Here’s the round-up of this week’s #TTOT on “Adventure!”
@lizcleere: What does “adventure” mean to you?
@malloryontravel: If it takes your breath away, even momentarily, it is an adventure @Emma_Sparks: Being just a little bit scared, but doing it anyway @Alan_Curr: Getting out of your comfort zone, that’s adventure. Doesn’t have to be crazy – it’s different for everyone
@bespoketravels: When the unplanned happens, creating a great story
@WhereisAnita: Adventure is when my heart beats faster as I discover a new place; live a unique experience; travel with no set plans @rkerestes: Adventure means getting out of your comfort zone, trying something unexpected and doing something that makes you a little afraid @RainyDayTravelr: Walking out the door with no expectations, at home or abroad
@Boomeranghotels: What is your best adventure memory? Do you have a picture?
@BeyondBlighty: What would your ultimate once-in-a-lifetime adventure be?
@TopdeckTravel: I’ve always wanted to trek across Mongolia
@innalameda: Sail around world @connvoyage: Would love to follow the Spice Road and eat all the cuisines that used those spices @GetawayMagazine: Photographing the migration in Masai Mara
@TravelandEscape: We would have to say that a trip to space would be at the top our list
@gingernomads: The Mongol Rally @TheAlexLop: Great white shark diving sans cage @Miriam_Kelliher: A safari n South Africa as well as getting up close and personal with mountain gorillas in Kenya/Uganda
@traveldudes: Give me a nice catamaran and a few sailing lessons and I would love to explore the Philippine islands and Papua New Guinea
@lethers: What would the three essentials in your Adventure Travel kit be?
@spaniola: As in any trip the 3 Ps. Purse, passport and pants
@luglesstravel: Camera, Water, and Toilet Paper
@journeyingjess: Food, more food, and some extra food. Hunger blows and I don’t want a grumbling stomach to distract me from the adventure
@nadi_krige: Loads of hair elastics and clips for unruly hair, a hip flask and one of my favourite books, probably a collection of fairy tales @AdlibTraveller: A knife, torch and spare pair of dry socks @gadventures: Comfortable shoes with good tread, headlamp, collapsing umbrella (for sun & rain)
@backpackerbecki: Patience, inquisitiveness (not to the point of intrusiveness) and adrenalin
@Boomeranghotels: What scenery do you enjoy the best adventures?
@enchantetravel: Love rugged hills or mountains along any coastline. Pure heaven for hikes @jkheaton: I am game for anything but love to be near water/ocean/lake/river/waterfall … any water please
@ephemerratic: Cities! Higher rate of encounters with strangers; new situations. Adventure for is about surprising interactions @ExpertVagabond: I’ve turned into a jungle fan, but mountains are a close second
@MyAdventureCa: Gotta go with Forests. You never know what lurks behind the next tree @travels4couples: Adventure can be found anywhere, mountains, beach, another country, etc. Just need the right attitude @Relacionista: All of the above; there is beauty in mountains and oceans, but also in the cities, old buildings, museums, art, the people
And there you have it, “Adventure!”
