So, you've done the package holiday, spent time on the beach and skied to your heart's content. Why not broaden your horizons for the next holiday and try something a little off the beaten track? Here are some ideas that may not be the usual summer getaway, but will give you lifelong, happy memories and a real sense of adventure.

Going Underground.
We're not talking about caving here, but about visiting dwellings that were built underground in order to protect the residents from attack. One of the best-preserved examples of an underground world can be found at Cappadocia, in Turkey. The most detailed network of tunnels was completed by early Christians, in an attempt to escape persecution. Although not an entire holiday in itself, it makes for an unusual trip out.

You don't have to travel abroad in order to offer your services as a volunteer. There are plenty of schemes at home that need help in many different capacities. There are also opportunities for whole families to volunteer, which is a great way to get the children thinking about their place in society and how they can make a difference.

Narrow boats.
With a mind-boggling choice of canals and rivers to choose from, narrow boats offer a means of slowing the pace of life down and truly learning to relax. River people tend to be friendly and welcoming and you'll make new friends along the way. You can explore at your own pace, stopping somewhere new every night or staying a while and exploring the surrounding countryside.

Canyons and Donkeys.
Everyone has heard of the awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, but there are any number of smaller, yet still impressively large canyons to be explored across the United States. Whether you want a day trip or want to experience a full week (or more) trekking, packing your belongings onto a donkey and exploring the base of these incredible natural wonders is a far cry from the ordinary view points experienced by most visitors.

When you start planning your next holiday, take a little time to think 'outside the box'. There are so many different opportunities to be had on this amazing planet, so why spend your time doing the same as everybody else? Try one of these trips and your memories and holiday snaps will be second to none.
