If you are like most Americans, you having difficulty saving money while prices are rapidly increasing; things like college tuition, food and fuel. So, when it comes to traveling you are looking to shave off costs and find ways to travel on a budget, and well, no one can blame you for that. What you may not be aware of or have not considered is that in the travel business; everything from airlines and rent-a-cars to tourist destinations and hotels are trying to find better ways to accommodate the budget traveler.For instance, many airlines have had their fuel prices boosted to record costs and many family budget and business travel hotels are making changes in management and in their operations. Recently, Choice Hotels named a new COO and President; Stephen P. Joyce, 48. Additionally they named a new Executive VP of Global Branding. Why, because they know that they must hold their American clientele and find ways to cut costs, while still attracting their overseas travelers who are paying in high valued currencies.There are many ways to cut costs in traveling and staying on a budget and hotels, rental car agencies and airlines are working very hard to compete for fewer travelers with fewer dollars, while still retaining a profit. Easier said than done, especially when jet fuel has almost tripled in cost since 2000 and recently the number of families traveling on vacation is being cut by a good 35% this summer, all due to cash strapped consumers, credit crisis and outrageous fuel costs. Airline Industry analysts are predicting one or maybe two major airlines filing bankruptcy in 2009 and some hotel chains have pulled back construction of new hotels in many locations.
If you are in the mood for something a little more wild and daring, why not consider planning an adventurous vacation? Travel to exotic locations worldwide, and pursue the trip of your dreams. Take a ride on an elephant in Thailand, or travel on horseback to gorgeous remote mountain destinations. Of course, this type of vacation is not for everyone, so if you’re looking for rest and relaxation, adventure travel probably is not for you.
Not to say you will not get any rest on your trip, but the accommodations will be simple and less than you would experience at a five star resort. It is definitely a trade off to experience this type of outdoor recreation, which is usually far removed from popular thoroughfares. Be one with nature and do something different to get away.
Adventure travel is very exciting, and there are risks associated especially when travel to overseas destinations is involved. Travel sites are abundant online which specialize in world class adventure travel experiences at affordable prices. Adventure seekers can choose from over two thousand vacations including hiking and biking trips, cultural tours, African safaris, Antarctic expedition cruises, Everest base camp treks, a Nile cruise, Mongolian wilderness adventure, or hiking Machu Picchu. The possibilities are endless because there is a huge selection of active and adventurous vacations worldwide.
Comprehensive guides to adventure travel can be found all over the internet, just type in adventure travel guide into a search engine and away you go. These online adventure travel guides are a great resource for adventure travel and outdoor recreation with information on top destinations, national parks, outdoor gear, hiking, and kayaking. For family adventures, you just add family to your adventure travel search query and you will find many travel sites featuring dude ranches, whitewater rafting, houseboat rentals, bicycle tours, horse pack trips and trail rides, dog sledding vacations, wildlife viewing tours, and wagon trains, just to name a few popular adventures.
Security and safety are a high priority, and associated risks should be considered before booking your vacation. Most adventure travel sites recommend that travelers visit the United States Department of State website at http://www.travel.state.gov for the latest travel advice; be sure to heed any travel warnings that have been issued for various destinations and take care throughout your trip. Be prepared and get the recommended vaccinations in plenty of time before your trip, and stock up on any medications you may need on your journey. Travel light but don’t forget something that can make or break your experience. And last but not least, enjoy your vacation and you’ll far exceed your adventure travel expectations.
If you are planning on taking a hotel holiday in Auckland, New Zealand, have you thought about booking your accommodation at the ‘last minute?’ Sounds scary but doing this can save you money for the rest of your trip. Usually these rates apply for a period of up to 28 days, so you can have peace of mind that this doesn’t mean you have to book the day before you leave.
So How Do They Work?
Many Auckland hotel accommodations have a number of rooms which don’t get booked, these are made available on last minute accommodation websites at a cheaper price, which can be discounted by up to 60% of the standard rate.
There are a range of websites promoting these offers so it pays to check each for exactly what is on offer and what you are paying for. Some will provide ‘extras’ like free breakfasts, champagne on arrival or a free shuttle service, while others are simply providing just the hotel suite accommodation so it’s a good idea to check what you are required to pay for before you book.
We all know that feeling when you are about to book an accommodation and you start to wonder what you are really going to get for the price you pay. Some ‘last minute’ websites allow you to see all of the available rates on one page which allows you to compare more than one accommodation (& their services) at a time – thus making your decision a little easier!
So What Can You Do With the Money You Save On Auckland Hotel Accommodation?
With Auckland being the largest city in New Zealand, there is plenty to see and do – and not just in the city either! Whether you are travelling with friends, your partner or the whole family you will be sure to find something to keep you entertained. Here’s some ideas to get you started:
o Take a trip to Waiheke Island and enjoy some wine tasting tours!
o Enjoy shopping in the city and then have a meal in Auckland’s inner city waterfront development – the Viaduct
o Take a boat trip in the Hauraki Gulf and see pods of dolphins & whales
o Visit Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World & Antarctic Encounter
o Sail the Waitamata Harbour
o Bungy Jump off the Sky Tower – 192 metres straight down!!
o Take a trip to Waiwera Thermal Resort mineral pools
Of course if you plan to have a quiet trip away there is nothing wrong with staying indoors and enjoying the accommodation you have booked!
By now you should be inspired enough to go browse on the Internet for last minute hotel accommodation rates currently available in Auckland. Who knows you might even save enough money you can leave tomorrow
Last year turned out to be the worst in history for pet food recalls. While there is no way to be 100% certain that a pet food is not tainted or will be recalled, there are some red flags to look for when selecting your dog’s or cat’s food. Avoiding these common pet food ingredients can greatly improve your odds in purchasing a healthy, safe pet food.Judging the safety or the nutritional value of a pet food starts by ignoring the advertising, the price of the pet food, and ignoring the front of the bag. The real signs to the safety of a dog food or cat food lie on the back or side of the bag or can in the ‘Ingredient Listing’. Regardless of what marketing terms (‘choice’, ‘premium’, and so on) are on the front of the bag or can of pet food, a pet owner cannot determine the quality or how safe the food is unless they look at the ingredients. With dry foods there can be 90 different ingredients (or more), with canned foods there can be 50 or more different ingredients. But don’t panic…you don’t have to understand hundreds of different pet food ingredients! You just need to be aware of a few key ingredients…pet food ingredients that you do NOT want to see in a dog food or cat food (or treats).’Wheat Gluten’, ‘Corn Gluten’, or ‘Rice Gluten’. These three ingredients were the bad boy pet food ingredients of 2007. Tainted glutens were found to be the cause of thousands of dogs and cats becoming ill and dying. It is not that glutens themselves are toxic to pets – these ingredients have been used in pet foods for years. The problem was the source or manufacturer of the glutens – imported from countries with far less quality standards than in the US. (The majority of glutens used in the US pet foods are from imported sources.) These imported glutens contained added chemicals that caused crystals to form in the kidneys of dogs and cats.Not only is it important to avoid dog foods and cat foods (and dog and cat treats) that contain glutens because of the possibility of dangerous added chemicals, it is important because they add no real quality nutrition to the food. Glutens are used as a thickener AND as a source of protein in pet food. Adult maintenance dog foods must provide a minimum of 18% protein, adult maintenance cat foods must provide a minimum of 26% protein. If the meat source of the pet food does not provide enough protein, glutens are often added to boost the protein level of the pet food. The best nutrition for your pet comes from a meat protein pet food not from a gluten protein. Avoid dog foods and cat foods (and treats) that contain ‘corn gluten’, ‘wheat gluten’, or ‘soy gluten’.'By Products’. By-products have never been the cause of a pet food recall, but they are definitely ingredients you want to avoid feeding your pet. To give you an understanding of by-products, I’d like to compare this pet food ingredient to pies – you know, the dessert! How many different types of pies you can think of? There are apple pies, cherry pies, chocolate pies, meringue pies, meat pies, mud pies, pie in math, cow pies (yuck!) – I think you get my point. Now imagine if you purchased yourself a prepared ravioli dinner at the grocery and you looked at the ingredients and you see ‘pie’ listed as the first ingredient in your dinner. Hmmm, pie in ravioli – what kind of pie? You wouldn’t know if it was apple pie or mud pie or even cow pie. All you would know is that your dinner contained ‘pie’. Considering ‘pie’ could be anything from apple pie to cow pie – my guess is that you wouldn’t be having ravioli for dinner. Same thing with by-products in pet food.AAFCO (American Association of Feed Control Officials – the organization responsible for all animal feed manufacturing rules and regulations) defines by-products as “meat by-products is the non-rendered, clean parts, other than meat, derived from slaughtered mammals. It includes, but is not limited to, lungs, spleen, kidneys, brain, livers, blood, bone, partially defatted low temperature fatty tissue, and stomachs and intestines freed of their contents. It does not include hair, horns, teeth, and hoofs. It shall be suitable for use in animal food. If it bears name descriptive of its kind, it must correspond thereto.”So, with respect to pet food – a by-product is a catch-all ingredient name. All left over meat materials from the human food industry are clumped into one ingredient name – by-product. There is NO certainty of what you are feeding – one batch of pet food might be more intestine by-products while the next batch of pet food might be more liver or bone by-products. There is NO way of knowing what is actually contained in the pet food ingredient by-product (the pet food manufacturers themselves couldn’t tell you exactly). Avoid dog foods and cat foods (and treats) that contain By-products of any kind…Chicken By-Products, Beef By-Products, Chicken By-Product Meal, Beef By-Product Meal, and so forth.’Meat Meal’, ‘Meat and Bone Meal’, or ‘Animal Digest’. These three ingredients are similar to by-products. AAFCO defines Meat and Bone Meal as “the rendered product from mammal tissues, including bone, exclusive of any added blood, hair, hoof, horn, hide trimmings, manure, stomach and rumen contents, except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably to good processing practices.” Again, a catch all ingredient name for the left-over parts of animals used for human food. No consistency to what is contained in these ingredients (all three of these pet food ingredient definitions are similar) – no way of knowing what is actually in your pet’s food. Avoid dog foods, cat foods, and dog and cat treats that contain ‘meat meal’, ‘meat and bone meal’, or ‘animal digest’.'Animal Fat’. In 2002 the FDA tested many different brands of dog food (cat food was not tested) for the presence of the drug pentobarbital. Many brands of dog food tested positive to contain the drug. Pentobarbital is the drug used to euthanize dogs, cats, cattle, and horses.How can the drug that is used to euthanize animals be found in pet food? The answer – euthanized animals are rendered (cooked) and the end ingredients are placed in pet food. It has long been rumored that euthanized dogs and cats (from animal shelters and veterinarian offices) is the major source of the pentobarbital in pet food. However no one has been able to prove or disprove this rumor to date. The FDA/CVM (Center for Veterinary Management) developed testing methods on two separate occasions to determine the species source of the drug. No results have ever been determined. The pet food manufacturers adamantly deny they use rendered dogs or cats – but NO clinical evidence has ever been released to confirm the pentobarbital is from euthanized cattle and horses in pet food as they claim.However, the one thing the FDA/CVM has determined through their testing is the pet food ingredient ‘animal fat’ is the most common ingredient to contain pentobarbital. In other words, if you are feeding a dog food or cat food (or treats) with the ingredient ‘animal fat’ in the ingredient listing – you are (more than likely) feeding your pet euthanized animals. Not every batch of pet food tested that contained the ingredient ‘animal fat’ has proved to contain pentobarbital – but why would any pet owner want to take the chance? Avoid dog foods, cat foods, and dog and cat treats that contain the ingredient ‘animal fat’.'BHA’, ‘BHT’, ‘TBHQ’, and ‘Ethoxyquin’. These pet food ingredients are chemical preservatives and you might have to look through the entire ingredient list to find them. It is worth the look because there is plenty of clinical evidence to associate all four of these chemical preservatives with cancer and tumors (simply do a Google search on any one of these chemicals). All four of these chemical preservatives are rarely used to preserve human food and if so, are used in quantities far less than what is allowed in pet food. Avoid any dog food, cat food, or dog and cat treat that contains ‘BHA’, ‘BHT’, ‘TBHQ’, and ‘Ethoxyquin’ on the label.’Corn’, ‘Wheat’, ‘Soy’. While there is no scientific evidence that proves these ingredients are dangerous to pets – they are potentially dangerous ingredients associated with recalls in the past (1995, 1999, and 2005). These grains are highly prone to a deadly mold (aflatoxin). It is suggested (by AAFCO) that all pet food manufacturers test grains for the mold, but as recalls of the past have proven – that doesn’t always happen. I do not think these ingredients are as risky as others mentioned above, but they are ingredients I avoid for my own pets.There is more to selecting a true healthy pet food for your dog or cat than avoiding the above mentioned ingredients. This is just a start – based on pet food history, AAFCO ingredient definitions, science and opinion of many pet food experts including myself. There are many quality pet foods available that do NOT use the above ingredients and that add health promoting ingredients to their foods and treats. Continue to learn as much as you can about what you are feeding your pet and ALWAYS read the labels!
While America’s food supply is the safest in the world, food poisoning is responsible for approximately 76 million illnesses in the United States each year. In fact, it is estimated that 60% or more of the raw poultry sold today probably has disease-causing bacteria. Anyone eating food contaminated by certain bacteria, parasites, or viruses can get food poisoning. Certain factors such as age and physical condition can make certain people more susceptible to food poisoning than others. Infants, pregnant women, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems are at greatest risk.For most people in good condition, food poisoning is usually neither long lasting nor life-threatening. However, to less healthy individuals it can become a serious health threat, accounting for approximately 5,000 deaths each year.The good news is that by taking simple precautionary steps while purchasing, handling, and preparing food you can prevent most cases of food poisoning in the home.What causes food poisoning? Food poisoning is most commonly caused by bacteria, parasites, or viruses that may be present in the food that you have eaten. You may have heard the names of many of these organisms. They include Escherichia coli (E coli), Campylobacter jejuni, Clostridium botulinum, Shigella, Salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus, Trichinella, and Hepatitis A virus, just to name a few. They can be present in a wide range of food including red meat, poultry, milk and other dairy products, eggs, unpasteurized vegetable juices and ciders, spices, chocolate, seafood, and even water.These organisms may be present on your food when it is bought or can get into the food, including cooked food, if the food comes into contact with raw meat juices on dirty utensils, cutting boards, or countertops used to prepare contaminated food. That’s why it is important not only to thoroughly cook your food, but to wash your hands, utensils, and countertops, before and after you handle raw foods.What are the symptoms? Symptoms will vary depending on the type and amount of contaminants eaten. Some people may get ill after ingesting only a small amount of harmful bacteria, while others may remain free of symptoms after eating larger quantities. The most common symptoms of food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain (cramps), fever, headache, and fatigue. Symptoms may develop as soon as 30 minutes after eating tainted food, but more commonly do not develop for several days or weeks. Symptoms of viral or parasitic food poisoning may not appear for several weeks, while some toxins in fish may take only a few minutes to cause symptoms.If you have botulism, you probably will not have a fever and the symptoms may include blurred vision, fatigue, dry mouth and throat.How food poisoning is diagnosed Food poisoning is often suspected when several people become ill after eating the same meal. To diagnose the cause of the illness, your doctor will need to know the symptoms and what was eaten right before the illness occurred. The doctor may need samples of the food, bowel movements, or vomit. These samples can be tested in a laboratory to determine if the food was contaminated and identify the organism causing the illness.How is it treated? If the symptoms are severe, the victim should see a doctor or get emergency care. Treatment depends on the severity and cause of the food poisoning. Generally, for mild cases of food poisoning, the doctor will recommend for you to rest, drink fluids to prevent dehydration due to vomiting or diarrhea, and to follow a specific diet. It usually only takes about 1 to 5 days to recover from food poisoning.If you have botulism, your doctor will prescribe an antitoxin. Other types of food poisoning have no antidote. Antibiotics are usually not helpful in treating food poisoning. Medicine to stop vomiting and stomach cramping may be given.Prevention is the best approach to avoid food poisoning Most cases of food poisoning can be prevented. Below is a list of a few simple Do’s and Don’ts to help you avoid food-borne illness in the home.● Do wash your hands, utensils, cutting boards, and countertops between different foods● Do hrefrigerate or freeze perishables right away (Refrigerator temperature should be 41˚ F and freezer 0˚F)● Do thoroughly cook foods. Cook beef, lamb, and pork to an internal temperature of 160˚F; whole poultry and thighs to 180˚F; poultry breasts to 170˚F, ground chicken or turkey to 165˚F● Do hrefrigerate leftover foods as soon as possible; leftovers shouldn’t remain unrefrigerated longer than 2 hours.● While food shopping, do select frozen foods and perishables such as meat, poultry, and fish last- before checking out● Do use smooth cutting boards made of hard maple or plastic that are free of cracks and crevices● Do store raw meats in leak-proof containers or on the bottom of the hrefrigerator to prevent juices from dripping on other foods● Don’t allow uncooked meats, meat juices, or unwashed fruits and vegetables to come in contact with either cooked or washed foods● Don’t buy frozen seafood if the packages are open, torn, or crushed on the edges● Don’t buy food in cans that are bulging or dented, or in jars that are cracked● Don’t ever buy outdated food. Check the “use by” or “sell by” dates● Don’t buy unpasteurized milk or dairy products● Do not buy hrefrigerated or frozen products that are not displayed at the proper temperature● Do not let small children put foods away unsupervisedMore information about this important health subject can be obtained from the following sources: Gateway to Government Food Safety Information http://www.foodsafety.gov U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition [http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/wh-food.html] Food Safety and Inspection Service United States Department of Agriculture http://www.fsis.usda.gov/OA/pubs/consumerpubs.htmSupported as an educational service by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation.

Palm Springs, California boasts 138 trails with some of the best hiking in the entire state. Combine this with gorgeous weather for the better part of the year, and it’s clear that this desert jewel is a perfect getaway for those who appreciate nature and outdoor activities. Whether you love to hike, bike, rock climb, or you just want to enjoy clean fresh air, breath-taking mountain views, and bright blue skies, you’ll love Palm Springs!Looking for an exhilarating experience? Glide up to the top of Mt. San Jacinto on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, and get a bird’s eye view of the entire valley. Mt. San Jacinto State Park offers 54 miles of hiking trails located within a 14,000 acre pristine wilderness, one of the last in California. Hiking is popular throughout the summer, and in the winter there is fun in the snow. Visiting Mt. St. Jacinto State Park is always one of the most popular outdoor activities in Palm Springs.Centuries ago, the Agua Caliente Cahuilla Indians settled the Palm Springs area, and as early as 1890 this area has been described as a recreation oasis. Today it provides a unique hiking opportunity for those with an appreciation for the beauty of nature and outdoor activities – the Indian Canyons hiking trails. Unlike other trails in the area, most of the trails here follow running streams. This beautiful gem is comprised of the Palm, Murray, Andreas, Tahquitz, and Chino Canyons. Tahquitz Canyon, and three southern canyons are listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and Palm Canyon, is considered one of the world’s largest California Fan Palm oases.Without a doubt, the world-class golfing, dining, resorts, and spas, of Palm Springs have enchanted travelers from all over the world throughout these past several decades. Here in the Southern California area, there are 22 million people living within driving distance to Palm Springs, and a large number of them have enjoyed the convenience of being just a car trip away from paradise. Outdoor activities in this region are a big reason why. Many folks who come out to this little slice of heaven enjoy staying in hotels, but for added space and privacy they often make the choice to invest in their very own property and then rent it to others when they’re not using the home. This is precisely what we did, and now after many years of vacationing in this beautiful part of California we are full time residents.One of the maybe less publicized outdoor activities which we personally enjoy is gazing up at the desert night sky. The lack of bright lights here provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy a crystal-clear view of the sparkling stars. Sometimes we even take out the telescope to get a better view of the brilliant light show in the sky.If you are one of the countless people that have fallen in love with Palm Springs and the surrounding cities, and are interested in taking advantage of the incredible deals that are currently available in this housing market, contact M&M and we’d be happy to introduce you to what could potentially be your own slice of paradise in the beautiful outdoor playground of Palm Springs. If you need anymore information on outdoor activities, we have links below.
Nowadays, who hasn’t dreamed of finally booking that awesome dream vacation to far off, exotic lands once thought to be unattainable to the average person? Luxury vacations are becoming an increasingly available option for many more people than in the past. And corporate travel, which after 9/11 took a major hit, seems to be making a minor comeback. This is probably due to the desire of people for a bit of luxury travel, and luxury travel agencies seem willing to take on this additional task.Why fly on the cheap all the time? Face it; many of us are going to scramble for that coach-class seat for most of our lives. That’s just a fact of our economic existence, for the most part. Also, many of us – unless we’re benefitting from a bit of corporate travel on behalf of our employers – will never see the inside of a 5-star hotel. But, for just once in our lives, wouldn’t it be awesome to splurge a little and take that luxury vacation, or just engage in a bit of luxury travel?Planning it out will make it possible. The good news is, luxury travel or a luxury vacation can be very luxurious without having to break the bank or take out a second mortgage on the old family homestead. There are dozens of Internet travel sites, in fact, that can give you all the planning assistance you need to line up a vacation in some exotic locale for about the same amount of money you’d pay, in certain times of the year, for a more normal “regular” vacation. It’s all in how you plan it, and how you book your air and hotels.Prices can vary wildly. Given the nature of our global economy these days, it’s possible to see just how much an air/hotel or all-inclusive package to Monaco, for instance, can run. And it’s also possible to work with travel agencies or directly with hotels, limo services and transportation companies like airlines and railways for steeply discounted rates, so always keep in mind the power you have to do much of these things today.But sometimes, price may not be the key thing. There are some instances in which just turning over everything to the capable hands of a luxury travel agency, regardless of what it might cost, can be the way to go. And it’s a fact that there are some truly outstanding luxury travel agencies out there that can literally plan your trip from the time you wake up in your own bed to the time when the limo drops you back off at your home, after the trip or vacation is over.Pick your destination; pick your level of luxury. Even within luxury travel or luxury travel vacations, there are levels upon levels of luxury. There are hotels out there where it’s nothing to pay thousands of dollars a night to stay, and there are some equally-luxurious hotels where the prices are half or even a tenth of that. It all depends on what your definition of “luxury” is at any given time.Regardless of your reason for going – whether during corporate travel or just as a result of a desire to live rich for a few days – luxury travel and luxury travel vacations can be quite a memorable experience. If for just once in a lifetime you can do it, by all means try.
You often hear people talking about adventure travel and that makes you wonder as to what adventure travel actually is. It is something by which u can add adventure and fun to your life. So before going for an adventure travel, you must know what it is. Adventure travel doesn’t mean that you have to endanger your life for your trip to be called adventurous!
The term adventurous is a concept that is not defined physically when you talk about adventure travel. This concept is defined psychologically. Different people have different definitions of adventure. Earlier adventure travel meant going abroad or just traveling to different places. However, its definition has changed today. Adventure travel is when you experience an event rather than being a mere spectator in your travels. It is actually living in the present and experiencing the place and not just sight seeing.
Adventure is different for everyone. What may appear adventurous to you could be totally boring for someone. And that is reason that there are so many options available if you want to go for adventure travel. You can choose the one which suits you, and more importantly the one which excites you! White water rafting or kayaking can be fun for someone. On the other hand camping in an interesting place can de defined as adventurous by some people. Hot air balloon ride may sound boring to you but it can be the perfect adventure travel for some.
Adventure travel is when you get yourself involved in an enthralling experience. It includes boating, kayaking, hiking, sky diving, mountain climbing, scuba diving, sailing, bicycling and much more! You should not indulge yourself into any form of adventure travel in which you are not comfortable. The level of risk in your travel is defined by you just like term adventure is defined individually. Adventure travel is getting yourself engaged into a new experience but make sure that you are totally comfortable in what you are doing.
You can choose a tour if you wish to go for adventure travel. Such adventure travel tours are available for couples and families. But don’t worry in case you are single, adventure tours are also available for you. So you can make a plan for an adventure tour. You can choose a tour which suits you best. These tours usually have two groups of people. One group goes on sight seeing and visits their areas of interest, whereas the other group involves itself in adventurous activities. Of course the type of activity depends on the tour which you have selected.
It is a misconception that adventure travel is only for the younger people. You can indulge yourself into it irrespective of your age. Adventure travel is enjoyed by one and all. It’s not uncommon to see an old couple getting engaged in adventurous activities. Having worked hard throughout their life, they want o experience something new and enthralling. You can meet people from all quarters of life in adventure travel. Now, meeting different people from different backgrounds can itself be very adventurous!
You can choose an adventure travel which excites you. It can simply be going out of the country to some distant place or maybe engaging yourself in bunjee jumping. Whichever activity you choose, just make sure that you are comfortable in it, for there will be no fun and no adventure if you are not comfortable!
