Living an Adventure-filled Life – Lessons from COVID Times
Did your list of potential adventures evaporate after the Adventure Summit in 2020 when COVID hit? Mine did as I canceled and postponed trips and activities. What I found was that even with restrictions on travel, there are several creative ways to continue to pursue new experiences and mini-adventures.
By expanding the view of what is adventure, we can all be adventurers! After COVID, we have more opportunities to experience the world and add to our life experiences. There are things we can do in the outdoors and there are things we can do from our couches.
In this session, we will look at how to develop your adventure list through interactive exercises, brainstorming, and sharing of stories. I will share a number of resources. We will also look at how to develop a list for children and those who are less mobile. Challenge yourself to live a more adventurous life in 2022!
