Seeing the world is one of the most satisfying things to do as a human being. Getting to see fantastic pieces of scenery, enjoying different cultures and different foods all add to our experiences that make us who we are, and enable us to grow as people by learning the lessons of different cultures! But what are the best ways to do this? Well, read on and find out!
Staying In Rented Accommodation
This is the way that most people go away on holiday to places they’ve never been before, and for a good reason too! This is one of the easiest ways to get around, when balanced out with cost too of course. Staying in rented accommodation is good because you can choose wherever you want to go and stay, you’re not limited to a set course like you would be on a tour! This means you can also determine the quality of your visit by choosing which accommodation you’re going to stay at, obviously if you’re going to a top quality hotel then you’re going to pay for it, so be prepared for this! You’ve also got a pretty high level of freedom when you stay in rented accommodation too, you’re not bound by any rules so you can visit wherever you like, meaning your trip is truly what you make it.
Going On A Cruise
Cruises are incredibly popular, they’re the stress free option of all of the ways you can see the world because everything is done for you! When you’re on a charter boat, you’re taken along a predetermined course that can take days or weeks or even months depending upon what you’ve paid for! This is the easiest way to see the world because you don’t actually have to do anything; your boat will drive you around, your food will be paid for in the price of the cruise and when the boat anchors up you can feel free to go wherever you like. Cruises will allow you to see a lot of places in the world, but the drawback is that you cannot stay at these places for very long at all as the boat will usually leave a day or two after it has arrived at each of its destinations. They’re also incredibly expensive too, so keep this in mind before you set your heart on it because you’re going to have to pay a lot for it, but the price reflects the quality of what you’re getting.
Going backpacking as it’s commonly called is the only option if you want a true to life experience of the world. Travelling involves you and a couple of friends or even your family, and hitchhiking your way across as country or two! These trips don’t often cost a lot of money because you’re going to be camping, sleeping in cars and in cheap hotels, however for what they lack in price they make up in the sheer effort that you have to put in planning and actually doing the travelling itself! You’re going to have to learn the native tongues of the countries that you’re visiting so that you can effectively communicate with the indigenous population, you’re going to have to buy the right equipment so that you can stay safe out in the unpredictable world, and you’re going ot make sure that you’ve got enough foreign currency to get you through to trip to buy things like food, accommodation and transport. Because of the amount of planning and hard work that goes into making these trips happen, they are possibly the best way out of these 3 to see the world as you’re going to be living in it and experiencing it as opposed to just surveying it, so if you’ve got the stomach and strength for it give it a go!
All of these methods are great for getting away. If you want a chilled out ride then get on a cruise and enjoy sailing past all of the wonders of the world whilst stopping every now and again to soak up the country’s culture, if you want a half and half experience then stay in a hotel and if you’re after a true experience, go travelling and walk it all yourself! Exploring a holiday destination can b pretty bewildering because you’re not going to know when to start and when to stop simply because you don’t know what is what, so read this to have a look at what you should be doing!
