Travelling is more than just seeing something new and getting out of the house. The destination should bring you peace of mind and completely relax your body. After all, we live in a fast-paced world, and it’s important to take a breather. In order to keep living a healthy and fulfilled life, you ought to take a vacation. So if you really want to rejuvenate your body and soul, step into one of these amazing destinations.
1. Go back to the past in Varanasi
Located in India, this is a city dating back all the way to the 11thcentury BC. As India’s spiritual capital, it rightly holds the title of the best place to purify and rejuvenate your soul. This is supported by the aarti ceremony, performed by Hindu priests.
Standing on the Ganges River while the ceremony takes place will definitely leave you blessed and renewed. See the magnificent sunset in the same location, and the process will be completed.
2. Say “Aloha” to Hawaii
What’s better than letting your body relax and mind wander on of the most beautiful beaches in the world while sipping tropical juice? Visiting Hawaii will allow you to do just that. This state is famous for its long tradition of spiritual healing and can certainly own up to it.
While you’re there, remember to eat well. Take a chance on Hawaii’s famous food trucks. Though it may not sound appetizing, the food served is a combination of regional ingredients and classic cooking methods, making it the ideal fusion for your taste buds.
3. Find yourself in Bali
Due to the chaotic lifestyle we collectively share one way or another, it’s easy to lose yourself. If you feel lost, you can rent out one of the peaceful and luxurious Bali villas available to kick-start your journey to self-rediscovery. The focus in Bali is all on relaxing you and waking up your senses.
You can do this by dipping your toes in the blue waters, or warming your feet in the white sand. Don’t miss out on the long walks through untouched nature either. After all, this is the best way to establish a connection with nature and yourself.
4. Take a walk on the Himalayas
Even though they might look threatening at first glance, we can all agree the Himalayas are quite extraordinary. There’s nothing more adrenaline-inducing than taking a simple walk on one of their many hiking trails.
You don’t have to do anything extreme to experience the true charm of the mountains. Just being there has a positive effect on your body and mind, with the exercise working your muscles and releasing tension, while your soul becomes completely captivated with the sight in front of you.
5. Experience Lake Bled in Slovenia
If you want to visit a unique and stunning location, Lake Bled is definitely the place for you. It’s a glacial lake with its own island located in Central Europe. You’ll get to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature while exploring every nook and cranny of the island, or just walking around.
You can also rent a gondola and get the full experience of the lake. Who knows, you might even get to meet one of the many beautiful swans who live there. Fans of hiking can also enjoy their favourite activity here, as there are striking forest trails that lead to Bled Castle.
6. Let Antarctica warm your heart
Those looking for an adventure of a lifetime should definitely visit Antarctica. It’s never too late to explore the other side of nature we so rarely get to see. This vacation is ideal for rejuvenating your soul as facing the cold, white, and icy beauty makes you realize how lucky we are to share this amazing planet.
You’ll also see exactly who we’re sharing it with, as penguin encounters are fairly common. Even though Antarctica is cold, its cute little inhabitants will surely warm your heart and make you forget about the concrete jungle.
7. Discover the fountain of youth in Israel
The fountain of youth is something people have been searching for centuries. The reason they haven’t found it yet is that we’re actually talking about a sea, not a fountain. The Dead Sea in Israel, to be exact.
It’s full of calcium, magnesium, and potassium and soaking up these minerals will make your skin feel and look younger. Your other organs will be reaping the benefits, too. All you have to do is lie down in the water, let your troubles float away, and walk out a completely restored person.
As you can see, vacationing in the right place will bring all the right benefits. Nothing battles stress and exhaustion from daily life better than escaping to a piece of paradise and ignoring the rest of the world for a while. Remember to put yourself first and that there’s nothing wrong with pampering your soul and body. A little self-care goes a long way.
