I am not a particularly religious person, but it is still a huge part of many people lives. And if you are not religious but want to explore more or gain better knowledge of something that billions of people all over the globe experience, perhaps a religious related challenge is for you. Here are some:

There are many, but here is a list of some of the most famous ones. Obviously, you dont have to go to the site within 30 days, just plan the trip.
