New Delhi, Jan 13: Winters have well set in, with breezy air and decreasing temperatures. However, the holiday season is yet to end, with people planning trips to have some quality of what is called the ‘me’ time.

Founder, trip n howl.com, Satyajeet Pradhan has listed some ways, by which one can make use of the holiday season:

Solo Trip:

Harassed by multiple plans that keep on getting postponed and cancelled, the millennials have come up with this new solution; the upcoming trend that will not withhold them from the adventure that awaits Solo trips.

This is the perfect opportunity for them to find new friends from the various places they visit, be it metro-cosmopolitan cities or small town and villages. Another plus point of this trip is the cost of travels, food and night stay in the turns out to be the least. But the gifts for the lazy and slothful men left behind, the reason for this trip to be solo, may exceed the budget sometimes.

Couples’ Unofficial Honeymoon:

We all have friends who keep bragging about their significant other. They would leave their friends, colleagues, basic errands, urgent calls, important meetings and everything else to spend time with their ‘special someone’. And when it comes to going on vacations, it’s like heaven on earth to them.

Setting our next trend, many couples take trips to hill stations, isolated island with beautiful beaches and other obnoxiously romantic destinations and live in the moment with the one you cannot get enough of. These couples love to take a break and travel to a place far, far away, leaving the world behind.

Road Trip:

Everyone who loves adventure is familiar with our next dish on the adventure menu, The Road Trips. The only rule that has to be followed is to ‘take the road’. No trains, no flights, no buses. One car and friends hopped in the back seat.

Road trips are the most exciting way of travelling as it’s the journey that counts and not the destination. The destination may be even known.

Driving through long endless roads playing old tracks, be it Kishore Kumar songs or smooth Tennessee whiskey. It’s also cheap as the only stops are the ones at dhabas to eat masala chicken and Punjabi style parathas and the obvious washroom breaks.

Driving all night through the jungle, past the meadows, next to a steep valley on the mountains adds up to a wonderful experience.

A trip to the unexplored:

This is the secret valley of natural beauty. A place that no one knows about. Usually suggested by other adventurous peeps of yours who most certainly found this place while they were out for their own adventure.

Taking a road trip to the unknown:

These are the trips to places like a small island or a village behind the mountains which are merely crowded as no one really knows about this place. Such places turn out to be inexpensive. They are not easily found and usually offer delicious staple food. With the amazing view in every direction and sparse or no hotels at all, we end up mingling with the locals learning wondrous things about their culture.

Vacation for the party lovers:

The most difficult type of vacation, the one that has always been planned but hardly accomplished, the one we were referring to in the first trend that is the group trips to places meant for vacation. These trips are as fun as it can be.

People run away from their hectic life containing a 9 to 5 job and endless signs boredom. Those who need a break from the daily conferences and scheduled meetings decide to run away to these awesome holiday destinations. Even for college students, who seek for some adventure and love meeting new people and partying come to trips and experience the best of the best. After all, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!
