Seeing more of the world is something all of us should aim to do, if you travel a lot then you’ll know the benefits it brings. Not only is it fun but it genuinely improves your life, teaches you so much, opens your eyes and educates you about things that you simply can’t read about in books. But if you want to take things a step further, there are certain goals that would benefit most seasoned travellers- here are some to consider.
Create a travel bucket list
If you’re a seasoned traveller you’ll have already visited many places in the world, but of course there’s always more to do and see. It makes sense to write a list of the places you’d like to go as well as the experiences you’d like to have, it could be hot air ballooning over London to helicopter rides in Vegas, swimming in the Great Barrier Reef and climbing to the top of the Statue of Liberty. Think about places in the world you’re yet to visit, or those you’ve been to but didn’t get to spend as much time there as you’d like. Make a list, and then you can build a plan to make it happen.
Save for a world cruise
World cruises are the ultimate form of travel. Many last up to (or over) a whole year, and what a year of your life it would be. They’re certainly not cheap, but something you could really save for with the intention of doing one day. You’ll get to travel to many different places across the globe on the ultimate luxury of a cruise liner, what could be better? Combine land tours with leisurely days spent at sea, whether it’s something you do in your retirement years or as a way to take a year out between jobs, it’s certainly a way you can enrich your life.
Buy a holiday home
If you love to travel on a regular basis and there’s a place in the world you always find yourself gravitating back towards, have you considered purchasing a holiday home? That way you can go back and visit whenever you like without having to worry about paying for accommodation. The rest of the time you can rent it out to holidaymakers and enjoy some passive income. Lots of sites have information on this kind of thing, look at Woodleigh Residences details for example. If you hire an estate agent to manage things for you there will be very little hassle to you, and it’s great for travel as well as improving your finances!
Invest in a caravan or RV
If a holiday home is out of your budget or just isn’t your kind of thing, a caravan or RV could be another option to consider. There’s something so wholesome and fun about camping, it’s relaxing, great for all ages and is inexpensive. You can take your caravan or campervan to different sites all over the country, and you get to see new places at the weekends. Hopping on a plane isn’t always practical due to money and time constraints, but it’s almost always possible to tow your caravan to your car or hop in your RV and take a drive to the countryside and camp out!
Go somewhere you’d never think to go
As a keen traveller you’ll more than likely have a huge list of places you want to visit, but why not do something a little different? For your next trip, why not pick somewhere you’d never ordinarily have thought to go? Obviously you won’t want to go to a war zone or somewhere uninhabitable, but there are millions of interesting locations across the globe that you might be overlooking entirely. Every place in the world will have its points of interests, things to see and lessons to learn. Maybe you could close your eyes, spin a globe and put your finger on it- as long as it’s a realistic place to go you could visit there. Perhaps you could do some research on usual destinations and consider giving one a visit. If you’ve fallen into a habit of visiting the same kinds of places and doing the same sort of things then this could help you to break the cycle and who knows, it could be one of the best experiences you’ve ever had!
