Winter is coming to an end and perhaps you’re thinking of ways to spend your Spring break or Summer holidays. No more hiding in the warmth of your homes away from the snow and bitter cold out there! Here are 10 unusual ways you could deviate from your typical travel narrative.

Forget selfies, embrace Dronies. Perhaps it’s because certain places like the museums are starting to ban selfie sticks. Well, whatever the reason for birthing the age of Dronies, one thing’s for sure – this switch comes at a much higher price. $1000 for a quadcopter instead of $30 for a selfie stick.
2. Visit the owl bar

Say hello to cocktails and owls in the heart of Soho, central London. Cat cafes are no longer the go-to for animal lovers. Instead, come March, a new collaboration between Locappy and the Barn Owl Centre of Gloucestershire is bringing about a new initiative known as Annie the Owl. Annie the Owl is a pop up bar open for quality owl time from 19-25 March and all profits will go towards the sanctuary for further conservation efforts. Support them now!
