So you are planning a trip for a week or a year and that dreaded question comes up. Should you buy travel insurance? This is really a personal choice for each and every person. When we traveled Southeast Asia for 10 months, we opted to buy travel insurance. We wanted to be sure we were covered for the unexpected. We’ve heard many stories of people having accidents and wishing they had travel insurance. We can only hope every day is a peaceful day.
So far I have traveled to 50+ countries in my lifetime and I have to say, I fell in love with the nature and beauty in Langkawi, Malaysia. Shhh, don’t tell anyone else about these awesome things to do in Langkawi. I am almost hesitant to tell you about it, as I don’t want tourism to spoil what we have experienced.
During our 8 week summer road trip, we spent a few days in Valencia. My mom, brother, and I went on a tour with Segway Valencia. These are my favorite tours, because we can see so much in only a few hours.
The Fantasticable was a kid favorite! Flying high in the French Alps, above the hamlet of Plaine-Dranse, to Châtel. The kids soared at almost 100 km/h (60 mph) and 240 meters above ground (790 feet). Are we nuts for letting our kids do this?
When we first moved to Spain a few years ago, we would see people flying around in the sky with parachutes (paragliding). We had no idea what it was and drove over to La Herradura to check it out. It turns out this is one of the best places for paragliding in Spain, right over the Mediterranean Sea! We watched so many of them floating in the sky and then landing on the beach. I knew I wanted to try it one day, as I love to try anything that is full of adventure.
A few years ago I read about the bamboo train in Cambodia and I was fascinated with it. It sounded like a fun experience that needed to go on the bucket list, if and when I ever made it to Cambodia. Back then, it was a far off dream to ever visit Cambodia and look were we went! As part of our last few days our of a month in Cambodia, we made it to Battambang and rode that Bamboo Train!
