2020 is here and you should be keen to make new & epic travel memories. I know you probably have a long bucket list of countries that you want to visit. But in this new decade I want you to think out of the box where you travels are concerned. Visit countries you’ve never even dreamed of visiting. Break out of you comfort zone and travel into the unknown. To help you I put together 4 epic travel experiences you must try in this new decade.
As always, traveling is here to hold your hand and show you the error of your ways. Now that’s what I call a friend. As far as life-changing experiences go, you should live by one motto: the bigger, the better.
So, here are four epic travel ideas for you to kickstart the new decade with a bang that you’ll never forget!
1.Visit Machu Picchu
If you’ve been to any of the new Seven Wonders of the World, you might find a couple of them underwhelming. Without naming any names, the fact that they only take a couple of minutes to explore, or that locals are trying to sell you water and food, take away from the experience. Machu Picchu, although not untouched, has found the perfect balance between accessibility and history. Whether you do the Jungle Trek or the infamous Inca Trail, you’ll be awestruck by the ancient ruins that come into view as you walk through the gates.
2.Watch The Northern Lights
The Aurora Borealis is the most spectacular light show on the planet. And, there is no fake pyrotechnics to get the party started. The sun and the night sky do all the hard work, and all you need to do is stand, sit, or lie back and watch the vivid colors explode into view. Plus, it’s more than looking at the stars. To get to a viewpoint, you need to trek in the frozen tundra in minus temperatures. While it sounds tough, it makes the reward all the more amazing.
3. Scuba Dive
You can scuba dive in various destinations in the world, from Belize’s Blue Hole to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. The latter always makes its way onto lists of Aussie holiday ideas because it’s notorious. But the Blue Hole is a once-in-a-lifetime experience too. Regardless of the location, it’s worth doing now as pollution is changing the environment rapidly. To the point some of these underwater attractions won’t be around. As sad as it is, you can find the silver lining by donning a mask and oxygen tank and heading into the deep blue. That way, they’ll last forever in your memory. I’m all about making new memories and exciting memories this decade.
4. Travel Solo
You’re probably tired of preaching about the beauty of taking a trip without anyone else. And, although it does get annoying, the most frustrating part is that they are absolutely right! Whisper it quietly, but traveling alone is an excellent way to tick things off your bucket list. All while meeting new people and getting to know much more about yourself. When you travel in a group, you tend to do stuff that appeases everyone and you’re also more likely to just go with the flow. Well now is the time to start doing things for you. So why not start by booking one of these 4 epic travel experiences?.
Lots of Love
