Are you a thrill seeker? I’m not inherently a thrill seeker, but I try to push myself. it all started when I thought that maybe skydiving would help me to face my fear of heights. Long story short, it was a great experience, but I am still afraid of heights. After skydiving I remember having this euphoric feeling because I faced something that terrified me and got through it. The perfect thrill needs to scare me just the right amount. I need to think I can do it even though it’s going to make me uncomfortable. If I think I could die or I’ll just be miserable, it’s probably not an adventure I want to undertake
Thrills I’ve Experienced
- Skydiving – I went a few years ago and it was fantastic. Also, it was a tandem dive and I was VERY attracted to the professional I went diving with by the end of the ordeal. Nothing like facing death to make you glom onto someone 😉
- Zip Lining – I’m afraid of heights so this was intense. Very fun though.
Thrills I Want to Undertake
- Swim with sharks
- Cage of Death in Australia – I’m a little iffy on this one because it seems like kind of cruel to the crocodile.
- CN Tower Edge Walk in Toronto
- World’s Steepest Rollercoaster in Japan
- Night Zip Lining
- Kayak over a waterfall or whitewater raft (there’s a new kind of raft that’s supposedly unflippable)
- Hot Air Ballooning
- Dine in the Sky (you’re strapped in, but suspended from a crane)
- Harbor Bridge Climb in Australia
- Thrill Walk in Switzerland (I want to do this! I’m traveling to Switzerland soon. If you have any recommendations for places to go and things to see, please let me know.)
Things I Won’t Do
All of these are a little too far outside of my comfort zone.
- Pilot an airplane
- Bungee jump
- Cliff Walk in China
- Running of the Bulls in Spain
- Hang Glide
- Scuba dive
- Cliff Dive
So there’s my thrill bucket list. I’m not sure where the line between ok and too scary is, but I know it when I see it.
