This is one essential element of adventure…

The element of Surprise…

On a trip last year, we did something totally unplanned that became the highlight of the whole adventure. We were in Varanasi, a place where people normally take a boat ride or take a trip out to some of the temples but I wanted to give people a different experience – something a little more authentic.

The other has the mind looking at backup plans and asking ‘what if this doesn’t work?’

One takes the path of adventure, committed to creating something new.
The other looks for what others have done before and follows the road they’ve paved.

One says it doesn’t matter when a step doesn’t work as expected and continues anyway.
The other gets frustrated about it and gives up.

There is often a fine line between the two but the difference in results can be quite dramatic.

Are you fully committed to living your authentic adventure?
