The travel buzz word “experience” is nothing new. But a book from National Geographic released earlier this year has handpicked a bunch that are extra special: The 100 Best Vacations to Enrich Your Life offers up a collection of nourishing travel experiences, like cooking, painting, studying and volunteering.
We’re all familiar with the “It’s not the destination” travel mantra, right? We know it’s really all about the journey, regardless of where you go. So, instead of overloading you with places you should visit before you die, this book suggests specific things you can do to enrich your life while you’ve still got one. If 1,000 places to see seems daunting, why not start here first, with a manageable list of 100 learn-as-you-go vacation ideas for the US, Canada and Mexico.
