10 Vacations to Take This Summer

Granted most people can't just leave work and literally take ten vacations in one summer but you can always condense your vacations into weekend instead of week-long adventures.

  1. Go camping or backpacking (the back-to-nature thing, sans electronics, is a great way to unplug while also practicing some survival skills).
  2. Go on a micro-adventure.
  3. Go on a road trip to visit friends or family (this is also good practice for bugging out).
  4. Take an international trip (traveling among different countries/cultures is a valuable learning experience).
  5. Visit a popular tourist attraction (good practice managing in a crowd).
  6. Go off-the-beaten-track (visit a small town, a beach town, a remote town, etc).
  7. Go to an organized camp where you will learn something (dude ranch, a week or weekend at Front Sight or similar, a convention related to your hobby, DEFCON, etc).
  8. Experience a destination you have never been to before (rain forest, desert, swamp, ocean, inner city, etc).
  9. Spend a vacation helping others (working on a Habitat for Humanity house, volunteering at a children's camp, etc).
  10. Attend an intensive workshop to increase your job skills (example here).
