Ready to sign up for your very own Experience? Allow us to make a few suggestions.
JUGGLE FIRE IN MIAMI ($250)
Christian Neira, host of the appropriately named Pyro Experience, gives hands-on training with fire props such as a buugeng and a dragon staff—right next to the Atlantic Ocean, in case you accidentally set yourself ablaze.
BREAK-DANCE IN PARIS ($81)
Be the guy who comes back from Paris and tells his friends, “Skipped the Eiffel Tower, but I got into an epic break-dancing battle.” Matthieu and Tony will teach you French break-dancing moves, which we’re hoping include le pop et lock.
GET DAY-DRUNK IN SEATTLE ($60)
Host Shelley Buchanan runs a blog called the Drunken Tomato and has published several books about regional bloody mary variations. She’ll take you on a walking tour to three different bloody-mary-centric bars, where you fill out score sheets, compare notes and get smashed.
BECOME A SAMURAI IN TOKYO ($445)
Tetsuro Shimaguchi, who performed in and choreographed samurai fight scenes for Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 1, invites you into his dojo to “learn the way of a traditional warrior”—or just look awesome while swinging a blade.
GO FISH IN BARCELONA ($151)
Here’s a chance to live out your Deadliest Catch fantasies. Spend a day fishing on the Mediterranean with a crew of third-generation Catalan fishermen, who will also entertain you with “sea legends.”
