Grand Adventures PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Grand Adventures free pdf Adventure is a loose word, a spirit of trying something new, trying something difficult. Going somewhere different, leaving your comfort zone. Above all, adventure is about enthusiasm, ambition, open-mindedness and curiosity. Adventure is all around us, at all times. Even during hard financial times such as these. Times when getting out into the wild is more enjoyable, invigorating and important than ever. It is in this inspirational spirit that Alastair Humphreys introduces us to the exciting world of Grand Adventures - the most amazing, life-changing, career-enhancing, personality-forging, fun adventure of your life. Grand Adventures looks at the scary, enormous obstacles that are stopping us and shows us that there are ways around them. The practical preparations for a journey are far easier than summoning up the cojones to actually commit, to make the adventure happen, to do something difficult and daunting and daring with our lives. Following on from his popular Microadventures, Al here shines a spotlight on the things that are getting in the way, and crucially, how to get around them, including the financial commitment. He shows us that the most exciting adventures all begin with a single step. Whether you've always dreamed of cycling to the Sahara, walking across Australia, or rafting the Amazon, the longest journeys really do all begin with a single step. The book is crammed with hard-won wisdom from people who have actually been there and done it. These are people who have undertaken extraordinary journeys, who have travelled by boat and boot, car and kayak, bicycle and motorbike. People who had one trip of a lifetime and then returned to normal life, or who got bitten so badly by the bug that they devoted their life to the pursuit of adventure. Young people, old people. Men, women. Mates, couples, families. Extraordinary, inspiring people. People like you. Saving your pennies, overcoming inertia, generating momentum, getting out the front door: if you want it enough, you can do it. Tiny steps. Grand adventures. Are you in?
