The Concept of Value Can Be Placed in Luxury Travel Destinations

“Your life-book should be written with many romantic luxury vacations within to spike the pages”

Traveling is in our blood. We have been conditioned and we desire to visit faraway lands, experience challenging new cultures and terrain to test our stamina, and to partake in different cultural experiences. We are inquisitive by nature and traveling proves to heightened our curiosity.

With the ho-hum existence we have going from home to office to home, rinse and repeat, travel can break the monotony. But daydreaming about the possibilities is not anywhere near the fun of the real experience. So how can one change this issue?

Researching online can uncover some interesting luxury travel packages or even discount luxury travel experiences yet some costs are still high. There is value available provided one understands the overall ‘big-picture’. Think beyond one vacation to a lifetime of vacations.

Luxury travel destinations are bountiful and calling to you yet you really don’t know how to swing it. Pushing off till next year could be a disaster, you need to get away. Stress never lets up when a boss is yelling, a partner is nagging, or the four walls of your place are closing in. How to escape?

First one must remove the ‘inside-the-box’ thinking that stress places on our minds. Focus on a lifetime of vacations to luxurious destinations, experiencing many different cultures and places. Things are going to occur over many years, maybe twice each year and you have to understand the overall implications of this decision.

If taking an elaborate vacation this year causes none for several years, that is hardly worth the effort. However, if one were to position themselves so that these types of vacations could be experienced every year, the mind could release the stress like white doves.

Value is the key and finding value in luxury travel destinations should be your goal. Value is evident in discount luxury travel every day but most do not know where to look, thereby, missing out on some very interesting text in the different chapters of their ‘life-book’.

What chapters need filler experiences in your ‘life-book’?

Adventure Travel to Australia and New Zealand – 5 Best Adventure Destinations

Top Australia Adventure Travel Destinations

Kangaroo Island Australia Adventure

Kangaroo Island is known as the Australian “Galapagos” because of its rich diversity of wildlife. Take a guided night tour to see the little penguins march out of the sea to their homes along the coastline. Stop in at the Seal Bay Conservation Park where you’ll see the rare Australian sea lion. A hike through Flinders Chase National Park will get you up close to kangaroos, possums, echidna, koalas and platypus in the wild.

The Australian Outback Adventure

This is the rugged interior of Australia and home to red hills, fiery sunsets and a dramatic sense of spaciousness. Here you can hike the Aboriginal Dreaming Trail with an Aboriginal guide to experience the local culture and history. You can also hike, bike, take a scenic flight or 4-wheel drive tour of the breath-taking landscapes of gorges adorned with aboriginal art, mountains, caves, waterfalls and canyons. Here you’ll also see plenty of wildlife in their beautiful natural settings.

Top New Zealand Adventure Travel Destinations

Auckland New Zealand Adventure

Bungy jumping is a tradition that has been practiced in the South Pacific for hundreds of years as an initiation ritual. But commercial bungy jumping was first developed in New Zealand in 1986 and continues to be a national tradition there.

You’ll find opportunities to indulge your need for this heart-stopping thrill just about everywhere. In Auckland you can bungy jump from one of the many bridges over the bay, or try New Zealand’s highest jump – 209.9 yards straight down from the top of Sky Tower. While you’re staying in the “City of Sails” you can also indulge in first-class food and wine, cultural events and shopping.

A calmer adventure that you could take the whole family on includes seeing the magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves. A guided tour takes you through limestone chambers and includes a silent boat trip through the glowworm grotto. You’ll marvel at Mother Nature’s light display as you glide beneath the lights of thousands of glowworms suspended from the cave ceiling.

Queenstown New Zealand Adventure

From crystal clear Lake Wakatipu across to The Remarkables mountain range, Queenstown’s environment is majestic, awe-inspiring and almost unbelievable. A great way to start your vacation and get an overview of the landscape is to take the gondola up Bob’s Peak.

Exploring Queenstown’s Skippers Road is an adventure in itself. Hand carved out of solid rock, the road twists and turns around steep cliffs with magnificent views. Because the road is so dangerous, it is only accessible by guided tour. The area hosts a number of adventure sports. Depending on your appetite for thrills, you can take a ride on the flying fox, go white water rafting or get a vertical view of the canyon attached to a bungy. Less terrifying options include blasting along the Shotover River in a jet boat, walking across a historic pipeline or a visit to Winky’s Museum.

Some of the other outdoor adventures in Queenstown that will have you playing on the edge include:

  • Heli-skiing, skiing and snowboarding
  • Bungy jumping
  • Canyon swinging
  • Hiking
  • Rock climbing
  • Mountain biking
  • Horse riding
  • Sky diving
  • Hang gliding
  • Parapente, or para-gliding
  • Jetboating
  • Kayaking
  • Sailing
  • Golfing
  • Gold panning
  • Canyoning

Rotorua New Zealand Adventure

Rotorua sits squarely on the Pacific Ring of Fire, and is home tribal home of the Te Arawa people, who settled in lakeside geothermal areas more than 600 years ago. Geysers, boiling mud pools, marae stays, hangi feasts, an authentic pre-European Maori village and indulgent spa therapies will provide plenty of activities to write home about. Refresh your spirit with a day outdoors trout fishing, kayaking, waterskiing, swimming, hiking or mountain biking. And if it’s excitement you crave, you can challenge your spirit with adrenalin-charged extreme activities such as sky-diving, jet boating and zorbing.

These are just a sampling of some of the outdoor adventures available in Australia and New Zealand. There’s also world-renowned white water kayaking, some of the best diving in the world on The Great Barrier Reef, and a multitude of hiking, biking, ballooning, canoeing and other adventures to be had.
