Become a volunteer tourist
You may have already planned or starting to plan your trips this year. Add something meaningful to your holiday by taking part in a volunteering initiative in the destination you are going to. Work with local communities, teach kids, or take part in a sustainable development project - whatever suits your skills. Spend from as little as a day of your holiday to do something for those who need your help. Makes for a lovely holiday story, and the love of some extremely thankful people.
Have an authentic experience
Don’t just get on the sightseeing bus tour and take pictures and come back. With Cleveland Collection we can help you take your holiday beyond the run of the mill sights, and give you a truly immersive experience on your holiday. Visit some of the hidden gems and rarely seen sights of any destination you wish to travel to.
Pick a destination that inspires you
Get out of your comfort zone, and push yourself - this is on most people’s resolution list. Well, travel is one easy way of doing this, pick a destination that inspires and challenges you. If going by yourself seems too daunting, ask a friend or choose a group tour to go on.
Pick a new skill
Travelling is a great opportunity to learn a new skill while having loads of fun. Learn how to - make the perfect pho, wakeboard, do the oil lamp dance in Burma or the tiger dance in Japan, create Batik prints, photograph with a specialist tour...the list is endless. You will end up not only having fun but also start on a new hobby!
