If you’re already abandoning your New Year’s resolution, how about setting a new goal – one that you’ll actually enjoy – such as travel more. And while you’re setting new objectives, pick travel destinations that are as unorthodox as possible.[slideshow:103670]
The Earth is a marvelous place and technology has made even the most remote or hidden lodgings available to the masses. The Internet has only unleashed people’s hunger to visit them by showing the wonders of the world.
Travel is about experiencing new cultures. Why not do that in the most thrilling way possible? You can stay in a rotating hotel, a hobbit motel or tree house in the shape of a sphere. Other once in a lifetime trips include sleeping in a jailhouse (as a tourist, of course), in a capsule, or even a former gun emplacement that is now practically its own island.
Test your limits. Can you sleep outside all night where you’re likely to encounter wildlife in the middle of the night, even though they’ll be far enough?
If you’re looking to not be like most people and go on a never-ending quest to find an affordable hotel that is conveniently situated close to every tourist attraction you want to see and has free room service, search for an out of the ordinary location.
