How To Create A Microadventure

A little while ago we came across a fantastic blog by Alastair Humphreys. Alastair is an adventurer, blogger, author, and motivation speaker from the UK. After reading a few of his posts we realized we had found a kindred spirit; he's gripping life with both hands and shaking out all the experiences he can from it. Although his adventures typically are grand in scope - walking across India, rowing the Atlantic - he's created something we want to do, and encourage you to join us in… the microadventure.

A microadventure is a brief break in your routine. A mini escape. A chance to experience something new, have the thrill of adventure, and then get back to work.

British Columbia is brimming with exciting places to explore and discover. Our challenge is to commit to stepping outside of our normal, day to day lives and go on at least one microadventure this year. Use your weekend and stay in a remote cabin along the Sea to Sky corridor. Sail to a coastal island. Leave work early on a week day and find somewhere remote to camp out for a night

Where would you go on an microadventure? Interested in taking the Microadventure Challenge? We want to hear from you. Tweet or email us and let us know your plans.

"You do not need to fly to the other side of the planet to do an expedition. You do not need to be an elite athlete, expertly trained, or rich to have an adventure.

Adventure is only a state of mind. 
Adventure is 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.

And if that is true then adventure is all around us, at all times." - Alastair Humphreys
