Happy New Year! Here at Escape Travel, we are celebrating the beginning of 2014 by adding a few travel-related hopes and dreams onto our New Year’s resolutions. Next to lose a few pounds, we’ve added travel the world! Join us in making 2014 a year of adventure, by choosing your own travel resolutions. It could be as simple as discovering one new destination in your home country or learning the language of the city that sits at the top of your bucket list.
We’ve compiled our favourite travel resolutions to help you get started.
Experience a white Christmas
A dream on many eager travellers’ list is the opportunity to experience a white Christmas. Why not make 2014 the year it happens? The best part of this travel dream is the diversity of destinations you can choose from. Celebrate the silly season in New York and see the giant Christmas tree outside the Rockefeller Centre or travel to Europe and discover the magic of Germany’s famous Christmas markets.
Celebrate what’s in your own backyard
Not every holiday has to be an overseas adventure, choose to stay close to home and explore more of Australia’s shores in 2014. Spend time on the unspoilt beaches of the Gold Coast or discover the natural beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. Take the family on a big city adventure to Sydney or Melbourne or enjoy a skiing holiday in Canberra. Make your way through the rolling hills of Tasmania or discover the rugged outback of the Northern Territory.
Try a new type of holiday
Branch out and try a different type of holiday this year. Enjoy your first cruise, be that a short break cruise to New Zealand or a luxury river cruise through the highlights of France. Take a road trip and explore more of your own state or maybe tour the famous Route 66 in America. Enjoy a sightseeing tour where you will be guided through the best of your chosen destination or add a scenic rail trip to your itinerary. Consider one of Escape Travel’s Mystery Escapes for a true surprise.
Attend a famous festival or event
Make your travel resolution this year to participate in one of the world’s extravagant festivals or cultural events. Whether it’s enjoying the famous Thanksgiving Parade in New York and feasting on delicious roast turkey or joining the festivities at Oktoberfest in Munich, the world truly is your oyster. Celebrate St Patricks Day in Dublin or raise your glass to Hong Kong’s Wine and Dine Festival. Sports fans can attend the Football World Cup, Wimbledon or the Commonwealth Games.
Enjoy an adrenaline rush
Those interested in a heart pounding experience, should consider combining their adrenaline dreams with their travel resolutions. Sky diving or bungy jumping on the hit list? Head over to Queenstown and jump in style amidst New Zealand’s incredible scenery. Ski down the steep mountains of Switzerland or enjoy a scenic flight over the Bungle Bungles. Attempt to climb Mount Everest in Nepal or for those after a little less of a thrill, ride the wild roller coasters at Disneyland.
