Juliana Riverin's insight:

We have no way of knowing if this person had an actual adventure, or if they just are saying they did because they don't know any better. Maybe that's the idea, which honestly makes no sense. 

It is a pretty picture, though.

BERLIN – U.S.
Juliana Riverin's insight:

I love the quote "He drew laughter when he said a clandestine bicycle ride into Soviet-run east Berlin had badly upset his father, who took away his diplomatic passport and grounded him for almost causing an international incident". It really illustrates a certain kind of adventure. The secret kind. When you don't know you had an adventure 'till after.

Juliana Riverin's insight:

There's this quote: "in many instances, the end result is not what he envisioned when he began, but it is just as pleasing, and sometimes more so" and I really think that it sums up the concept of adventures perfectly. Obviously, painting isn't a great adventure on it's own. Actually, I don't think painting is a great adventure at all, but the quote... The quote just describes an adventure, describes the shifting and changing of an experience until it isn't at alll what it was, but what it has become is so much greater, so much MORE, that it really doesn't matter. And in the end, you love it.

A perfect example of what ISN'T an adventure.

Juliana Riverin's insight:

So there are some references to things universally considered as adventures. Firewalking, for example. Still, it isn't exactly what I am looking for, because the goal is to find an adventure in your life. Not by traveling to specifically firewalk. Because that isn't an adventure, that is a planned activity, written into your calendar like any old buisness lunch or dropping off your dry cleaning.

Here's to all your weekend adventures. — at Sutro Tower. [via @usfca]


Via University of San Francisco
Juliana Riverin's insight:

Adventures are things that happen to you. They can't be plannned... Well, not completely. For example, if these people had planned to go to Sutro Tower, and nothing out of the ordinary had happened, they would't be calling it an adventure, they'd be calling it an activity. That's where most people get confused, I think.
