Now is the perfect time to review your bucket list of travelers. However, before you select your destination based exclusively on a list, think about the kinds of experiences that really please you-culinary, history, culture, adventure. Then work out your perfect holiday from there.

Look for a well-established leader in experiential travel to offer you a taste of what it’s like to be a local and then some–whether it’s cooking courses in a Tuscan villa or bathing in a Thailand shrine with elephants.

“We immerse our visitors in the culture and customs of a region at Blue-Roads Touring Company,” says Ed Pettitt, General Manager.

“We bring them to locations that are hard or nearly impossible to plan and explore on their own. Fun, enriching visits to local households to share authentically prepared meals. Excursions to farms, orchards, vineyards, even treks to the frontlines of the most renowned battlefields in Europe.” If excellent literature moves you, you’ll get an intimate look at William Shakespeare, considered to be the biggest battlefield in the world. As part of the Blue-Roads ‘ Heart of England trip, you’re going to go to Stratford-upon-Avon to delve into the lives of the Bard, including his timbered childhood home and thatched cottage wife Anne Hathaway.

Gardening passionate, or just floral splendor love? The world-renowned Chelsea Flower Show of the Royal Horticultural Society brings you at the core of England’s biggest gardens ‘ sensory pleasures.

Is cuisine a matter of top or utmost? In choosing what to eat, drink and do, focus on authenticity and diversity above cost. Blue-Roads offers many alternatives to its visitors, such as sampling some of the finest street food in the world in Hanoi, Michelin-starred restaurants in Spain, or savoring fresh shellfish right off the ship in Gallipoli.

More delights than your palate are the greatest culinary journey. It also tells you and engages you. Explore how grapes are transformed into world-class varieties or how mozzarella is made from milk. Share in the High Tea tradition and ceremony. Culinary experiences take you together and foster cross-cultural comprehension.

An itinerary that is personally fulfilled raises your precious time off. Your personal space and moment of discovery are key to that. Seek the target specialist who strikes a balance between structured and downtime operations. Blue-Roads favors quality over amount, carefully curating a select amount of unforgettable experiences while also providing time for relaxation, recharge and relaxation.

Their cautious mixture of specific excursions, sightseeing and personal time prompts you to dig deeper into a destination’s many layers. Instead of simply returning home from a travel to – do list with goods checked off, they guarantee that you return with extended experience and understanding. For years afterwards, you’ll enjoy your journey-maybe if you try this recipe for delicious Eastern European pierogi or use the tongue-twisting sentence learned at the Welsh Language Heritage Centre.

Begin with what is important to you and what gives you pleasure as you build your next vacation.

So select an inspired, trusted tour partner like Blue-Roads. From there your unique journey will unfold.
