If you haven’t already got a travel bucket list, then why not? It’s a great way to see and do things that you’ve always wanted to do but can be easily forgotten about if they’re not noted down. Whether you’re traveling away this summer or having a staycation, here are five things to tick off on your travel bucket list.
Do An Escape The Room Challenge
There’s certainly be an increase in these sort of challenges because they’ve proved to be great fun for hen and stag parties, corporate team building days and just as an excuse to see friends or family. You’ll definitely find plenty local to you, and they come in a range of themes from a serial killer escape room to jail escape rooms. It’s all good fun, and it’s a great way of testing your skills in a variety of ways.
Face A Fear
Facing your fears sounds scary, but in fact, once you’ve done it, you’ll find you’ve grown as an individual. We all have different fears, whether that’s climbing up a mountain, jumping off one, or holding a creepy crawly. Facing a fear is something you can definitely do while traveling, and there will probably be more opportunities to do so than you’d get where you currently live.
Swim With Sharks Or Dolphins
They may appear scary, and there are many horror stories that come with sharks, but they’re actually quite misunderstood and like other animals are likely to be more afraid of humans than we are of them. Swimming with sharks or dolphins can be such a rewarding experience and a chance to go up close and personal with these magnificent animals.
Visit Somewhere New
A lot of us will find comfort in traveling to places we feel familiar with. Some will go to the same place multiple times in their life, which is fine but it might be a good idea to branch out and visit somewhere new. It can help you discover different cultures and cuisines, and it’s an enriching experience in life to try somewhere completely new.
Take A Road Trip
Road trips are a great way of seeing things from a different perspective. When traveling, there’s only a certain amount you can see, but with a car, it’s much easier to get around and to explore places you may not have been able to otherwise visit. When hiring a car for a road trip, it’s worth making sure you have the experience of driving in a foreign country and that you feel confident in driving in unknown territory. Plenty of research should be done on driving etiquette and what to look out for.
So that’s five more things you can tick off your bucket travel list this summer. Visit somewhere new and expand your horizons. Take a road trip to see more of what that area has to offer and face a fear that you’ve always wanted to tackle. Hopefully, you’ll come back from your adventures as someone who’s grown because of it!
