Travelling is an incredible thing that we get to do in order to see more. A lot of people hold back from venturing out because they’re scared – whether they admit it or not – and that’s okay. Travel can be a very intimidating thing to do because essentially you’re going somewhere you’ve never been before with new people, new cultures, new languages, new foods, and new surroundings – but that’s the beauty of it. You wouldn’t believe how much diversity there really is until you go off and explore.
It’s always a good idea to keep a little notebook so you can scribble things down in there of what you’d like to do. This list will grow and grow as you cross more things off. You may bump into some locals and they tell you about a hidden gem restaurant that has the absolute best food – write it down.
Here are some more things you should have in that notebook of yours.
Swim with dolphins (in their natural environment!)
People always dream about swimming with dolphins since they were a little child. It’s one of those things that warms the heart because they’re such stunning, inquisitive, intelligent creatures. But if you’re considering it – please don’t go to a pool to do it. They shouldn’t be in captivity, they should be out in the great big ocean – that’s their home. There are plenty of excursions that take you out on a boat and you ride off into the middle of nowhere, only to be greeted by these beauties that just want to play and cure their curiosity. Allowing you to get in the big blue and have an unforgettable experience with them.
Hot air balloon
Let’s face it, as intimidating as the idea is of floating around in the sky in a basket, there is something so exciting and even romantic about it all, drifting up, weightless, above everything on the ground. So you can’t pass up this opportunity to see the world from a new perspective. Aerogelic Ballooning has over 30 years of experience so you are guaranteed the best service around. Not only that, but you can make a whole day of it with champagne breakfasts, dinners, and let’s not forget dessert.
Jump out of an airplane
For all you adrenaline junkies out there, something you just can’t pass up is the chance to throw yourself out of an aeroplane. The thought is an absolutely petrifying one, and yet the rush that comes with it is one that needs to be experienced. If you’re doing it for the first time, choose somewhere with a beautiful scenery so you really get the whole effect. Not only will you be secured to a pro, free falling through the sky, but once you pull the shoot and stabilize – you have to open your eyes as there is so much to take in, it’d be a waste if you didn’t!
