It’s easy to think of adventure as something out of reach… too self-indulgent, too expensive, too time-consuming. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
This past year I’ve embraced the idea of "micro-adventures" as a way to add more excitement and inspiration to my daily life. A micro-adventure can be almost anything. As long as it’s easy, exciting (whatever that means for you), and breaks up your routine.
