Some people like celebrating their birthdays, while some don’t. Some of those who like celebrating their birthdays like to celebrate it intimately, whereas others prefer making a huge celebration. Everyone perceives their birthday in a different way and it’s totally individual. Of course, even though it’s not easy throwing a birthday party, it is still easier to do it when you are at home, in a familiar place. What makes organizing a birthday party more difficult is being away. When we’re on the road, either for business or pleasure, everything is unfamiliar to us. Hence it seems that we need a double effort in order to throw a lovely birthday party. However, with these practical tips, organizing a birthday party when travelling is a piece of cake.

Among the best ways to organize a birthday party on the road are a virtual party – many people have resorted to it during the pandemic. Next, come some spectacular activities which can boost your party. Additionally, you can pamper yourself with a fancy hotel room. What you could also do is try a local birthday custom or indulge in a new experience. Read about different creative party ideas that work for 40-year olds, 30-year olds and even 20-year olds!

1. Throw a virtual party

Throwing virtual parties has gained huge popularity since the coronavirus outbreak. It was imposed by lockdown and other restrictions. However, nowadays, when these have been slowly loosened, this practice has remained present but serves other purposes. For instance, one such occurrence is celebrating a birthday with people who are far away. What happened is that people started organizing virtual birthday parties using Zoom or other platforms, when not being around for their birthday. It’s a great way to celebrate a birthday with your dear people when you’re on the road. Make a guest list and send invites to all the dear people – your party is easily going international. All your friends from around the globe – New York, London, Sydney – can be with you for your special day.

2. Choose some spectacular activities

There are tons of activities you can include in your party and their choice highly depends on the location. So, for instance, if you are in Thailand, you can treat yourself to birthday diving or visiting the Elephant Nature Park. On the other hand, if you’re in New South Wales, you can opt for a photo booth hire in Sydney and make some awesome birthday pics.

3. Pamper yourself with a fancy hotel room

If you’ve never stayed at a fancy hotel, or you did, and you enjoy it quite much, then perhaps you could consider pampering yourself with a fancy hotel room. This can be a truly great birthday experience. As it is quite specific and expensive, it is usually very intimate, including only your partner, best friend or family. Splurging on a local fancy hotel room can make your special day even more special. It especially means a lot if it means staying in one of the world’s most renowned hotels such as The Plaza in New York City.

4. Try a local birthday custom

Depending on where we are abroad at the moment of our birthday, birthday celebration customs can differ a little or a lot. One of the best pieces of advice we can give you, to make your birthday awesome, is to go for a local birthday custom. You can talk to locals, or search online what people usually do. Of course, you’ll make the final decision based on your preferences. Out of all the customs, there will probably be some that you find exciting and amusing. When something is local, it’s much easier to find all the necessary supplies needed for the party – keep that in mind.

5. Indulge in a new experience

A new country offers a wide array of fresh experiences. What you should do is make use of them. At least some of them. With each trip, we learn something new and broaden our horizons as well as knowledge. We learn to be open-minded and to accept other cultures. What can make the travel experience even more memorable is indulging in some new, exciting experiences? Think about the things that you’ve always wanted to do and dare to do them. Go for bungee jumping, sky diving or an adrenaline jet ski ride. Life is short and we should make every moment count.

Celebrating a birthday abroad can be quite different from celebrating it at home. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. It’s just ‘different’ fun, so try to be open-minded about it.
