A friend of mine went to school in Australia and he absolutely loved it there. He has since returned, but he brought back some great stories and cool adventures.

He traveled all over while he was there seeing some pretty amazing sites. A few of the things he enjoyed the most was the wildlife, zoos and beaches.

This guy is really into animals. He just loves them. He went to check out many of their zoos. He said his favorite was the Taronga zoo. In fact he says it might be his favorite zoo ever. He did meet a pretty girl there who he dated for a while, so maybe that is why. ;) He’d get his Taronga zoo discount ticket with his student ID and take his girlfriend there a lot. He told me if I ever go to Australia I have to check it out.

He would also tell me how much he loved the beaches. In fact he got into surfing there. It might have even been his girlfriend that taught him how to surf. I guess she was quite good. After surfing he would free dive on the reefs for hours.

Sounds like he had a pretty good time over there. He said it is a must see place at least once in your life.

I plan on going to Australia some day and I hope that day is soon. You should go too!

Adventure Traveling! Could it be the best way?

Adventure travel is a growing trend among travelers and vacationers and anybody who likes more activity on their trips. Adventure travel can be experienced almost anywhere, so if you don’t have the time or budget for a long trip you don’t have to despair. On the other hand, if you’re ready to take a long trip, that certainly opens up even more possibilities. In this article we’ll be offering some useful adventure travel tips that can help you plan your journey.

Zipline tours are the latest adventure travel trend, and they are now available in more and more places. This is a type of travel where you’re sort of gliding from one tree to the next on a cable, so you can see everything from above. This is a whole new way of exploring new places, and you’ll experience the world in an entirely different way.

You’re high in the air, but not so high (as in an airplane) that things look too small to see clearly. Although some people find this a little scary at first, it’s not that hard once you get accustomed to it. You can now find zipline tours in many different places, and they’re becoming more popular every year.

You can ride your bicycle around the block, or you can take a biking trip in many parts of the world and see the scenery up close. Depending on things like distance covered and how level the terrain is, a bike trip can be relatively easy or very challenging. There are bike trips in Europe, such as wine country in Provence and Tuscany; Asia also has a good number of such trips, whether you want to visit Vietnam, China or many other countries. There are also plenty of opportunities to travel by bike in North America, whether in the U.S or Canada. The great thing about bicycle tours is that you’re likely to find one just about anywhere you want to travel to.

If you really want to participate in the place you’re traveling to, try a volunteer vacation. During these “volun-tourism” trips, you aren’t just passing through a place, but actively helping the local people or environment. These trips may involve building structures, archeological digs or perhaps helping with an environmental issue. There’s always a great need for volunteers, so you shouldn’t have any problem finding a situation that corresponds to your interests. For a family with children, this can be a valuable way to teach kids about the world and new places. Adventure travel is now more popular than ever, and you can find many companies that operate trips of this sort. You can find adventure travel trips appropriate for singles, couples and whole families. It is crucial to know precisely what you’ll be doing on the trip and whether or not all of the attendees are prepared for it. We have discussed a few options for adventure travel and if you do your own research, you’ll see there are endless possibilities.
