Top Five To-Do Adventures Once You Are Vaccinated
There are few things that we missed more during the pandemic than going out into the world for the adventure of a lifetime. There is really something about traveling to unfamiliar places and challenging yourself. Maybe it’s the thought that you’re doing what many others can only dream about or maybe it’s because you feel empowered when on the edge of your comfort zone.
For those who are looking for the most stimulating activities once they’ve been vaccinated, here’s a top five list for you:
- Go on a rafting trip down the Grand Canyon. This gorge was carved by the Colorado River over the course of millions of years and is one of the world’s most amazing natural wonders. Most people can only see it on postcards or books, but the Canyon has a different, more enigmatic feel when you’re at ground zero.You may need to prepare for some difficult rapids that you might negotiate while you’re on the river. However, nothing beats having a more intimate experience with the Grand Canyon’s awesome geological history.
- Dive into the Great Barrier Reef. This is the most extensive reef system in the world and is located in Australia. It is a maze of islets, atolls, and submerged sandbars with a lot of unexpected surprises at every turn. Ever dream of swimming with stingrays or tiger sharks? You can do it here. Of course, you need to be careful and make sure to get the run down from us before going on one of these trips. But if everything checks out, it will be one of the greatest experiences of your life.
- Visit the wildlife reserves in Africa. There are plenty of these animal preserves on the continent and two of the more popular are Kruger National Park and Serengeti National Park. Although they are in different countries, you can have encounters with wild dogs, hyenas, the great herds of herbivores and lions in both parks. If you’re into watching the “Circle of Life” being played raw in nature, this is an experience that you should not miss.
- Go full-on crazy at Victoria Falls. Of course, you can simply watch while the largest waterfall in the world plunges down into the Zambezi River but where’s the fun in that? How about you actually get in the the rapids of the river just past the falls? You can also go ahead and bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge in full view of the foamy and misty falls.
- Hike to the Everest base camp. If you think that this is an easy one, then I’m afraid you’re mistaken. It takes a fortnight to complete round trip, and most hikers are not allowed to stay at the camp. It’s really for those that are there to reach the summit. But being at the foothills of the tallest mountain in the world is something you will remember for years to come.
Going on one of these adventures means different things to certain people. However, it is a chance to meet like-minded people and share experiences that you will never forget.
