Mark Milestones with Meaningful Travel
Updated: Mar 21, 2020
Parties are a great way to celebrate the big moments in life, but planning them can be stressful. Besides, life's milestones deserve monumental treatment. So why not take a holiday overseas? If you think it's not possible, here are a few reasons why it is, as well as some suggestions on where you should go.
Milestone Birthdays should be celebrated, whether you choose to do so alone or in a group. For peaceful reflection, try nature's serenity in the Rocky Mountains of Canada. But if you're more into partying till you drop, head to Barcelona, Spain, where salsa dancing in a bar should be on your list of must-dos.
In Recognition of Longtime Love
Does your significant other frequently forget your anniversary or, just as disappointing, make bland plans for the two of you? Make this anniversary one to remember with a romantic journey to Italy. The streets of Varenna and Verona are perfect for strolling hand-in-hand, sipping limoncello.
Remember the Past
Are you looking to travel with friends from high school or college? Instead of gathering to reminisce in the same spot, step outside your comfort zone — to Peru, for example! You all could hike the Inca Trail and be mesmerized by views of Machu Picchu.
Family First Vacations
Busy lives can make it hard for family members to get together regularly. But a fun trip overseas is a heck of an incentive! Invite Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles and cousins for a trip that they might never go on alone. Vietnam, with its busy cities and lovely sites (think Halong Bay), offers fun and engaging opportunities for family members of all ages.
Friendships Forged in Travel
Do you have a friend who was once your partner in travel, but it has been a long time since you all spent time together? Consider reconnecting overseas! Recreate that first trip, recalling the great time you had while making new memories.
