, there are so many opportunities. Volunteering includes things such as a safe and secure trip set up for you, airport pick-up, orientation, breakfast and dinner, accommodation and local support too. You will have time off so you can explore the country, as well as learning a new way of life when you are doing your volunteering. You will get to meet new people and know you are making a difference in the life of others.

On a cruise

A cruise is a great way to travel as you get the chance to see so many countries and cities without any hassle. You don’t need to unpack your things or worry about how you are going to get from one place to another. Instead, you simply go to sleep in your cabin on your luxurious cruise ship and wake up somewhere new. You could go from tasting fresh pastries in France to sipping limoncello outside the Colosseum, to watching Flamenco dancing in Spain - all within the same week. It is one of the best and more hassle-free ways to explore the world. Make sure you check out the variety of different ships and find the best one for you. They have all sorts of features including ice rinks, water parks, theatres and so much more, so there is something for everyone.

With a road trip

If you want the flexibility to travel wherever you want and with no restrictions on times or how long you stay places then a road trip could be the perfect trip for you. With a road trip, you can plan a rough itinerary before you go, but then it is down to you! Why not hire out a vintage car with an open-top roof to have the true road trip experience? There are many places you can go on a road trip, it is a good idea to do your research and think of what you want from your trip. Do you want to go to different beaches? If so, a trip around Key West could be good for you. Perhaps you want to see a few different European cities? Or maybe you want to do the famous route 66? Just ensure you are prepared with the right insurance and breakdown cover and know where you can stop for fuel and snacks in case you get hungry along the way! Why not look at Pinterest to find different ideas of where you can head?

On a safari holiday

Safari holidays are a completely unique way to travel and are a real bucket list trip that everyone needs to do in their lifetime. With a safari, you can stay in many types of unique accommodation such as in a safari lodge or camping out. You will get to go on a safari where you will see a range of incredible animals such as zebras, lions and elephants if you are lucky. This trip enables you to see a totally new part of the world and see animals up close and personal in their natural habitat. You can learn more about how they live, what they are like in the wild and get the chance to sleep under the stars. Be sure to read up and find where you want to go as there are so many different safari opportunities for you to choose from. They are quite expensive so you want to make sure you are doing the best for yourself.

Going backpacking

If you are good at packing light and want to travel more on a budget, then backpacking is the ideal way for you to see the world. You can go for a matter of weeks or months, it is completely up to you! Pack your things into a backpack, plan your route and then enjoy the freedom to travel between towns and cities whenever you feel like it. You can either camp or stay in hostels and hotels (or do a mix of all of these.) It is a good idea to research accommodation and camping sites ahead of time so you know where you can stay and how near it is to attractions. Backpacking is a great way to meet new people as you travel and due to this social side, a lot of people are happy doing it solo as well as with friends or their partner.

These are just a few fun ways that you can travel and enjoy yourself when you head abroad. It is important to keep in mind that travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. By travelling the world and taking in new experiences you will come back a happier, more cultured and wiser person. Remember to take plenty of photos to document your trip and plan what you want to do ahead of time so you don’t miss out on anything!
