In this blog post, we will discuss some summer travel ideas that will help you rejuvenate and refresh your mind, body, and soul. So what are you waiting for? Start planning your summer vacation today!

After a couple of hard years - a pandemic and global unrest, not to mention whatever normal everyday life stuff has been thrown at you - it’s time to book a holiday. If you’ve come to this page, you’re probably looking for some inspiration on where to go, what to do and what to see. Well, you’ve come to the right place. This article will give you some ideas on exciting travel ideas for this summer. 


Try a Cycling Trip

Have you ever spied a convoy of cyclists flying down a road and wondered how it would feel? Or maybe you already are a keen cyclist. Either way, a cycling holiday is a great way to spend the summer. You don’t have to be a keen sportsman to do it, either. All you need is a basic ability to ride a bike and a good attitude. Then, you can join an American or European cycling holiday and experience whizzing through the countryside seeing the sites, drinking in the culture and tasting local delights. It’s a perfect holiday to do if you’d like to try traveling on your own, too. 


Experience Different Cultures 

If you’re looking to expand your horizons this summer, then consider focusing on seeing and experiencing different cultures. This could be anything from trying Amish country tours to trekking the Himalayas with sherpa guides or reading your way across Paris. It can be incredibly relaxing and freeing to immerse yourself in a different culture - as you learn about other people and the way they live, it can put your life into perspective and really expand your horizons. And you never know the people you’re going to meet! 


Stay Local  

Take a look at your local area, county or country. Are there any locations you’ve never been to that tourists seem to flock to? If you’re looking to economize this summer then you could have a whirlwind trip on your doorstep. If you’re struggling for ideas, do some research as if you’d never been to where you live before. Where do the blogs and websites tell you to go and see? Can you stay in a boutique hotel or AirBnB to make it feel more special? 


Go Green 

Making the effort to go somewhere lush and green can make a world of a difference to your mental health and general attitudes this summer. By taking yourself out of the hustle and bustle and grounding yourself in nature - whether that’s the rainforests of South America or the Ligurian Alps in Italy - you can experience one of the most exciting, life-enhancing holidays. If you prioritize a green, nature-filled holiday then you might surprise yourself with how exciting and relaxing it is. If you’re struggling with your mental health, then this kind of break could be a genuinely helpful experience. 


Try A Music Festival Trip With Your Buddies Again!

It's been a while since we've been able to go out and have fun with a group of folks and while the COVID isn't gone completely, the summer is a great time to attend outdoor music festivals with friends again and blow off some steam.

Hopefully, you have found some ideas or inspiration for your holiday this summer. Just remember, wherever you go, as long as you’re enjoying yourself and taking time off, then it’s an exciting holiday.
