Top 5 of the must do before you die experiences

We’ve all dreamed about living our lives to the fullest and no matter what that may mean for you, there are just some experiences that remain extraordinary. While you may have a bucket list of your own, consider adding these to it because if articles, testimonials and pictures are anything to go on, you do not want to miss having these ‘must do before you die’ experiences. Here are the top 5 must do experiences, in no particular order.

 

  • See the Northern Lights

Otherwise known as Aurora Borealis or the Polar lights, it doesn’t matter what you call them because once you witness the magic our world truly holds you will be speechless anyway. Whether or not you understand how these wonders of the sky work, the adventure stands static. Green, blue and purple lights dance across the sky in waves of ever-changing hues. Sleep in a glass igloo, retreat to a luxurious resort or camp beneath the stars in places like Finland, Norway, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Sweden and Alaska, depending on what time of year you decide to visit. Cameras might not do as much justice to these awesome sights, but the experience will live on in your memory in high definition.

 

  • Go on an African Game Drive
  • The African sky seems to contain the essence of life within its breath-taking sunsets, stunning sunrises, and luminous star-studded night skies. There is no better place to set the scene of witnessing wild animals in their natural habitat and having a drink or two to the sweet songs of the African Grey Hornbill and majestic hippo. If you love getting in touch with nature and if getting away from city life sounds like the perfect escape, then going on a game drive is the experience for you. There are many lodges and guest houses that offer group and private game drives while you’re booked in. These drives usually take place in the early morning and late afternoon. Aside from the aesthetic aspect, there is much to learn and take in from these drives in the bush and you are likely to return with a new appreciation for the wonderful wildlife and unique landscapes. 
    • Go Hiking in Cape Town

    There is a reason they call Cape Town the ‘Mother City’ of South Africa. Its beauty and inexplicable energetic vibe come together to form a city for every type of person. Hiking is an incredible experience on its own, but when accompanied by ocean views and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it becomes an unforgettable one. Hikes around Cape Town can range from two hours to eight hours, or even two or more days if you’re up for the challenge. Not only are you able to soak up the forest, sea-scape and mighty mountains, but you might even get to see whales and African penguins, depending on which trails you take, and there is a hike for all budgets too. The Whale trail and the Otter trail are two of the most popular hikes in Cape Town and everyone who has been interviewed about doing these hikes has said that it was challenging but well worth the experience. Many people even go back to do it again! If anything is worth going back for seconds, it is worth doing the first time.

     

    • Get a Tattoo

    This experience can range from 45 minutes to over three days. It could be a one-time thing or an ongoing artwork. This is one of the many reasons why this experience is so special- it’s a completely personal experience and almost everyone who experiences it once wants to experience it one more time. Another unique feature of getting a tattoo is the pain that accompanies it. But just like many artworks, pain is part of the experience- it makes it that much more worth it. Getting a tattoo represents strength, resilience, patience, and a love for art in the person who gets one. Above all else, who wouldn’t want a beautiful piece of artisanal design imbedded in their skin for life? It becomes part of who you are in terms of how people recognize you, and if your tattoo has a special meaning to it, it then becomes a part of who you are as a person too, The smell of a strictly sanitized workspace, buzzing sound of the needle, enthusiastic chatter between you and your friendly artist and the magnificent onset of masochistic hedonism. (That’s a joke.) The best part about this experience is that the result of it will stay with you for life!

     

    • Go on a Road Trip
    • There are tons of films and books that include a famous road trip scene and it always seems to be the best part of the adventure. Well, that’s because it is. There’s a reason as to why there is a saying that ‘life is about the journey, not the destination’, because while your destination may be an exciting element to the trip, the point of a road trip is to become overwhelmed by your excitement and channel that energy into making the most of your drive there. Music and bad karaoke, snacks, feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face, energy drinks, good conversation and candid scenery, the opportunities to enjoy the present moment and make memories are endless.
