Daydream Fuel: 3 Types of Holidays to Start Saving for NOW!
At this point, staycations are no longer a necessity, so people are FINALLY allowed to resume their daydreaming about once-in-a-lifetime holidays – or even get to work on planning them!
Whether you’ve developed a serious case of cabin fever or are simply searching for more holidays to add to your ever-growing list of vacations to take before you kick the proverbial bucket, this article has something for everyone.
A Private Island Getaway
Let’s start off with the true stuff of daydreams: private island getaways. A private island getaway is the best kind of getaway because they typically offer a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. Rest and relaxation? Check! Private chefs? Check! Water sports? Check! Spa treatments? Check!
On top of having a plethora of things to do, see, and taste, private islands are exactly that: private. This means that you don’t need to worry about the safety of yourself and your companions, and you also don’t need to worry about sharing precious beach space with strangers.
Privacy, seclusion, incredible views, accommodation options like luxury villas or charming chalets, countless things to do – talk about having everything you could dream of in one place, right?
An Activity Holiday
Activity holidays are best suited for groups of friends or those who have children as R&R is the last thing that these holidays bring with them. As the name suggests, activity holidays are breakaways that involve you spending your time doing a number of activities.
When you go on an activity holiday, you’re likely to be participating in a different event or excursion each day. The specific activities will vary according to the destination, but classic examples include:
- Horse riding on the beach
- Going on walking tours
A Farm Stay
If the first two types of holidays are a little too luxurious for you, a farm stay may be just the breath of fresh air you need. Again, this type of holiday is aptly named: you stay on a farm. A farm stay is the perfect holiday for people who are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city while also learning about the inner workings of a working farm.
Farm stays are classed as ecotourism, agritourism, agrotourism, and geotourism which makes them a great holiday choice for the environmentally conscious. Though they’ve been around since the 1980s, farm stays are seeing a resurgence in popularity all over the world. Typical farm stay activities include:
- Feeding animals
- Collecting eggs
- Milking cows
- Picking fruit
- Plowing fields
From luxurious island escapes that are difficult to imagine to relaxed farm stays that introduce you to a new version of yourself, there really is a holiday for everyone to look forward to. Have you now got enough material to fuel your daydreams for the next couple of months until you book your ticket, passport in hand, and begin your next adventure? You’re welcome.
