Has the time come to take the extended trip that you’ve always dreamed about? Whether you want to jet off abroad for a couple of months or spend a year experiencing another way of life, choosing the perfect place can be stressful. You know that you want to jet off into the sunset with your family and spend longer than a couple of weeks seeing and exploring a new place. The only problem is that you’re not sure where to go.
To help you choose that perfect place, below are some ideas. These are all places that are ideal for spending an extended period of time in, seeing the sights and exploring.
America – the land of the free and the home of the brave – is a country that has a lot to offer. This is because it’s such a big place. Believe it or not, the state of Texas – just one of 50 states – is three times larger than the UK. Being such a huge place, the US has so many different destinations to visit and explore. Each state is like a whole different country. There are states that are hot all year around, like California, then there are places that are always cold. So whatever travel experience you want, you’re covered. When it comes to visiting the US for an extended period, it’s important to take the time to research the rules and regulations that are in place. A great place to start with this is online, on sites like the official ESTA website. By researching and reading up on the rules and regulations, you can ensure that before your trip, you’ve done everything that you need to.
The land down under – aka Australia, is somewhere that a lot of people choose to spend an extended amount of time exploring. Being an English-speaking country that’s warm and sunny all year around makes it especially appealing. There are lots of cities to visit and explore, wildlife and nature to see, and, of course, plenty of beaches to relax on. Like the US, Australia is a big place, and so, has a lot to offer. The only downside to this country is that their entry requirements are somewhat strict. So before you book your flights and hotels, it’s important to get your visas sorted. Just in case you’re denied entry for any reason.
Last but not least, France could be the perfect destination for an extended family trip. Regardless of whether you speak French, France could be the ideal place to spend some time soaking up a new culture. Being joined to mainland Europe means that should you want to, it would be easy to travel to other countries. Think Spain, Italy, Germany – wherever your fancy visiting. In terms of visas for traveling to France, currently, no visa is required. However, when the UK leaves the EU next year, that may change.
There you have it, three destinations that could be ideal for your family’s extended vacation.
