A relaxing beach vacation may sound perfect to some, but for the more adventurous, it just isn’t exciting enough. Unless getting to the beach meant hiking through the jungle or parachuting out of an airplane. Then it might be OK.

Adventure travelers aren’t interested in plain old sightseeing or a typical beach holiday. They prefer to spend their vacations doing active, exciting, and possibly even slightly dangerous activities. They like to go to remote places that most tourists never visit. Find out if Marni and Ella are thrill seekers when it comes to travel.

对某些人而言,轻松的海滩度假或许听起来真是不错,但对那些更爱探险的人来说,这显然不够刺激。除非前往海滩意味着徒步穿越丛林或从飞机上跳伞。只有这样,可能还算满意。
喜欢探险的旅客对普通老旧的旅游景点或典型的海滩度假不感兴趣。他们更愿意通过参与积极、令人兴奋甚至可能有点危险的活动度过他们的假期。他们喜欢去大多数游客从未到过的偏远地方。让我们看看玛尼和艾拉在旅游方面是否愿意寻找刺激。

Ella:  So when it comes to adventure, Marni, are you a relaxation kind of person or more of a thrill seeker?

Marni:  You mean like traveling, would I prefer just to go somewhere and actually have a vacation, or do I like to travel?

Ella:  Mm-hmm.

Marni:  I’m definitely more of an adventure traveler.

Ella:  Awesome.

Marni:  Yeah, absolutely. I think, doing it now…I mean, I think you can enjoy Paris when you’re 85 and you can barely walk, but right now is the time to run through the Amazon rainforest or go on safari in Africa or climb Mount Everest. I haven’t done that, but…

Ella:  What is one of the wildest things you’ve done on vacation?

Marni:  I actually, I went on safari last year, and that was pretty amazing. Actually, I never really thought it would be as incredible as it was. There’s just something about seeing animals in their native habitat. It was incredible. So yeah, I like to push myself when I travel. Kinda get out of my comfort zone, do some crazy things. How about you?

Ella:  I definitely like adventure, but I like to balance it out with some relaxation. I mean, I’ve done the bungee jumping and paragliding and stuff, but I definitely like to just lay out at the beach, too. So as long as there’s a good balance of both…but yeah, adventure is definitely something I seek when I go on vacation.

Marni:  Yeah, absolutely.

I am fond of traveling without timetable, only with a map in my pocket! Although I haven’t been able to travel abroad I love the adventure!

I agree with Marni that it is better to have an adventure travel than relax on a beach. I ‘ve never been a thrill seeker, but there was  a time when it seemed interesting to me to try something new and a bit risky, so I went to  skydiving school for that purpuse . It was really great for me to try myself in parachuting, and I’ll never forget those days.

Sometimes I dream about adventurous me. But those crazy thing are very far from my world. For me, adventure can be day at roller-coaster park, or walking in the nearest (very nearest) mountains alone or with a couple of friends, or riding on a bike somewhere i’ve never been before (not very far away from home though). I need new impressions, bright emotions, but I don’t need to do some really outstanding things to get this.


And warm beaches are great too for a week or two, because there are no such things where I live. (=

I am an adventure traveler, definitely. I don’t like beaches or any crowded places, it doesn’t make me feel exciting or something. I prefer to go mountain climbing with my friends or family and make bonfires, scary stories in the middle of the night when no one’s around except our group. It’s scary but I think it’s exciting and thrilling :)
