Take an Adventurous Vacation
By Loreal Oliver
Looking for a new and exciting getaway? Why not try something completely different for an overnighter, a weekend, or a week or longer? Escape the traditional inns and highways of modern civilization and head for the wilds of distant continents, faraway oceans, and breathtaking vistas. Go alone or take along a good friend or close relative. You can even join up with a group of new acquaintances as you explore the unknown in untold combinations and destinations.
At Intrepid Travel (www.intrepidtravel.com), you can have your choice of many unusual locations and activities. Whether you are at the beginning or intermediate level of a particular skill like canoeing or hiking, expert guides can design a trip to match you with likeminded travelers so that everyone has a good time. You will visit exotic, off-the-beaten-path locations and share the food and customs of the local inhabitants. Whether you visit New Zealand, Asia, or South America, there is a group of people waiting to experience new thrills that will not be quite complete without your presence.
Another agency that will build tours around your skills, interests, or abilities is Adventure Travel Tips. With the help of experienced guides, you can plan a delightful trip that will let you savor Old World charm or New World wilderness as you map an itinerary of challenging delights. Learn the geographical area that you will visit, find out how to pack and what to bring, and get the cheapest fares and hotel rates as well as the most indigenous conditions, if that is what you prefer. Otherwise, you can book lodging at competitive rates and take unusual side trips that are not for everyone that might include a European cooking skill, a mountainous bike course, a deep sea snorkeling dip, or an educational walking tour. You will meet the regular residents, take in local color, and experiment with an entirely different way of living than you have heretofore encountered.
Your adventure guide will point to helpful reading or resources as well as prepare you for packing and planning this unparalleled vacation. You may event want to talk a co-worker or friend into coming if you don't have a special family member or pal to take with you. Why put off the adventure of a lifetime when you can work with travel experts to make it happen now? Trips like these are not as expensive as you might think. All they take is a little bit of forethought and organization to let the fun begin.
