One of our wishlist experiences is to see lava in its purest form.
This is a wishlist experience we have traveled long and far to witness.
We have traveled to some of the most volcanic areas of the earth including Hawaii, Iceland and Central America and have never seen any. Hawaii’s big island had been witnessing a continuous eruption for months, we arrived exactly when it finished. Central America is littered with wild volcanos… but not a glimmer… Typical! … More New Wanderlust Experience

I never was a fan of the water during my youth, we were never sure if it was just an irrational fear or something else. What I have never been able to do is open my eyes underwater . I was a late bloomer regarding swimming, but am now perfectly happy in the water. … More Dive right in!

As many of my friends will attest to, and as previously blogged, I have a bit of an adventurous streak.

I recently posted my first review on ‘A Wandering Memory’ instead of my traditional stories. So as I am in the mood for change, I have decided that I should now concentrate on a particular experience.

Yes I am very partial to an extreme sport, having dived, skied, snowboarded, skydived and even bungee jumped – so what next? … More Real Extreme Sports
