The Adventure Journals

The Adventure Journals series is a celebration of the spirit of adventure. Inside you will find stories that feature topics ranging from history and culture, to action and adventure, to the environment and our role in preserving it.

We ask the important questions - Why do we go to remote corners of the world and what do we find when we get there? We trace the footsteps of people who live for adventure, and through their eyes we hope you are propelled to live more, experience more and search out more adventure.

Adventure doesn’t exist in place, it is not of a specific time, nor does it require a weighty financial investment. Adventure lives in heart of the people that seek it out. It hides in the blurry lines at the edge of maps and whispers to people from outside of their comfort zone. Join us on our quest to find what lies of the heart of every adventure story we feature.
