I have been really lucky to get to have some amazing adventures in the last ten years, so here is my top ten list. My motto for life is "Make Memories" so here is some of by best adventure memories.
HIKING THE GRAND CANYON, UNITED STATES
For my college graduation, my mother and I went and hiked the Grand Canyon. We woke up early early early one morning, and hiked to the bottom and out in one day.
SEEING THE SUNRISE AT ANGKOR WATTS, CAMBODIA
This was an amazing experience. All I could imagine was this amazing building built so many years ago while thinking, they got to see the same everyday.
HORSEBACK RIDING ON BEACH IN MEXICO
This was a bucket list item. We got to run on the beach with them and everything. There is a place in Australia where you can swim with the horses, we will have to go try that soon.
HIKING A GLACIER IN NEW ZEALAND
This was a great trip. We woke up early, hopped on a helicopter, and spent the entire day hiking around the glacier. We even got to see a couple of avalanches.
GOING INSIDE THE VATICAN, THE VATICAN
I love a good dose of history. One of my degrees is history, and my Dad's degree is in history. I have been lucky to go to a lot of places over Europe that is full of history, but this was my favorite. There was just something surreal to walk into a place with so much history, and get to see the masterpieces that were painted in that exact location or moved in. I was also "lucky" enough to be in The Vatican when Pope John Paul died and when he was moved. The pomp and circumstance was amazing getting to see carried out. Unfortunately, my computer crashed and I have none of my pictures prior to 2010 that I didn't post of Facebook. I learned the hard way to back up your pictures.
COMPLETLY IMERSING IN CULTURE, HONDURAS, ITALY, CAMBODIA AND AUSTRALIA
I spent many summers in Honduras, went to University a semester in Italy, spent the night with a family in Cambodia, and now have lived in Australia for a year. Culture is an amazing thing to really get to experience first hand.
DIVING GREAT BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA
I have been blessed to dive in many places. I would not say The Great Barrier Reef was the prettiest place I have seen. It was just one of the ultimate bucket list places.
BEING ON TOP OF A MOUNTAIN, UNITED STATES
(too many to name)
I have gotten the opportunity to go to the top of many mountains. I have the same feeling every time. It is so amazing to be on the top, look around, and enjoy the peace.
PARASAILING OFF OF A CLIFF, SWITZERLAND
Yet another wonderful memory I do not have pictures (pre 2010). This picture is a picture of me skydiving instead. Parasailing off of a cliff was amazing though, we put the parasail up and just ran off the cliff hoping it would hold us. My guide was amazing, he even left me pull the cords most of the time. Not to mention the wonderful sights.
ANY MEMORIES WITH MY FAMILY
Traveling around the world and doing great adventures is great, but if I didn't get to do it with my family it would mean nothing. So any memory with my family makes the top list.
As you can see I am a bit of adventure junkie, I have had many other adventures as you can see in the pictures above. This list was actually hard for me to make. Check out Eat All Over The World for more adventures and pictures. What would make your best adventure list?
