What does ‘adventure’ mean to me?
Well, it’s not what you might expect. You’ll not find me bungy jumping or skydiving and as I have a slipey-slidey phobia you won’t find me snow skiing (I tried it once and was like Bridget Jones) or roller blading. But don’t get me wrong, I’m no nana when I visit far off places.
What you will find me doing is rocking up to strangers for a chat, asking audacious requests of posh people and places (I got an “extreme makeover” from a hair stylist to the stars in West Hollywood) and if I’m in a restaurant on my own I’m not shy, I pull out a notebook and pretend I’m a travel writer.
Here are some of my favourite adventures, from playing the spoons with a busker in Dublin, to parasailing in Australia and helmet diving in Tahiti. I’ve been fishing (it had to go back) in LA and ridden a camel in Oman. From ogling ancient ruins in Greece to having my feet nibbled by fish in a bizarre treatment in KL, I’ve had some amazing adventures!
This is what adventure means to me: doing things that are different from my every day life, pushing myself just a little bit (or a lot!) outside of my comfort zone and having experiences to quite literally write home about.
