The world has a lot to offer us especially when we think about travelling. The question now is, what do we do when we’ve decided to spend that money on travelling? Do you do the same boring thing, or do you take an adventure that you will remember for the rest of your life.
Why not take a hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. Create a memory that will last and experience an African safari mixed with a balloon adventure and float over the beautiful Serengeti, home to the largest mammal migration on the planet. Sunrise over the golden grassy plains is exquisite, as are the estimated two million wildebeest, half a million gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra that roam free in the region. On top of all that, you can see the Big Five and other wild animals as you fly through the air looking down on one of God’s finest creations.
Istanbul, Turkey is a hub where east meets west and is considered a jewel of Europe. Formally known as Constantinople and capital of the Eastern Roman empire, the city is covered in history. Just by taking a look at the amazing structures that still stand from the times of the Roman and Ottoman Empires you can see this. There is so much to do here, from spending a day at one of the beautiful beaches to a hot air balloon ride over ancient Roman ruins. In a city with so much culture you could spend a year here to discover everything it has to offer, but only a second is needed to fall in love with it.
Alaska is America’s final adventure land, a land of forests, glaciers and wildlife and mountains, it is remote which makes it all the more appealing to adventurers. Imagine taking a cruise here, so why not do it? Travel through the Inside Passage and gulf of Alaska. Most cruises stick to Southeast Alaska’s Inside Passage, sailing round-trip from Seattle or Vancouver or going north or southbound between Vancouver and Seward or Whittier, one of Anchorage’s main port towns. On the cruise you will be able to see the natural areas along the gulf and be able to embark on tours to land and explore a bit of this frozen wonderland. Something out of the blue that will guarantee a lifelong memory.
Machu Picchu Peru is one of the world’s greatest marvels and if you are an adventure nut you would be a fool not to experience the wonder that is Machu Picchu. Take a trek on the Inca Trails and reach the famous ancient ruined city. Machu Picchu offers much and sees tourists from around the world flock to its site. The Inca’s have left us something truly great and you would be lucky to be able to visit this amazing site.
Backpacking through Thailand is a true adventure experience, with jungles, massive cities and beaches straight out of your wildest dreams. Thailand has something to offer for all. Whether you wish to shop in Bangkok or one of the hubs of commercial Thailand (beware, the barter is not for all), take a trip in the jungle and go on an elephant ride or my favourite, backpack from beach to beach. Phi Phi beach is one of the most beautiful places in the world and will leave you breathless as you wade through the sparkling blue water and relax while baking under the Asian sun.
