A sense of adventure is something many of us either feel like we have or we don’t. No one sits on middle ground here; we are adventurous or we are not. Those people that cliff dive…those people are adventurous. Those people that surf in forty-foot waves…those people are adventurous. Adventure is something we too often reserve for associations with extreme sports and life-threatening situations.
I, however, consider adventure to be a word synonymous with exploration. And everyone should have a sense of adventure in their life.
Cooking a delicious new Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake recipe, discovering a new hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant, strolling along a shimmering new stretch of ocean, drinking the smoothest French press coffee at a new shop, doing yoga outside while watching the sun sink into the ocean, navigating the steps of the Viennese Waltz…these are all a few experiences I’ve had lately that I would classify as a new adventure. Trying something new; actively seeking out fresh sensations.
Life is all about stringing these little adventures together. These moments are the snapshots we remember as our general timeline grows hazy. Optimizing the number of these adventures in every area of our lives is my goal. The purpose of this blog is to give some practical and down-to-earth advice on adding a bit of adventure into your everyday life. The areas may include dining, date ideas, food and drink recipes, trip reviews, and fitness.
