Let’s face it: we all desperately need a break. With all the stress of daily life, who wouldn’t want to drop everything and go off on a journey to recharge your batteries. So grab onto your Polaroid cameras and wanderlust tattoos and find out what all types of vacation you can take and which one is the best for you.
The Solo Trip
We all know this one. Be it either ‘Queen’ or ‘Eat, Pray, Love’, solo trips tend to help in introspection, soul searching and provide clarity. And even if all that doesn’t excite you, a solo trip is a great way to meet new people and get interesting stories. While there is always a safety issue, many people have managed to backpack solo through countries and stay in hostels without harm. You just need to be vigilant. You can create your schedule according to your tastes and preferences and you don’t have to sit around and compromise trying to make everyone on the trip happy.
This trip is for you if: You want a complete change of place and people, you wish to grow and be independent and you want something daring and adventurous.
Nature lovers unite. With the rise in global warming and environmental degradation, who knows how long we can enjoy nature and forests for. So a camping trip is a great way to reconnect with the environment and learn a sustainable living. Camping is a great way to bond with friends. In our daily lives, we are constantly surrounded by this concrete jungle so it is nice to lay back, relax and enjoy that primitive lifestyle.
This trip is for you if: You like nature, you want a nice getaway and wish to unwind and de-stress. If you have had camping trips as a child, going as an adult also brings back nostalgia.
The ideal trip for everything. From getting more likes on Instagram to a more holistic view of the world and different cultures, the trip abroad is something you’d never regret. This trip can be taken with friends, family, your partner, basically anyone. While this trip may be more expensive and have longer flights, exploring a whole new country has a very different charm to it.
This trip is for you if: You’re a history and global culture buff. If you watch foreign shows, read foreign books or are learning a new language it’s always good to experience the place firsthand.
ROAD TRIP!! This trip is by far the most common trip in movies and books. The fact that these can be planned or spontaneous, is cheap, can accommodate a lot of people and are flexible makes road trips extremely appealing. Plus, if you want to test your compatibility as friends or partners, what can be better with staying with them, locked in a vehicle 24/7.
This trip is for you if: You love driving, long rides, highways and don’t mind sleeping in cars. It’s for those who love spontaneity in their life and want to get closer to someone.
There’s nothing like getting the adrenaline rushing through your veins. This trip is for everyone who loves a good challenge. This trip gives you the experience of a lifetime along with bruises, scars and many, many stories to brag to your coworkers and tinder dates with. For the couple or friends trying to fulfill their ‘paradise falls’ dreams, this trip is definitely a must.
This trip is for you if: You love thrill, risk and a sense of true adventure. If you like getting your hands dirty. If everything from jumping from heights to swimming deep into the oceans excites you, this trip won’t be a disappointment.
This trip starts at your bedroom and ends at your living room couch. Sometimes all you need is a few days in, with some me-time and pizza. Whether it be binging entire seasons of a much-awaited show, or an extended sleepover with your friends, staying at home can also be fun.
This trip is for you if: You really just want to snuggle under the covers and sleep to cover for all the all-nighters you have had been pulling. It’s a good way to recharge your batteries completely without any hassle and without any expense.
Whatever trip you take, all that matters is that you have fun! The world can be a difficult place, and there’s nothing like taking some time off either alone or with some friends and family to do stuff you normally won’t get time to do. Pack your bags, for even though it’s very cliche to say, Not all who wander are lost.
