Reach out to mankind
Consider experiencing the call to prayer at the mosques at Isfahan in Iran or the first site of the pyramids on the approach to Abu Simbel in Egypt. You could be watching Highland dancing in Scotland, singing in Papua New Guinea, Buddhist chanting in remote Tibetan monasteries or dancing the night away at the Burning Man Festival in the Mojave Desert.
A hot air ballooning trip and sky diving top this category. Whether it is above the African plains or the Australian desert, Everest Base Camp in Nepal or Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, these adventures appeal to the more active Baby Boomer, as do trips on small cruise boats to Antarctica and the Arctic. Think about that hike high along the Great Wall of China or bobbing up and down in a boat in the Galapagos Islands, or careering along a zipline in a Costa Rican jungle canopy.
Most adventure tour operators are country specific, but one that has global offerings is Cox & Kings.
