Traveling is a perfect opportunity to visit places that you would not normally go to at home. Whether you’re interested in trying out new things to create amazing memories, want to try unusual foods that aren’t available in your area, or even want to legally do something that’s against the law back at home, you can find a huge array of options available to choose from when you travel. Here is a selection of fun and interesting things that you might want to consider adding to your itinerary.
Smoking cannabis is legal in some parts of the world, but against the law in many others. If you are traveling to a state where recreational marijuana is legal, for example Nevada, Washington or Colorado to name a few, visiting cannabis dispensaries is an unusual, but fun activity to add to your list. Whether you have smoked weed before or are about to try it for the first time, being able to do so legally and safely is possible depending on where you are traveling to. If you’re planning to travel outside of the U.S., possessing or smoking marijuana is not an offence in the Netherlands (in designated cafes), Portugal, Spain (in a private space) and Uruguay, as long as you are over the age of 18.
When on vacation, many people enjoy taking part in thrilling activities that they’re sure to remember for the rest of their life. For example, the thought of jumping out of a plane might not be something that crosses your mind at home, but when on vacation it could easily be one of the first things that you’d like to do. Whether you are traveling within the U.S. or abroad, you can find a huge range of skydiving schools and instructors who’ll be able to show you the ropes. You might even enjoy it that much that you do it again once you return home!
If you’re traveling to a country that offers unique and interesting cuisines, then why not consider visiting a local cooking class? If you are a foodie, then no doubt you will be basing your travel plans on the kinds of dishes that you’ll be able to try during your trip. Attending a cooking class is a fun way to spend a day during your vacation, either on your own or with other members of your travel party. And, when you return home, you’ll be able to seriously impress your family and friends with your new international cooking skills.
Get off the Beaten Path
If you are traveling on a budget, you are probably looking for inexpensive ideas to inspire your itinerary. If you enjoy traveling to areas that aren’t very touristy and exploring places that are mainly visited by the locals, then you might want to consider free activities such as camping or hiking for your vacation. This provides you with a great way to see all the best sights, on a tight budget.
