What is Adventure Travel?

skydiving-hawaiiI love adventure! Occasionally, I’m reminded that not everyone else in the world shares my enthusiasm for adventures, but I tend to disagree. To me, the beauty of adventure is that everyone has their own idea of an “adventure.” Now I most certainly don’t consider myself to be one of those Everest-aspiring hardcore adventurers that you [used to be able to] read about in National Geographic Adventure magazine. I’m more apt to go skydiving on a whim, or be coerced into shark diving. So whether your idea of an adventure is searching for a hidden bookstore in Milan, skydiving in Cape Town, or climbing Kilimanjaro, happy adventuring! So what does an “adventure” and “adventure travel” mean to you?
