..that I plan on doing someday.
Save Place
1805 N 30th St, Colorado Springs, CO 80904, USA
Visiting family in Colorado meant outdoor excursions. No idea who the crazy guy on top was, but he was nice enough to pose...
Save Place
1860 Pittwater Rd, Church Point NSW 2104, Australia
Every Christmas Eve, just an hour's north of Sydney, there is a dog race like no other in the world. The Scotland Island Dog Race, located in the tranquil waters of Pittwater, is open to beasts from all over the bay and the aim is to swim from...
Save Place
Easter Island is a strange, remote, and magical place. After a full day of wandering around this tiny island, we were fortunate enough to witness an absolutely breathtaking sunset over the Pacific. The "beach" here is made up of pitch black...
Save Place
Av Central, León, Nicaragua
With my rudimentary Spanish, I hadn’t understood why a local suggested wearing long pants to the night’s festival. “Because of the fireworks,” she had said (I thought). The recommendation seemed odd considering the stifling heat and humidity. But...
Save Place
5 Geelbek St, Van Dyks Bay, Gansbaai, 7220, South Africa
The small town of Gansbaai, about an hour and a half from Cape Town, South Africa, is the Great White Shark capital of the world. Every winter scores of these ocean giants descend on the small channel between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock known...
Save Place
Pahang, Malaysia

We went to a butterfly garden in the Cameron Highlands where they happened to have a rather large pit of big black scary scorpions. Somehow this happened shortly after making friends with a guy that worked there.

Save Place
Level 2 Fun..That explains the experience getting to 10,000 ft on Mount Rainier; it's rough getting there but when you're done you realize it was rewarding and totally fun! The morning was crystal clear but winds were blowing at 50 mph-down from...
Save Place
Khok Yang, Nuea Khlong District, Krabi, Thailand
In the Thai mecca for rock climbing, Railay Beach, my friend and I did some fantastic cliff diving. Nothing gets your adrenaline pumping like climbing up the rock face and then diving into turquoise ocean water.
Save Place
Jordan
Climbing Wadi Rum feels a bit like you're rock climbing on Mars. There are several routes just outside of the little Bedouin town that serves as the entry to the park.
Save Place
Waitomo, New Zealand
I’m not afraid of heights, but I’ll admit that peering over the ledge into the 100-metre (about 330 feet) decent awaiting me sends me into a bit of a panic attack. I can’t see the bottom of the cave, as a thick layer of mist fills the gaping...
Save Place
Happy Isles, Yosemite Valley, CA 95389, USA
No other landmark in Yosemite is as well recognized and beloved as Half Dome, the steely granite monolith towering 4,347 feet above Yosemite Valley. Geologist Josiah Whitney declared it “inaccessible” in 1870 but was proven wrong only...
Save Place
Maui, Hawaii, USA
There's plenty of interesting wildlife on and around Hawaii, but you have to seek it out. Hike Oahu’s Makapu’u Point Lighthouse Trail for a chance to see humpbacks breaching offshore, then head to the North Shore to observe sea turtles basking on...
Save Place
Lysebotn, Norway
When visiting Norway, be sure to spend a day in Lysebotn, where base jumpers leap from mile-high cliffs over the fjords. There is a vibrant little community here, a fun bar and a few hostels and hotels. You can camp if you're on a budget, and the...
Save Place
Swakopmund, Namibia
It was our last day in Namibia and we decided to sign up for a sandboarding lesson in Swakopmund. Our two guides took us out to the desert where, after a strenuous hike up the dune, we strapped on snowboards and helmets and rode down the orange...
Save Place
25170 Aviation Ave, Davis, CA 95616, USA
Skydiving in Davis gets you a lot of farmland scenery, but on a clear day you can actually see the golden gate bridge way off in the distance.
Save Place
Bandiagara, Mali
The village of Borko is an oasis in Dogon Country. While the route from Bandiagara is dry and rocky, the area around Borko is very fertile and ideal for growing various types of produce because of its location along a waterway. This lazy waterway...
Save Place
Laughing Bird Caye, Belize
On approach, Laughing Bird Caye is breathtaking: a narrow island, lined with multiple palm trees, with a single thatch hut where a resident park ranger awaits to welcome and inform visitors. It's not so bad once you've arrived,...
Save Place
Arctic
I was paddling around a small cove in Southeast Alaska when a momma brown bear and her two cubs emerged from the edge of the forest. I sat quietly in my kayak watching them browse for food along the shoreline, occasionally lifting their noses to...
Save Place
Mt Shasta, CA 96067, USA
30 feet below the cornice of a narrow crevasse, I’m dangling like a marionette on a 9-mil rope, staring in awe at a rippling splinter of luminescent blue ice—the size of a 10-story building—jutting from a rift in the Hotlum glacier. And what’s...
