Trip Ideas from A to Z for Every Traveler
You know that life is short and the world is wide. There is so much to explore and discover on this beautiful earth. The best way to do that is to sample a bit of everything.
Here are travel ideas of types of journeys that you can take from A to Z.
- Adventure Travel for the curious, the thrill-seekers and boundary-pushers. It involves travel to remote or exotic locations to take part in physically challenging outdoor activities.
- Babymoon is a newly coined term for a period of time both parents take to relax and spend quality time together before the baby is born.
- Culture and History Trips. It is one thing to read about history and culture in a textbook or novel but it’s a completely different experience to stand where history was made.
- Devotional Trips. To get in touch with the spiritual and religious side and to celebrate one’s faith. Pilgrimage or religious trips are common all over the world.
- Eco Vacation. If you’d like to reduce your footprint a bit, get closer to nature and enjoy the many pleasures of eco retreats, then consider an eco vacation, where sustainability and ecological responsibility are an important part of each day’s itinerary, and where there are countless opportunities to experience incredible natural beauty and unique bio-diversity.
- Fishing Trips. For the adventure-seeking anglers, there are some stunning fishing spots on the planet.
- Girlfriend Getaways. Vacation with all your favorite women to reminisce, relax and reconnect.
- Honeymoon, the traditional vacation taken by newlyweds.
- Islands Travel. If you are looking for miraculously beautiful places with vast stretches of beauty to explore on land and in water by day and elegant places to hang out at night, islands from all over the world beckon you.
- Jobs. You may take up travel jobs that allow you to earn income while exploring the world.
- Kid Friendly Vacation. For a perfect family vacation, there is a whole world of vacation destinations that are kid-friendly.
- Luxury Travel offers the best of the best: intimate experiences, personalized services, gourmet meals, and beautiful surroundings that together promise a maximum of pleasure and a minimum of stress.
- Mountain Getaways. For those looking for scenic backdrops of forested peaks and endless sky and lush meadows.
- National Parks.
- Once-in-a-lifetime Adventure is what separates a tourist from a traveler.
- Pet Friendly Vacations. You can plan a getaway with your furry friend as there are now a lot of pet friendly destinations.
- Quirky Travel. Looking for voodoo spa treatments to armadillo races and subversive donut shops?
- Road Trips, to take control of the wheel and explore the world at your own pace.
- Solo Travel to explore the world and yourself on your own terms and pace.
- Trekking along trails winding up, down, over and around mountains with a backpack and living in the wild.
- Unknown and Mysterious Travel – Pack light, set off, and see where the road takes you. You could also go to the airport with no set destination.
- Volunteer Travel. See the world and actively make a difference in communities that need support.
- Wineries Trips. Explore the vineyards and wineries and taste to your heart’s content without worrying about driving.
- Xtreme Sports. To test the limits of what’s humanly possible and for fun and thrill.
- Yoga Retreats for a truly transformative experience of healing the mind and the body.
- Zzzz– A trip to do nothing but just to relax and rejuvenate.
So what all have you ticked from these travel types and which of these will definitely feature in your next travel plan?
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Notes from the Road, which has my thoughts, views, experiences, tips, stories inspired by my years on the road.
April 10, 2018 12:13 am|
A to Z mein A to Z! Interesting list, Shilpa. My favourite is Road trips and Mountain Getaways. Unknown and Mysterious travel sounds good, however I doubt if I’d try this. Have you tried this?
April 10, 2018 12:44 am|
Thanks Tarang. I wonder if going on a long drive in an unknown area and just going ahead and exploring whatever comes your way can be classified as Unknown and Mysterious Travel? I think, it can be termed as the mini version of Unknown and Mysterious Travel. What say you? 😀
April 10, 2018 12:18 am|
And with that you’ve completed the A-Z challenge, long before others
Jokes apart, mine is more of mystery travels as I don’t know where I’ll travel next. The entire world is open to me.
April 10, 2018 12:47 am|
Hahaha… wish that was the reality 😀
That is said like a true traveler. May you get to explore and travel a lot, Alok 🙂
April 10, 2018 12:42 am|
That’s a great list–an AtoZ of it’s own I suspect. Where does family vacation fit in, where we-all go to visit family?
April 10, 2018 12:52 am|
Family Vacation… hmmm…. I think it can be a part of Kid Friendly Vacation, Zzzz, Road Trips… 😀
Thanks Jacqui 🙂
April 10, 2018 1:14 am|
I love adventure travel.
April 10, 2018 1:09 pm|
That’s wonderful, SG. Would love to know more about your adventure travels on your blog! 🙂
April 10, 2018 6:57 am|
Damn… I feel so useless when I see this list. I haven’t been on 99% of them… I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a babymoon!
April 10, 2018 1:12 pm|
It’s time to take a break from work and pack your bags and travel 🙂
April 10, 2018 8:35 am|
What a clever and creative post with A to Z travel idea list. It was fun checking the entire list.
Didn’t know babymoon is a term before. In my opinion, it is a nice concept for to be parents to spend some quality time together.
For me devotional trips were more of cultural trips 😀 and then devotional trips to Mountains and rough paths were no less than adventures 😀
Can never think of zzzz trips( I dont want to sleep on trips) and Solo trips (I am one anxious person in new places when left alone).
April 10, 2018 1:38 pm|
Yeah, Babymoon is a nice little vacation for the to-be parents before their lives change forever! 😀
Solo trips are pretty empowering, will do a post on it. It is suggested that one should go on at least one solo trip in their life. 🙂
April 11, 2018 7:54 am|
I would definitely read the post. Out of all other I need it the most, atleast to become comfortable with the idea of traveling alone
April 11, 2018 1:10 pm|
That’s awesome, Shesha! We will talk more about it in the S post 🙂
April 10, 2018 10:28 am|
You really have covered the A to Z of travel trips. Personally speaking I find solo trips the most satisfying…… I don’t particularly like adventure holidays especially not the extreme sport ones…..
April 10, 2018 1:40 pm|
Oh, yes solo trips are amazing and should be on everyone’s travel list. Glad that you love taking up solo trips.
April 10, 2018 10:48 am|
Nice list..My dream job is to work for “travel and Living’ channel. But after A-Z, I would take a zzz vacation. I guess a slumbercation or sleepcation. Nice post as always.
April 10, 2018 1:41 pm|
Oh that would be sooo awesome. Travel the world and earn too 🙂 Hope that comes true for you, Balaka.
Ah! We all need the zzzz vacation after AtoZ 😀
April 10, 2018 11:14 am|
Great list ,Loved the post.

April 10, 2018 12:28 pm|
This is getting my lust up for travel Shilpa thank you! I’ve done a few of those trips .. a big one is coming up in June. Tomorrow catching a plane to be at the sea for several days. There it’ll be a bit tame, walks on beach – MAYBE I’ll hike the Robberg which is an adventurous & strenuous thing to do.
I LOVE road-tripping – have done a bit of island hopping (Seychelles, a long time ago); a wineries trip – omgoodness that was amazing in the beautiful Cape winelands); trekked up Kilimanjaro – a long time ago … would love to do a yoga retreat and the zzzzz one sounds just up my street
April 10, 2018 1:42 pm|
Wow! You have traveled a LOT, Susan and how awesome is that!!
All the very best for your sea trip and have a great time relaxing and rejuvenating 🙂

April 10, 2018 12:34 pm|
I’m intrigued by the idea of subversive donuts! I’d say most of my travel has been either working or visiting family – luckily all to pretty lovely places, though 🙂
April 10, 2018 1:50 pm|
Check this site https://www.voodoodoughnut.com/doughnuts/ for subversive donuts 🙂
Travel to pretty places sounds lovely, Kim 🙂
April 10, 2018 12:43 pm|
Whoa this is an amazing AtoZ on it own Shilpa-kudos for being so creative with this travel list. I think volunteer travel is something I have been mulling over for sometime now. Let’s see what I figure out there.
April 10, 2018 1:53 pm|
Volunteer travel is awesome and there are a lot of organizations and projects that help you do that. All the best to you, Shalini. Hope you get to travel and do the good work too 🙂
April 10, 2018 12:57 pm|
Oh my so many options, love all of them shilpa, never head of babymoon:) have done devotional travel, retreat, historical … there’s lot more and thanks for the ideas:)
April 10, 2018 1:53 pm|
Yes, there’s so much for us to explore and learn and grow. Babymoon is a cool concept and guess certainly needed for to-be parents 😀
April 10, 2018 2:42 pm|
Let me pick my favourite, – Girlfriend getaways and Eco tours…. I am not much of an adventure person, so would prefer more sobre ones.
April 10, 2018 6:22 pm|
Great choices, Ramya!! Hope you tick them off from your list soon 🙂
April 10, 2018 3:21 pm|
Absolutely loved this post, Shilpa. I admire the effort and time you have put in to compile this.
I’d probably do all except the babymoon and solo travel. The former because I don’t ever want to get there and the latter because it would be plain boring!
April 10, 2018 6:24 pm|
Thanks a lot for your kind words, Soumya 🙂
Solo travel and boring…. nah!! You must experience it once, even though you have the bestest traveling partner in your husband 🙂
April 10, 2018 4:01 pm|
Babymoon is a new term for me. I love the word. It has a nice ring to it, not sure about the logistics of holidaying before the baby arrives. I wanted to save all of my maternity leave for after they arrived:)
All of us in the family love road trips so wherever we are, we explore, explore, explore.
Give me half a chance to travel and I’m out of the door.
But I prefer my bed for zzzzing holidays: freshly cleaned house, fresh sheets, my book and I settle in for part reading, part snoozing–BLISS!
I is for Ishq
April 10, 2018 6:26 pm|
LOL @ saving all maternity leaves 😀 Well, different people have different priorities 😉
Yes, I would prefer my home for zzzing too, always 😀
April 10, 2018 4:43 pm|
I liked your A to Z travel list, Shilpa. But you know me…I would love a solo trip, and a Yoga trip, any day. Rejuvenating as well as exciting, a trip that will help me ‘find’ myself, again! 🙂
April 10, 2018 6:29 pm|
I can do with a Yoga trip too 🙂
Amen to your travel plans, Shilpa. Thanks!
April 10, 2018 5:38 pm|
A nice detailed list, Shilpa. At present, I am looking out for some zzzz trip to relax and rejuvenate.
April 10, 2018 6:35 pm|
Ah! I think all AtoZers will need the Zzzz vacation by the end of this month 😀
April 10, 2018 10:31 pm|
I haven’t covered Xtreme and Trekking. Everything else. Wow! I feel wonderful after reading your list, Shilpa! What about you? How many have you ticked off that list?
April 10, 2018 10:39 pm|
I havent gone for a Babymoon, quirky, extreme sports, fishing, wineries trip. And pet vacation too, because we dont have a pet 😀
Wow, you have done quite a bit, Vidya 🙂
April 10, 2018 11:07 pm|
Wow! this is a great list. There was no babymoon for us but now its a lot of kid friendly vacations. Waiting to go on a girlfriend trip soon. Sounds like fun.
April 10, 2018 11:12 pm|
Babymoon seems to be a recent development 😀 Good luck for your Girls Only trip, Deepa 🙂
April 11, 2018 4:57 am|
Been enjoying and sharing your posts, Shilpa! Travel is one of my fave activities.
April 11, 2018 1:09 pm|
Thanks a lot for your support, Damyanti. Appreciate it ♥
April 11, 2018 1:07 pm|
I have been able to tick mark only a few of the kinds of travels mentioned in the list above. I guess I am going to have to pull up my socks to put traveling higher up on my priority list.
April 11, 2018 1:08 pm|
Amen to that 😀
April 11, 2018 4:00 pm|
There is another kind of trip, that I have made some times: linguistic travelling. Visiting a place while learning the language in a local school. It’s another way to look deeper into the culture (and make friends!).
April 11, 2018 4:52 pm|
Aha! That’s interesting, Eva. I wasnt aware of linguistic travelling, thanks for sharing 🙂
April 11, 2018 4:07 pm|
This an amazing post you have written Shilpa. That’s quiet a list there and I have many to tick on that list yet. Hopefully will do at-least 80% in this life time!
April 11, 2018 4:51 pm|
Amen to that, Medha! 🙂
April 11, 2018 4:12 pm|
I love this list, Shilpa! You have truly covered the AtoZ of travel! Very impressive and innovative!
April 11, 2018 4:50 pm|
Thanks for your feedback and support, Mayuri. Truly appreciate it ♥
April 12, 2018 1:44 am|
What a great list of different types of travel! I like most of them! Most especially, I like adventure and an eco-vacation, while I’m learning about the culture and history of the place that I’m visiting. While on the eco-vacation, I’d like to do some trekking in the mountains and maybe visit a national park or two. It would be fun to have some girlfriends along to share the adventure and the fun. I’d love to volunteer in an unknown and mysterious place but I fear that I would actually need to find a job while I’m traveling so that I don’t go bankrupt.
April 12, 2018 11:02 am|
Now, this sounds like a plan. In one trip, you can do so many things. Hope this comes true for you, Alice! Thanks for dropping by and sharing your thoughts 🙂
April 12, 2018 2:05 pm|
What a wonderful post on trip ideas, Shilpa! I would opt for Islands Travel, Road Trips and Zzzzz Trips, I think! 🙂 I enjoy your posts. They are fun to read and informative! 🙂
April 12, 2018 2:06 pm|
Sounds like a plan, Deepti! Go for it 🙂
Thanks, glad you like it here. This has made my day ♥

A vacation turned to be an adventure and good memory when you spending it with your family. Camping is not a new concept but the availability of new camping gadgets has made this fun activity more interesting.
March 7, 2020 11:29 am|
Babymoon is the funniest of all, I travel first and then name it. with your post, I even have the classification of holidays I’ve taken LOL thanks.
March 8, 2020 10:20 am|
very interesting post. My favourite is Island travel. We used to search islands nearby and spend weekends there.
