LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- Studies from a global research network show that 69% of people have a list of things they want to do in life.(i) Explore some of the top 10 things you should do before you die.
Climb a mountain or volcano
Set yourself the ultimate challenge and attempt to climb a mountain or undergo a trek into unknown territory, such as an active volcano. Pacay is a popular active volcano in Central America that is located over 8,300 ft above sea level.(i)
Thanks to modern advances in the travel industry, jet-setting has never been easier. If you can make your own pilgrimage to somewhere unique such as Africa it could be a 'once in a lifetime' experience.
See some of the 7 wonders of the world
Whilst it might be difficult to tick all seven off your list, you could aim to see at least one in your lifetime. From the Great Pyramid of Giza to the Great Wall of China and the Colossuem in Rome, you could experience mankind in all its glory.
See the natural wonders of the world
Whilst many will be in awe of these man-made structures, the natural wonders of the world should not be missed either. The Northern Lights largely seen across the North Pole, Canada, Alaska, Greenland and Norway is an unmissable sight.
Watch the sunset and sun rise
You don't need to be travelling the world to enjoy one of life's simple pleasures. Just taking a moment to watch the sun rise or set is a natural wonder in its own right.
Learn a new skill
You're never too old to stop learning, so why not challenge yourself to learning a skill, from developing your understanding of a foreign language to learning how to sail or discovering new cooking recipes.
Step foot on all 7 continents
Set yourself the challenge of setting foot on all seven continents; Antarctica, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australasia, South America and North America.
Throwing yourself out of a plane or jumping off a bridge with an elastic rope attached to you could be the ultimate adrenaline rush, and it is something which many people dream of.
Write a will
Before you pass away you may wish to ensure that both your legacy and your finances are passed onto loved ones. Alternatively, take out life insurance which could also help to ensure your loved ones receive financial aid should you pass away.
Attend a cultural event
Attending a cultural event could be a 'once in a lifetime' experience, from festivals in Israel to the Carnival in Rio or even just a local arts event, there are a huge number of events happening across the globe.
