Some people travel to places because they are familiar and comforting locations. Others are looking more for unique experiences. They are looking for something that they have never seen before, or they are looking to do something they have never done before. If you find that you are less interested in relaxing on vacation and more interested in expanding your comfort zones, then you should make sure to indicate that with your travel plans.
There are lots of different ways that you can initiate these new experiences. When you go camping somewhere new, there are different things that you can try in various environments. For a high-end experience, try staying at the most expensive hotel that you can afford. That will give you lots of chances to create new stories for yourself. For random experiences, you might want to check out temporary rentals that you could get through an Airbnb arrangement. And then there’s always throwing yourself into the wind and deciding that you are going to travel to see a friend of yours and stay with them to see what their lifestyle is like.
Especially if you live in the city, then maybe think about traveling somewhere to go camping to get a unique experience. There different kinds of camping as well. For example, you could go out into the wilderness and rough it with a tent, and use your survival skills to build a fire and cook food out in the open. Or, you could go somewhere to camp in an RV and have all of the accommodations you are used to at home, but out in a wilderness environment.
Staying In Expensive Hotels
Another way to have a unique experience is to stay at an expensive hotel. It might be a once-in-a-lifetime chance for you to see how the top 1% of the population lives. If you can get a good deal on a fantastic hotel, even staying there for a few days will open your eyes about what it means to live in luxury. If you are trying to impress a partner of yours, this will go a long way into creating a bonding experience for the two of you as well.
Checking Out Temporary Rentals
You can also choose to stay at a temporary rental if you’re looking for a unique travel option. There are amazing places that you can go and visit at wholly independent and unique Airbnb locations. If you research the most exciting cities to live in and then find people who are renting out there places around activities, you can’t help but run into new experiences even traveling to or from these places. If you talk to the owners of these rental places, they will often give you good advice about where to go during your travels as well.
Staying With Friends
Another way to get unique experiences under your belt while you’re traveling is to stay with friends. It is probably going to be your lowest cost option. You do have to realize that you may be on your own as far as figuring out what to do and where to go if your friends are busy. Especially if a friend of yours lives in a foreign country though, this can absolutely be the best way for you to travel.
