Feeling Uninspired ?

Do something different. com

The website that offers unique travel experiences. Choose any destination including some Asian spots like Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia or choose the type of activity. They categorise them according to food tours, wine tours, sports, culture etc and there is even a segment called "once in a lifetime experiences". They include helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon at Sunset, Sydney bridge climb, tour of Paris in a classic car or Las Vegas Top Gun flight.

I liked the Food & Drink options where you can buy a tour to be shown local fresh markets in say San Franciso or Delhi very Anthony Bourdain.

Or you can go on a camel safari and have a Bedouin dinner in the desert under stars and around a fireplace while being entertained by music and dancing.

It reminds me of the School of Life in London. I read about them in Monocle last year and it is a shop that offers the world-weary, overworked and uninspired a buffet of out of the box experiences.

School of Life's calendar is filled with philosophy workshops, conversation dinners, holidays in unexpected places even secular sermons.
