Not everybody has a week or two or even a month to explore the world and travel, which is why microadventures are awesome. A microadventure is a trip or vacation that is short in both distance and time and also inexpensive. However, that does not mean that the microadventure is going to be boring or unexciting. Quite the opposite in fact! Instead, They can be fun, adventurous, and very fulfilling.
Most microadventures take place in one day or an overnight, but some people may also turn one into a two or three-night adventure. When it comes to planning one of these bite-sized adventures, your only restraint is time. You can plan something in your own backyard, a mile away from home, or an hour or two away. It all depends on how far you want to go. The point is, you want to get out and exploring in the shortest amount of time possible and maximize your adventure-time.
Spending time outdoors is a great microadventure in itself, and choosing that broad term can lead to many more choices. As you know - Great Explorer - the great outdoors has so much to offer when it comes to adventures - hiking, fishing, biking, camping, climbing, running, roadtripping, hitchhiking, swimming, canoeing, etc. Use you imagination here - you’re already here so I bet you know a thing or two about adventure.
Really, that’s required is your feet, and probably some energy in the form of foodstuffs, and some water. Adventures can be had with the bare minimum. It’s an excellent trait of what we like to do.
The beauty of microadventures is that you can decide what works best for you and your crew. Even if you’re on a budget, rent gear on the cheap from NeverTrackedOut, find a rideshare, camp in somebody’s yard, or peruse many of the other budget travel and adventure services out there.
If you’re feeling uninspired, sometimes all you need to keep the blood pumping is a good old adventure. Hit the woods, grab a quick ride out of town, or rent some gear, and ride your bike out to the mountain. Adventures for Everyone!
