18 unique travel experiences for the well traveled

So you think you've been everywhere and done everything? Is their something missing when you travel these days? Is the sense of adventure gone? Never fear, because the Times Online has compiled an interesting list of 18 unique travel experiences that are designed to give us a special experience on our getaways.

The suggestions on the list run the gamut from adventurous to decadent to down right surreal. For instance, if you're headed to southern Africa, then you might want to stay with the bushmen of the Kalahari Desert, where you'll have the opportunity to go on an initiation hunt and spend the night in their village. If that seems like you might be roughing it a bit too much, than perhaps you'd prefer to spend the night on a private island and go sailing off the coast of Croatia. How about taking an exclusive tour of Nefertari's Tomb in Egypt, where you'll be one of just 20 visitors in the soon to be closed monument. Or, how about the workout of a lifetime when you'll be training with the the toughest rugby team on the planet, New Zealand's All Blacks, , for one very intense week.

Each of the travel experiences comes with a good description of what you can expect on your unique adventure. A link is included to the travel company that is offering the trip, along with expected prices, in this case listed in pounds. But be warned, these one-of-a-kind experiences don't come cheap, but how do you put a price tag on this kind of excitement?
