Trends / Voluntourism

With all of the vacation trends possible to try, including the new, productive crafting staycation, it is easy to forget some old standbys like volunteering. Sometimes this process can become nebulous and you are not able to see the fruits of your labor, so to speak, but there are also options that include working together with a team to accomplish a definitive task. Habitat for Humanity has just these sorts of opportunities.

The task of building homes for those in need is immensely satisfying and this organization offers a lot of different ways for you to participate. If global travel is something you are interested in, check out the projects available at Global Village. These experiences are designed to immerse you in a new cultural context while giving back to your host country.

Other options are geared toward women and veterans. Women Build has been around since 1991 and brings together women to learn or contribute construction skills to bolster communities, including their own. There are also youth and veteran programs that work to instill not only an appreciation of community, but serviceable skills and a community of support through volunteerism. If national or international community building is something you are after, explore this opportunity.

Places to Stop on a Road Trip in Ireland

Ireland is a gorgeous country with friendly citizens and lots of areas to explore. Many travelers stick to Dublin, Cork or Belfast when they visit, but there are many cute and charming towns in between these major cities that should not be ignored. The best way to see all these places is to rent a car and do a road trip through Ireland. This is a great way to make travel memories that are memorable and off the beaten path. Ireland is a safe and easy country to navigate, so it’s a perfect trip for firs- time travelers as well as more experienced travelers.

Work and Play in Italy

ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
