Climbing the Franz Josef Glacier, our guide had to pick the ice as we went up due to fast it melts each day. The reflection from the sun literally made our vision messed up for several hours afterwards, but it was worth it. Backpacking through the North and South Islands of New Zealand, we stopped by hot springs, I ran by the sea, kayaked the Tasman Sea, along with jumping off the boat into the sea with no land in sight. One day we set up a tent in a huge vineyard (it was actually creepy, lol). Oh and traveling to our white water adventure and feeling like the car was going to fall off the cliff (one lane road around a mountain). OH and seeing a movie in another country..their theater looked like an opera house! I enjoyed staying in different hostels and meeting people from all over the world. I loved hiking the National Park and riding the ferry between islands while watching dolphins jump in their NATURAL habitat and watching the seals.... Getting lost in New York subways LOL
Skydiving in Cedartown, GA from 14,000 feet! I'm serious, your mind literally goes blank when you are about to be pushed from the plane attached to someone's chest while looking at the clouds far below you..yes..the clouds are BELOW you. It doesn't feel like a rollercoaster at all...you just feel like you're coasting while floating since you're falling at terminal velocity.
EVERYTHING IN NEW ZEALAND!!! I definitely recommend a trip there! I studied abroad there for awhile which is why I got to explore and backpack throughout the islands.
