I have always placed more value in experiences than in material possessions, whilst I understand that some things are necessary, money, house, stability, I too understand that there comes a time to blow it all and go on an adventure like never before.
This is something which I try to do every 3 to 4 years, just ignore the financial situation for a while and plough almost all that I have in to a trip of a lifetime. If you want to throw off the financial shackles this year and go on one of the World’s most incredible adventures then here are some ideas on where to go and what to do.
Just imagine waking up on an elevated bed which looks out onto the African savannah, hearing tropical birds calling for each other and watching Elephants make their way to the watering hole for breakfast. That is what you will find on an African Safari as well as the opportunity to see some of the World’s most magnificent creatures in their own habitat. For the best safari you should look to hire a private guide who will take you across the planes in a 4×4 and then you will stay in some incredibly luxurious spots across the desert.
A cruise is something is one of the most luxurious ways to travel the World and if you are looking for something special this year then why not book a once in a lifetime World cruise. You will not only be able to sail the seas in a beautiful cabin and indulge in all of the incredible benefits which the boat has such as pools, bars and restaurants, but you will also be able to take in a wide range of countries across the World. Jetting from continent to continent a World Cruise will see you spend roughly one month sailing the seven seas and discovering a great deal about this wonderful planet of ours.
Situated just off the coast of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are a natural wonder which thousands of species of wildlife call home. On a tour of the islands you will see a wide range of native and unique animals living in eco-systems which have peaked the interest of scientists for years. If you are a nature lover then watching the penguins, lizards, tortoise and sea lions which live on the volcanic archipelago. Incidentally, it was from watching the wildlife on these very islands that Charles Darwin conceived the theory of evolution.
If you want to really travel then why not go on a challenge to visit every continent on Earth, there are many tours which will take you on a round the World tour for a single price and you can truly explore the globe. Whether it is watching penguins in Antarctica, visiting Australia’s Great Barrier Reef or seeing the sun rise over Machu Picchu, you can do it all in a single trip around the World.
