Travel is a luxury afforded to people who either have large sums of money, or are just ridiculously good at pinching their pennies or finding a good deal. Both scenarios are perfectly fine because whoever you are, you still get to travel, and that’s the true meaning of life, after all.
While a majority of the world is stuck traveling to new places by train, plane, bus, or automobile, other people do it differently. Most people don’t get to experience the level of style that these lucky souls get to travel by, but it doesn’t mean you can’t dream or read about it.
Here are the most stylish ways people travel.
My Yacht or Yours?
As eccentric as it may sound, people actually travel the world by yacht. Yachts aren’t just for throwing wild parties, evidently. You’ll need to know your way around the waters of the world, and you’ll have to pack enough supplies to make it from destination to destination, but traveling by yacht is like having your own cruise ship. Only it’s way better because you’re not sharing with 10,000 other people, and you’re able to invite your closest friends.
If you’re really feeling fancy, you can even have your yacht decorated as beautiful on the inside as the scenery on the outside. Why have boring indoors when you don’t have to? Start traveling this way, you’ll never go back to those silly cars.
My Horse or Your Horse?
Though this sounds monumentally less exciting than traveling by yacht, traveling by horse was the way people did it for centuries. The most posh of people got to ride in decked out carriages fit for royalty. Today you can join a horse caravan and experience the great outdoors like folks did on the oregon trail…only with less cholera and typhoid.
The carriages are comfortable, you have all that you need, and you you’re literally exploring the great outdoors like the early settlers did. Talk about a stylish and historical! You’re killing two birds with one stone. Alright, that’s enough death jokes for today.
My Camel or Your Camel?
Careful, they spit. Cool thing is, you’ll always have the front seat! No more calling for shotgun. Travel by camel caravan and do as no other westerner has done. Talk about ultimate style. You can pretend that you’re from ancient times, or that you’re Aladdin. It’s all the same really.
When you travel by camel caravan, you get a suntan and smell the ocean breeze at the same time. Perhaps a yacht is the better option for doing the exact same thing, but come on. It’s a camel. It’s awesome.
