Everybody has a bucket list. Embark on a white water rafting adventure, travel around the world, eat a slice of an incredible slice of pie. The list drags on and on and varies between each person. Unfortunately, bucket lists are nearly impossible to fulfill entirely. Perhaps the adventure is too costly or maybe there just isn’t enough time to do it all.
Here are some tips on what should be atop of your bucket list for those of you that can only squeeze one amazing, life altering adventure into your lifetime.
1. Skydive… OVER MOUNT EVEREST
How many times have you heard someone preach about how badass his or her skydiving adventure was? It’s something that is on nearly every person’s bucket list. I personally am sick of hearing about it, a small teenage girl with the courage of a wilted flower has the stomach to skydive. Do you want to do something truly extreme that makes your stomach turn faster than an apple turnover? Try the Everest Skydive; it’s skydiving only it overlooks the greatest mountain in the world.
2. Hike the Inca Trail.
This hike is no picnic, unless you were to carry the necessary materials 13,800 ft above sea level to supply a picnic. Located in the Andes Mountain Range, you will experience the ancient city of Machu Picchu. The breathtaking sights of the surrounding mountains as well as the ruins that still stand after centuries of abandonment is an unforgettable experience.
3. Stay in an Ice Hotel
Kill two birds with one stone on your next adventure and stay in one of these temporary hotels that are made entirely of ice. They can be found in Sweden, Japan, Canada, Norway and Romania. Perhaps you have taken an adventure to Japan to experience Kinseika Seika’s water cake and you need a place to stay, the ice hotel’s doors are open for you.
I want your bucket list to be unique, it’s important to see the world before our time is up. Not many people can say they have looked down on Mount Everest, explored the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu, or spent a night melting the sheets in an ice hotel. If you only have one shot to do something big, make sure you choose something unforgettable.
Note: Beds in ice hotel are not made of ice.
