I'm planning to take a vacation next year, and I've finally figured out my destination. In celebration of this (as it was a tough choice), I'm making a riddle.
Some of my original options were:
South Africa, Mexico, Australia, Peru, and New Zealand
There is a common theme to each place I wanted to go, and where I am actually going. Can you figure out where I am going?
When you visit, you'll need some respect;
Without it you'll find, misguided you'll get.
I'm known for building towers so high;
They're often known to blend with the sky.
But if you're not careful, then you'll never leave;
If they catch you and hold you, you won't want to breathe.
A gem of the world, of I, you are told;
My nature is, a sight to behold.
Its loud like a cannon, while rolling and roaring;
You trip here will be, anything but boring.
As a bonus, can you figure out what activity or activities I based my trip on?
While you are searching, like a bird I will fly; if you want to find me, then refer to banzai!
I'm located near the tropic of cancer; but I'm small so look hard, you might find the answer.
People will come, from both near and far, most of them hodads, who won't try to carve.
All three hints refer to my activity choices, as does part of the riddle.
