If you were to map out your daily movements, would you find that you tend to stick to what you know with little deviation? …from the house to the job to the gym to the supermarket, back to the house, and get up the next day to do it all again? Order is good in many ways but if we get too accustomed to seeing the world in one way, we lose perspective and the ability to be creative and to imagine what could really be. It’s like the frog at the bottom of the well – he thinks the sky is as big as the top of the well. But, if he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.

We all have mountains to climb in life, but by taking control of your circumstances and deliberately seeking out adventure instead of passively waiting for life’s little adventures to present themselves, you get much more out of literally summitting the proverbial mountain than a metaphor to life’s challenges. Free from the chaos, distraction and tyranny of routine, you will experience a profound sense of adventure and discovery, reinvigorated creativity and awareness, simplicity, realism, independence, self-reliance and growth of the spirit.

Besides, it’s better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times, right? Below are some of the destinations we plan to visit this summer. Join us!
