What would be a good birthday adventure?

Asked by GD_Kimble (2277points) January 16th, 2008

My birthday is right around the corner, and as I continue to tiptoe through my early 30s, I’m trying to make each birthday special. I’ve outgrown the big, loud drunken blowout, and am looking to do something solo and more personal. A trip maybe? Ride through the desert on a horse with no name? In a perfect world, it would be something akin to Hunter S. Thompson crossed with Hemingway, but unfortunately, cost is a factor. Ideas?

Well for my birthday back in October it was nice just to be with a friend or two, we went to Niagara Falls (I live close to there) had dinner and went to the Midway to play the arcade. Do something like that, be a kid again, have a nice dinner, eat a giant dessert, tell them it’s your birthday most places will do something awesome for you. Maybe hit a city that’s not too far away from you and just wander the streets, go in and out of little shops and just explore with a good friend. It’s fun =) And if you find an arcade then go for it!

A rock climbing course. Sky diving. A cooking seminar. Anything that you’ve thought about in the past but tossed off as too frivolous or troublesome or out of character…..a night at a salsa club, a day spent volunteering with Habitat, an unusual museum exhibit.

where do you live?

I’ll give you a couple ideas I’ve been dying to do…

Kayak with Orcas
Cage dive with Great Whites
Go to hotsprings in Iceland
See the Northern Lights
Explore the bottom of the Grand Canyon
Go to an Island & do nothing
Camp out on Isle Royale

Just some ideas…where do you live & what’s your realistic budget?

You could just like lose yourself in nature as vanguardian suggests in many of the options above.

I would also suggest something totally against your grain, like try reversing your sexuality for a night or commiting a heinous crime ( not against person or property though).
