It’s not every day that we get to experience the world in all of its glory, but if you’ve just won a huge lottery jackpot, then you’ve got all the money and time in the world to explore every corner of our beautiful planet. Here are some of the wildest adventures that money can buy.
Travel to Japan to Eat $10,900 Grapes
The most expensive bundle of grapes that money can buy is the Ruby Roman variety. Sold in Japan for a record high of $10,900, these grapes are renowned for their incredibly sweet and juicy flesh that many have likened to cotton candy. Though the price is steep, only a handful of batches are produced each year, making them incredibly rare and sought-after. If grapes aren’t enough, then Japan has a flurry of expensive fruits such as melons and mangoes that frequently sell for over $10,000.
Challenge the World’s Highest Cliff Jump
Located in Queenstown, New Zealand, the Nevis Bungee Jump is a daredevil’s dream. It’s a 134-metre drop that lasts well over 8 seconds, soaring your heart rate up like nothing else could. It’s one of the ultimate challenges that you’ll ever face in life and your adrenaline levels will shoot up the moment you start scaling the mountain to plunge down the side of the cliff. This bungee jump is not for the faint of heart and only the most hardened thrill seekers need apply!
Travel to Space With Virgin Galactic
Want to go to space? For just $250,000, Virgin Galactic will take you to the upper atmosphere and beyond! Over 650 people have already pre-booked their tickets but the company has yet to announce when it will start setting dates in stone. If you’ve won the lottery then a quarter of a million dollars probably isn’t much, so why not place your order today for a space adventure?
Extreme Tours in Dubai
When we were small, we got to play with sand pits. Now that we’re older, how about we upgrade to a desert? With a seemingly endless desert to play in, there are countless things to do in Dubai that will get your adrenaline pumping. There are quad bike experiences, sand surfing, camping out and cooking, 4x4 adventure and even camelback rides. Just think of Dubai as a wild sandbox where you can do almost anything you can imagine! As a lottery winner, the sky (or dessert) is the limit.
Journey to the Bottom of the Sea
Back in 2012, James Cameron did a solo dive all the way down the Mariana Trench, one of the deepest parts of the earth that we humans can reach. So if a film director can do it, why can’t a lottery winner? It might be scary, but touching down at the depths of the ocean is something that few people can claim they’ve ever done in their lives –and you could be one of them when you win the lottery!
Dive With Great White Sharks
Most people would stay well clear of a great white shark because of how powerful and deadly these creatures are, but you’d be surprised at the number of thrillseekers that are actively searching for experiences where they can get up close and personal with the aquatic creatures. Shark diving is certainly not for people that scare easily, but if you can handle the fear and get yourself down to Southern Australia, then you’ll have a fantastic memorable adventure where you got close to sharks and lived to tell the tale!
See the Hanging Coffins of Sagada
Sagada is already a beautiful destination in the Philippines to visit, but did you know that the mountains have a bizarre yet also creepy secret? Do a bit of searching around and you’ll find dozens of hanging coffins. It’s a traditional burial that takes place every few years or so and it’s something that only tribes exclusive to Sagada actually do. It’s an eerie sight to behold, but it’s also one that you absolutely need to see just how unique it is!
Visit the Gates of Hell in Turkmenistan
Did you know that Turkmenistan has the gates of hell? In the depths of the Karakum Desert exists a fiery crater that has been burning since 1971. It refuses to go out and is frequently referred to as “The Gates of Hell” by all the locals because you can see the infernal glow from miles away. Not only is it a fantastic site, but you can even camp nearby in the desert!
With so many options to choose from, the only question to a multimillionaire is which one to experience first.
