Adventure vacations are an incredible way to travel for those with an
adventurous spirit or even for those who are just looking to try something
different on their vacation. There are many travel companies today who
are organizing vacations that include activities such as white water
rafting, extreme skiing, mountain biking and backpacking. These adventure
vacations give the traveler the opportunity to explore a new location
in a completely new way. For example you may have traveled to Belize
a number of times, but it is bound to seem completely different when
you view the country side from a white water raft that is hurling down
one of the many river systems. These types of vacations can be very
strenuous and in all honesty they may not be right for everyone. You
will have to evaluate yourself carefully before embarking on an adventure
vacation. Hopefully, this article will serve to help you decide whether
or not adventure travel is for you.
One tip for deciding whether or not to embark on a particular adventure
travel vacation is to carefully review the itinerary and be honest with
yourself about whether or not you can complete each day’s activities.
Even if the trip is still a few months away, evaluate your present overall
health in making the decision. You may have expectations of getting
into shape for a trip that is a few months away but there is no guarantee
that this will happen. For this reason, it is wise to use your current
condition as a benchmark for whether or not you believe that you will
be able to keep up with group and complete this trip. For example, if
a trip calls for over 50 miles of biking daily and you have never ridden
more than 10-15 miles, it might not be a good idea to go on this trip.
Asking the trip organizers about the overall skill level required is
another way to evaluate whether or not you are capable of completing
the trip. They will have a good idea of whether expert, moderate or
beginner skills are required for the trip. If you are a beginner climber
you would be wise to find a climbing trip that matches your level instead
of trying to keep up on a trip that is geared for experts. While it
is generally a good idea to strive to do your best and improve your
skills you are more likely to enjoy a vacation if you already have the
required skills necessary to complete the trip.
You should also consider your willingness to try new things when deciding
whether or not to take an adventure vacation. Some adventure trips are
not necessarily physically demanding but they may involve activities
such as sky diving or bungee jumping that are an adrenaline rush. If
you are the type of person who is usually scared to try these types
of activities than you will not likely enjoy this type of trip.
Adventure travel is becoming increasingly popular but this type of travel
is not right for everyone. If you are not physically fit, you shouldn’t
sign up for an adventure vacation that involves strenuous activity.
Also, if you are not a daring person, vacations that push you to take
risks probably aren’t a good idea either.

I get free airline tickets & travel on a shoestring
Cheapest fares are always found online.
Wrong. Many of the wholesale airline contracts are prohibited
from being marketed on a website. If you're only searching Expedia,
Orbitz, Travelocity and the like, you're not seeing all the
really discounted fares that are available.
Buying direct from the airlines is good.
Wrong again. You just eliminated the possibility of buying a
consolidator airfare, which is almost always cheaper than anything
the airlines offer, and, the cheapest airfare are sold
only by travel agencies.
The airlines sell off unsold seats cheap at the last minute.
This myth can cost you big time or the cancellation of your
plans if you're not willing to pay the exorbitant price the
airlines want to extort from you. Believing this myth proves
you have no clue about the airlines' distribution system.
