Are you a Travel Daredevil?

Some travellers are a bit more daring than others, veering more towards the reckless things in every country that they go to. If you consider Danger to be your middle name, then you may be one of these travel daredevils.

Take a look at the list below...

 You never plan your trips

Who needs an itinerary anyway? Travelling should be fun and spontaneous! As a traveller you prefer to the thrill of an adventure, like jumping on a plane randomly and seeing what happens and where it takes you. For you it is all about the journey not the destination.

You will try just about ANY food

What’s the point of travelling somewhere if you’re not going to eat something potentially life-threatening? When you visit a new destination you get a thrill from trying the most bizarre local food you can find. From Hákarl (rotten shark carcass) in Iceland and fried spiders in Cambodia to the deadly Fugu in Japan and bird’s nest soup in Asia.

Your bucket list is insane

Your bucket list is unlike the regular traveller’s to-do list, it is filled with only crazy activities that involve adrenaline-filled death-defying acts. If any of these things are on your bucket list then you definitely have the daredevil spirit:

Highline above a canyon in USA
Climb vertical cliffs in Ethiopia without ropes
Cliff diving at La Quebrada, Mexica
Abseil from Table Mountain in Cape Town
Cycle death road in Bolivia

 You don’t care where you spend the night

Who has time to be picky about accommodation? You will sleep just about anywhere you can rest your head! Whether it be sleeping in a flimsy tent in bear country, staying in a snow igloo or catching some z’s in a tree hotel high up above the ground.

You always get asked if your pictures and videos are PhotoShopped

99% of your pictures and videos captured by your GoPro, which is always attached to your body, are of you dangerously hanging off the edge of a cliff or volcano boarding at lightening speeds. There is no need to PhotoShop anything because you are such a damn daredevil!

If you see yourself as a travel daredevil, make sure to take out specialized travel insurance – you’ll probably need it!


Looking to visit the beautiful Mother City (maybe for abseiling?) book your Airport Shuttle service to or from Cape Town International Airport today! Airport Shuttle is also available in Durban!
