Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Adventure is a loose word, a spirit of trying something new, trying something difficult. Going somewhere different, leaving your comfort zone. Above all, adventure is about enthusiasm, ambition, open-mindedness and curiosity. What exactly is an adventure? Something that's new and exhilarating. Something that launches you from your comfort zone into a different place altogether. An adventure changes you and how you see the world. And all an adventurer really needs is bags of enthusiasm and boundless curiosity. Let Alastair Humphreys introduce you to the exciting world of microadventures – adventures that are close to home, cheap, simple, short, and yet very effective. A microadventure takes the spirit of a big adventure and squeezes it into a day or even a few hours. The point of microadventures is that you do not need lots of time and money to meet a new challenge. This practical guide is filled with ideas for microadventures and over 150 stunning photographs, plus tips and advice...
