April 2005's cover story, "The Adventures of Your Life: How to Fill All Your Days With Pure Excitement" (read excerpt >> ) mapped out the best trips for each phase of life, from honeymooning to bonding with friends and family. Now we want to know about your trip of a lifetime. Send us your best trip pictures, from all phases of life, and some helpful take-away tips so we can to continue building our online photo album and adventure community.

This fourth edition of the album includes readers who showed us they were real adventurers. Whether it's up in the sky or under the ocean, these intrepid people capture the thrill of the moment. We chose images of stalking lions in Tanzania, hiking through Italy's Cinque Terre, swimming with great white sharks in South Africa, and flying high in a hot air balloon in Egypt. |

Selected images may be published in a future edition of the magazine. Thanks for sharing your amazing photos and adventures!
