Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Attend Hare Krisna Color Festival
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/attend_hare_krisna_color_festival

This festival represents the passing of winter into spring. Traditionally, colored powder or water is thrown to signify the joy and colors of spring arriving. This festival is observed in countries with a large Hindu population like Suriname, Trinidad, the United Kingdom, India and Nepal.   

The International Society for Krishna Conciousness (ISKCON) is a modern movement within this tradition. It was founded by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977), a devotee of Krishna, upon his arrival to America from India in 1965.

ISKCON gained further publicity (and financial support) through the interest of the Beatle George Harrison. The first Hare Krishna commune was established by Prabhupada as “New Vrindavan” in West Virginia in 1968.

In India, Holi announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. The festival breathes an atmosphere of social merriment. People bury their hatchets with a warm embrace and throw their worries to the wind. 
People in small groups are seen singing, dancing and throwing colors on each other.

Bucket List - Cliff Jumping
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/cliff_jump

Before doing a cliff jump, keep in mind that pressure can be a huge issue and take care of your ears by using a few drops of olive oil or silicone.    It is said that most of the professional cliff divers (in fact, 98% ) dive feet first, mainly because diving head first is very dangerous.

Cliff divers stare death in the face before every dive. Each leap is carefully calculated but still poses the threat of serious injury or even death. The danger associated with the sport has even earned it the nickname tombstoning.

The daredevil act dates back to 1770, when King Kahekili, the last king of Maui, leapt from Kaunolu, a 63ft. cliff and entered the water below without causing a splash, the king earned the nickname “birdman.” Later, he made his warriors jump from cliffs to prove their courage and loyalty.

Bucket List - Go Whale Watching
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/whale_watch

Whale watching is the practice of observing whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Whales are watched most commonly for recreation but the activity can also serve scientific or educational purposes.  Some cultures see whales as divine beings, such as in some places in Ghana and the Vietnamese, who occasionally hold funerals for beached whales.

Humpback whales only eat in summer, feeding off their fat reserves during the winter.  The Blue Whale is the largest known mammal that has ever lived, with a length of up to 105 ft long and weight of 150 tons. That’s the weight equivalent of 150 small cars!

Bucket List - See the Aurora Borealis
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/see_the_aurora_borealis

A natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, usually near the northern or southern magnetic pole.

The lights also produce a strange sound for those close enough to hear, which has been described as similar to the sound of applause. In the southern latitudes, there is a similar phenomenon, called the “aurora australis”.

Their official name is the “aurora borealis.” “Aurora” comes from the Roman goddess associated with the dawn; “borealis” is derived from from the Greek word for the north wind, “boreas”.

Horseback riding is the sport of sitting on the back of a horse while controlling its movements.  Arabian horses have one less rib, one less lumbar bone, and one or two fewer tail vertebrae than other horses.

A horse typically sleeps two and half to three hours a day.  October 13, 1984 a couple years of Emile Brager and Marie Roesle embarked on the longest race-horse to traverse the Americas from Cabode de Hornos to Alaska-is a trifle 25.000 km! This unusual adventure ended in Faibanks, after 4 years in September 1988.

Tabulaa - Bucket List - Watch Baby Sea Turtles Hatch

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/watch_baby_turtles_hatch

Male and female turtles mate in the water, and the males return to deep sea to feed. For several weeks, female sea turtles alternate between mating in the water and laying their eggs on land. Before laying her eggs, a female turtle will dig a hole in the sand with her hind flippers. Females lay their eggs, often between 50 and 200 at a time.  She lays her eggs in the hole in the sand and then she returns to the ocean. About two months pass for the eggs to incubate under the sand. Afterwards, the eggs hatch, generally at night to avoid predation, and the hatchlings crawl to the water. 

A sea turtle’s gender is determined by the temperature in the nest.  Amazingly, females return to the same beach where they were born to lay their eggs, even though it may be 30 years later and the appearance of the beach may have greatly changed. 

Bucket List - Snowkiting
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/go_snowkiting

Snowkiting or Kite boarding is an outdoor winter sport where people use kite power to glide on snow or ice. The sport is similar to kitesurfing, but with the footwear used in snowboarding or skiing.  Snowkiting is one of the fastest growing extreme snowsports in the world.

In 1972, Dieter Strasilla and his brother Udo, began parachute-skiing and later perfected a system using self made paragliders and a ball-socket swivel, allowing people to kitesail upwind or uphill and also to take off into the air at will.

Bucket List - Ice Fishing

https://tabulaa.com/vitae/ice_fish

Ice fishing is the practice of fishing through holes in the ice on a lake or river.  Did you know the current world’s largest ice fishing contest has over 15,000 anglers?  That’s right…It’s held in the month of January on Gull Lake, north of Brainerd, Minnesota each year.  They actually drill over 20,000 holes for the event! 

The hole for ice fishing should be no more than 12 inches or 30.5 cm, to keep the ice near where you stand or sit as solid and stable as possible.  This also helps prevent a person falling all the way through in an accident.  Ice does not freeze to a uniform thickness on lakes.  The speed, temperature and source of water currents from rivers cause variations.  Snow cover on the surface can affect the stability of ice.  Air currents can cause erosion of the surface.

Bucket List - Swim with Sea Turtles
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/swim_with_sea_turtles

Sea turtles are large marine turtles with very large flippers and they usually live in tropical and subtropical oceans.  Sea turtles’ size varies greatly, depending upon species — from the small Kemp’s ridley, which weighs between 80–100 pounds, to the enormous leatherback, which can weigh more than 1,000 pounds.

From leatherbacks to loggerheads, six of the seven species of sea turtles are threatened or endangered at the hand of humans.  Each species relies on a different diet: greens eat sea grasses; leatherbacks feed on jellyfish and soft-bodied animals; loggerheads eat heavy-shelled animals such as crabs and clams; hawksbills rely on sponges and other invertebrates; and the Kemps ridley prefers crabs.

Tabulaa:  Bucket List - Go Tree Tent Camping
https://tabulaa.com/vitae/go_tent_tree_camping

The Tentsile Tree Tents were conceived as a treehouse that you can take with you anywhere.  They offer an incredible way for you and your friends to experience the great outdoors in style, comfort, unrestricted by ground conditions and with increased separation from wetness, bugs and other creepies. 

Located in Pfronten, Bavaria in Germany, Waldseilgarten is an adventure mountain resort that offers guests a thrilling night in the wilderness. Nestled at the top of a mountain summit, daring guests can spend the night hanging off the tree tops, suspended over a cliff face, or within a hand built igloo.

 Like tree houses, a tree tent can be accessed via a rope ladder.  The portable nature of this type of shelter provides for more versatile location choice than a conventional tree house or a camping tent.
