Adventure Travelling: A Few Insider Tricks For Doing It Right

Everyone wants adventure and to see the world, so why not put them together? Of course, not all of us know how to do that correctly. Don’t worry; we are here to tell you what you need to do.

Plan Right

The first thing you need to do before going on any trip is to plan. Now you can’t plan poorly, or you will suffer in the end. You need to plan especially well when going on an adventure travel trip.

Be sure to pack light and keep yourself from carrying too much at once throughout your trip. It is best to be harsh on yourself when packing your clothes. You don’t want any unnecessary baggage.

Don’t forget to leave space for souvenirs! We don’t always plan on buying things when on an adventurous trip. However, it is not all that far fetched to think you may discover certain things we wish to take back with us.

Pack the correct gear. You don’t want to be stuck at the bottom of a mountain without the right equipment to climb it, do you?

Pick a New Place

If you want to go on an adventure, then it is best to go somewhere new and not where you’ve been before. You should also know how to pick the right adventure for you. Some places won’t pose the challenges that others might.

You should know what kind of adventure you want and where you want to go. After deciding on this new unexplored trip, you should do your research. However, you should always be cautious when going online for long periods and when in a foreign country.

The best way to be safe is to download a VPN. These tools can be downloaded on almost every device, and use IP address masking and military-grade encryption for protecting your data and identity.

Don’t just settle for any VPN, though. Make sure it doesn’t keep logs of any kind, and one such provider is PureVPN. The Hong Kong-based VPN server has a No-Log Certification from renowned Information Systems Auditor, Altius IT.

Interact With Those Around You

Just because you are new to a place, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t talk to other people. Chat with the people selling things at the markets as you pass through them. If you enjoy cooking, join a cooking class.

Do not be scared to share your interests with the native people. Of course, you should remember to be respectful of their culture. Find places like bars to hang out with the locals.

If you go to a place like India or China, try wearing their traditional clothing. Be a part of their festivals, eat their foods, and completely immerse yourself into their culture.

To Sum It All Up

Don’t be afraid to try new things! Be brave and optimistic. Don’t forget that people can be kind too and that if you respect them, you will be rewarded. Be confident when taking an adventure travel trip.

Create many wonderful memories and share those memories with your friends and family. By sharing your stories with others, you may inspire them to experience adventure traveling too.

Matthias Giraud. Erik Pütsep Photo. Matthias Giraud is going 50 miles an hour when he slams into the rock spire that juts out from the Pointe d’Areu; a peak just northwest of Mont Blanc. An impact at such speed, even within the protection of modern cars, is invariably catastrophic and likely fatal. Hanging from his parachute like a puppet attached to strings, Giraud has no such protection. He stops moving the instant his body makes contact with the rock, and free fall is interrupted

Alex Honnold Got His Lead Card Pulled Back in the Day

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Alex Honnold has never been one to follow the rules. Honnold rolls to the beat of his own drum, and he’s been doing it since long before he was a climbing superstar. His original climbing gym, Pipeworks in Sacramento, just shared this gem from the past. Apparently Honnold was caught skipping clips on the gym’s main roof. Nicky, a staff member from Pipeworks, wasn’t amused and pulled his lead card. Thankfully, the experience didn’t deter Honnold from
