Are You an Adrenaline Junkie?

Adrenaline junkie refers to a person who favors dangerous activities for the adrenaline rush which comes with them. There are many reasons to travel and one of them includes trying extreme sports or activities. From sky diving to bungee jumping, rock climbing , white water rafting and smashing tomatoes into fellow travelers, these activities give anyone a rush.

But you don’t always need to do extreme things to feel the adrenaline rush during your travel. Hiking a longer or more challenging trail, as well as finding your way in a new city where you cannot speak the language or read the street signs can be just as scary.

When was the last time you did something traveling that scared you? Any plans for challenging yourself in the future?

Before I turned 20 I got the chance to try paragliding (with a coach) on the hills close to my city. I absolutely loved it. Since then I’m hoping to try bungee jumping (I almost got the chance in 2008 but the platform in Vienna was closed due to the wind). And although I like such extreme activities, sometimes hiking a longer or more challenging trail gives me enough adrenaline rush to last for a while. And just some weeks ago, climbing to the viewing platform from the Town Hall’s Tower in our city was enough to give me a rush. I do hope to do a bungee jump soon and also try zip lining.
