Drum roll for ---
P – Parasailing in Kota Kinabalu (Sabah)
Parasailing is a breathtaking and thoroughly enjoyable adventure that is better experienced in the summer. I had my first stint of this exhilarating human kite -suspended- in- the -air experience circling around Sapi Island while enjoying the spectacular view of the city of Kota Kinabalu and the other islands of Manukan,Mamutik, Gaya and Siulog. It was unparalleled fun!!
Q – Quacking Water Fun In Malaysia
Ok, maybe I'm pushing it with this one – but I couldn't think of any summer activity beginning with Q other than Quidditch which I haven't tried yet! Well, ducks quack and so were we, while in Sunway Lagoon located at Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. With its Water Park there were so many options to just swim like ducks or challenge ourselves to dive in the wild Waters of Africa raising our heart rate and toning our muscles creating noise which sounded like ducks Quack Quack Quack.
R-Rock Climbing in Colorado
S- Spelunking in Sagada
Known as Spelunking in the United States, potholing in United Kingdom or simply going caving among us Pinoys could never be wrong when you do it in Sumaging Cave in Sagada (Philippines). Yes! I described my spelunking experience in Sumaging Cave as involving more than two hours of grueling, exhausting and slippery walk, butt aching, wall climbing all under a very cold temperature. Yet, it is to date one summer adventure that I have already done twice and still wanting to do it again and again and again. All the hardships going though a dark, muddy and slippery rocks descent were all worth it seeing and feeling the smooth limestones and calcium formations called pigpen, elephant heads, the Queen, turtle head, the king, the chocolate cake and the curtain. And of course, if you aren't scaredy cat like me (who is scared of cold water!) then you can get a dip inside the cave's swimming pool.
T- TannforsenWaterfalls Side Trip
Tannforsen Waterfalls in Are, Sweden is the biggest waterfalls in Northern Europe with its more than 30 meters height. In the summertime, about 700 cubic meters of water is hurled over a sheer drop of 38 meters making that roar, which is the reason for being nicknamed the Niagara Falls of Sweden. Visiting this waterfalls during our summer road trip is one of the best side trips I ever had!
