With so many of our hotly anticipated travel plans thrown out of the window over the past year, it seems that the only way to make up for it is to plan one almighty vacation, or a selection of rather impressive trips away. We have plenty of ideas on where to go, but if you’re looking to make your holiday an unforgettable one, from the moment you leave your home and for the rest of your life, then you will want to focus on all of the aspects that make up the trip. Preparation is key, as once you arrive you will want to simply enjoy yourself and focus on those moments that will stay with you forever. Here’s how to make your luxury trip truly unforgettable.
Take photography classes
Everyone who travels takes a camera with them so that they are able to capture a selection of moments that they want to remember, whether this is with the latest professional piece of kit or the built option on your smartphone. You’re expecting this to be quite the holiday so why not enrol in some photography classes before you set off and learn how to take the best photos, whether of people or landscapes? And when you’re home you can upload your images to photo editing app retouchme.com and enjoy the perfect photos to look back on and dream about your amazing experiences.
Treat your self to some new clothes and accessories
Arranging a holiday provides you with the perfect excuse to ditch the loungewear and grab yourself some new clothes for your chosen paradise. With new swimwear brands popping up all the time, you’ll be sure to find a selection of beachwear to suit you. Or perhaps you’re heading off on more of an adventurous escape, if so, you’ll need to ensure you’re kitted out with all the gear you need, wherever it is you are headed.
Travel first class
Truly treat yourself with a journey to remember – it’s not just the destination that should provide you with the smiles and hospitality, the journey can play its part too. Opting for a first-class flight, train journey and/or private transfers along the way will ensure that you and your travel companions (unless you’re escaping alone that is) are treated to the best service, lounges and extras you could hope for.
Stay in a suite
Make sure that you have upgraded yourself to the best possible suite in the hotel. Providing all of the mod cons, luxuries and extras you could need as well as bespoke services (think chefs to cook for you, limousine transfers, butlers, and the like) executive lounge access, top-notch views and more, the suite is place to stay.
Take a private tour with a local tour guide
There’s no better way to explore the place you’re visiting than with a local tour guide who is not only passionate about the place in which they live, but can provide you with access to monuments and special sights that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to gain full access to. Private tours are the prime option as you can ask all of the questions you want to ask that relate to your interests.
Head to the best restaurants around
If a holiday to remember just has to include the best food going then be sure to seek out the finest restaurants in your locale. Your tour guide should be able to give you the lowdown on where the locals like to eat, while the Michelin Guide is always a reliable source of information when it comes to fine dining.
Explore the locale from various angles
To make some memorable moments, make sure you get out and explore your destination from various angles. Whether this is by Jeep, boat, helicopter, on foot or all of the above, get as many experiences in as you can – you won’t regret it! Just take that camera with you and expect the unexpected as you discover your new natural surroundings.
