Sometimes, the thought of embarking on a challenge that is out of your norm and pushes you out of your comfort zone can be a scary thought. However, stepping out of your comfort zone forces you to do things you wouldn’t usually do which is highly beneficial. Traveling to a new place where you don’t understand the language and have no friends to guide you can be an overwhelming experience. You can have all the reasons to be frightened, however it is important to embrace this feeling and to just go for it… you won’t regret it!
Below are five destinations to help to inspire your next adventure:
If you’ve been considering embarking on an adventurous holiday, Morocco is the perfect place to start. With its rocky mountains and carefree surfing resorts, Morocco is a spectacular destination for someone wanting to experience new things. One of the best things you can do in this country is to go camel-trekking through the deserts or across the Atlas Mountains. Going camping in the Sahara Desert is also an option for the more adventurous; book an all-night tour to stay in a Bedouin tent, doze off under the stars and feast over beautiful sunrises.
When planning an adventure, another amazing location to visit is Laos. First, you can navigate through the 8kilometer river cave passages of Xe Bang Fai River. The entrance of the cave features a beautiful emerald pool. Next, you must explore the Ho Chi Minh Trail; the 1000-kilometer-long spine runs across Vietnam and Laos. Laos is a beautiful country and is home to some amazing cuisine and stunning landscapes.
Fiji is a beautiful country that has masses to offer to travellers, as it boasts 333 tropical islands and an interesting culture. Fall in love with the island as you snorkel in the crystal-clear waters and witness the abundant marine life. Spend a day or two in the Navala village, the home for rugged rainforest and lush mountains. You can have fun with the locals as you observe their cultures, climb coconut trees, discover the village trails and go for a dip in the cool waters.
This Central American country boasts coastlines on the Caribbean and Pacific, and is blessed with rich wildlife, dense hills and blossoming rainforest. When planning your travels, there are lots of things to see and do. For instance, you can go paragliding to one of the most beautiful places in the world. Fly like a bird over the magnificent scenery of the rainforest and observe the beautiful sunset. You can also go night kayaking in bioluminescent water in Costa Rica’s Bahia Beach; the scenery in the evening enhances this experience even further.
If you feel like you are going on the same holidays year on year, travelling to Hong Kong is the perfect way to break out of this rut. One fun thing to do is walk through ‘Ghost Town’; there are several abandoned houses and villages across the city. The eerie, strange atmosphere at Ma Wan Ghost Town brought by deserted houses, restaurants, and other establishments offers something that is hard to find anywhere else in the world.
