If one section of this newsletter would best answer the question, “Do you have something different?” then this grouping of ideas is going to take some beating. From getting involved with your hands to getting up in the air to taking in nature, this mix of activities takes a very different path from the norm.
There is the buzz of working with bees in Copenhagen – becoming a honey thief for the day, learning all about bees, how they work and why we all need them. And sampling different honey tastes from the different districts around the city.
Make sure there are no sticky hands for the glass class of Istanbul. Learn the story of glass and how to make glass as you play with colourful pieces and old craft techniques. Take the piece you made home, as you do with the Batik workshop of Malaysia – enjoy the expression of painting that is both art and craft.
Paint in a very different way in Riga – take cans to the streets of the graffiti workshop and spray away in a safe, relaxed environment (all before taking a street art tour to compare how you did with the pros). Or play it cool and really break the ice, with ice carving (available all year round). You can also get a graffiti lesson in Zurich.
Hands are needed to drink in the Blind Bar of Budapest – only the waiters can see anything, equipped with a special device. The rest of the crowd has to find their way around this truly unique experience – and ignore the dark. All the better to head to the light then afterwards, hopping into a balloon and floating in air.
The experience turns around in Vilnius by starting the day off in a spectacular morning balloon flight – which is allowed to fly over the city itself. On landing, you can take the really very unique experience of commanding a tank and driving it round the Tankodrome tank.
Whether gentle or adrenaline, whether with nature or with art and crafts, light or dark, there is a range of really unusual things to entertain.
These and so many other different ideas are just part of our #euromictags itineraries series.
