God it’s a thrown around word isn’t it? ‘Adventure’ is on fleek. New adventure merch, pinterest boards and instagram accounts dedicated to the pursuit pop up every day.
I’ll be honest with you. The incredible images that litter these feeds – of people on the edge of precipices, falling from the sky or laying in hammocks suspended between crevices – had turned me a shade of green. I had found myself recoiling every time I read the part of my bio that makes the claim The Foraged Life is a space for adventure stories. Like I’m fobbing myself (and you) off because I’m not on a perpetual backpacking, bungee jumping, adrenalin trip.
Then I had a think, and, as often happens after a think, I had my perspective reset and realised I was being a bit of a twonk. Now, I’ve got some fresh thoughts on adventure.
