We say it is time to Travel Deep As a Family With A Vacation to Feel and Do Good. Vacation and learning as a combo are paramount for us. No matter how fun or cool a destination or trip can be, there is always something fun to take in as an educational moment. You know we love these moments or trips because those are lessons that will never be forgotten. As a matter of fact, those are the memories our family will go back to and cherish forever. Now, when you have the opportunity of teaching and throwing in doing good for others you just made and had the entire cake. In our quest for world peace through understanding cultures to build tolerance and respect, an immersion into someone else’s life even if for an hour makes giant strides. We are totally recommending you consider including in your vacation plans anything that relates to social impact activities.
Three Reasons to Travel Deep As a Family
The new travel buzz word out there is “Travel Deep”. Simply put, this type of tourism is one where you combine a vacation with some type of volunteering. We shared with you how we started our summer aboard the Adonia Ship a Fathom Cruise part of the Carnaval Cruise Lines family en route to the beautiful Dominican Republic. After being part of this sailing, we believe there are many reasons why all families should experience it at some point. Here are out top Three Reasons to Travel Deep As a Family #TravelDeep
- Gratitude: social impact trips can put things into perspective and help us teach children to be thankful for what they have…or not.
- Empathy: putting ourselves in the shoes of others might lead us to find solutions and slow us down to judge.
- Leadership: you can expect your family to start a toy drive, support causes and drive positive change in different areas.
A Vacation to Feel and Do Good
While on vacation, there is no doubt that we do feel good. The change of pace or scenery does good for every family member every time. Every single one of our vacation adventures fill our hearts and render our memories priceless. At some point, we do some good by paying coffee for the person behind us; for example. Despite doing these things as part of our daily lives as well, there is a different viewpoint that we give the kids by continuing the practice during our holidays. Better than that is planning a vacation around doing good for others. This enables you to have a conversation about the fun, expectations and outcome of your activities long before you even depart. Underline what is most important for you, and offer potential ways in which you will see it while on holidays.
The Fun of Travel Deep Vacations
You work hard, and your vacations are your reward. Some of us are more sensitive than others. The contrasts, the stories and the different plights might not be the way you want to deliver the messages that Travel Deep can give your family. So, while Fathom Cruises does focus on social impact, it is a choice. You can get to your destination and be inspired to do social impact activities everyday or none at all.
Regardless of how you travel deep, you are sure to find fun by:
- exploring your surroundings
- trying new foods
- making friends
- learning new dances, languages or skills
- feeling good about getting out of your comfort zone
- sharing and caring for others
- feeling good about doing good
- teaching without the classroom setting
- discovering a new culture or way of life
- appreciating what your destination has to offer
From experience, you will be touched whether you impact travel or not. Getting out of your comfort zone to show the world to your family is in itself already Travel Deep if you ask me. Lending a hand in reforestation or taking in the beauty of your surroundings by laying on the beach know that you are making a positive difference for someone at your travel destination. Find that soul food and smile.
