If you couldn’t already tell by following me on twitter or reading my blog, I am a travel addict. I believe in breaking out of the norm and engaging new experiences.
Now, I could have made this “1 Day, 1 Way to Get Busy Livin’ – TRAVEL” but it just didn’t have the same ring to it. I turned 31 back on June 4, so I am covering 31 ways to Get Busy Livin a more fulfilled life.
With all of the cool ways to travel, one of those ways that Mike and I have always toyed with is a game known as “Spin the Globe.” Now, this game is not for the faint of heart, or those light in the wallet.
First things first, find a friend (or 2) who are in for the game. Once you have your traveling buddies, pick your timeline, preferably 7-14 days, enough of a vacation for everyone, while still allowing everyone to get the time off work.
Now, this game can be played a number of ways, so pick your house rules amongst your traveling partners, and go from there. You can choose to narrow the field down a bit, set certain guidelines, etc. It is limited only by your interpretation.
You can use a dartboard and a map, but we prefer using a globe. A good, old fashioned one that has some well oiled bearings in it and spins like crazy.
7 days prior to your departure, gather your travel buddies, and maybe a few good friends to cheer you on. One of the travel buddies takes the globe and gives it a good, hearty spin. The 2nd travel buddy, with his/her eyes closed, stops the globe spinning and points to a spot on the map. If the 2nd person’s finger landed on a country/city/island, that is your destination. *Note: Destination must be international and easily accessible with only a passport. if you want to add in countries that will require travel Visa’s, add ample time to allow for those arrangements
You now have 3 days to book your airfare/car rental/hotel/whatever you need. No price shopping. No package shopping. Barely any planning. Spontaneous decision. Instantaneous gratification.
Day 7. Way 7. Forget the bottle. Spin the Globe.
What is the most spontaneous, crazy, random, impulsive travel you have ever taken?
