Even doing these things will probably burn a hole in your pocket, it will all be worth it because the end will be near. Remember Jack Nicholson in the ‘The Bucket List’? Well, you get the idea. Here are some things which you must definitely do before you die.
Skydiving involves jumping out of an airplane and falling at a speed of over 120 MPH towards the Earth. The adrenaline rush you will experience will be beyond exhilarating and you will be glad you went ahead with it!
2. Dock With The International Space Station
Even though this will cost you about 20 million dollars, you will not regret spending that kind of money. You will be sitting in the space station and see the Earth in a completely different light. The planet will look like a gorgeous blue marble and the weightlessness will be exciting too!
3. Edge of Space Supersonic Jet Ride
In case you don’t feel like dishing out the 20 million dollars, instead, you can consider traveling till the edge of space in a Jet Fighter. You will be about 60,000 feet above ground level and moving at a speed that will blow your mind. If you want to get an idea of how high that is, imagine stacking about 40 empire state buildings on top of each other and standing on that structure.
4. Take a Ride on a Russian MIG-Fighter Jet
This adventure ride will make you travel faster than the speed of sound. You may also get a glimpse of Alaska while you’re at it! The jet will travel at a speed of about 1800 MPH.
5. Dive to the Titanic On-Board a Submarine
Everybody is familiar with the ‘unsinkable ship’-Titanic and the attached tragedy. If you do not mind parting with about 35,000 dollars, you can travel till the bottom of the ocean and see the ruins of this magnificent ship.
6. Climb the Great Pyramid of Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Egypt is part of the Seven Wonders of the World and was built using about 2.6 million blocks. It is 482 feet tall and each block weighs at least 70 tons. Can you imagining standing on this massive structure and viewing the gorgeous landscape in all its glory?
7. Visit the Great Wall of China
The Great Wall of China was built over 2000 years back and stretches across 4000 miles. It is beautiful and should definitely be a part of your ‘things to do’ list before you die!
8. Backpack across the world
Backpacking across the world will make you see the world differently and change you as a person. Travel light and with a few friends and visit all those parts of the world you have only seen in pictures. Live like a local and live cheap- that is the only way you will be able to have a good time!
9. Scuba Diving
Many people are afraid of scuba diving because they feel that their oxygen tanks will let them down when they are on the ocean’s bed. Even if you are among these people, you should jump straight into the ocean with an oxygen tank and swim with the colorful fish and alongside other beautiful creatures.
10. African Safari
If you know you are about to die or if you have had a bucket list prepared since you were a teenager, you should book an African safari. You will be able to see the most magnificent beasts Mother Nature has to offer roaming around freely in the wild. You can see lions sleeping under trees, hippos walking around in holes filled with mud and elephants bathing themselves in the water.
