For most normal folk, an uninterrupted two-week vacation is the highlight of their year. We work hard five days a week just so we can earn some money to go on a modest vacation to a destination that satisfies most of our desires. Key word - most.
When it comes to celebrity life, however, there are endless possibilities for everything your heart and mind desires. As such, your every desire is fulfilled. What makes this possible is money. It isn’t an issue which most normal folk face on a daily basis. The only limitation is one’s creativity and imagination. When celebrities are ready for a big release, to let their hair down and push beyond their comfort zone, they go hard and they embark on extreme adventures.
The world is literally their oyster; possibilities endless. Celebrities like the Kardashians can afford to spend $25,000 to $50,000 on individual villas in Bora Bora. Athletes like Dallas Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo can afford to gather dozens of his closest friends and family members for a weekend at an adventure destination in the middle of a national park in West Virginia. Celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio can afford to embark on a island-wide tour of the Galapagos in Ecuador.
We, on the other hand, must dream. Or we can save our money for 20 years to afford one trip of a lifetime! Here are the 10 Places Celebrities Visit For Amazing Vacation Adventures
