Been thinking of traveling abroad recently, it seems a shame to only rely on travel agents and tour groups to see foreign lands.  Some of the best trips experienced by travelers overseas are trips which involved activities that encourage a combination of personal, spiritual and professional growth for the traveler.  There has been increased interest in traveling abroad over the last few years with many foregoing the typical travel agent tour with large groups of people that board tour buses and visiting historic site.  These types of vacations have their place our bucket list considering stepping outside of traditional boundaries and consider doing one of these custom travel events.

Many active travelers consider trips that encourage exploration and allow for deep reflection on life and goals for the future.  If you are traveling to a foreign country, plan a hiking trip through the country.  If you do a little research, it is possible to find yoga retreats that incorporate daily activities on the vacation which can include hiking or snorkeling.  The participation in the excursions is not required but they do offer the participants the opportunity to see the country being visited not necessarily through the eyes of a tourist but rather an inhabitant of the earth.

Similar trips can be planned that include overseas travel to under-developed areas offering the travel the opportunity to improve the lifestyles of residents in underdeveloped nations. Some spend weeks at a time establishing clean water for drinking or cooking. Others are involved in building schools, roads or homes for the residents of area.  All the while, offering the vacationers the opportunity to give back to others while learning to appreciate how modern conveniences in our lives are not afforded to all.

Consider doing a continuing education class in Italy or France. This gives the participant an opportunity to interact with similar trained global professionals.  It offers everyone to learn how each group chooses address and deal with issues in their industry while having an opportunity during their downtime to do tourist activities and be able to write off the expenses.

Regardless of the type of trip you plan on doing, remember each allows you to plan outside of the planned activities and immerse yourself in the culture.  So bring your cocktail dresses and dungarees with hiking boots to trek the trails of Machu Picchu.  When you are looking for apparel that fits your adventure check out: A’GACI for your particular needs be it, sportswear, casual or dressy clothes.
