What does adventure mean to you?
Adventure to me means confronting and owning your vulnerabilities in a way that connects you with others and the greater world around you. To explore beyond your mental boundaries. To open your heart to serendipity and awe—even in the smallest of interactions that take you outside your bubbles of comfort.
