Playing Casino Slots

In the past, casino players might have inspired you to travel the planet to play in the famous casinos in places like Monte Carlo, Las Vegas and Macau. However, the fact that we can now play online has changed this approach and opened up new possibilities thanks to the huge range of themed games now found online.

The collection at https://bingo.paddypower.com/c/bingo-slots includes the likes of Lucky’s Magic Clover and Wish Up on a Paddy Power with attractive an Irish feel. Other slots such as Tropical Tiki, Cleopatra II and Shaman’s Dream take players on adventures to different places and cultures.

Reading Books

Reading books is another hobby that has changed thanks to technology, with e-readers allowing us the convenience of taking away as much reading material on holiday as we want. Yet, could we also use our favourite books as a way of getting inspired to discover new places? The answer can be seen in the fact that literary tourism attracts visitors to places like Sherlock Holmes’ 221B Baker Street residence which is one of the many houses of famous characters – real and fictional – that have been turned into museums.

Another example of literary tourism that lets readers immerse themselves in the stories can be found on the Hardy Way. As explained by https://ldwa.org.uk/, this is a route that gives fans of Thomas Hardy the chance to explore the areas of Wessex where the author grew up and that inspired many of his descriptions.

Discovering Exotic Plants

Gardening is another popular hobby that could give you more reasons to travel than you first think. While looking after your plants is something that will keep you at home more often than not, it also opens up the possibility of visiting botanical gardens and flower shows around the planet. Just don’t forget to leave someone in charge of watering your plants while you’re away.

According to https://www.timeout.com/, the Singapore Botanical Gardens which is set partly in a rainforest is the top choice, followed by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in New York and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden in Cape Town. As well as giving you a relaxing activity that can be carried out in many different cities, you might also find inspiration for your own garden at home.

The truth is that you can get inspired to travel by just about any hobby. As we’ve seen in these examples, it’s mainly a case of looking for an angle that interests you and then working out where you can go to on this basis. You could find that it helps you enjoy your hobbies more while also having another reason to see more of the world.
