  1. I would add a winter sports from island or Greenland too to the list. Or maybe a sking resort from the Alps would be high adrenaline. Thailand from my view is not so enertic on sports when I visited it few years ago

  2. Those really look like fun times! Do you know of any great hotels around those areas? Also, Mary, if you are looking for winter sports, you should check out Utah. We do have “The greatest snow on Earth”, you know! We have a ton of people here that go snowboarding in the mountains.
