Say Yes To Adventure - - News -

can eas­ily say it was ev­ery­thing I imag­ined it would be, and more. Stand­ing on Machu Pic­chu and watch­ing the sun rise over the sur­round­ing ma­jes­tic moun­tains was mind-blow­ing, and some­thing I won't for­get in a hurry. Add to that moun­tain bik­ing the in­fa­mous Death Road just out­side of La Paz and cre­at­ing crazy il­lu­sions on the Salt Plains, I had suc­cess­fully ticked off three more items on my bucket list.

It's not just me who has been tick­ing off 'must-do' ad­ven­tures, ei­ther. Simon Rutherford opts for a dif­fer­ent mode of trans­port as he kayaks around Van­cou­ver Is­land in Canada on his way to a wed­ding. A few nav­i­ga­tional er­rors and some un­pre­dictable weather made for a month of amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and mem­o­ries to last a life­time. In­spired by the words of John Muir, Michele Fair­bairn set her­self a goal, train­ing for a year be­fore climb­ing HalfDome, which sits at 2,695 me­tres in the Sierra Ne­vada moun­tains of the Yosemite Na­tional Park. She pushed past her men­tal lim­its and was re­warded with a life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, leav­ing her ea­ger for the next ad­ven­ture.

En­joy these and the other in­spir­ing con­tri­bu­tions in the pages that fol­low; a true cel­e­bra­tion of or­di­nary peo­ple do­ing ex­tra­or­di­nary things.

Happy ad­ven­tur­ing,
