Staying at home after a messy divorce is one of the worst things you can do. You’ll feel like your ex is starting a brand new chapter of her life while you watch yours sink. It’s good if you can go on an adventure to switch your mind off for a few weeks.
Once you get home you’ll see the world with a new set of eyes. Do you have any idea where you’d like to visit? It needs to be somewhere that will turn you into a new man. Here is a quick list of places you should definitely take into consideration.
1. Driving Around in New Zealand
In most cases, driving around gives you time to reflect on life. New Zealand is one of the only countries where it’s impossible. You’ll be too busy staring out the window at all the wonderful sights outside.
New Zealand road trips are world-renowned and you’ll have the greatest time ever. When you’re not in the car you’ll be able to go kayaking, skydiving, and you can learn all about traditional Maori culture.
2. Paddling Down the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon has been a work in progress for over 2 billion years. Standing at the top and looking inside doesn’t feel special enough. Instead, you should paddle down the rapids in a raft.
It will take you a few weeks because it’s over 300 miles long. You’ll be pumped with so much adrenaline you won’t even remember being married. You’ll feel like it’s possible to achieve anything when you get home.
3. A Peruvian Ayahuasca Ceremony
Ayahuasca has become massively popular in the last few years. It’s perfectly legal in Peru and people visit all the time to experience ayahuasca ceremonies, which will change the way you think about everything.
It will let you see deep inside yourself and you’ll be shown the way forward. I know it sounds like new age mumbo jumbo, but it’s one of the most exciting ways you can explore your consciousness at this moment in time.
4. Go Whisky Tasting in Scotland
It’s tempting to drown in alcohol when your life falls apart, but there are other ways to enjoy drinking. Hopefully, you love whisky because you’ll be able to taste the best single malts on the planet in Scotland.
There are lots of tours in Edinburgh you’ll be able to experience. If you jump in a car it’s possible to visit gorgeous little distilleries. Drink enough whisky every day and your worries will vanish into thin air.
5. Camp in a Huge National Park
Into The Wild has become one of the most iconic movies of the last few decades. You can tackle Alaska too, but you should do it by camping in Wrangell – St Elias National Park, which is the size of 6 Yellowstones.
It’s so great because it would easily humble the toughest man alive. You will come home a million times stronger. Take the trip during the summer months and never wander too far into the middle of nowhere.
6. Learn to Snowboard in Whistler
If you plan on running away from your life for a few weeks in winter head to Canada. Whistler is the coolest place in existence if you want to learn how to snowboard. You’ll love flying down the slopes at great speed.
You won’t even think about home because you’ll be having so much fun, plus you will be trying not to hurt yourself. If you survive the slopes you’ll be able to enjoy the wild nightlife when it gets dark.
It’s Vital to Recharge Your Batteries
If you want to get on with your life it’s vital to recharge your batteries, which is hard when your mind is in overdrive. Any of these trips will let you switch off while having an absolutely fantastic time.
