    The Star’s Unique Vacation Ideas … Now for Something Completely Different

    What’s your idea of a vacation? For many Americans it may be a trip to an exotic beach, a week in Paris or perhaps a quiet retreat to the mountains. Here are some suggestions that are the star’s unique vacations designed to enrich the mind, heart and soul.

    Expanding the Mind

    Nothing fires up the mind like learning something new, as long as you’re not trapped sitting in a classroom. So, imagine learning French through a three-week immersion program in Quebec through active engagement with its people, music and food. Or, take a journey to meet England’s most renowned authors—Dickens, Hardy, Christie—by visiting where they lived, worked and found inspiration, guided and informed by an expert each step of the way.

    The possibilities are endless, but your journey can start by visiting Road Scholar, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing a wealth of experiential learning opportunities.

    Enriching the Heart

    Do you feel that the necessities of work keep you from fully exploring your personal passion? Why not spend your next vacation engrossed in that special interest that gets your heart pumping?

    It may be a photographic journey in Patagonia, or a food and wine tour through Spain and Portugal. Maybe your preference is for cooking lessons from renowned chefs in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy or birding in Costa Rica. Well, you get the point. Just Google your personal passion plus vacation, and the adventure begins!

    Nourishing the Soul

    The greatest escape may be when you travel outside of yourself and truly enter the world of others. There are an almost infinite number of ways to get there. Perhaps it’s teaching English in Malawi or working with special needs children in Cape Town, South Africa. If you have good Excel skills and finance knowledge, then a trip to Ghana to empower women through microfinance may be the right fit for you.

    So, whether your soul is filled by kindness to people, animals or places, visit Go Volunteering to begin changing the world on your next vacation.
