Lost your passion, forgotten your dreams and feeling dragged down by the monotony of life? It’s time you regained the wanderlust in your heart and explored the world with a fresh pair of eyes.
Words: Efi Hafizah Hamzah
Seeing that the time for new resolutions is a mere glint away, throw caution to the wind and embark on that adventure you’ve always wanted to experience. It may be something exciting, eye-opening or, just quiet and calming. But this is your dream, and you alone decide how you want the story to unfold. Time to make that dream come true!
SEE THE PYRAMIDS
Did you know that the great pyramids of Egypt now stand a full three miles south of the spot where they were originally built? That’s how much the earth’s surface has shifted in the last 4,500 years.
This is but one of thousands of facts about the mystical pyramids; and to see it for real would truly be a magical experience. Here’s another fact to tickle your pyramid-sighting fancies: The Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt, constructed around 2,500 BC, remained the tallest building in the world until the Eiffel Tower was erected in 1889.
Seeing one of the world’s seven wonders is definitely worth the journey.

CROSS COUNTRY MOTORCYCLE RIDING
That’s right! Make your own Motorcycle Diaries. It’s one of those things that look hard to do… but isn’t necessarily. All it takes is the gumption to do it right. While you need to determine where in the world you want to start and end your ride, it’d be wise to first get a motorbike license. The preparation for the big trip would include determining if the route is on proper streets, dirt paths or both, and knowing possible climate changes within the routes you’re taking. Yes, this dream may be tedious to achieve, but certainly not impossible. The type of motorbike you choose is of course, the most important. And there is such a thing as a ‘crotch rocket’! It’s a sport bike that’s useful on dirt paths.
