The Most Incredible Things You Could Do This Year

By: Amos Brock

Life is a very precious thing and unless you're James Bond you'll only get one go round. This makes it imperative that you live life to the fullest and that you try to experience as many different things while you're still around to do so, and by doing that you'll be able to ensure that you don't find yourself having regrets when you're in your twilight years.

If you think back to last year and can't pick out any particular experiences that you found amazing, then this means you probably aren't trying hard enough to explore everything that's out there but it's not too late. You don't need to be Richard Branson to do things that will stay in your memory forever, or that you can tell your friends down the pub, there are plenty of opportunities right on your doorstep that are highly affordable and easy. Here we will look at what some of those are...

Bungee Jumping

A sky dive is an amazing experience of course but one that's a little pricey for most of us to do on a whim. Going bungee jumping on the other hand is surprisingly affordable and it doesn't cost too much to try. Have a go and you'll get more adrenaline in a few minutes than you likely will have all year.

Hot Air Balloon

Bungee jumps are incredible experiences that bring a little action and excitement into your life, but they aren't for everyone due to the extreme speeds and sudden jolt at the end. A hot air balloon then offers a more sedate experience that will allow you to still experience flight and see some incredible things. It's exciting and scary (in the good way) but at the same time romantic and peaceful.

Run a Marathon

If you think you're too old or not fit enough to run a marathon, then try bringing up some news stories of people who have completed marathons on crutches or in their 80s. There's no reason you can't have a go at this incredible challenge, and the sense of achievement you'll feel after you've done so will stay with you forever. And you never know, you might just find a new hobby in the meantime.

Climb a Mountain

If ever there was a metaphor for exploration and achievement , climbing a mountain is it. This way you can enjoy some spectacular views that will remind you how small we all are but at the same time you'll be conquering something through your force of will. And climbing a mountain can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be, you just need to find the right one and the right route.


Another way to get some extreme excitement. Wakeboarding is a great option for beginners because you get dragged along and because there's only the water to hit if things go wrong. If you are going on holiday, then almost any hotel by the sea will offer this as a fun and affordable activity.
