• Life-changing experiences around the world

    2010-12-03

    While vacations to tropical destinations are nice, sunning yourself on the beach isn't exactly a life-changing experience. Travel + Leisure has put together a list of exciting activities around the world for those who are looking for thrills and adventure on their next expedition.

    Travelers who want to brave the extreme cold will certainly be rewarded with amazing experiences when they embark on an escorted tour of Antarctica. One operator offers fascinating excursions to see emperor penguins and a 200-foot icefall, as well as kite-skiing across the horizon.

    On the opposite end of the climate spectrum, head to Kenya and visit the Leakey family, who famously studies the origins of civilization. Explore their research station, home to fossils that are millions of years old, and join in on an archaeological dig for the past.

    While these destinations offer unique experiences, tourists don't have to fly to exotic locales to find thrills. Many travelers have been to France, but returning vacationers may want to explore the country in a new way by bicycling through Loire Valley.

    Adventurers are encouraged to discover the world and have the time of their lives, but while spending time abroad, it is always a good idea to purchase travel insurance in the event of a medical emergency.
