What is a microadventure?

What is a microadventure?

A microadventure is a small version of a big adventure. It can be hard to plan a big adventure. Time, money, or a relation can hold you back from doing a big expedition. This doesn’t have to mean that adventure cannot happen. Thanks to the concept of Alastair Humpreys we can break the 9 to 5 routine with microadventures.

The idea is that adventures not only have to take place at the other side of the world. Through small adventures you can break the daily routine. I found out that a microadventure gives me new energy untill the next bigger adventure is reality. You can think of adventures like a little bike ride or a little canoe trip. You can actually come up with anything as long as it gives you just that uncertainty that you don’t have in your daily life. It’s the thrill of starting something small that at first you didn’t think you could handle.

What is the value of small, spontaneous, unpredictable trip to the unknown? With microadventures you create great memories that you will never forget. No matter what, where or for how long, dealing with a new set of circumstances requires new thought processes and energies, initiative, quick wits, and a positive attitude towards success. By leaving your comfort zone you put things in a new perspective.
