With Summer practically at our doorsteps, it’s time to sit the crew down for an ice-cold beer and make a Summer travel plan. Not just any plan ‒ with your typical tourist destinations ‒ oh no! A Summer plan so unbelievably cool and filled with testosterone, it’s going to go down in history as the most off-the-hook road trip in your life.
Take a look at what 2017 has got in store for the cool kids.
The Grand Canyon
A bit of nature, a bit of the concrete jungle, but adrenaline all the way! The first destination you have to hit up with your boys this summer is the Grand Canyon in the US. Sounds cliché? Perhaps, but it will all be worth it once you step up to face the white-water rafting challenge awaiting for you in the belly of the beast.
What better way to experience one of the most iconic natural wonders of the world than by fearing for your life as you rapidly descend into oblivion? Exactly, so save your sightseeing plans for when you retire and use your youth and vigor to create some unforgettable memories with your friends.
The Carnival in Rio
Have you seen what the infamous Carnival looks like, have you heard the tales of the ungodly and infinitely thrilling events that take place amidst the biggest party in the world? Well, they are all true. The Carnival is not just a sight for sore eyes, rather it is about experiencing the vibrant and overly-enthusiastic nature of the people around you.
Get ready for a five-day non-stop party where alcohol is so strong that it would be illegal back home, women so beautiful you’re lucky you don’t have a girlfriend, and people as polite and friendly as Canadians in a traffic jam.
South African Safari
Zoos are for family vacations and tourists, but safaris are for young adrenaline junkies like yourselves. There are few things in life as thrilling and amusing as watching one of your cool friends suggesting this road trip, and a few days later witnessing him screaming and curling up into a ball of fear just because a lion decided to go for a walk.
Other than a chance to tease your brave friends, you will have the opportunity to witness the unforgiving essence of nature and encounter all of its wonders, for good or bad, in their raw form. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Looking to cool off from the safaris and other life-threatening experiences you had your friends go through? Then Sydney is your next destination. Mind you, everything is upside down in the Land of Oz (except the toilet water, it flushes in the same direction, sorry), and it is currently wintertime in the gem of New South Wales.
Luckily, an Aussie winter is about as cold as Spring in June ‒ not actually cold. You will be walking into one of the most vibrant nightlife cultures in the world as the Sydney hipster arena is unparalleled in its art scene, open-air shows, and amazing fusion restaurants. Moreover, you will also find the most exquisite tastes waiting for you in hipster bars serving some of the best craft beers and chicken wings in the world, such as Della Hyde in Darlinghurst.
The Monaco Grand Prix
Finally, we have the most prestigious and notable formula racing event in the world, the Monaco Grand Prix. Held each year for the last 75 years, the Grand Prix is the epitome of class fused with adrenaline, inspired by an overflow of testosterone.
Wealthy men escorted by their trophy wives will be coming in from all over the world to witness contestants navigating 2 miles of pavement at incredible speeds, cheering, betting and hoping something goes awry ‒ and you want to be in the center of it.
The Grand Prix is held at the end of May, and you will definitely want to schedule your ticket for the next year, if they are not sold out already.
“Pack your bags and head on out to an adventure of a lifetime!”
There are tourists, and there are travelers. Moreover, there are cool travelers such as you, looking for a dash of excitement and a surge of adrenaline with every plane ticket scheduled to take you places most normal people would rather experience on their TV screens. But not you, so grab the boys, pack your bags and head on out to an adventure of a lifetime!
