Before you create your personal adventure list- Let’s define adventure.
There are as many definitions of adventure as there are types of adventures to be experienced.
Adventure is getting out and being bold. It’s trying new foods or new activities to say you’ve done it. It’s anything that pushes your routine and comfort zone…but most of all it’s fun and thrilling.
For our purposes, adventures for Baby Boomers and retirement generally means something outside your day to day routine, Not necessarily risky but risky in that it pushes your experience level and maybe your comfort zone but is still something you’d like to try.
Adventures can be broken down into all types of new activities:
- Sports activities
