It’s no secret that people’s holiday plans have been somewhat thrown out of the window due to the coronavirus pandemic. This isn’t exactly new information either, given the amount of time that it’s been happening by this point. However, traveling again means that you can consider more creative holidays than perhaps you would have before.
When you look through this lens, your options actually become much broader and more varied than you might have felt that they were before. If you’re someone who usually sticks to the same kind of sunny beach holiday abroad, this is a terrific time to mix it up and add some variety – at least until things are smooth enough to do what you’d normally do.
Consider a Caravan Trip
This might not have been something that would have even crossed your mind. Still, caravan holidays seem to have piqued the interest of many during a year of tumultuous holiday plans, so it might be something that could be getting more popular once again. If you’re used to accommodation that affords slightly more luxuries than what you suspect a caravan might offer, you might want to research some tips to help you through the process of sleeping in a caravan. It shouldn’t take too much adjustment, and you might even find that it offers you an experience that encourages you to seek out similar holidays in the future.
Acquiring or renting a caravan also opens up the possibility of a road trip to you as well. Embarking on this kind of adventure with a few friends might be something you’ve never tried before. Still, it could not only open your eyes to several places around the country that you have yet to visit but also help you push yourself further out of your comfort zone. There are other, more extreme ways to do this, even when talking about holiday ideas, but a road trip with your friends is an excellent place to start if it gives you that same feeling of anticipation and excitement.
Taking an activity holiday could be another way for you to get out of your comfort zone a bit. While what might first come to mind is the thought of extreme sports or other such things that may well be entirely alien to you, it doesn’t even have to be that much of an adjustment. Even just going somewhere that you’ve never been before, renting a place to stay, and taking several hikes around the area can constitute an active holiday.
However, if you wanted to lean more into the activity side of things, you could travel around the country’s coasts and engage in water sports in various locations. If this, again, is unfamiliar to you, you could start with something more relaxing, such as kayaking, before experimenting with sports and pastimes that might be considered slightly more dangerous or ‘extreme’. In the end, you must do what you enjoy.
A holiday is an opportunity to indulge in some scrumptious food and drink, but most of the time, it won’t be the sole purpose of your trip. However, foodie holidays are becoming a more and more popular option for people looking to treat their tastebuds. From vineyards to Michelin star restaurants and market street food stalls, you can travel around the country trying different delicacies and experiences. If you prefer to try new food and drink and taking Instagram-worthy pictures, this is the holiday for you.
To have the best foodie holiday, research is going to be vital. Start by looking up the best restaurants and eateries in the UK and must-visit foodie hotspots; you’ll find plenty of articles that detail the places you have to visit. Then, think about the type of experience you want. You might be keen to try eating in the dark or book theatrical dining. In addition to thinking about what you want to do and what Google suggests, ask friends and family for recommendations. You could even ask the locals in the area of the country you are visiting, too, as you could find a hidden gem. No matter where your foodie holiday takes you, always remember to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
