A friend of ours recently embarked on a two-month long exchange in Europe, namely Russia and Siberia (yes, that's right, Siberia). We made a list of 100 dares for her, to be sure that she made the most of her trip. Nearly the 100 mark, we started struggling to think of anything innovative and interesting, so we tried handy Google. Alas, there wasn't an already-existing list! And that brings us here.
Dear readers, the following is a list of dares - some funny, some silly, a couple possibly dangerous - for you to do this summer. You can pick a month, a week, or the entire summer to complete them whether you travel to Europe, somewhere exotic, or are just staying home. And if you are staying home, we totally encourage you to play tourist in your own city. It's fun, promise! Carry around a camera and don't be afraid to look silly!
