I was recently approached by an Australian named Ruby, who was interested in writing a guest piece. As someone who doesn't have a lot of firsthand experience with staying outdoors/wilderness travel, I thought that this would be a great opportunity to hear from someone who can speak a little bit into that topic. Without further delay, here is her guest post. Enjoy!
Whether you want to visit a tranquil place with your loved ones, in the heart of Australian outback, or you want to head off to a pristine beach in New South Wales or Victoria, relying on an RV is the best way to take your holiday experience to a whole new level. Since holidaying is all about having maximum fun and adventure with your near and dear ones, renting an RV only elevates your experience.
The real fun of a road trip is in spending nights under a starry sky, in ultimate wilderness. The beautiful country of Australia has plenty of places like this and the best part is that no matter which state you pick to travel, you will discover incredible outback destinations everywhere. Most people think that staying in a hotel is the best way to experience luxury, however that's not at all true. Recreational vehicles that come with a kitchen, washing facilities and sleeping space, give an equally luxurious experience, even in the most remote part of a country like Australia.
Here are the advantages of swapping hotels for an RV.
Ease of Planning
Planning is an integral part of road trips, however when it comes to travelling via an RV, you can plan everything with ease. Since you won't be concerned with catching flights, and hotel checkouts, you can change your plans any time. For example, if you want to spend a couple of more days at any particular destination, you can do that without any problem. You don't have to be bothered about cancelling your flight tickets or getting a late check out from the hotel.
When travelling by air and staying in a hotel, you can't get this same type of flexibility as you have to be on time all the occasions, which robs you of your freedom. You therefore have to stick to your plans or get ready to face the consequences. Since this is the case, you have to start planning months in advance, otherwise you won't be able to enjoy your trip. In short, if you rent an RV, you can plan your trip even in a short time.
Have Ultimate Fun on The Road
A RV road trip is the most comfortable and exciting way of exploring your favourite destinations. You can pull over your vehicle at any point of time to explore an attraction, even if that wasn't on your list. In short, it's an ideal way of exploring the best-kept secrets of any country. For example, if you come across a beautiful attraction while travelling to your destination, you can choose to stay over there. All you have to do is pull over in a safe place, to explore everything that the destination in question has to offer.
Wake Up To The Sounds of Nature
In today's fast-paced world, you can get frustrated with the hustle and bustle of the city life and may feel the need to escape from it, whenever you get the opportunity. Planning a trip to a tranquil destination that offers ample opportunities to connect with nature, is the best way of escaping the hustle and bustle of the city. When you travel on an RV, you can wake up to the sounds of nature: the chirping of birds, soft clucking sounds produced by the kangaroos and clicking noises of butterflies.
When you hear the sounds of nature, it has a profound impact on your well-being and happiness. It offers a unique satisfaction to your soul that eventually fills you with optimism.
Meet Warm People
One of the best parts of carrying out road trips, is that you get to meet a lot of warm people. When you interact with new people, you learn a whole lot of things. When it comes to inquiring about the best-kept secrets of any destinations, locals can turn out to be the best source of information.
Carry Out Adventurous Activities
One of the several freedoms that you have during an RV road trip is to perform the activities of your choice. If you love hiking, you can pull over your vehicle in the perfect place to go ahead with it. Similarly, if you enjoy fishing, you can park your RV in a safe place and then proceed.
Explore Unique Cuisines & Wines
When you travel by road, you get endless opportunities to discover unique cuisines. Every place that you visit has its specialties and you must explore them to the fullest. For example, if you are supposed to travel the Hunter Valley in New South Wales, you must discover the classic wines provided by this region . Since its famous for wines and lush green vineyards, you should definitely take the time to explore both of them.
RV camping also allows you to have your own unique cooking experiences as you can have a great time while cooking in the wild, and exploring the most remotely located national parks.
