Being adventurous requires curiosity to explore and discover the unacquainted. Adventure can present as being loud, spontaneous, and can be in the wide open. It can also whisper and be hidden. Whether you’re taking a journey with your eyes and ears as you read a book, or journey with your feet as you step out to discover, your world will never be the same.
