Looking down at the chimneys in Cappadocia is more than spectacular! This adventure gets even more exciting when you soar high up in the midst of hundreds of other balloons.

- Take a road trip
This is as simple as getting in your car, either alone or in the company of a friend, and driving. Just hit the road and only stop when you must. You can choose to road-trip within your county or to choose a random spot on the globe. Go with the wind and let loose. If you don’t have an idea where to take a road trip, a good recommendation would be Canada’s Cabot Trail. There are lots of things to see and do on the way. You will also meet new people and sample new cuisines.
- Try a new game
What about you go for a retreat, either as a family or with your workplace buddies and try out new games? One thrilling game that will excite you is playing paintball. Paintball guns aren’t real guns (they are powered by air pressure and they have little plastic balls of paint for bullets), but they give you the same sensation as shooting with a real gun.
