The new age of exploration is all about self-exploration — seeing how far you can push yourself, seeing what you’re really made of. Matador teamed up with Flights.com to help guide those whose travel style can best be described as “adrenaline junkie.” Here are 15 ways to make your travels even more adventurous and even more rewarding.
1. Cliff jumping
Easily the quickest activity on our list, cliff jumping / diving can be done anywhere that has cliffs, gravity, and non-lethal materials (i.e., water) at the base of said cliffs. It involves basically no preparation — all you need is a swimsuit and a little bit of courage — and there are countless amazing places around the world to do it. One notable spot for the uncertain is Rick’s Cafe in Negril, Jamaica, where, if you don’t want to jump, you can have a drink and watch other fools do it instead. For more of a challenge, check out Palawan in the Philippines.
2. Go Skydiving
The Health Benefits of Skydiving. Skydiving is an activity most people have on their bucket lists. Many people are unaware that this activity actually has many benefits to the body. More than the adrenaline rush, skydiving helps you de-stress, forget about your worries, and just enjoy life.
3. Go To The Beach
You get plenty of air! Salty air has the ability to clear out your lungs while bringing a smile to your face. It’s healing! Your whole body will be immediately refreshed when you step onto the shore.
4. Travel To Your Favorite City/Place
Traveling improves your health.

For some people, wandering abroad is even a cure for depression and anxiety. Of course, it’s not a foolproof cure, but it might help you feel better, both physically and psychologically.
Traveling more is likely to have a tremendous impact on your mental well-being, especially if you’re no used to going out of your comfort zone. Trust me: travel more and your doctor will be happy. Be sure to get in touch with your physician, they might recommend some medication to accompany you in your travels, especially if you’re heading to regions of the globe with potentially dangerous diseases.
