A tour company is now offering mystery trips. You pay; you pack (what? A bit of everything I guess); you meet someone at the airport who has your ticket and you go somewhere… whilst there, you don’t know what you’ll be doing from one day to the next. Intrigued?
I’m not surprised someone’s come up with an idea like this. There’s a lot of competition out there. Additionally, a good proportion of travellers are now looking for off-the-beaten-track destinations and the ultimate adventure and you need to capture their imaginations.
I can see the attraction. These mystery trips offer a completely new experience. Seasoned-travellers looking for a thrill, I’m sure, will be up for it. Can you imagine the sense of adventure? It’s like re-discovering travel.
You could say that someone’s doing all the work for you, but at the same time, you’re probably going to be doing stuff you woudn’t have done otherwise (thought of doing even) and see things you didn’t even know existed, things that had not made it on your radar.
Would I be up for it? Well yeah… but not just yet; I still have plenty of travel destinations in mind to keep me going for now.
