Where to find a spirit of ad­ven­ture

Lonely Planet (UK) - - In This Issue... -

‘Ad­ven­ture,’ says Ed Stafford, the first per­son to walk the length of the Ama­zon, ‘is hon­est, hum­bling, tough, frus­trat­ing and un­be­liev­ably ad­dic­tive.’ Ad­ven­ture comes in many forms but when it strikes it’s hard to re­sist. In the early 20th cen­tury, Gertrude Bell mapped the Mid­dle East af­ter she had pre­vi­ously climbed Mont Blanc. More re­cently, Cana­dian au­thor Will Fer­gu­son hitch-hiked Ja­pan fol­low­ing the cherry blos­som sakura for his book Hokkaido High­way Blues. How­ever you are cal­i­brated for ad­ven­ture, step­ping even a lit­tle out­side your com­fort zone is enough to gain con­fi­dence in your ca­pa­bil­i­ties.
