How does your perfect vacation look like? I find that the answer is vastly different for everyone.
Even my preferences have changed over the course of my life. When I was little, I was extremely lazy on holiday, didn’t like to walk, and overall wanted to do nothing.
This changed completely. In my 20s I was all about super hardcore sightseeing. The more could be seen the better. Walking all day was no problem. I just wanted some nice picture of the most famous sights.
Now, it’s changing again. I’ve become more relaxed. I feel I can come back to a place and don’t have to cover every single bit of it on the first go. I want some down time in between.
I still can’t go on pure beach holiday though. I remember travelling to Mallorca with a group of friends during college. All we’d do was drink and party all night, and spend the day at the beach. The parties were fun, but I was utterly bored doing nothing at the beach all day.
The perfect holiday for me has a healthy combination of fun, adventure, sightseeing, and relaxation. There needs to be a bit of everything.
There are just so many great places to explore in this world. I’ve seen 40 countries so far and I’m not going to stop travelling any time soon.
