5 Trips That Will Change Your Life

Forbes.com put out a list of 5 Trips That Will Change Your Life.
The list is pretty interesting and the trips recommended are very expensive.

Here is the list:

  1. Raft The Grand Canyon
  2. Easter Island, Chile
  3. Tiger Safari by Chartered Plane
  4. Explore Antarctica
  5. Trekking in Bhutan

I had an amazing time when I visited Easter Island. It is not a cheap place but it can be done in a somewhat affordable way. I also got to visit the Grand Canyon but did not go rafting. However I did have an amazing time viewing it from the Sky Walk.

I would love to visit Antarctica, it’s actually the only continent that I have not visited! However I get really bad sea sickness so I am not sure when that visit will happen. I am hoping that at some point I can get on a flight to Antarctica to avoid the long travel by boat in the rough waters.

I’d also love to go on a tiger safari in India! I’ve been to Africa two times and had amazing times on safaris but have not had the opportunity to see a tiger in the wild yet.
