We spend most of our lives in office cubicles daydreaming about travelling, road trips, adventure sports and hitchhiking we’ll do once we get time. But that time never comes. Travelling is something which we all want to do but will keep procrastinating until that one day, we decide to ditch our routine, pack the bags and just go for it.
Once we decide to set out, we’ll pick a destination, make itinerary, and book hotels and flights accordingly. But what if we tell you, that’s an old school way of travelling? Travellers these days do not go after destinations, they go after experiences. Instead of picking destinations, they pick experiences. And when we talk about experiences, only Scuba Diving and Skydiving come to our mind. But what if we tell you, you can take much more exciting experiences?
We curated a list of 10 such unforgettable experience one must take during their lifetime, in association with Exotic Alley, a company which provides experiential travelling. Take a look.
