Adventure can be created anywhere, but one great way to do it is to travel. Seek out the unexpected-- even close to home. I travel a lot for business and for fun. Wherever I go I always ask the locals where they like to eat, drink, get a coffee, shop, hang out, dance....it always leads to new discoveries. I always try to add one day to a business trip so that I can hire a local guide to take me somewhere outside the city I am working in. I used to travel exclusively to see museums and historical sites, but I am getting more into nature and also relaxation holidays. Know what you like and do it ! Personalize your holiday! **.For women travellers and backpackers (I did backpack across Russia once), an extra note to always have your wits about you. If you don't feel safe it is always worth getting that taxi home, or, if you don't feel safe in your hotel, it is always worth taking out that credit card for a good night's sleep. I am a big fan of always following your instincs!
