World’s Most Extreme Holidays for Adrenaline Junkies
13,000 feet in temperatures as low as -35C
Highlight of this seven day expedition
Activities include ice climbing, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding and fat tyre biking across the snow-covered wilderness.
Prices start from £22,095 for seven night package
Strand Yourself on a Desert Island
You can be stranded on a small deserted island for as many days as you want, sans-guide, where you will have to build your own shelter and fish for your own sustenance.
An emergency contact will be ready to step from a neighbouring island if required.
Several packages and different islands on offer, ranging in intensity from “low” with the option of having a rustic cottage to stay in, basic food and a guide to accompany you; to the “extreme” and “survival” experiences.
Bounce into an Active Volcano
You will be dropped from a helicopter bringing you within “700ft of the actual pool of molten lava”
This six-day tour includes skydiving and whitewater rafting
Prices start at £12,500 per person
Surf Down an Active Volcano
The youngest volcano in this country has been one of the most active and attracted avid “volcano boarders” who hike up to the top of it, which takes an hour – then hurtle down it, which takes a few minutes on a snowboard.
Swim with Orcas
These are killer whales – not known to be dangerous to humans unless in captivity.
Swimming amid these six ton creatures, is unlikely to be a banal experience.
Dive with Sharks
You will be in a cage, roped to the side of a boat, but those bars will not do much to ease your heart rate as you are being circled by these imposing creatures.
Sleep on the Edge of a Cliff
This company will assist you in abseiling down a rock face off the coast and set you up for the night on a “portaledge” – a fabric covered platform suspended horizontally on a vertical cliff.
The sort of open-air camping experience that barely qualifies as camping.
Most Radioactive Place on the Planet
Tours and accommodation of Chernobyl.
Visitors are checked for radioactive particles when they leave.
Pool decks on cruise ships are getting ever more elaborate with everything from pool-side movie theaters to outdoor bars and lounges, casual dining venues and even private cabanas.
An online company exists to document the travellers who have ticked off nearly every corner of the globe.
The website breaks the world down into 871 places – from countries and territories to island groups, enclaves and exclaves.
They have over 18,000 members who have all signed up to see them all.
Would the following questions be worth considering if after every holiday we cannot feel any real change in our daily life –
Could it be possible that we made the most of the all-inclusive breakfasts on holiday, which is loaded with breads and pastries full of Gluten?
Could it be possible that the War Inside Us continues, but on holiday we were able to simply bury it with our distractions and excess drink and food consumption?
Could it be possible that our Pot (marijuana) smoking got worse on holiday and we get back to realise we are super addicted to it?
Could it be possible that we turn a blind eye to those countries we visit where modern day slavery is even worse than the old days and they call it People Trafficking?
Could it be possible that we visit a country where FGM is not something we want to know about, even if it is going on under our nose?
Could it be possible that we lose ourselves in the Sports holiday and do not care about looking after our body, our environment or anything for that matter?
Could it be possible that when something goes wrong on holiday we just Blame, as that’s the easy option for us?
Could it be possible that even knowing there are Earthquakes happening, we hope we are going to be ok if our holiday is in that country?
Could it be possible we observe stuff on holiday, but have this habit of Doing Nothing instead of Doing Something?
Could it be possible that we would never call it a holiday if there was no Alcohol, as that’s what makes it a break away from life?
Could it be possible that we just do not want to know the real truth about Alcohol – that it is a scientific proven poison?
Would it bother us if others knew about our behaviour on holiday?
Would we die at the thought of our parents finding out about our wild holiday behaviour on Social Media?
When it comes to booking our next holiday is wanting More More More the only thing on our minds?
Are we worried about going on holiday because we are not sure the latest quick fix Diet is going to work?
Are we being Fooled by all the adverts that keep creating new and exciting ways to grab our attention until we book that holiday?
Are holidays for us part of our desire for a Perfect Life?
Do we make sure we are celebrating the New Year far away from home land, as it might help us forget the awful year that just passed?
Do we wish we had a simple easy Recipe for Life that brings us value and meaning, so that we can stop trying to find this in a holiday?
Do we make sure we record all our TV soap operas, reality shows and the sports channels, so we can catch up when we get back from holiday?
WHY are we masters of overdoing the eating and drinking on our hols?
WHY is it that after every holiday we feel under the weather, run down and have the Common Cold symptoms?
WHY is it that some of us still come back from our sun filled holiday with Cold Hands and Cold Feet?
WHY do we have this habit of making our Focus at work about our next holiday instead of the job we are paid to do?
WHY are we so Bored with Life that the only thing that perks us up from our butts is going on holiday – anywhere?
WHY do we dream about one day having the wonga to go Business Class on holiday but coach class seems to be the standard so far?
WHY are we being ripped off with the currency exchange rates and who really benefits?
WHY is a summer holiday not enough, that we need to book a getaway in D E C E M B E R before Christmas descends on us?
WHY do some of us dread the thought of a Family holiday because we just don’t like being around them?
WHY do we suffer so badly from the Just Incase Syndrome when it comes to holiday luggage?
WHY are we using our holidays like a Solution to fix us from the ill choices we have made up until that point?
WHY have we put so much emphasis and effort on a holiday, in the hope it will bring us the Happiness we have longed for?
WHY do some of us genuinely come back from holiday with Depression?
WHY do some of us like the holidays where we just Sit on the Fence and let the world go by, like it has nothing to do with us?
WHY do we have this insatiable need to travel all around the Earth?
WHY are we busy Listening to Other People and what they do and don’t do on their holidays?
WHY are our holidays a licence to smoke even more cigarettes or the new Vaping flavours, which are just as addictive?
WHY do we choose a holiday location where we know that the authorities turn a blind eye to Drugs?
WHY do some of us avoid group holidays as we have an Eating Disorder and want to be sure no one ever finds out?
WHY is Truth not on our radar when it comes to telling the world about our holiday and what we got up to?
WHY do we feel leading a Double Life on holiday is ok as no one knows us, so it does not matter?
WHY do our Vices and Secrets come out to play even more on holiday?
WHY are all our days on holiday turning into Crazy Days?
WHY are we always Overdoing it just before we go away on holiday?
What happens after a bombastic so-called holiday, that makes us just want to Give Up on Life?
What happens on holiday that makes us avoid looking in the Mirror at our self when we get back?
What if we made a choice to live a See Through Life – how would we be on holiday?
What is it that we don’t like about our obsession of taking selfies and uploading them instantly when it comes to holidays?
What is it about Social Media that takes over our moral compass when it comes to holiday snaps of us in crazy mode?
What would our Heart truly want for us when it comes to the subject of holidays?
What would our Kidneys communicate to us on holiday, if they could really speak to us?
What would our Blood Pressure be telling us when we are on holiday about what we are choosing?
What would happen to us if we knew how to Plug in and Connect to the field – which is way beyond this earth realm?
Would we then learn to Do Less and Be More?
Would we know how to Stop – Just STOP when our body tells us?
Would we know how to Close Our Eyes and feel our internal world?
Would we know about the value of our natural Sleep rhythm?
Would we innately know how to Be Gentle with everyone and everything?
Would that support us to simply GET ON WITH IT?
There is so much more that could be said but for the purposes of this blog – enough has been expressed.
Reading what this tablet of Truth has presented thus far can leave us in no doubt that the vacation industry is booming simply because we are demanding more and more of what we want.
We are a race of beings that need to escape and forget the worries of daily life and we hope a vacation will end our misery and agony that we wake up with every day.
We all have different forms of self-medication and most of us use holidays as a medicine to make life better.
But what if our real everyday life is to be the medicine?
In other words, we make every single day of our life so great and deal with our stuff, that we no longer have a need to take the rest, respite and break away from life because we feel content and have joy inside of us, which remains constant.
What if there is Another Way?
What if there is a Purpose to Life?
What if life in the future for all of us will not be about distractions and escaping but simply about evolution?
