    These are some great sports to try. I’ve done some on this list. I’ve done skiing in Switzerland and really enjoyed it. Had a brilliant time and the instructor were great. I’ve also done some Kayaking and had a brilliant time, got wet LOL. I wouldn’t do hang gliding though, as I’m scared of heights really bad. I’d love to do quad biking though, it sounds fantastic and fun to do.
