Traveling around the world is in itself a dream come true for many of us, who doesn’t wish to leave everything they are doing right now and just pack up their bags and travel. Traveling has a feeling like no other. Seeing new places, meeting new people, trying out new foods and experiencing different cultures, all these have a certain lure about them. It is human nature to lead a safe and settled life, but there is that tiny wild nature within us, that provokes us to travel and discover new things.
In view of this, we have tried to compile a list of activities that one should try out while traveling in this vast world of ours.
See the northern lights at Norway
A true pallet of dazzling lights, it is a sight for sore eyes. A mysterious myriad of colors, it is one of the most amazing sights in the natural world. It gives us a peek into the vast universe and humbles us by making us realize how tiny we are. It is an elusive and ethereal experience something so magical, that you will never forget it. The shifting colors across the dark night background will surely leave you feeling dazed and awestruck.
Visit a volcano at Krakatoa, Indonesia
I would suggest you to take a stroll down the wild side and explore the exciting possibilities offered by one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. It is the world’s largest archipelago stretching across over 17,000 islands. Indonesia’s bio-cultural diversity is so enormous that every year new species are discovered and previously unknown customs are uncovered. Though the volcano is not completely dormant, it is considered pretty safe unless you have angered any of the ancient gods!!! 😛 But jokes aside it is a beautiful place, and you can notice lava melting down the sides when you sail around the volcano.
Go whale watching at the Hervey Bay Australia
It is a silencing moment when you watch these humongous mammals make soaring dives and leaps. The thunderous noise and the spray of sea water, the smell of the cool breeze, all of this makes it worth your trip. As these giant beasts plow the sea crests, it is truly a sight to behold. And there is really no better joy than in watching these magnificent beasts thrash about in water creating their own mini-tsunamis!!!
Get into a tomato fight in Bunol, Spain
