How to Pick Activities on Vacation

Bring What You Love on Vacation

Planning activities on a trip will most likely incorporate some of the things you enjoy back home; foodies find local hotspots, animal lovers look for ways to see nature, and history buffs uncover cultural sights even off the beaten path. As Savvy travelers, it's key to remember that bringing back memories is not limited to material goods.

Instead of purchasing jewelry on a recent vacation, my accessory-loving friend chose to take a silversmithing workshop one afternoon. Not only was it significantly cheaper than a class in the US, but she also created this silver pendant to remember the experience overseas. Whether your favorite hobbies are athletic — try a hike or bike tour — or culinary — learn how to make, not just eat, the local cuisine — there's a way to bring your passions on vacation by brainstorming and seeking out one of these activities once you arrive. Trust me, you'll remember it long after you leave again.
