Bros Before…Anything!’ 20 Whacky Things To Do On Your Next ‘Bro-Cation’!!!

There is a destiny that makes us brothers, no one goes his way alone; all that we send into the lives of others,  comes back into our own.’ – Edwin Markham

What do you get when you mix your annoying little sibling with your crazy best friend? You get a BRO! (*fistpump*) He is the only guy who laughs at your break up, pats you hard on the shoulder and says ‘me too man!’ He is the guy you will call when you want to go on an impulse bike ride to the other side of the state. Because you know he wants to go too.

You look at each other and wonder how sometimes, you are not related. He is your partner in crime, and your wingman! If you share the love for travel just like your bro, then here are 20 completely whacky experiences you need to try with him NOW!

Who says we should be scared of big, razor toothed reptiles? In Australia’s Crocosaurus Cove Darwin, you can swim in the aptly named ‘Cage of Death’ that is encased in trustworthy glass, while the 11 ft. predator skulks around you. He is probably wondering why his meal is so well packaged, but that shouldn’t stop you from bobbing helplessly up close to the gigantic crocodile.
