Life is one big adventure

New Year's Eve 2009

It’s day two of Blog Every Day in May. If you’ve signed up with Rosalilium you’ll know that Elizabeth has set a topic for each day. Check out the topic calendar (and sign up to join the challenge too) on her website. 

Some days I might not follow the subject plan but today the subject is ‘adventure’ and being an an adventurous type of gal I’ve got plenty to contribute to this topic. I’ve had many, many adventures in my 43 years. But rather than bore you with tales of my youth – deeply fascinating though they are – I thought I’d take you on a pictorial trip through a few of adventures of my lifetime.

Cheetah Conservation Fund 2002

2002: Just another day stroking a cheetah at the Cheetah Conservation Fund in Namibia. I was on an expedition with Raleigh International, managing groups of young people.

2011: The biggest adventure of my life had just begun…

Sadly, I wasn’t able to find any of my photos that pre-date 1995, so my adventures prior to that are missing from this montage. I toured the US when I was 19 – my first big adventure – and those pictures must be in a box at my mum’s house. I’ve moved houses, countries – and it seems lives – so many times that I’ve lost track of many of my possessions.

What does adventure mean to me? Getting outside my comfort zone, taking a risk, flying by the seat of my pants and living life to the full. It’s still how I live my life, so I expect there to be plenty more adventures on the horizon.

What does adventure mean to you?

    • Thanks Linda, and thanks for reading my post. I’m certainly planning some more travelling before and during my dotage!
