3 Original activities on holiday that will stay with you for a long time
Do you usually do the tourist tours on holiday but would you like something different? Then we would like to give you 3 original activities for holidays that will stay with you for a long time to come. Beautiful lifelong memories are without a doubt the result of this. And the best? Sometimes you learn something from it!
Learning to cook locally
For the foodies among us: we have discovered a nice new website for you! Actually, it’s a website that’s suitable for everyone. Whether you like to cook or just like to eat well. Or you want to get to know new people or learn a new skill. For all these people we like to introduce Cookly.
Recently we got to know Cookly and we think you really need to get to know this website. Cookly makes it easy to book cooking workshops with locals on holiday. This way you learn how to create a local dish in an interactive way. You will get to know new people, make new dishes and support the locals. An activity we would like to do on every trip! Would you like to learn to cook locally? Then quickly go to their website and book one of their unique cooking classes or food experiencestoday.
Want to learn how to make a real tagine in Marrakech? Or sushi in Japan? Or how about guacamole in Mexico? You’ll learn from the best local chefs who know the real world cuisine. If even Lonely Planet, the world’s best-known travel magazine, is excited about it, it must be interesting. We are happy to test it out on our next trip.
Relaxing outside the hotel
Most people go on vacation to relax. We also like to choose destinations where we can alternate culture, adrenaline and fun with peace, relaxation and pure relaxation. Taking a pampering moment during your trip is not a bad idea. Everyone needs that. One is more common than the other, but everyone needs relaxation.
Relaxation is, of course, something very personal. We can only tell us what to do. What can recharge us on (a long) journey all the way back (yes, travel is sometimes also tiring!) is a massage or visit to the wellness. For us, this does not have to be in the form of a real wellness with a hundred different saunas. It may as well be outside the hotel by opting for a natural pool or mud bath, for example. Why not? It’s often free and it’ll at least be an activity that will keep you going longer than a day bobbing in the spa of your all-inclusive hotel. Get out of your comfort zone and opt for original, fun and sometimes challenging activities that you wouldn’t do right away.
A new challenge
It’s always nice to learn new skills, but why not do this more often when you’re on vacation? You are in a totally relaxed atmosphere, have time in abundance and often also feel like doing something active. You might as well spend that time learning a new skill.
Nowadays you can learn to dive, snorkel or sail on holiday and even get a diploma from it. Or you can learn to ride a quad bike in the desert or the jungle. Or how about a holiday where you are (partially) volunteering? All activities that will stay with you for a lifetime. And it’s not only fun to learn something new, but it also becomes unique because you’ve done it on the other side of the world, for example. For example, we have already learned to cook Mexican in Mexico, learned to ride a quad bike in America and been on a sailboat in South Africa. All of them challenging and engaging activities that have given us beautiful memories.
