Travel and have an adventure.
Don't hold back on your next trip!
Of late, regular travel has become predictable and boring. With falling airfares and the resulting increase of package tours becoming the most common way of vacationing, traveling has become uninspiring and monotonous.
That feeling of adventure that traveling is supposed to evoke
has become jaded. This is what has given rise to a new form of travel these days
– Adventure Travel! Adventure travel is not only popular with the adrenaline
filled youth, but is increasingly being taken up by people of older generations
too, because of greater fitness, health, leisure time and economic prosperity.
Adventure travel usually takes us into close proximity with
Mother Nature at her rawest best. It also often introduces us to new peoples and
cultures, thus broadening our perspective about the world we live in.
You may choose to try parasailing into the updrafts from
vertiginous cliffs, bungee jump off precarious toe-holds, or ski down
hair-raisingly steep mountain sides. If it is thrills you are looking for, there
is no dearth of them.
For example, you could float up above the African veld in a
hot air balloon to watch lions stalking their prey below, or take a walking tour
of the ancient Angkor Wat temple smothered in the Cambodian jungles, or hike
through the forest trails in the Amazonian jungles experiencing the exotic wild
life there like the Caymans snoozing on the banks of the rivers or the brightly
hued parrots squawking in the canopy of branches overhead.
Or perhaps you would like something more solitary and gentle. If so, there are still unspoiled beaches that are virtually deserted and exist for you to immerse yourself in the sun-splashed splendor of yellow sands and azure seas.
Or, if you want something a little livelier, how about surfing off the coast of Costa Rica? All of these provide a way of being a part of adventure travel, without it getting too hazardous.
