Now that we are well into the summer and many of us are taking vacations, I have been thinking back to some of the crazier trips I’ve taken. To be perfectly clear, I have no aversion to staying at a lovely 5-star hotel, but some of my most adventuresome trips were much simpler—and quite exhilarating. I have zip-lined in the jungles of Costa Rica, gone river rafting in Wyoming, come face to face with bison and elk in Yellowstone National Park, and even gone scuba diving with whale sharks in Honduras. Whew! That’s a lot of adventure! But the common denominator in all of my daring trips was to see our big, beautiful world. This made me realize that life is an adventure and meant to be explored!
