Must Have Adventures in your Bucket List
Just imagine if you are lying on a beach in Hawaii, enjoying the breeze as it touches you, having a sunbath, drinking a couple of beers and suddenly your vacation gets over. So are you going to tell your colleagues that you took a sunbath in Hawaii which you can also take from your roof or that you enjoyed the breeze and beers after going all the way to Hawaii? I hope not. The point is, what’s the point of spending your hard-earned money and doing all the same things that we do at our home or in our own city? Do you know that you can also hike on an active volcano or swim with whales in Hawaii? That seems like a tale worth telling.
Peace is abundant (not many people realise that) but adventures are rare. Peace is a state of mind which can be achieved anywhere in the world. Yes, even when you are on a local train in Mumbai. But for the adventures, you need some unexpected and never-like-before experience, which can be done only in some places. Some adventures spike the adrenaline rush while some bring you closer to nature, but one thing is sure that every adventure is going to make you the storyteller among the people who go to enjoy the breeze in beaches. While you can always use Farenexus to search the best flight prices – allow us to introduce you to some famous adventures around the World.
1. Skydiving at Interlaken, Switzerland
If falling from 10000 feet or more cannot rush the adrenaline in your body then what can? Skydiving is an ultimate experience that is a must-have in your travel bucket list. But why Interlaken, Switzerland? First of all, it’s Switzerland and second, falling around the Alps can make anyone fall for it. The experience is breath-taking and something that every travel junkie should crave for. It can cost you around 500-600 CAD, but every single penny is worth it.
2. Srinagar-Leh Highway Road Trip
This is sureshot going to be the most memorable bike trip you are ever going to have. It’s been said that if there is heaven on earth, then it is on Kashmir. This road trip is going to be over 400 km long consisting of views of Himalayan Range, the world’s tallest mountain range. But it’s not just a road trip with views, the places alongside it are also worth putting it in your diary. Dal lake, Sonmarg, the Drass Valley, Kargil are just to name a few places that you will encounter on your road trip. Ever seen a car or bike being pulled uphill on its own? Don’t be afraid, Magnetic hills will show you that as well.
3. Live a Ferrari life in Ferrari World, Abu Dhabi
Ever wanted to buy a Ferrari? Well, who doesn’t? But it might take some years and lots of savings to ever buy one. Don’t feel sad, the good news is that Ferrari has a theme park in Abu Dhabi that you can afford a lot quicker.

4. Swim at the infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore
Nobody is unaware of the awesomeness of Singapore and its skyline, right? But what if I tell you that you can enjoy the skyline while bathing in an infinity pool. An infinity pool is a swimming pool that creates an illusion that it has no end. A pool filled till its brink often causes the water to overflow over an edge causing the reflection and thus the illusion. These type of pools are often created to blend with sea, ocean or sky giving you a rare experience. This infinity pool in Singapore is the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool and is on the 57th storey. This one is only accessible to people staying at Marina Bay Sands but well worth the money for unique experience seekers.
5. Surmount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania
Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest mountain and also the world’s tallest freestanding mountain i.e. a mountain that does not belong to a range. It’s said that it was the resultant of a volcanic eruption. But there are other taller mountains as well so why Kilimanjaro? Because this beautiful mountain is comparatively easier to climb as it does not require any tools like rope, axe etc to surmount it. Take it more as mountaineering, not hiking. Kilimanjaro has 5 climatic zones and as we move towards the peak, the temperature also falls. But it won’t be as extreme as Everest. Generally, anyone over 10 has permission to climb this mountain, with few exceptions.
6. Underwater experience in Great Barrier Reef
Probably the best waters to experience the underwater life as it boasts over 1500 species of fish, 17 species of sea snake, 6 of sea turtles, 125 of sharks, stingray, skates or chimaera and many more. If you are lucky then you will also spot a Minke whale as well. You don’t need to be a scuba diver or a swimmer have your eyes on these creatures. You can enjoy it through mini-submarines or walk along the seabed. Not only just underwater, but over-the-water experiences are also mind-blowing. This beautiful reef consists of a large number of islands and many can be enjoyed privately. Or you can take a bird view of this amazing creation through an aeroplane.
7. Ride the Glacier Express in Switzerland
Staring outside the Glacier Express through the window will absolutely make you fall in love with Switzerland, such is the level of exquisiteness during that trip. It covers a distance of around 260 KMs in 7.5 hours, but every second will bring out an eye-popping view. During its journey, it will pass through 291 bridges and 91 tunnels to make your journey more exciting. The dots connected by it are Zermatt and St. Moritz. Without a fraction of doubt in my mind, it should be among the top priorities in your travel bucket list.
Among the biggest regret human can have, one is the regret of collecting enough money to go to travel as much as we want one day, only to realise that now it’s too late. Experiences are what makes life worthwhile and exciting. Money is the resultant of your skills whereas experience is the resultant of your guts and your belief in the skills you possess to attract the money back. So keep faith in yourself and your skills and crave for an adventurous life. To find cheap flight tickets, check out Farenexus – it Compares Flight Prices and helps to find the best flight deals.
