Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing”. Can you imagine a totally blind woman describing her life in the dark as an adventure? I have learned from Helen Keller that “adventure” can be defined in many ways.
Just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so too can adventure be defined in many ways. I will never be an adventurer who risks great physical danger by climbing Mount Everest, swimming with the sharks, or running with the bulls. But I have experienced tremendous personal growth and confidence from our many biking adventures in France, Germany and Austria. These adventures have expanded my universe and have changed my life and how I view travel in many ways. Adventure for most of us can be as simple as taking a risk and exposing yourself to an unknown path. The rewards of this simple adventure can be as life-changing as climbing Mount Everest.
I hope that you will join me often as I plan new adventures biking along the greenways and canals of France. Perhaps you will be inspired to plan your own adventure and experience the great accomplishment and growth that only true adventure can provide!
