The 13 Greatest Adventures for 2013

Though the odds have been bucked (there are bold travelers; and old travelers; but no old bold travelers), I’ve been reconnoitering the backs of beyond since the exordium of modern adventure travel, and have written about quite a few. I would imagine I could swing my Bic with the best of them. Nonetheless, I am daunted by AdventureLink, which boasts the world’s largest database of adventure travel trips and outfitters.

So, I combed through this dangerous catalogue, and picked out what I think will be the best adventures for 2013 (and I have personally tested them all, and reported about each on Huffington Post):

13) Borneo (Sarawak and Sabah, Malaysia)

It hosts the highest mountain in SE Asia, Mt. Kinabalu; the largest concentration of wild orangutans in the world; the greatest rainforests on the planet; some of the deepest caves; and of course the ambitious Dayaks, always looking to get a head.
