How to choose your next trip
Traveling is one of the most fulfilling things we can experience in life, but most of us are not aware of it until we start doing it: once we begin, it’s a one-way ticket; our life changes completely. Travelling makes us more knowledgeable, more open-minded and cultured, and of course, we can make friends all over the world, which is another reason why we keep looking forward to visiting new places.
There are many determinants when it comes to choosing your next stop, even taking Arabic classes in New York could make you choose one place over another one. If you want to travel but still don’t know what your next destination should be, here are some ways to figure it out.
What kind of weather do I like?
This might depend on the weather you have where you live. In general, people from England are used to cold weather and so they can tolerate low temperatures more than someone who lives, say, in Latin America. So what kind of weather would you like to feel? Maybe you want to see the snow in Iceland, Ontario (Canada) or Moscow (Russia)? If so, you should find out when the snow starts melting. Perhaps, however, your idea of a perfect trip goes hand in hand with Caribbean weather. In such case, any Caribbean country such as Cuba, Venezuela or Ecuador would be perfect. There are some places in southern Europe with hot weather as well, such as Crete (Greece), Hvar (Croatia) or the French Riviera.
What kind of activities do I want to try?
Maybe you want to do a lot of shopping, in which case Miami (USA) could be a good choice; or perhaps you just want to be away from the noise in a place located in the outskirts of the city. Maybe you want to try out sports like mountain climbing at Mount Thielsen (USA). Try to think of the activities you’d like to do during your trip; this will be a key factor when it comes to choosing the perfect place.
What languages do I speak or want to learn?
You may want to use your trip to learn or practice a foreign language you already know. For people taking Chinese classes, New York seems like a perfect place, as this is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Of course, you can also go straight to the point and visit China, or the place where the language you learn or want to learn is spoken by natives.
