Bucketlist Alternatives to Skydiving
Where on Earth?
"Ten worldwide suggestions for those of you planning your bucketlists and would prefer to sit quietly on a plane as it delivers you to your next destination rather than jump out of it."
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
Item #1: Bungy Jumping.
What bucketlist would be complete without it? But forget about the commercial bungy operators and head instead to Pentecost Island, the seventh largest of the group of islands that make up this Pacific Ocean nation. Tie some vines round your ankles and plunge head first to the ground with the native villagers in the annual ritual known as naghol in the local Bislama dialect. Where has your bucketlist taken you first?
Item #2: Appear in a Movie.
Hooray for Bollywood! Pass through the Gateway of India for your ticket to stardom. If you want to recreate the love scene from 'From Here to Eternity', do it on Chowpatty Beach. If you'd prefer to scale an Art Deco building like King Kong, take your pick from the many examples of this architectural style on Marine Drive, or if you see yourself as more of an Indiana Jones, head underground and explore the Elephanta Caves. You can only film yourself doing these in which city?
Item #3: Run a Marathon.
A forty-two kilometre jog sounds a bit long and boring, so let's spice it up and shorten it a bit. Get your running shoes on early in the morning and head straight for the Casco Antiguo. Rendezvous with other competitors around the Plaza Santo Domingo until you hear a rocket fired and then run like the devil through the streets until you reach your final destination, the Plaza Del Toros. Oh, and try to stay well in front of the fully grown bulls that will be running with you. Which city will see you run faster than you've ever run before?
Item #4: Play in a Rock 'n' Roll Band.
It's a long way to the top and even the greats had to start out small. This German harbour city on the Elbe River was the stomping ground of a young outfit who became The Beatles. Like them, your music career can have its foundations in the clubs and bars of the Reeperbahn district of St. Pauli quarter. In which city can your Rock 'n' Roll dreams come true?
Item #5: Ride a Motorbike.
Ride a lap of this island located in the Irish Sea in their annual Tourist Trophy motorcycle race. Begin at the capital of Douglas and take your time; you don't want to miss the castles, abbeys and ancient Celtic monuments that are dotted around the island. And should you be thrown from your motorcycle, take comfort in the local motto: "Whichever way you throw it, it will stand." What location marks the halfway point of your bucketlist journey?
Isle of Wight
Isle of Man
Isle of Skye
Item #6: Write a Novel.
It has been said many times that everybody has a book in them, but where do you find your inspiration? The port town of Cojimar, the Hotel Ambos Mundos and his own residence of Finca la Vigia, all located in this Caribbean capital, were the inspiration for Ernest Hemingway. So where should you go to emulate Papa and sip daiquiris whilst writing your Nobel Prize winning book?
Item #7: Go Snorkelling.
If you want to see colourful fish, go to an aquarium, because in the town of Llanwrtyd Wells you will be snorkelling in mud. This town lies upon the Irfon River, a short distance north of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the county of Powys, and is the site of the annual World Bog Snorkelling Championships. In which country does your bucketlist see you get down and dirty?
Item #8: Go on a Cruise.
Hold on tight because this cruise treads the fine line between pleasure and (possible) pain. Rising in the eastern side of the Richardson Mountains just north of Queenstown, the Shotover River gradually picks up speed before reaching its narrowest point at Skipper's Canyon. A hair-raising, high speed cruise down the Shotover in a jetboat can be experienced where?
Item #9: Join a Sports Team.
Around forty kilometres north of Turin lies the small Italian town of Ivrea. It is here that tourists are encouraged to join the locals in the annual Battle of the Oranges by arming themselves with this citrus fruit and throwing them at enemy teams. Ivrea can be found in which northwestern region of Italy, the second largest of all of Italy's regions?
Item #10: See How the Other Half Live.
After all, life is not all about ourselves. Leave the swimsuit at home; you'll have no time to frolic on Copacabana, Ipanema or even Leblon beach. Your time will be spent with the residents of Providence Hill, one of the oldest of Brazil's many slums, all under the watchful eye of the Christ the Redeemer statue. To which city must you travel to tick off your final bucketlist destination?
Rio de Janeiro
