Alternate travel experiences

You might have played this before at some corporate event. You know – being trapped in a room where you have to search for clues leading you to the numbers that open a lock or a door to escape. But this seems to be getting to a new level. Would you go for being trapped in a real basement? The article suggests that Hungary is the where you can experience this intensity of the game.

The point of our post is, does each journey you embark on build you memories? Because sometimes alternate travel experiences do. But do you need that?

We’ve been writing about journeys with a purpose (here & here). What we referred to were journeys in which you built memories. You know, something you can recall. Not the ones where you’ve been and its like “wow what did we do there?”… and in some cases, alternate travel experiences might hold the key to keeping those journeys memorable. But that’s for one to decide upon.

Have you ever wondered, as you looked through the photos you’ve taken that they seem similar? That sandy white beach could have been on the Maldives, Mauritius or the Philippines (or Caribbean, list goes on). If you hadn’t sorted them out, how’d you know? What would be the spark that helps you recall that journey?

We aim to put a story or a topic of discussion in our postings. And we try utmost to do the same in our handprint stories to help us remember (heheh getting old perhaps). And of course the game we referred to does not have to be a claustophic one. One could try ‘escaping’ from the city. Justine did exactly that (read here). Would you play an escape game in every city you get to?

Brings new meaning to getting away on an ‘escape’ doesn’t it?

  1. I don’t travel as much as the travelers so although I do touristy stuff, my travels are normally coupled with the purpose of visiting relatives and friends. Therefore, my travel experiences have always had some local flavor. As for escaping, we used to always escape from the city even just for a weekend. We haven’t been doing that lately. Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

  2. I like the idea. We get all too comfortable with the tried and true. I suspect we are all guilty of it. But most memorable experiences involve something new, even if it’s looking at something we’ve seen a dozen times in a different way. –Curt
