5 Adventure Vacations You Need to Take in Your Lifetime

The world is too beautiful and life is too precious to not take one of these life-changing trips.
Modern Times May 4, 2019
From the Seven Wonders of the World to your own backyard, the planet is full of places you have to visit at least once in your lifetime.

While we know everyone can’t afford to check every dream vacation destination off of their bucket list, we encourage you to take one of these adventure vacations at some point.

A Solo Trip to Somewhere New

We know what you're thinking: how is this a dream destination? First of all, you can take this trip anywhere you want in the world.

Secondly, we encourage you to venture to a place you've never been to before. This journey will offer independence, mindfulness, and the freedom to do whatever you wish.

Seven Wonders of the World

While different lists of the Seven Wonders of the World have been compiled, one thing remains true about each: the world's most spectacular natural and manmade wonders are on full display.

This is the type of trip that changes the way you think about the world, even if you're only able to see one of the wonders.

Explore the Water

The ocean remains one of the most mystifying places on our planet.

While we aren't saying you need to explore the most unknown waters of the world (but how cool would that be?), we do think you should experience what makes up about 70 percent of Earth's surface, whether it be scuba diving deep down or paddleboarding on the surface.

Backpack in Europe

Backpacking through Europe is one of those scenarios that everyone dreams about. Trains make it easy to get around the continent, and many countries are relatively close to one another.

All of the different cultures and experiences you take in will give you a wider perspective about the world.

Get to Know Your Backyard

It's easy to be envious about a place halfway across the world, but exploring your current city can offer just as much, if not more. You’d be amazed at what you can find when you start looking.

For example, Michigan explorers can take the LAN150 Challenge and mark things off their bucket list and still get back home early.
The best thing about adventures is that they can be anywhere in the world. We all dream of different places, even if the once-in-a-lifetime trip is exploring surrounding areas and getting to know more about your city's history.

No matter where you go, travel is important. It gets you out of your comfort zone and helps put things into perspective.
