The stages of my life in which some injury or physical problem has caused me to not play sports or travel, I remember them as the saddest. Fortunately, there have not been many. I think so much sport as travel contribute to happiness and well-being, both physical and psychological, of the human being.
Therefore, when you have the possibility to combine both, the mix is always positive. There are fans and practitioners of some sports whose tests take place all over the planet. Here I leave a small list, totally personal, of which I consider that more things can contribute to a traveler-athlete.
Mountaineering and hiking
The Franz Joseph Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand
The great mountaineers cross the five continents - or six, if we count the huge blocks of ice that crown in Antarctica - in search of new challenges and pure nature. The Ochomiles are in the Asian trekking Everest but other peaks - such as the Aconcagua in South America or the African Kilimanjaro - also enjoy a popularity without borders. In Europe we have Mont Blanc, the Carpathians or, without going any further, the Pyrenees.
You don't have to be an expert with great technical and physical preparation. You can load your mountain equipment and explore the world looking for those routes and paths that time, wind and rain have been drilling through the rugged surfaces of the Earth.
