Some people travel to escape the daily grind, some to learn a language, some to experience new tastes and flavors.
Then you have those who travel for the adventure – for the adrenaline-pumping activities, for the dangerously thrilling experiences.
Here are 5 adrenaline junkies who will make your jaw drop:
1. Chi Ken
After traveling to over 43 countries around the world, Chi Ken can say that he’s living life to its fullest. In his words, he travels “full tilt with no regrets.”
From sand boarding in Peruvian deserts to riding along the World’s Deadliest Road to tobogganing on a small mat at adrenaline-kicking speeds down massive ice spouts near a live volcano, he’s an inspiration to those who want a little more action in their travels.
2. My Walkabout
My Walkabout calls himself a nomad, a storyteller, a soul searcher, and a dreamer of better things. His hunger for experience has also resulted in quite an impressive travel resume. One of his more daring episodes was a ride on a micro flight over the world-famous Victoria Falls.
A professional traveler, Daniel loves everything that brings him to the closest edges of reality in this life. He’s an avid climber and intrepid cyclist who thrives on 30-mile bike routes.
Nevertheless, even adrenaline junkies need some down time. When he’s not hanging from a rope or burning calories pedaling, Daniel enjoys feeding giraffes and rhinos or just hanging out on the beach.
4. Sarah Kelson
Don’t let the seemingly standard cat profile picture fool you, Sarah Kelson is a rockstar–an adrenaline-seeking rockstar. She’s snorkeled with stingrays and hugged a shark in Belize, been a dog musher in Alaska, and stayed in a tent out in the South African wild. Did we mention that she’s currently a glacier guide?
Melissa is currently traveling the world: 7 continents in 12 months. Whether it’s Antarctica, Tanzania, Peru or Iceland, she manages to find escapades that you may or may not want to try. She’s had lions walk up to her truck in Africa, spent two nights in a Jordanian desert, and taken a dip in Antarctic waters.
