2018 is going to be a great year, with an abundance of things to do, sights to see and places to be! Here is a list of things to partake in or be on the lookout for:
1) FIFA World Cup
2018’s World Cup Tournament will be the 21st FIFA World Cup. This is a quadrennial and international soccer tournament, and is scheduled to take place in Russia from June 14th to July 15th.
2) Winter Olympics
The Olympic Winter Games is an international sporting event that takes place once every four years. With the last event held in Russia in 2014, South Korea will be hosting the Games this February in Pyeongchang.
3) A Royal Wedding
Prince Harry recently proposed to American beauty Meghan Markle. The pair are set to be married on May 19th, 2018, and you can be sure that the festivities will be splashed all over your Snapchat, FaceBook and Instagram accounts.
4) Commercial Flights to Antarctica Will Officially Start Flying for the First Time Ever
Prior to 2018, people could only travel to Antarctica via special arrangements such as charter flights or ships. Now, tourists will be able to fly to Antarctica from Argentina on a regular basis. The flights will depart at least once a week, and will land on Seymour Island. Commercial flights previously avoided flying over Antarctica because Federal Aviation Administration rules stated that aircrafts must always be within an hour of an airport to land in case of an emergency. Flying over Antarctica was considered too risky and dangerous.
5) A New Jurassic World Movie is Being Released
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the next film in the sequel trilogy and part of the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park series, will hit theatres in June. Based on the success of the past movies, we know this one will also be amazing.
6) Eminem May Go On Tour
With the recent release of Eminem’s newest album (Revival), there is a high likelihood that the famous rapper will go on tour in 2018. His last tour took place in 2014, and who knows when he will release another album (if ever) again!
7) Bitcoin Boom?
A few years ago, a bitcoin was practically worthless. The digital currency made headlines in 2017 when it was determined that one unit of the digital coin was reaching close to the $20,000 mark. Start investing! With technological innovation on the rise, the value of Bitcoins will probably only increase.
