There’s something totally liberating about being away from your home soil! People always say “live in the moment”, “enjoy each day like it’s your last”… but realistically who actually does that around their studies or 9-5 routine?! When you’re traveling these clichés suddenly make sense and become a way of life, rather than overused phrases that everyone aspires to do but somehow can’t manage.

Check out 4 of the best extreme travel adventures in the world!

Jeffrey’s Bay – South Africa

Surfing and traveling go hand in hand… If you’ve been out roaming the earth and ended up in a beach town then you will have probably given surfing a go. It isn’t scary, like some of the other experiences but I can see why it might be.

The oceans are often so big and murky looking from the shore and even from the board you can get moments of ‘I wonder which creatures are looking up at me, thinking hmm tasty’. Ok, I’m talking sharks again.

Surfing in South Africa’s Jeffrey’s Bay (made famous by cult surf film Endless Summer) is an unforgettable experience and incredible extreme travel, but you are thrashing around like a cute seal in the shark’s domain.

Bike Death Road – Bolivia

All I’m going to say is that if you do decide to go for it and mountain-bike La Paz’s infamous Death Road, do not Google or YouTube it in advance! Go in completely ignorant to what lies ahead and enjoy the terrifying yet exhilarating journey.

If you’re not as fit as a fiddle, no worries as it’s nearly all downhill. Maybe practice squeezing a tennis ball, over and over in advance – because those brakes will get a hammering and your arms will become locked on for the 4-5 hour white-knuckle ride.

Water Rappelling – Costa Rica

Some say repelling and some say abseiling… it’s both the same thing and involves dangling, or majestically bouncing down a rock face. Water-rappelling is nearly identical but you bounce Spiderman style down waterfalls. If you watched Bear Grylls putting celebs through their paces on Celebrity Survivor then you’ll have seen Costa Rica’s finest water-rappelling sites.

Come to Costa Rica and experience this extreme travel!

Skydive – Australia

Sky-diving isn’t exclusive to any part of the world, but Australia has some awesome spots! The above jump happened in Wollongong (close to Sydney) but we would also recommend the Mission beach skydive (near Cairns) freefalling 15000ft with views of the Great Barrier Reef!

If you manage to keep your eyes open and aren’t too busy swearing you get to check out amazing views from a bird’s eye view – what could be more magical than that?! You could even record your skydive and play it to your parents to pretend they’re watching it live on video chat!
