Spend more time with my kids
Treat the little ones to a cruise holiday where they can meet their favourite DreamWorks characters, from movies like Shrek or Madagascar, and zoom down some of the world's fastest waterslides at sea.
Family-friendly cruise ships include Royal Caribbean International's Allure of the Seas or Oasis of the Seas and Carnival Cruise Line's Carnival Dream and Carnival Magic.
Step outside of my comfort zone
Take the plunge on a bungee jump in Queenstown or climb Mount Everest in Nepal for the ultimate challenge.
Those looking to do something different can travel to Santa's workshop in Finland next year to ride a dog-sled through the snowy mountains or swap a hotel stay to sleep in a capsule in Tokyo.
Be more active
Sign up for a marathon in another country. Some popular options include New York, Paris or Boston.
Or suit up in safari gear and jump in a jeep to explore the African plains.
There are guided sightseeing trips that take you out to lions, giraffes, elephants and more.
Reconnect my mind, body and spirit
Yoga is one of the most beneficial ways to find inner peace and build core strength, so why not enrol in a yoga and meditation retreat in Bali, Thailand or India?
Some luxury resorts in South-East Asia offer complimentary daily yoga classes as part of the activities program, so it is worth asking when you book.
Closer to home, Byron Bay and the Gold Coast hinterland offer plenty of holistic escapes, from The Byron at Byron and Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat to the famous Golden Door Health Retreat.
Feed giant pandas in China, teach English at a children's orphanage in Kenya or work with the turtles on Costa Rica.
Giving back to a local community when you travel is rewarding, so a lot of travellers are combining holidays where they can volunteer and explore - a concept known as voluntourism.
Some of the best volunteer projects are led by experts on one-week, two-week, three-week or four-week placements, so you really can make a difference.
Learn something new
Cooking classes are available in most parts of Europe, whether you are travelling through Italy or island-hopping along the coast of San Sebastian in Spain.
See how limoncello is made from real lemons on the Amalfi Coast or learn to make pasta in Tuscany.
Discover the stories of Australia's war heroes on guided tours of the battlefields of France and Turkey.
Book your holiday in advance and be prepared for your trip early by doing your research. Enjoy the experience of planning a holiday, without the last-minute rush.
Celebrate another culture
Join Chinese New Year celebrations in February, or have fun on St Patrick's Day in Dublin or hoist beer steins at the annual Oktoberfest in Munich.
Other options include the Running of the Bulls in Spain and Hogmanay from New Year's Eve in Edinburgh.
