New Things to Try

A new year invites new opportunities to try different things, and since February is only the second month, you’ve got plenty of time to get out and do something you’ve never done before. In this week’s Crossings at Irving Blog, we’ve got a few suggestions of new things you should try before the year is through. If you happen to have tried everything on our list, don’t worry, there will always be new things to try!


If you’re going to try something new, why not try something new at a place with warm weather and clear water? Surfing is a pastime for many people who live near the ocean and those who do it, love it. Use this desire to try something new as an excuse to travel to a surfing haven like Hawaii or even Australia. If you do get to try it, remember that even though it looks easy in the movies, surfing is a difficult sport to pick up and is a grueling exercise.

Bungee Jumping

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, you won’t have to look further than bungee jumping for your thrills. Strapping a bungee to your feet and jumping off a bridge is a surefire way of getting the adrenaline pumping. It may be pretty scary, but it’s definitely an experience worth trying once! We suggest getting a group of friends to go with you so they can hype you up for free falling.

New Food

Some people are adventurous when it comes to activities, not hesitating when it comes to skydiving or bungee jumping, but are reluctant to try new cuisines. If you aren’t an adventurous eater, we suggest trying to be this year. There are so many cuisines and foods inspired by the various cultures around the world that are worth eating! Open your mind and expand your palate this year, you won’t be disappointed!

You may not find a place to surf here in Irving, TX, but we recommend getting out of your apartment to try these new things this year!
