Teenagers, kids, oldies, everyone loves to go for a vacation. As a father of two, I realized how important it is to keep my young boys engaged and enthusiastic on long breaks. One day, my younger son said to me “Dad I am bored, let’s do something exciting”. This is when I decided to plan something new and adventurous for my son. Since we came back from our trip, I witnessed a change in the attitude of both my children. They were given a chance to try new things, meet new people, and make new friends. It was all possible because we had chosen an Active Holiday this year instead of the traditional beach vacation that we normally go for. When we arrived for our holiday, there was great anticipation amongst all of us. We were greeted by the clear blue sky and then the travel representative of the company gave us a briefing of what to expect on our trip. The hotel boasted spectacular surroundings, rich in history and culture. It was the perfect setting for us to relax after our long haul flight.
As I remember, during the trip, there were no mood swings, and all arguments were replaced with excited conversation, and we all pulled together trying out the various activities offered. While planning for such a trip, I had kept in mind the interests of my teenagers. Instead of my teens relying on the usual rotation of sleeping, eating, video games and social networking sites, my children actually tried something new. Revelling in their independence, they were really spoilt for choice with a wide range of activities available. They were able to choose from mountain biking, snorkelling, windsurfing, and horse. For my boys, it was actually very refreshing to be in an environment where they were able to make new friends who were all sharing the same experiences. Without a doubt, active holidays kept my teenagers happy throughout our entire trip. The numerous amounts of activities enjoyed kept my teenagers engaged and there was never a dull moment. Every day we were briefed and kitted out for the activities ahead. Moreover, the instructors were incredibly good with the kids. Every day we got to experience the beauty of our spectacular location.
During our stay, we chose to find out a bit more about the town’s local history and we managed to narrow down the location where we wanted to go walking. Knowing that such a trip was the first of its kind for us, and realizing that we had taken a long haul flight to get here, the guides suggested a beautiful location for us with some stunning scenery. I could not have asked for more. The guide who was with us was well versed with the local area, and this made for a far more interactive trip rather than just roaming around from one place to another. Undoubtedly, active holidays are one of the best family activity holiday choices. Our multi adventure holiday was perfect for our family. My sons thoroughly enjoyed our trip, so much so that we have booked again for next year. I would definitely recommend this type of holiday to all my friends and family.
