People often ask me where the heck I find the unbelievable extreme adventures. People also often ask if I’ve completely lost my mind because I participate in these adventures. But I’m not the only adrenaline junkie out there nor am I the only person who prefers experiences to things. I recently partnered with Cloud 9 Living, an experience gift company that offers unique and memorable experiences as gifts, to test out one of their adventure experiences and the processing of booking an adventure. From searching their endless list of adventures to actually participating, the entire process was fun and exciting. Why do I choose Cloud 9 Living? It’s a starting spot filled with ideas for adventure and activities around the country. It’s simple to use and secure and it works well as a suggestion for others looking to find the perfect gift. Here’s what Cloud 9 Living looks like from start to finish.
Cloud 9 Living Review
Choosing a Cloud 9 Living experience couldn’t be easier. You can browse through experiences based on location and category. If you’re just looking for inspiration, you can choose all categories. I usually use this option when creating my yearly bucket list. This year, I chose flying in a T-6 Warbird, flying in a hot air balloon, hang gliding, off-roading in a dune buggy, and PADI certification. I may not do all of these adventures with Cloud 9 Living, but it was certainly the ideal starting point for inspiration.
When it’s time to purchase your experience, you just add it to your cart and proceed to the check out. It makes for an excellent gift as well so you can include a gift message at check out. All purchases can be returned within 30 days of purchase, free of charge. The certificate can also be exchanged for another one at any time as well. I love this option because my husband and I enjoy giving experience gifts but I don’t always know which one would be his absolute favorite. Some days, we talk about wanting to drive a dragster more than anything while other days we talk about flying planes. There are so many unbelievable options available in this world that we sometimes forget all of the possibilities. Cloud 9 Living has tons of them all in the same location and if you pick wrong, you can change your mind at a later date. No need to re-gifting.
Receiving your gift is when your dreams turn into reality. You just open your gift to redeem your certificate. Select two possible dates and your location and you’re on your way.
Once you book your experience, you will receive a booking confirmation. It includes all of the information that you need including date, time, location, contact information, and essential experience information.
Enjoying the Experience
For my experience this time, I chose the T-6 Warbird flight with Aviator Flight Training. I climbed into the cockpit of the historical North American T-6 Texan Warbird and headed for the skies. I didn’t need to worry about money or booking concerns because it was all handled beforehand.
The Cloud 9 Living Oath
I solemnly swear to give gifts that last a lifetime.
I vow to make dust, not collect it.
I promise to give memories, not memorabilia.
I give big smiles, not big piles.
Does it get any more fitting?
I live for travel and adventure. The memories I made while flying in a Warbird today will stay with me forever and I have the video to prove it in case I wonder if it was all a dream. I don’t just use Cloud 9 Living as a gift to others; I use it as a gift to myself and place where I can go to dream, explore, and discover the possibilities.
