Adventure Chat #18 - Water Adventures

img_8044.jpg

When I began participating in Twitter chats I loved the amount of interacting and great information I was seeing. I also noticed that most chats were about travel. While I love traveling, I am more of an adventure junkie and enjoy local activities like camping and hiking and the occasional road trip. So, I started my own Twitter chat called #adventurechat on Monday’s at 10 am pst. It’s a fun and informative way for me to learn from everyone else’s adventures. I’ve had more than one person ask me for a blog transcript so here we go. I’ve taken out all retweets and responses that are confusing as well as putting all Q and A’s in order. While the pictures were beautiful I do not have the right to include them here but they are all a part of the full transcript on Travelogx.com. For the 18th chat I went back to my Michigan roots to talk Water Adventures! Here are the questions and transcripts from the chat and a special thank you again to Jens Notroff for jumping in to host this week!

QUESTIONS:

1. What is your favorite type of water adventure?

2. Do you seek out water adventures or do they end up as a wanted or unwanted surprise?

3. What type of water adventure scares you the most? Cave Diving, White Water Rafting, Parasailing?

4. Are your more of a water or land person? 

5. What water adventure is on your bucket list to try?

6. Oceans? Lakes? Rivers? Puddles? What's your preferred water location?

7. Anywhere in particular you'd want to visit to try some water adventures?

8. Photo brag! Share some of your favorite water moments!

@tripcipe Sunny California! Good to be joining #adventurechat again!

@comusetravels Happy Monday Indeed! Tweeting from sunny Redding in northern California #adventurechat

@nikkistewart85 From rainy Glasgow, could probably have a water adventure here! #adventurechat

@GlobalBrunch it was gloomy here all day & now just in time for #adventurechat the sun is coming out!

• @BenOnAdventures I made it! It may be a little bit late but I made it! #AdventureChat

@yourwanderlust Hi @monicagoesshow only just joined! Hope I'm not too late! #adventurechat

@AuroraHolidays Hi everyone, sorry I'm late. Northernmostnprt of Finland joining you :) #adventurechat

@monicagoesshow Alright let’s get this show on the road! Q1. What is your favorite type of water adventure? 

• @nikkistewart85 Q1: Canoeing is my favourite so far, was tempted to try white water rafting in Oz but not brave enough

@VacationSellout A1: We love kayaking & paddle boarding! Both are a great way to get out on the water and enjoy yourself!

• @comusetravels A1: Recently, kayaking! @Whiskeytown Lake. And we'll kayak in B.C. next week! Though I'd love to go submarining too :) #adventurechat

@tripcipe White water rafting is fun and exciting! #adventurechat

@caliparksorg A1. Ocean kayaking #adventurechat

@GlobalBrunch A1 All of them! I love everything connected to water: kayaking, swimming, boat tours, snorkelling - I blame my star sign ;) #adventurechat

• @nikkistewart85 A1 also like surfing but it's really hard #adventurechat

@Flightsdotcom A1: Cliff diving has become a new favorite of ours! #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/Xl7DhKvB3j

@HeyLetsApp A1 White-Water Rafting!!! So exciting... #adventurechat #Travel

• @EllaMallorca A1 Hi everyone! I love swimming in the beautiful beaches of Mallorca, Spain! #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/0x8ernMQaV

@LoversExplorers A1: Scuba, snorkel, kayaking, rafting, cliff jumping & waterfall finding. #adventurechat @monicagoesshow pic.twitter.com/tC81tZKk3n

@GlobalBrunch Love kayaking, but I bet submarining would be one hell of an adventure too :) #adventurechat

@MyClearwater A1) Paddleboarding and kayaking is a great way to explore Clearwater's beautiful waters! #adventurechat

• @EllaMallorca I love cliff jumping! So scary and exhilarating! #adventurechat

@gracebaldwin21 Kayaked in Sydney and had amazing views of the city. loved it. #adventurechat

@BenOnAdventures I've always wanted to scuba dive! But kayaking is a lot of fun! #AdventureChat

• @vagabondslog A1: Ah, torn between #sailing & #kayaking (doing more of the latter lately). pic.twitter.com/QS4MIQ97fB

• @mcnuttsc A1: Besides cruising? :D I'd have to go with kayaing. So fun and peaceful

@gracebaldwin21 definitely kayaking. It's amazing to power your own boat. #adventurechat

@vagabondslog A1: If we also include *under-* water adventures, there's always fun in scuba divingg of course: vagabondslog.com/2015/06/07/aqu… ;-)

@Cruisewriter A1 I love cruising, but also kayaking, snorkeling, sailing and want to try SUP. #adventurechat

• @NomadayTravel A1:#Diving in Indian Ocean #Rafting on the Holy #Ganges river is cool indeed :) #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/wJKS71lxEC

@RooLoves A1 Nothing quite beats snorkeling. I was very nervous but was very worrh it at Great Barrier Reef #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

• @iTraqTag A1: I love leisurely water adventures. My favorite in #ATX is renting a boat from @CapitalCruises #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/T7r80JTzVf

@The_LuckyCouple A1 Our favourite is kayaking to a new islands! #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/g7zOqzTEsS

@AuroraHolidays A1: absolutely diving, then snorkeling and sailing :) #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

• @monicagoesshow Q2. Do you seek out water adventures or do they end up as a wanted or unwanted surprise? #adventurechat

@mcnuttsc A2: I seek them out. Need to prepare for things like keeping my cell phone/camera dry.

@nikkistewart85 A2 always sought after, need to talk myself into doing them #adventurechat

• @caliparksorg A2. Both! And I love having both as a challenge #adventurechat

@Flightsdotcom A2: Definitely seek out water adventures! It's a great way to explore a different side of your favorite cities/countries! #adventurechat

@GlobalBrunch Mallorca really is perfect for a water adventure! #adventurechat

• @VacationSellout A2:It's fun to plan them, but when you go somewhere & find out there are water adventures, it's exciting! #adventurechat @monicagoesshow

@gracebaldwin21 A2: sometimes seek them out, sometimes they just happen. Some of my best beach memories were spontaneous stops on the road!

• @HeyLetsApp A2 The element of surprise is so underrated in #travel. Discovering something unexpected is the point, right? #Adventurechat

• @tripcipe It's always fun to discover hidden and natural water adventures free of crowds. #adventurechat

@LoversExplorers A2:We seek them out! Love water. Minus when John pushed Sarah under a waterfall. #adventurechat @monicagoesshow pic.twitter.com/mHVxLyGIhv

@comusetravels A2: We seek them. Sometimes, it's as simple as gazing at the river. Or having a fresh baptism in the new city of discovery #adventurechat

@LoversExplorers We kayak up to a Falls where you have to portage so that no one's there. Then take a swim breakt!

@GlobalBrunch A2 When ever I travel to destination that is near water I try some sort of water sport/adventure. Gives you a new perspective #adventurechat

@Cruisewriter A2 I seek them out as well, but sometimes, a hike can become a water adventure when it involves stream crossings. #adventurechat

• @MyClearwater A2) In Clearwater, there are plenty of activities & water-sports for vacation-goers seeking water adventures!

@BenOnAdventures sometimes I seek them out and usually they're wanted. #AdventureChat

@RooLoves A2 I had a list of things I wanted to try someday but opportunity decides when they happen #travel

@AuroraHolidays A2: We try to dive always when on holiday. It's so cold here and I don't have my own dry suit :) #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

• @monicagoesshow Q3. What type of water adventure scares you the most? Cave Diving, White Water Rafting, Parasailing?

@nikkistewart85 A3 : a few up there. probably jet skiing or shark cage diving! #adventurechat

• @monicagoesshow HAHA I love how you put jet skiing and shark cage diving in the same category! #adventurechat

@tripcipe Cave Diving! There's nothing like the thrill you get from facing your fears though! #adventurechat

@LoversExplorers A3: Oh! Cave Diving. It seems so easy to get stuck. Other than that I think we'd try most anything.

@mcnuttsc A3: I love the ocean from above but anything inside it makes me uneasy. #sharks #riptide #jellyfish

@gracebaldwin21 A3: I'm going cage diving with sharks in June. That's going to be terrifying.

@BenOnAdventures none! I love em all and embrace the fear! #AdventureChat

@iTraqTag A3: Scared of pretty much anything *under* the water but love most everything *on* the water. #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

• @GlobalBrunch A3 Definitely cliff jumping! I have so much respect for the brave souls that have tried it! (i'm scared of heights) #adventurechat

@VacationSellout A3: Definitely cliff diving! Ah! So scared to take the plunge but I know it will be such an amazing rush! #adventurechat @monicagoesshow

@vagabondslog A3: Never really saw it as being 'scared'. Only means trying something unknown. Hesitating and exciting maybe.

@comusetravels A3: Hmmm. All exhilarating (I haven't done them, I'd love to). I'd say diving - seems to be the most physically challenging #adventurechat

@TripsAgency A3) Cave diving is scary but you have to at least enjoy it once! #adventurechat

@EllaMallorca A3 Cave diving. *chills* #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/Bx4aWYrY6z

@caliparksorg A3. Cave diving - but not so much in a well lit cave - #adventurechat #yoiks

@TripsAgency Cave diving for #adventure seekers #adventurechat twitter.com/EllaMallorca/s…

• @NomadayTravel A3:Tried cave diving-beautiful, scary only if you dive irresponsibly.White water rafting-awesome adrenaline!#adventurechat

@NomadayTravel A3:water sports are scary only when done by irresponsible reckless people #adventurechat always have #respect for #water

@HeyLetsApp A3 #adventurechat parasailing for sure! I like an element of control

@Cruisewriter It's scary to watch the cliff divers like those in Acapulco. #adventurechat

• @RooLoves A3 Cave Diving. Although I did swim through a cave river with eels & it was such fun! #travel #adventurechat

@PasationTravel A3: Cave diving for sure. Love the image though! @monicagoesshow #adventurechat

@AuroraHolidays A3: don't want to be "flying" or inside of the tunnels or caves... #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

@monicagoesshow Q4. Are your more of a water or land person? #adventurechat

@nikkistewart85 A4 I like both and to mix it up, but land is my fave #adventurechat

• @LukeTravels A4) I'm afraid that I'm more of a land person. Seasickness has always been a problem for me.

@ankit1989 A4 Land Person or better say 'Mountain Person' #adventurechat

@vagabondslog A4: I'm not choosing one over the other. Adventure waits where you seek it. ;-)

@monicagoesshow I’m the same way! LOVE hiking and waterfalls and being from Michigan give me a good lake any day! #adventurechat

@caliparksorg A4. More water - I spend most of my time in it, if I can - #adventurechat

@VacationSellout A4: Definitely a water bug when the weather is warm! It feels refreshing and there's so many fun activities

@BlBrTravel A4 I'm more of a water person - love to sail, snorkel, swim and just did my "maiden voyage" scuba dive! #adventurechat

@mcnuttsc A4:Water guy for sure.It's not only relaxing, but being out on the vast ocean makes me realize how small I am

• @tripcipe Hmm....tough choice! We love to hike on land, and end up at a water destination like a waterfall! ;) #adventurechat

@The_LuckyCouple A4 Definitely water people! Thats why Phuket is the perfect place for us! #adventurechat

@Cruisewriter A4 I am equal opportunity and enjoy both land and water activities. #adventurechat

@GlobalBrunch A4 Water, always water! I love looking at it, being in it & the incredible wildlife it has! Fascinating! (oh and mountains) #adventurechat

@MyClearwater A4) Clearwater has extensive beach activities on land & sea including biking trails, fishing, & water-sports! #adventurechat

• @gracebaldwin21 A4: I grew up in the mountains. More of a land/lake person than open water. pic.twitter.com/2aBQzFfULT

@TripsAgency A4) #Land with water in our view Cozumel, Mexico. It's peaceful and calming. #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/D3xE7VbzhC

@Pinkzenjoy I would choose water. Most of our vacations involve beaches islands sea. #adventurechat

@TourLifeDave A4. Land all the way! I like the beach but not going out in the ocean ocean #adventurechat

@Flightsdotcom A4: We're water people all the way! There's so much to do or not to do :) #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/pUmDShFfEf

@GlobalBrunch mountains & water are the perfect combination :) #adventurechat

• @BenOnAdventures land! But love taking water to land spots to explore! #AdventureChat

@NomadayTravel A4:Water person that is sure. But going on land sometimes doesn't harm either ;) #adventurechat

@RooLoves A4 I love to be near water- rivers, canals, ocean, lakes. Can be on dry ground to appreciate it or on it.

• @yourwanderlust A4. Definitely more of a water person. But let's be clear... warm water! #adventurechat

@vagabondslog A4: Really, couldn't say which to prefer. Can I have both please? ;-) pic.twitter.com/893bf4SfYN

@iTraqTag A4: I'm a mix of both: I'm a land person who loves to be staring out at the water. #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/XBN7Hnhuvx

@TourLifeDave A4. Climbing > Diving for me..... Land > Sea #adventurechat

• @NomadayTravel A4:but yeah...even on land still searching for water! #Himalayas #waterfalls @monicagoesshow pic.twitter.com/H4AYyCSOUP

@comusetravels A4: Water. It births a new me every time by gazing into it or submerging myself in it. Land is the ultimate diving board #adventurechat

@LoversExplorers A4: Water! We're constantly trying to find new adventures & lakes to explore #adventurechat @monicagoesshow pic.twitter.com/UfJYUMev6d

@AuroraHolidays A4: water. I could be at the sea all the time. Dreaming about liveaboard holiday... #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

@CruiseNiagara A4. We absolutely #love the water! #niagaracruises #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/G7mR9RfGG8

@monicagoesshow I know we’ve touched on it a bit already but Q5. What water adventure is on your bucket list to try? 

@nikkistewart85 A5 after today's chat white water rafting :D #adventurechat

@TourLifeDave creek walking is fun #adventurechat

@yourwanderlust A5. What water adventure is on your bucket list to try? The Blue Lagoon in Iceland! #adventurechat

@VacationSellout A5: Besides cliff diving, I'd say scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef! Pictures look incredible! #adventurechat @monicagoesshow

• @gracebaldwin21 glacial lakes are fantastic #adventurechat

@The_LuckyCouple A5 Learning to surf (and stay up)! Its always been a dream a dream of mine. #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/yE2I0yeQmE

@vagabondslog A5: More diving. Much more. Really thinking about research diver's certificate. And I honestly need to go sailing again.

@mcnuttsc A5: I might try parasailing, the idea of flying through the air with something soft to land on is appealing

@Flightsdotcom A5: Scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef is on our bucket list. There's so much to explore! #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/ZKGY3N1xQi

@caliparksorg A5.Kiteboarding! I have friends who have taken it up and they love it #adventurechat

@GlobalBrunch A5 Stand Up Paddling looks so cool! Would also love to go diving properly & a multi-day sailing tour!

@yourwanderlust A5. The other one was Galapagos but I went earlier this year. Can it still be on your bucket list if you've been before?? :P #adventurechat

@EllaMallorca Ahhh, surfing! Seems like it would be such a fun sport! Just need strong muscles! #adventurechat

• @BenOnAdventures go to a remote island near Indonesia! #AdventureChat

@RooLoves A5 Shark Cage Diving...in South Africa. Would be scary but amazing (if retain all limbs)! #travel #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

• @nikkistewart85 I'd love to try the paddling too #adventurechat

@yourwanderlust A5 And Cod Hole in the Great Barrier Reef. Last time I was in Far North Queensland (1997) I was too poor for a liveaboard! #adventurechat

@BlBrTravel A5 Going to Antarctica with @QuarkExpedition to see humpback whales and penguins! #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/HhvxAIDW6U

@gracebaldwin21 I want to try yoga on a SUP. I've seen people do it and it looks HARD! #adventurechat

@nikkistewart85 no better thrill than skydiving #adventurechat

@monicagoesshow You’ve done skydiving but are afraid of jet skiing?!? #adventurechat

• @yourwanderlust Oh me too! Cage diving's also on my list. Seems I have too long of a list... #adventurechat

@LoversExplorers A5: Surfing (we tried on kayaks but it just wasn't the same) & cage diving-gotta conquer those fears

@Pinkzenjoy All those surfing movies I watch. Would love to try someday but getting too old now. 😁 #adventurechat

• @BlBrTravel I know! I think @QuarkExpedition really combines all the elements for a wonderful, safe, educational trip! #adventurechat

@BlBrTravel That's on mine too but I will probably just snorkel - my ears didn't like scuba diving! #adventurechat

@NomadayTravel A5:hot springs in Iceland, diving in Komodo National Park, under ice diving #adventurechat

@comusetravels A5: Water dreams = surfing, scuba, & doing an Ironman in Cozumel, Ecuador or a triathlon in the Galapagos or the Himalayas #adventurechat

• @NomadayTravel A5:if someone is searching for inspiration -bathing in holy Ganges recommended

@Cruisewriter A5 SUP is on my list - water conditions caused cancellations of previous attempts. #adventurechat

• @AuroraHolidays A5: liveaboard holiday. The Red sea, Maledives, Thailand... #adventurechat twitter.com/monicagoesshow…

@monicagoesshow Q6. Oceans? Lakes? Rivers? Puddles? What's your preferred water location? #adventurechat

@monicagoesshow I am a @PureMichigan girl so give me a great lake any day! #adventurechat

@nikkistewart85 A6 I love a good lake or a gorge. Always wanted to visit Wisconsin! #adventurechat

@VacationSellout A6: Grew up boating on the Chain O Lakes and have a deep love for lakes! Also love the ocean, though!

@BlBrTravel A6 I'm very excited to be going on a Douro River cruise in Portugal with @VikingRiver next month so, rivers! #adventurechat

@BenOnAdventures All!! A good mix is great. #AdventureChat

@vagabondslog A6: While open sea can be definitely more 'adventurous' (wind & waves), I enjoy exploring rivers when it comes to kayaking.

• @LoversExplorers A6:We fall in love w/the ocean, but love playing in lakes since they're closer & can be more forgiving. Rivers-for speed! #adventurechat

@comusetravels I grew up near Chicago, so Lake Michigan was the sea-like fixture in our weekend trips! #adventurechat

@BlBrTravel I will - I lived in Boston for a long time but a couple years in Florida have made me a sissy! #adventurechat

• @LoversExplorers Under ice diving sounds incredible! Pictures? #adventurechat @NomadayTravel @monicagoesshow

@nikkistewart85 you are so lucky to live there. I also love lochs :) #adventurechat

@Flightsdotcom A6: Do waterfalls count? #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/nZadK8HXVS

@The_LuckyCouple A6 Lakes and oceans. #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/qGMPCxdK4r

@Cruisewriter A6 - I like to mix it up. #adventurechat

@SGSwritereditor A6: I carry a #duck so I must vote for ponds. #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/xXFRCyWAXY

@GlobalBrunch A6 This one's hard! I'd have to say the ocean, but lakes are a very close second! #adventurechat

• @vagabondslog Dunno, more to discover, I guess (the sea's rather ... monotonous). #adventurechat pic.twitter.com/2mw0JfL4q3

@VacationSellout Any type of water is great! So much adventure to be done in lakes and oceans! #adventurechat
