How Adventurous Are You?


I have adventure on my mind. I have been wondering how to blog it or what to say, but nothing sticks, so I am just going to tap away at the keys and let my fingers do the talking.
What is an adventure? I have to go look it up so we don't lose the meaning of the word in this discussion! Before then though, off the top of my head, I say an adventure is something (usually risky) that your heart and soul longs to do in your lifetime; something of a dare, and which may not necessarily meet any one's approval!! Oops!
The dictionary defines adventure as: a chance, a risk, a danger, something you do, the outcome of which you do not know. Hmmm, sounds really serious, doesn't it??

Anyways, I guess that in the light of the above, we couldn't classify going on a cruise, visiting 6 countries in Europe as an adventure, right? Neither can we say disappearing to the island of Malabo, alone, not in a group of 10, duh as an adventure?? How about travelling all the way to Sri Lanka?? Alone??

Ok, fine, you see how very boring my life is? Gats spice it up. Gats do something! I cannot have children and grandchildren and have nothing to tell them! So what do I badly want to do?? NOT climb mount Kilimanjaro, or swim through an ocean, or trek through the desert of course! Nor go someplace primitive where all we do is eat roasted lizard sitting in the open, or some eeeww-ish thing like that! But what? I think what I really want to do is visit all the hidden, little-or not-talked about places first in Africa, then all over the world. So when you tell people you went to some tiny town in Austria, they go 'huh?'. That gives me a kick!

So, what adventures have you had? What do you desire to do? Where would you like to go? What is that burning thing (maybe we ought to leave the word 'adventure' out of it) on your mind you always wished you could do?? And if you have had an adrenalin-pumping experience, please, pray, share with us mortals! Who knows, it may that that in giving your adventure-desire voice, it comes alife!

Be Free oh.....and get a life! *impish grin*

  1. My greatest adventure is to learn to swim in some vast lake or river...first I have to learn how to swim and overcome the fear of closed spaces hehehe...my immediate adventure is to go to Senegal and relive my childhood days... those were some of the happiest days for me, in terms of coming of age, discovering myself and the fun adventures I had combing the streets sightseeing, going to the beaches (I loved Goree Island) long walks through boulevards, my love of reading came to full bloom then and my interest in the french language (then) was born...lol. I'd like to go horseback riding at the dakar park, scared to death of horses, but I always promised myself if I got back there, I would do all the activities I was fearful of doing as a young kid. Wishful thinking though huh?

    cheers

    This post fills my heart with longing, that word "adventure". I went on an adventure once and remembering it fills me with deep nostalgia. It was the single best time ever of my life. There's something inside of us that was created for adventure, i'm telling you. I think it's self abuse to live a safe life, not venturing out, not doing something that scares you so badly but you do anyways.
    Honestly, this post meeehn, this post. There's so much I want to say about it...so much...it's where my heart is lodged right now...
