When it comes to the perfect holiday destination, everyone has different criteria. There are those for whom the ideal trip involves sitting on the beach with a cocktail watching the world go by while they relax all day. For some people, there’s nothing like throwing themselves into the culture and lifestyle of somewhere totally new, absorbing all of the history of a place and learning as much about it as possible. And then there are the thrill seekers. The people for whom no trip is complete without the chance to get their pulse pounding and their blood pumping.
