Why do I adventure?
Why should you adventure?
This book I’m reading “The Adventure Tourist: Being, Knowing, Becoming” shares something important:
“Living these moments [of adventure] whilst being corporeally and sensually immersed in the environment, we have the opportunity to simply be: to (re)connect with the self, with nature, with a place, and with time.
In finding ourselves amid the dynamic interplay between places, occurrences, elements, affects and emotional states, we can better understand who and how we are in this world, and what these experiences mean and help us to become. For this reason, we thus suggest, to be embodied in places of adventure almost always means to develop, to learn, and KNOW.”
In other words…ADVENTURE tests us, tests our assumptions, get us out of our routines, away from our boxes, removes the status quo, and invites us to radically BE with OURSELVES in new and thrilling ways.
I am SO HERE FOR IT.
How about you? 😁
