I believe that adventure is about stretching yourself: mentally, physically or culturally. It is about doing what you do not normally do, pushing yourself hard and doing it to the best of your ability.
If that is true then adventure is all around us, at all times. Adventure is accessible to normal people, in normal places, in short segments of time and without having to spend much money.
And with that I decided to spend a night in the tent in my backyard. It’s only a very small thing I know but still adventure enough to be worth it. This video is a simple account of that time. The best part of it all was waking up outside. I think next time I’m going to sleep in the hammock I got in Cambodia, its been sitting in my closet for ages.
