Some Places Offer Trips to the Unknown

When Dena Espenscheid answered an advertisement on social media, her sister warned her that she could have problems.

The ad was a weekend vacation to an unknown destination.

The offer was not only real, but also a lot of fun. In fact, Espenscheid told The Associated Press that she "had a blast."

The West Virginia Division of Tourism organized the free trip earlier this month. The goal was to advertise West Virginia as a perfect place to visit during the autumn months.

The social media ad said next to nothing about the destination. It suggested only that people wear layered clothes and strong footwear. It also recommended they have a sense of adventure.

Mystery trips becoming more popular

In parts of the United States, mystery trips have grown into their own industry. Whether traveling by bus, train or airplane, these vacations have different lengths, costs and destinations.

Often, organizers give people a general idea about where they are going. But sometimes they do not.

Denise Chaykun Weaver started Magical Mystery Tours nearly 10 years ago. Her company now helps to plan hundreds of trips every year.

"There's this magical thing about a mystery trip in that you don't have control. You don't know where you're going," she said. "Surprises are really fun."

Other companies offering mystery tours include Pink Bus Mystery Trips, Pack Up + Go and SurpriseMeTrips. Rustic Pathways specializes in summer group tour packages for students.

Mystery is part of the adventure

The group Dena Espenscheid went with enjoyed dinner, nature and horseback riding. They visited the former coal mining and timber towns of Davis and Thomas. They watched musical acts at a former general store and spent the night at Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center.

By sunset the following night, Espenscheid was back home, and her sister did not have to worry any longer.

"I would absolutely do it again," Espenscheid said. "It got me out of my comfort zone. If I can sign up for another destination unknown where I'm not planning anything? It's part of the adventure."

I'm John Russell.

神秘之旅越来越受欢迎

当德娜·埃斯潘沙伊德(Dena Espenscheid)在社交媒体上回复一则广告时,她的姐姐警告她,她可能会遇到麻烦。

这则广告介绍的是前往未知目的地过周末。

这个广告不仅真实,而且有趣。事实上,埃斯潘沙伊德告诉美联社,她“玩得很尽兴”。

本月初,西弗吉尼亚州旅游局组织了这次免费旅行。他们旨在宣传西维吉尼亚是秋季旅游的绝佳去处。

这则社交媒体上的广告几乎没有提及目的地。它只建议人们穿分层类衣物和结实的鞋子。此外,还建议参与者要富有冒险精神。

神秘之旅愈加受欢迎

在美国的部分地区,神秘之旅已经发展成为他们自身的产业。不管是乘公共汽车、火车还是坐飞机旅行,假期的时段、费用和目的地都不相同。

通常情况下,组织者会让参加者对前往的目的地有一个大致的概念。但有时他们不会透露。丹尼斯·齐昆·韦弗(Denise Chaykun Weaver)大约10年前创立了魔法神秘之旅公司。她的公司现在每年都会策划数百次旅行。

“神秘之旅的神奇之处在于你无法控制。你不知道你要去哪里,”她说。“这种惊喜真的很有趣。”

其他提供神秘之旅的公司还包括Pink Bus Mystery Trips、Pack Up + Go和surprise emetrips。Rustic Pathways专门为学生提供的夏季旅行团套餐。

神秘是冒险的一部分

埃斯潘沙伊德随行的团队享用了晚餐、领略了大自然还骑了马。他们参观了以前的煤矿和木材城镇戴维斯和托马斯。他们在一家曾经是杂货店的地方观看了音乐表演,还留宿在迦南谷度假酒店和会议中心。

第二天傍晚,埃斯潘沙伊德安全返家,她的姐姐再也不用担心了。

埃斯潘沙伊德表示,“我绝对会再来一次。”“这让我走出了自己的舒适区。如果我可以报名参加另一个我没有任何计划的目的地呢?这也是冒险的一部分。”
