Pirates, traveling is all about getting out of your comfort zone and being open to new experiences. For many people, nudity can be extremely liberating and can even help participants lower social pretenses. Veteran naturists will often tell you that nudism can bring you to your most natural state, where societal restraints like economic class can be shed along with your clothes. Just think—in the nude you can't tell a banker from a waiter! Plus, even the most everyday experiences can gain an element of fun and adventure when done in the nude.
Feeling inspired? We've found seven activities around the world that you can do in your birthday suit. So leave your clothing (and inhibitions) behind and get ready to make some body-positive vacation memories.
