Last time I called horseback riding as one of the most extreme activities, at least for me. Today I would like to show where this feeling came from.
I wonder if ou guys have watched an amazing cartoon – Spirit and the main hero of it – Mustang the stallion. Well, let me correct my previous opinion about the extremeness of horseback riding: it is like that if the horse is the same as Mustang, the stallion with wild nature and the character that always needs freedom!
Just take a look at one of the scenes where it shows all his capriciousness to the people, who want to take control of him! That definitely is so extreme!
Let me tell you that in my opinion,horseback riding is one of the most extreme activities that exist in the world. It is true that it is not something only a few people can go for. In fact, one thirds of the world can easily ride a horse. However, it takes so much braveness, patience and skills to be able to master this sport.
Horses are harder than cars or bikes. The thing is, instructions on using cars and other transports are the same for everybody. However, the horses are living creatures and therefore, each of them have their own “personalities”, caprices and qualities. It is necessary to be able to find the common language with them. Only then can we make friends with them and they will let us take control of themselves.
While riding a horse, the feeling of speed and adrenaline is totally different, because both the horse and the person act and the result of double energy is definitely fantastic!
I used to look at bikes and cycling as the part of peaceful and healthy way of life… Until I found out about some crazy activities done by the same bicycle. It definitely is incredible what a lot of young men can do mastering the bikes. When they get together, there comes a feeling of a real extreme show about to start.
Unfortunately, some activities do not only consist of some tricks with bikes, but a long extreme challenges, such as moutain biking. For some people, simply climbing the mountain would be hard enough, not even talking about riding a bike there! But some brave ones out there take this risk and just go for it.
If you have not heard before, there is an interesting movie about one of those interesting bikers and his adventures. Based on a true story, it is guaranteed to give you chills!
Last time’s rope jumping was pretty insane that not everyone would dare to go for. On the other hand, it lasts just for several seconds and that’s it – you are all over with it. However, there is something even more extreme, which takes a lot more braveness and time. This can be nothing but paragliding!
This is the activity for those, who always dreamed about flying like a free bird! I wonder if you guys have watched the French movie – “Intouchables”. The scene when two friends go for it is just sooo precious!!!
I love that extreme lovers like me are usually crazy and there is no limit to their fantasies! Remember, when I was little, daddy used to punish me sometimes for doing foolishness with my friends. When I said, I just followed them, he used to say: “Will you then jump from the roof if they do so?”
That seemed weird for me and my answer usually was “No…”. This is why I could not stop laughing when I decided to go for rope jumping for the first time! It was the same thing that seemed impossible when I was a child and now I myself am encouraging my duded to do this craziness after me!
Take a look at how these guys are doing it and see if you also would dare to go for it!
For some people, skating is not really a big deal, but for me it was! Looking at the people, who look like flying above the ice, it always seemed to be the easiest thing to do. However, when I first wore the skates and stood on ice…
Yes, you guessed right… I was afraid that all my body will be covered in bruises if I keep on falling! Thanks to the kind people around, they held my hands and gave me the tips of how to stand and move on ice correctly.
For the beginners I would highly recommend to avoid indoor skating rinks, since there are barriers, on which they usually depend on and never try to skate by themselves. Do not avoid falling that much either, you need to fight your fear in order to skate freely and bravely in future
Just several hours passed since the New Year came. Wishing a very Happy New Year to everyone, I would like to offer some cool options to start the New Year with. Since most of us are on winter vacations, we have enough time to relax and spend quality time with family and friends. It means that making a bit longer trips also would be great.
Number one way to have fun in winter is of course going for winter sports, such as skiing, snowboarding and so on. In Kyrgyzstan it is the easiest thing to find a suitable destination for all those activities. Kara-Kol ski base is the most famous places, which became the first choice of many travelers and locals. It is situated in Issyk-Kul province.
The place is perfect for its beautiful mountain peaks and great snow condition, which provides smooth rides both during skiing and snowboarding. The rentals of equipment are available, so no worries if you do not have your own ones. There are also cable cars for visitors to enjoy the view from above.
Some years after I discovered what I thought to be the best sport – skiing, there occured something even greater! It is not absolutely different from skiing though. I can probably call it the evolution in skiing.
I am talking about one of the most extreme things to do ever – heli-skiing! For some people, height and flight is already a huge risk, others are afraid of speed to death! So, heli-skiing is the combination of those two mind-blowing actions in one.
The feeling the one gets during heli-skiing is so hard to explain. Better to see once than hearing twice, so check this video out and share the emotions of those awesome and brave people!
I must say that the chance to skiing was one of the biggest blessings I ever had in my life! The adrenaline rush, that amazing feeling cannot be explained if only you try it yourself!
However, not everything went that smooth till I reached that level of enjoying the process. Oh how I still remember those first attempts and failures, which seemed to never end! It was so unusual to wear those weird skiing gears and controlling my steps were even harder. The road seemed so sleek and it was impossible for me to even make normal steps.
When I tried to “ski” from up, I felt like a circling ball, because right after the first meter I found myself on the ground and rolling down! Thanks God that despite all of those, I kept on trying more and more, until I finally leaned to control my moves. That was when I forgot all hardships and started enjoying life even more!
These extreme cold winter days are reminding me of the days when I first tried snowmobile! As a little kid, all I knew was a cute sleigh to ride on snow, so when I saw new snowmobiles, it seemed as if we are at the highest point of civilization!
This cool invention doubled the joy people get in winter vacations. Unlike a simple sleigh, snowmobile ride is more safe, easier to control and FASTER! Of course, going over the limits cannot guarantee safety anymore (just like when I ran into the pile of snow!).
Unfortunately, not everyone has an access to such a cool vehicle. However, there are special offers from tour agencies, which provide a nice experience for affordable prices. Click here for more information about them.
