 9 1/2 Ways to Ignite Adventure Resources

1. create an adventure list – need some suggestions? Remember: Write it Down, Make it Active, Plan it, Do it

2. what’s the 1 thing? Going somewhere for a quick trip? Stuck somewhere with some time to kill? Find the 1 thing…

  • wikitravel.org
  • visit the homepage of the tourism bureau for the city you’re visiting. They may also have a facebook and twitter account too!
  • Lonely Planet Guidebooks are comprehensive, well-written and a great value
  • Ask the front desk person, taxi driver, restaurant server, flight attendant, etc.

3. eliminate “buts”

  • Stop making excuses. Simply put, if you find yourself saying, “but”, you’re making an excuse. Eliminate “buts”. Otherwise, you’re keeping yourself from going anywhere. For every “but”, there’s a solution. Find it.
