A helicopter tour takes your adventure trip to whole new heights – literally and figuratively. It not only gives you a bird’s eye view of the majestic scenery below. It also allows you to see more of the lay of the land that you would otherwise miss when you keep your feet on the ground.

If you are thinking of giving aerial tours a try, here are some of the world’s best helicopter adventure trips you should add to your list.
Grand Canyon, USA

To see it is a sublime experience many of which get to experience by taking on the challenging kayak route along the coast. Some adventurous souls hike on trails with diverse and often difficult terrain. But if you want to see more of the stunning Nā Pali Coast, a helicopter view gives you a chance to see more of its jewels – from The Cliffs at Kalalau Valley and the waterfalls at Hanakoa among many other breathtaking sights.

Let’s face it.
There are lots of pros and cons of traveling for work, with the cons sometimes outweighing the pros. But you know what? It shouldn’t stop you from going on a vacation trip with your family. And most of all, it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a vacation trip with your family.
Here are some tips and ideas when going on a vacation trip with your family, even if you’re working:
For Remote Workers: Finish half of your work before your day officially starts. Work what you can in the middle of your day/the day. Finish what’s left of your work before the day officially ends.
For Fixed-Scheduled Workers: Work ahead of time before the day officially ends (a day before going on a vacation trip with your family). The only thing left to do before your day starts is to send in your work (the day when you go on a vacation trip with your family). Repeat until no longer needed.
The key here is time management. This way, you’ll have more than enough time to spend with your family as you roam around to see for yourselves the wonders of a place and experience for yourselves the miracles of a place.
Go to places where you can easily pull out your laptop anytime, as well as your mobile devices anywhere.
Unless your family is camping on a mountain peak or exploring unfamiliar places, you are pretty much free to pull out your laptop anytime. Unless your family is hiking in a deep forest or climbing giant rocks, you are even pretty much free to use your mobile device anywhere.

The summer months are filled with exciting opportunities for fun, adventures, and relaxation. There are limitless possibilities on how you can make the most of your time. It may even be a great opportunity to explore and learn new things, make some lifestyle changes, or pursue the things you have not had the time to do before. Whether you are seeking growth on a personal or professional level, you can make your summer more fruitful and enjoyable.
Think of something that you want to focus on. Take the time to think of something that you want to focus on. Do you want to broaden your horizon? Do you want to travel or volunteer or do both at the same time? Do you want to upgrade your skills or learn new ones? Summer is a good time to pursue the things that nurtures you mentally, physically, emotionally, or spiritually. If you have been spending the previous months barely maintaining a work-life balance, planning an inspiring summer that involves more time with your family and yourself may be a good idea.
Set a goal. Create a goal that you can realistically work on during the summer. You can choose to align this mini-goal to your long-term goals. Or you can come up with something that may help you achieve personal or work-related goals.
Do something you have not done before. Another great way to plan a great summer is to do something new or out of character. This can be a good opportunity to stretch yourself and discover untapped abilities. Make room for adventure. Sign up for a cooking class or a flying lesson. Do something you have not done before. Or you can do something that you would not normally do.
Go on a vacation. Plan your perfect summer by carving out some time for a vacation. Summer seems incomplete without spending some of your time vacationing either at home or some destination you want to visit. Use your vacation to get your mind off work, focus on yourself and your loved ones, pursue the things you love, and generally have a great time.
