Plan a Trip Around an Inline Marathon

by Kathie Fry of SkateLog.com

Would you like your family and loved ones to get as excited about traveling to inline skating marathons as you do? Here's one way to make that happen. When you travel to a skating marathon, allocate a few extra days for a special holiday. If you do this whenever you travel to a skating event, soon you will see eyes lighting up around you whenever you announce a new marathon you would like to skate. If you make your post-marathon trips enough fun, you might even find your husband or wife scouting out new skating events, hoping to inspire another great trip.

Make Each Trip Special
A trip to a skating event can be fun for skaters and non-skaters alike if you plan some special activities after the event is over. If you're traveling with your "significant other", look for a romantic bed and breakfast inn where you can sleep late in the morning and skate or cycle every afternoon to an idyllic location for a sunset picnic dinner. If you're traveling with kids, look for a national or regional park where you can go camping, hiking, swimming, or kayaking. Almost everyone will enjoy a beach resort, mountain hideaway, or local theme park, and practically every town has its own unique museums and historic sights.

Plan Your Trip
Do some research in advance, so you won't miss the best attractions in the area you are visiting. Official tourist offices for every country in the world are listed at my newest Web site, CountriesAndCities.com (http://www.countriesandcities.com).

Skate First, Play Later
Schedule your holiday after the skating event so you can relax and enjoy the trip, and not spend every spare minute training and worrying about how well you will skate. If You Can't Be With the One You Love...
LOVE THE ONE YOU'RE WITH! Remember that song when you travel to a destination that is not a well-known tourist destination. Every part of the world is special in its own way, and each has its own unique opportunities for relaxation, entertainment, and recreation. Find out what the locals do for fun. The best adventure of all, and what makes traveling the most fun, is exploring each area, meeting the people, and discovering the hidden treasures each place has to offer.

Selecting a Marathon Destination
Planning an inline skating marathon holiday can be approached in two different ways: (1) select a country you have always wanted to visit, and find out if that country has an inline skating marathon, or (2) select a marathon you have always wanted skate, and plan a trip around that event.

More About Inline Marathons
For information about specific marathon destinations see Part 2 of this article, "Inline Marathon Destinations" and Lauri Dowling's "Guide to Inline Marathons".
