“Anything that gets your blood racing is probably worth doing.”
This quote from Hunter S. Thompson rings true with any adrenaline junkie, as any adrenaline
junkie can tell you there’s nothing more satisfying than the thrill you get from living life on the
edge. If you’re reading this and can relate to what we’re saying, then these next three life
changing experiences are for you:
1. Take a Dip in the Devil’s Pool
You’ll find Devil’s Pool at the Victoria Falls, the largest waterfall in the world, in Livingstone,
Africa. Take a trip out sometime between September and December, when the waters are at
just the right level to form a rock barrier between where you’ll be sipping on adrenaline and the
edge of this massive waterfall.
2. Bike Death’s Road
Travel out to La Paz, Bolivia and grab a bike to head out to Death’s Road. The name probably
says enough to get the adrenaline going before you even get there, but this road is an
experience you’ll definitely want to have in your lifetime. It’s a 40-mile long, 11,000-foot descent narrow road that will get your heart racing with sheer drops. Even better? Most places don’t have guardrails.
3. Go Canyon Swinging
Visit Queenstown, New Zealand (any adrenaline junkie’s must-see destination) for the world’s
highest canyon swing. Get ready for some heart-pumping action as you free fall for almost 22
feet. Then relish in the glory as you look over Shotover Canyon. This experience can even be
customized with different types of jumps, so you can get one of the best adrenaline rushes of
Enjoy the Rush
