To avoid the deserts of Australia, to observe under natural conditions the life of a Koala, kangaroo, Dingo dogs, spudded in the jungle (the largest river in the world – the Amazon, unearth ancient burial mounds in Mongolia. All this devoid of the monotony of the traditional holiday, which takes place on trampled by thousands of people route. The question arises is just one way to get there?

A standard set of treasure hunt: travel gear, shovel and a metal detector. To make it more fun create a team of like-minded people. Just keep in mind that the likelihood is low that your expedition will pay off. If you're going somewhere, you need to do not at random, and the results of the research. You will have to sit in libraries and archives to find something really worthwhile.
Another option is to enroll as a volunteer in the state expedition. However, perform you will have the most menial jobs: dig, sift the soil, and so on. Your work will not be paid, but you can smell the dust of ages. In addition, your accommodation and travel will be paid. To find information about the expeditions, read a newspaper, watch the news.
