We live in a world where there is always a lot to explore aesthetically, culturally and socially. Travelling helps you build a connection with yourself and allow you to open your mind to new experiences. Many of us travel to get away from the noise and crowd of the city. We travel to various places and spend a long weekend or a few weeks, relaxing. However, some do not get a chance to go away for a long time due to various reasons including job pressure, college, school, family, etc.
For those who would like to merge travel into their daily lives as part of their leisure activity, there are many unexplored places around your city that you could locate which would serve the purpose of traveling within a limited time and amount.
Below are some of the ways you could plan a one day trip and fulfill your wish to travel.
- Long drives.
Long drives are perfect getaways to combine your love for driving and nature. You could hit the highway, avoid traffic, and enjoy the view. It will help you take your mind off workload and allow you to simply go with the flow. If you are staying in a busy city such as Mumbai, you can look for a highway amidst beautiful surroundings and stay there for a night. For example, you could take a long drive towards the SionPanvel Highway, book a hotel in Khargar for a night, or book a night at a resort and simply relax and cherish the drive back and forth from home.
Trekking is an excellent form of travelling that helps you physically connect with your surroundings. You can find a hilly area around your city or enquire about trekking groups that often organize one day treks in various places. I would even suggest a night trek, under the stars for a different kind of experience. Places like Nandi hills and Skandagiri in Bangalore offer these kinds of packages.
- Wine tasting.
This is a fun activity that allows you to enjoy the view of the wine yard set amidst hilly regions as well as educates you on various kinds of methods and process used to make wine. It will take you back in time with the tour encompassing of various trivia regarding the history of wine. You also get to taste different kinds of wine, which would be a nice change for your taste buds.
- Adventure sports.
If you are a person who loves the adrenaline rush, you can travel to places that offer various adventure sports such as Kayaking, River rafting, Parasailing, Rock climbing, Scuba diving, etc. around your city, depending on where you are located. These activities are usually conducted in the outskirts of the main city hence allowing you to travel and have fun at the same time.
In conclusion, one doesn’t always have to tour for days together to experience the joy of travelling. Enjoy the little time you can keep aside from your daily routine through these fun ideas to have a blast.
