It can be very challenging to keep your health in mind and stay fit while on vacation. I know it’s the last thing I think about when I’m heading to a new place – I’m generally too excited seeing all the sights, trying all the food and (let’s face it) drinking a bunch of local beers and regional wine. Who has got time for worrying about exercise?
However, you can’t ignore your body’s needs just because you’re on a trip, especially if you’re traveling long-term! But good news – it isn’t impossible to stay healthy (mind, body & soul) while on vacation. In fact, the following activities could help make your trip even better! And they won’t hurt your wallet – if you’re into cheap travel, the majority of these activities are free (or damn close to it!). Win win, am I right?

I recently went on a bike tour of Barcelona, and found it to be a great and rewarding way to explore the city. Even though I’ve lived here for 4 years now, I was able to explore some new things and see everything from a different perspective. I’ve also done a free walking tour, which is a great way to get acquainted with the city and meet like-minded travelers! My next goal is to find a more or less quiet area to practice yoga or meditate out in nature.
