It is a widely known fact that you can convince me to do pretty much anything, even something I’m severely disinclined to do, by calling it an adventure. The idea of adventure, so deliciously irresistable, stirs every desire I have to challenge myself and to lift myself out of the mundane in pursuit of a new narrative for my life.
It is this quest for the uncertain that teaches us how to really live – whether we’re swinging from vines or sailing around the world, whether we’re giving ourselves up to the embrace of a foreign culture or we’re falling in love. And these are the best stories of life. Just ask Indiana Jones or Carl Fredricksen.
