The decision of where to go on vacation is a big one. Of course, you want it to be an enjoyable experience, and you would like the people you are with to have a good time as well. Nevertheless, many different considerations must be made before choosing a destination – some of which might not even come up when looking at pictures online or reading about the place in books. In this blog post, we will talk about all the things you should consider when deciding on your next vacation destination:
-What type of food do they eat
-Budgeting of the trip
-How clean their water is
-Whether or not they have wheelchair access in mountainous regions
First and foremost, it is important to find out what the food and water situation is like. Even if you are going for a spring break vacation somewhere warm and sunny, you will still need to eat food once in a while! You do not want to get sick from drinking or eating something that is not sanitary – as that can ruin your entire trip.
Unfortunately, some countries have very dirty water at this point in time – so much so that they would actually prefer it if you did not drink their tap water at all! It’s important to start researching your destination as early as possible: carry around a guidebook and flip through it when sitting down for lunch or dinner, ask everyone who has been there before, or just do a quick internet search on your destination.
You will then be able to find out if the tap water is safe to drink there or what types of food or drinks you should steer clear from in that place.
Secondly, you should take your budget into account when choosing a destination. The beautiful island of Cyprus might be the cheapest country in Europe to visit, but if you are used to traveling within South America, it might not feel like much of a vacation at all! Look around and find out how much costs are there for accommodation, food, drinks, getting around before committing to anything.
If you are going somewhere that is known for having a lot of mountainous regions, take into account whether or not you will need a wheelchair at any point in time. If you plan on biking in a mountainous area in Asia, for example, it would probably be easier to use your own wheelchair instead of trying to rent one from there – especially since the terrain could change very quickly! Even if you know for sure that renting a wheelchair will not be necessary where you’re going, still ahead and bring along your own folding wheelchair with you. You can never be too careful – especially if it is somewhere very far away from home!
Another important factor to consider when choosing a vacation destination is what diseases are prevalent in the area. Not all countries have the same health risks, so do some research before booking that flight! If you have never been to an equatorial country before, then it would probably be best not to go visit one for your first time out of the country. Malaria and Zika are just two of many different types of illnesses that very tropical regions tend to have. Some places may also have parasites, rabies (if you’re going where there are wild animals), and various other things like Dengue (buzzing mosquitoes) and Ebola (a virus). Getting vaccinated well in advance is the best way to prepare for this sort of thing if you are going somewhere where any or all of these diseases are present.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly: make sure you can actually get there! If your destination is on the other side of the world, then it would probably be difficult to get there without flying. Some places are also known for being extremely hard to fly into – as they may not have an airport for planes to land at. Those who need wheelchairs should definitely try to avoid places like Antarctica, as getting around there would be very difficult with a wheelchair. At some point in time, you will need to simply rent a car or take public transportation if you want to drive across town – so travel lightly and pack up all your belongings before heading out of your house! Journeys can take a long time when you have little to nothing with you – so always remember the essentials when going somewhere far away from home!
When deciding on a vacation destination, there are many different things to consider: what the food and water situation is like, whether or not you will need a wheelchair in mountainous regions, and what diseases are prevalent. Finally, make sure that you can get there! If your destination is very far from where you live then, it would probably be best just to fly – pack light and bring along all of your belongings before driving out of your house!
