Today’s a bit of a break from all the travel related posts over the past month. I hope you’re not tired of them yet, as we’re only half way through our South American adventure!
The people at Berghaus make great, high quality outdoor wear for all sorts of adventures. They’ve been living adventure for nearly 50 years and now they want to know what adventure means to you. One lucky winner will get £100 to spend at Berghaus, and four runners up will receive a Berghaus base laye. Berghaus have asked some athletes what adventure means to them, so if you need any inspiration take a look at this video.
I couldn’t resist offering my two pennies worth; how could I?! So here’s what adventure means to me.
Adventure is something everyone can find in their day to day. It’s not always the bigs things like travelling the world, it can be the smallest thing that differs from what you’d normally do. It’s about stepping out of your comfort zone, doing something that scares you: doing something new.
Recently I’ve had a fair few adventures. Some I’ve enjoyed instantly: zip wiring in Peru and trekking to Machu Picchu, others I’ve come to see as great adventures: biking down Death Road in Bolivia, and learning how to get the right bus in Peru.
Whether I’ve enjoyed the adventure straight away, or its taken a few days to look back with a smile, all adventures have had something in common. They make memories, stories and moments I couldn’t help but share. They’re memories to look back on. Stories chockablock with thrills, fear, laughter and smiles. That’s what adventure is really about: creating moments too cherish forever.
To enter the competition simply write a blog post on what adventure means to you, and post the link to it in the comments part of this page.
