26 years, 550 , 000 miles, and 177 countries, but it was the last several thousand miles proved to be bittersweet for this globetrotting couple… This 1 1/2 year trip just tickled their road tripping bones so much they thought, “Why not keep going?”

For instance, there's the Near-Space Flight, which flies guests to a sliver of space in the earth's atmosphere, once reserved exclusively for astronauts. More specifically, the space between the Armstrong limit -- above which requires a pressure suit for humans to survive -- and the Karman line, where the atmosphere meets outer space.

Lift-off time is 4 am, aboard a pod that fits four people. Within an hour, the pod shuttles guests to a height of 22 miles (35 km).

The 12-hour experience includes a Michelin-starred meal in-flight, and two hours of cruising in Near Space.

A trip for four people is priced at $550,000.

And fresh off the PyeongChang Olympics, for adrenaline junkies who are less about heights, more about speed, there's a package that will pair guests with Olympic bobsledding champions.

At the St. Regis Deer Valley hotel in Park City, Utah, guests take a white-knuckle ride with Olympic silver medallists Valerie Fleming and Shauna Rohbock, tearing through 10 turns at speeds of up to 70mph (113km/hr).

The day-long experience costs $3,500, while a stay at a luxury suite is $6,000 a night.
