Take a Train ride in India

India’s roads can be scary and confusing for tourists who have never visited the country before. So why not ditch the car and hop onto a train instead. It’s a slower pace but more comfortable experience and you’ll see a wealth of beautiful landscapes and architecture. You can book a few nights in your own cabin or just buy a ticket for the day. You can also stop off at any number of South Indian hill stations and witness even more natural beauty. This is not just a standard train ride, so go with an open mind and soak up the culture and scenery during this incredible experience.

Take a Husky sleigh ride in Alaska

This is an activity that many people include in their bucket lists and it’s easy to see why. It a unique transport option that allows you to explore a vast winter wonderland. It’s something not many places have to offer and you’ll have a wonderful time looking at the mountains and forests. You may even see some wildlife that is unique to this part of the world such as bald eagles and grizzly bears.  Spending time with the dogs and listening to the tour guides informative talks will make this option even more mesmerising. You may have to plan your trip carefully as Alaska will have more snow during different times of the year.

  1. One time I went to visit a friend of mine by using Amtrak (a railroad system that travels to most of the states in the U.S.). I’ve always had a love for trains and traveling on the Amtrak was a scenic experience. I’ve been looking for excuses to travel on it again.

  2. A couple of good ones to try:

    Local buses in Latin America. Amazing places, amazing people – but do have plenty of time.

    Boats on any major river – the Nile, Mekong, etc. Just go with the flow.

    The slower you can go, the more of a place you will see.

    So keep travelling, and do enjoy it.
