You can have a campfire on the beach anywhere; however, if you are in Connecticut, go to Jennings Beach for the evening. They have a campfire already set up for you. All you have to do is pay a fee, bring some graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows, and you are ready to have a wonderful evening along the water. Do not forget to get a picture of the moon and its reflection sparkling along the water.

2: Experience a New Culture-

The best thing about international travel is that there are many cultures to learn about. Meeting the kind locals, visiting history museums, temples, churches, and mosques, and booking guided tours are great ways to learn about a new place you are visiting. When I went to Bali, I went on a temple tour. Every home in Bali has a temple. They have traditions, rituals, and offerings daily. I am grateful that we got to see the 80 temples of Besakih on a Sunday because there were ceremonies everywhere. We got to witness their traditional outfits and balanced offerings to their god. Besakih is on the inclines of Bali’s largest volcano, Mount Agung.

3: Wax Museum-

Have you ever wondered how tiny Kim Kardashian is or how tall Taylor Swift is? Well, now you can find out at the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. You can even make wax while you are there.

Although it might be scary and intimidating at first, surfing is enjoyable once you get the feel of it. We recommend taking a few surf lessons before going out on your own. Learning a new sport can be challenging but rewarding. Surfing lessons cater to different needs, abilities, and fitness levels.

You can go water tubing down a river, with just the river pulling you down, or you can have a boat pull you. Both experiences are unforgettable. We went water tubing in Costa Rica down the rapid river in Rio Negro.

The sensation of bungee jumping is thrilling and exciting. The bounce after the initial fall is the most fun.
