I love adventures and will do pretty much anything if it’ll make for a good story. And in my 26 years, I’ve had some pretty amazing adventures: swimming with sharks in Fiji, driving from Boston to Dothan, AL in a 15-passenger van for a Habitat for Humanity project, paragliding off a mountain in Slovenia and sailing in the Great Barrier Reef are a few of my favorites.
Now that I’m working in the real world, I don’t always have the time (or budget) for grand adventures. But I put a lot of effort into finding things to do in my area, or a day trip away, that are fun-filled and wallet-friendly. My motto is: the more random and unusual the adventure, the better.
For now, this blog will mostly cover my adventures in North Carolina, but I’ll mix it up whenever I get the chance to travel. I have lots of stories to share, and I hope you enjoy!
Here are photos from some of my favorite adventures:
