We can see some young people or children take part in reality show or sport. A 16-year-old Australian girl just finished her round-the-world sail. Jessica Watson became the youngest person to sail around the globe solo, nonstop and unassisted when she cruised into Sydney Harbour in her pink, 34-foot (10-meter) yacht to a rock star welcome of thousands. She successfully maneuvered her boat through raging storms, 40-foot (12-meter) waves and seven knockdowns during the 23,000 nautical mile journey that critics thought she wouldn't survive. It is amazing. Do you have some adventure dream?

It is amazing that Jessica Watson, a sixteen year old, sailed around the world solo. It must not have been a lot of fun to do sailing non-stop. Part of the joy of traveling is to stop off in different places. I think she did fantastically well to ride 40 foot waves and survive. She must have enjoyed a warm reception coming home into beautiful Sydney Harbor on her pink yacht. I wonder how confident her parents were when she set off. Wow! I have had some exciting adventures. I have been para sailing in Fiji and Australia. I enjoyed snorkeling with black tipped sharks in French Polynesia. I liked snorkeling with nurse sharks and sting rays in Belize. I have climbed Mayan ruins and been on an exciting cave adventure. I have climbed four mountains. I have traveled around the world by plane.
