What does adventure mean to you?
“To me, adventure means doing something or seeing something or tasting something or even just feeling something that I haven’t before. It’s that extra chilli in your noodle soup. It’s that decision to walk instead of take a cab. It’s that plan to ditch your inhibitions and just see what happens.”
