  • Climb Mount Everest or ski down the Swiss Alps?
  • Watch movies alone for the rest of your life or eat alone for the rest of your life?
  • Be forgotten by your travel guide in the Sahara Desert or be forgotten by your scuba instructor in the middle of the ocean?
  • Run a marathon in the Amazon Jungle or swim in the Everglades?
  • Teleport (like in Star Trek) to places you know and feel safe in or teleport to strange new worlds for the excitement of a new discovery?
  • Travel back in time and change history or travel forward in time and come back to the present to influence the future?
  • Live in a forest alone with nothing other than your survival instinct or live homeless in the city?
  • Cross the ocean alone on a sailboat or cross the Alps alone on skis?
