If you are interested in travels, you probably know that it is not about the places you visit, but the emotions that a certain place evokes in you. Whether you like city breaks or luxurious getaway, the essence of each travel is the feeling of belonging to scenery or cultural environment, as well as the new information and experience you obtain during each travel. This time, we will skip the lovely and luxurious castles, and we will talk about places which cause an adrenaline rush. So, here we go.
Visit the volcanoes in Iceland
Iceland is an enigmatic and mysterious land. If you love to climb volcano crater or bask in some of the most beautiful hot springs or thermal pools in the world, Iceland could be just the right choice for you.
Alternatively, you can enjoy the scenery and witness the power of Gullfoss and the waterfalls of Hraunfossar.
Diving with sharks in Australia
In case you are extremely brave and enjoy plunging into the big blue, the place to visit is the Australian coast, as well as some of the islands nearby.
Cage dive is the experience you do not want to miss if you wish to meet the great white shark up, close and personal. Meeting one of the largest predators will make your holiday unforgettable.
Desert experience in Egypt
There is nothing that can compare to the feeling of watching the stars while standing in complete silence in one of Egypt’s deserts. And I speak from experience! Desert is most probably the only place on earth where a man is faced directly and inevitably with himself as part of the universe.
Additionally, if you go there with an organized group (which is a smart way to go), you will surely visit a Bedouin village and try some of their local pastries and tea. If they feel inspired and decide to perform some music for you, the experience would be fulfilling. As for adrenaline rush, you can always book a safari trip or drive the quad bike.
World’s highest cliff jump in Queenstown, New Zealand
If you are into bungee jumping, Queenstown is the place to visit. It is considered the bungee capital of the world. Now, you need to be both physically and mentally prepared for such an endeavor in order to minimize the possibility of getting hurt. If your inner compass tells you this is the place to go, here are some facts:
Kawaru Bridge Bungee is one of the first places that opened the door to this kind of extreme sports. It is 43 meters high, and there is a “water touch” and “tandem option” as well. However, as previously said, you should inform yourself thoroughly about requirements and medical condition standards before you decide to jump.
Cooper’s Hill Cheese Rolling
I must admit I was stunned when I first heard about this event. It is held each year on Cooper’s Hill near Gloucester in England. Nowadays, it is more or less spontaneously organized, and there is no official management handling this event. However, each year, as many as thousands of people gather on the hill, not just from the UK, but USA, Australia, New Zeland, etc., and chase the round Double Gloucester cheese downhill. The cheese is approximately 9 pounds heavy and thrown from the top of the hill. The winner is the fastest person to get to the bottom of the hill. The winner gets the cheese as a reward. It may sound strange, but the cheese can develop the speed up to 70 miles per hour. The possibility of injuring while running down the hill is very high and therefore there is always an ambulance nearby. If you are a cheese lover and like running like crazy, Cooper’s Hill should be your choice.
Alternatively, there is always the possibility that you like to experience adrenaline from the comfort of your home.
