Going on adventures around the world requires a lot of research and planning. There are some out there who simply throw a dart on a map and make plans to get there and then there are others who are working to a travel budget. It’s important before you set off that you have a destination in mind and, particularly, a mode of travel that you hope to get you there!
Your entire holiday is going to depend on whether you have chosen to go short or long haul, or if you want to go trekking. What we’ve done is put together some of the best tips we know for each to help you to make your travel plans a reality.
Short Haul Breaks
Whether you want to be less than a three-hour plane ride away, or you fancy jumping on a ferry to the nearest continent, a short haul holiday is an excellent option for those working to a budget. You get to see parts of the world you’ve never seen before. You get to experience cultures and food that, while not far from home in distance, is far from home in tastes! The biggest advantage of a short haul holiday is that you won’t be spending as much money to get there, meaning you could see more than you had planned due to the money saved! Trek across Europe and stay at hostels along the way. Taste the delights of Spanish paella while overlooking the sandy beaches and volcanic mass that is Tenerife. Whichever way you choose to travel – be it plane, euro train or ferry – you can get where you want to be. Trekking your way through Europe has never been easier than it is right now, and there is so much you can get out of it!
Long Haul Breaks
Long haul holidays are often the choice for those wishing to experience the furthest reaches of the world. Taking on River Cruises – India, Amazon and more – G Adventures can take you and your friends places you never thought you’d get to, without breaking your bank balance. Taking advantage of a long haul break at a cost you can afford doesn’t just gain you the experiences from around the globe, but it can help you to learn a lot about yourself. The journey to get to the furthest reaches of the world is often difficult, but it’s not just about the journey; it’s the destination. Experience riding an elephant in India and take that river cruise through the heavy air of the Amazon rainforest. You’ll need so much more than a plane trip to get to those areas of the globe that have been rather forgotten!
Your journey to discovery will never really stop, as there is always something new to see, new to experience and new to eat. As long as you’ve got your passport, your visas and a handful of clothes, you can travel the globe piece by piece. Plane, train or boat doesn’t matter anymore when the world is at your feet!
