What is the opposite of a Bucket List? A “Hell, No” List?
There are not too many places I wouldn’t venture out to, given the funds and the right traveling companion. Scrolling through my twitter feed every morning I see photos and posts of lots of faraway, exotic locales, some/most elicit a positive reaction, others not so much, and then there are the oh, hell no locations.
Take the Mount Hua in China. It’s the world’s most dangerous hiking trail leading to a Tea House. Parts of the trail are simply planks of wood somehow attached to the side of the mountain with chains to hold on to – and it’s a two way path. What happens if you are halfway across and you become paralyzed in fear? It’s mindboggling. I really don’t like tea that much.*
Luckily the world is huge and there are plenty of safe, less adventurous places.
* I must admit I had to watch more than one YouTube video of hikers on the trail. It’s like a train wreck.
