The more I travel, the more I dream of new places I want to visit and things I want to experience - dreams inspire me to go out there and live life to the fullest, and often I’ve dreamed of things that a few months or years later have become a reality.
It’s important to have specific dreams. Dream Big. Dream without fear. – Randy Pausch
These are some adventures I dream of doing in the next few years …
Paragliding in Cape Town, South Africa
The best photos I’ve seen of Cape Town have all been from above, the city is just breath taking, especially with the beautiful coast line and lush hills surrounding the city.
So I can’t imagine a better place to paraglide than in Cape Town, and a chance to take in the views in peace and quiet.
Horse Riding in Iceland
I admit that last time I rode a horse, I didn’t have the best experience, and that annoyed me – I used to horse ride as a child, and I wish I wouldn’t have quit so early – today I dream of galopping along beaches and beautiful landscapes, although maybe on a smaller horse than on my previous horse riding trip in Portugal.
Going horse riding in Iceland’s Golden Circle past waterfalls, hot springs, geysers and lava fields on the small but stron Icelandic horses seems like the most amazing experience.
Helicopter Tour in Hawaii
With its unique volcanic landscape, cliffs, beaches and craters, Hawaii has an incredible nature that I can’t wait to experience. And seeing it all from above in a helicopter would be epic!
It would be a great opportunity to see remote places that you normally wouldn’t be able to reach, and flying in a helicopter is half the fun..!
Scuba Diving in The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
So large you can see it from space, the Great Barrier reef is almost like an “underwater country”, comprising 400 separate reefs, cays and islands – with over 1500 species of fish and 1500 shipwrecks – the Great Barrier Reef sounds like my kind of playground!
But I would like to do more than just an overnight trip to scuba dive – the dream would be to spend a couple of weeks sailing around the reefs and go snorkeling and diving at my own pace.
Bike Down The Death Road in Bolivia
We’ve written about it before, and when Andrew Tipp wrote a guest post on our site it really inspired me to want to do the trip myself and bike down the Death Road in Bolivia - not only are the surroundings beautiful, but I like a road with a bit of gritty history and it would definitely be an experience to remember.
I hope my dream adventures have inspired you to dream of your own future adventure – where would you go and what would you do?
