Are there certain things that absolutely EVERYONE on the planet should do at least once during their lives?

Hmmm, that’s a tough one…

But these AskReddit users sure seem to think so!

So let’s see what they had to say about this.

1. In the middle of the sea.

“The night sky in the middle of the Atlantic with nothing around for 1,000 miles and more is the nicest thing I ever saw and even after seeing it for 3 weeks it was always a blessing to see it every day.

Also I feel like a sunrise just hits differently there.”

2. In awe.

“I was 28 the first time I saw the ocean. It was one of those things I had to do before I d**.

When we got there I was just in awe. It was so much different in person.

Knowing that’s there’s millions of creatures, that this ocean connects to a whole other continent on the other side. It was almost overwhelming.”

3. Financial freedom.

“The absence of financial stress.

The impact it has on every part of your well-being is astonishing.”

4. It’s good for you!

“Another culture.

And I don’t mean as a tourist where you have all the comforts of home.

To fully absorb and immerse yourself in the lives of that culture. To eat their foods, drink their drinks, and do as they do.”

5. Out in the wild.

“Go camping.

Spend some time in the wilderness with no electronics, no demands and (hopefully) no stress; just detach from the modern world for a short while and enjoy the return to nature.”

6. Security.

“Contentment and security.

Not necessarily full happiness, but satisfaction in your own life, and safety within it.

Something that a great many of us don’t actually have.”

7. True love.

“Being in love with someone who loves you back.

It’s crazy to think that I may never have that. I’ve loved and been loved, but not on a deep and mutual level and I can’t help but feel envious of my married friends but I’m sure some of them say the same thing about being single.

One of life’s greatest misses (cue single tear rolling down cheek).”

8. Good times.

“The energy of a concert.

Tens of thousands of people excited, vibing in unison and just so fu**ing happy to be alive.

I’ve been to a couple of concert just to experience that vibe.”

9. You gotta bounce back.

“Real, true failure.

How they recover and learn from it (or don’t) is the character they bring forward.”

10. Livin’ it up.

“Business class flight.

I was lucky enough to be upgraded for free on my recent flight between London and Toronto…

I don’t think I can actually go back to flying economy again.”

11. Life is hard enough…

“Temporarily dealing with a disability of some sort to have compassion on those who have them full time.

Life is difficult enough. Try it with handicap.”

12. If you dare…

“A heavy hallucinogen at least once.

You learn a lot about yourself and get a new perspective on the world.”

13. You’re lucky.

“Being in a poor part of a third world country.

We have all seen poverty on TV, but it is a very different thing when you are standing in the middle of it.

You then realise how lucky you are.”

What do you think everyone should try once?
