“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it.” -Mark Jenkins
Normal people like vacations…stress-free, limitless alcoholic drinks, sleeping in, and a pillowy soft bed …
I am not normal. I rarely sleep in. I can’t drink more than 2 -3 drinks usually without conking out.
I prefer to go on “adventures” over vacations. I travel to stretch my own limits, learn, grow, experience local cuisine and find hidden gems one cannot necessarily read about online or experience on a tour. It is also an excellent way to showcase photography skills or in my case, lack thereof. I am learning!
When I travel, I foster an appreciation of both an imperfect, beautiful world-at-large and mornings on my sunny front porch in Georgia. The beauty in travel is in the little things you experience along the way.
