As you all know, I am constantly looking for new places to travel, uncharted territory to explore, and new adventure to be had.  As it is the start of 2014, I  have been looking into planning some trips for this year.  I have been doing some research on the internet for some lists of travel opportunities and a recent article caught my attention.  The article details the top trips for adventure travelers in 2014.  The following are just a few that they mentioned that I though sounded interesting.  To learn more, check out the article linked above.

Kayak the beautiful waters of Antarctica

1.Kayak in Antarctica– As someone who is a fan of cold weather, this trip looks interesting. Not to mention, you get to be in the great outdoors, see some beautiful views that not many are lucky (or brave) enough to ever see, and you might even come across seals, whales and penguins! This trip begins at the Antarctic Peninsula, but you must then take a boat to the Antarctic Circle.  From here, you can camp, kayak across glasslike waters and through icebergs, as well as snowshoe.  Sounds like quite the trip to me!

2. Winboarding & Sandsurfing in Jericoacoara, Brazil- Now, this trip isn’t usually my style, but as one who is always looking to try something new, I feel like I have to at least consider it.  Jericoacoara, better known as Jeri, is a somewhat remote, quiet village along the coast of Northwest Brazil is a relatively undiscovered coastal village in northwestern Brazil. Sandboarding, like snowboarding, is a popular sport there- envision snowboarding but on sand dunes- how wild!  That part is extremely intriguing.  I feel like there’s probably a lot to be seen and explored there, and they also have windsurfing, yoga and horseback riding.  Could be really fun!

3. Explore the Uncharted Coast of Tanzania- Another warmer-weather opportunity, but my taste for the unknown can get the best of me.  While Tanzania’s wonders, such as  Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti National Park and Lake Tanganyika are huge pulls for tourists, there are still vast expanses of coastline that very few have ever set foot on.   The far, far North is land that may as well be unknown when compared to the Southern areas.  This trop os the only tour offering individuals the opportunity to Kayak this uncharted areas.  According to owner of the company that is facilitating this trip, “If you kayak there you will be one of less than a 1000 [people] who has ever had the opportunity to kayak in this area.”  Now THAT sounds awesome!

These are just a few of the beyond-belief trip opportunities that are out there for 2014.  Hopefully I will get a chance to check out a few of these!
