Fancy a New Experience?

Do something different 2

The other day while watching TV I saw a 95 year old woman skydiving. It was a birthday present from her family. She threw herself into the air and looked as though she was having the time of her life. She wasn’t even on holiday!

Even though new experience holidays are all the rage you can have a new experience at any time of year. There is probably something very close to home that you could do this very weekend, such as hot air ballooning, horse riding, climbing, or perhaps you’d enjoy wine tasting or learning a new skill.

DoSomethingDifferent is a company that specializes in finding and booking you into great experience days, trips, and excursions. Their site is full of wonderful ideas of things to do all over the world. Their activities are often much cheaper than you would pay as an individual turning up to buy tickets. This is because they can book things in bulk and secure discounts.

New experience holidays are all the rage, which is not surprising given that more and more people are looking for excitement and adventure while they’re on vacation. People are quite simply sick and tired of sitting on beaches! Research shows that adventure holidays are on the rise, which is great news.

Some excursions are so popular that it makes sense to book them well in advance. Doing so could avoid bitter disappointment especially if you have travelled a long way in order to do the activity. Imagine going skiing and finding there is a waiting list for the equipment you need to hire? Or being in New York and not able to go on that fantastic helicopter ride after all!

Also, booking in advance will save you time if you are away during the popular months of the year because that’s when everyone else travels. You could waste a lot of time queuing to get into museums or events unless you have tickets in advance. It’s a great feeling when you can go to the front of the queue. I did just that when I was in Rome at the coliseum.

Finally, new experience days make fantastic gifts have driving day experiences for example, and even have wonderful ideas for wedding gifts.
