The Adventure Philosophy
We seek adventure for philosophical reasons, for reasons of self-discovery or simply for the sake of it! Robert Frost had promises to keep in the dark, deep and dangerous woods and "miles to go" before he sleeps!
The mountains haunted William Wordsworth, tempting him and attracting him to them like living beings! While Tenzin Norgay climbed Mt Everest... Simply because: “it is there"!
Some seek adventure for self-discovery. To challenge themselves in the adversities that exist there in order to discover their hidden capabilities!
Others want to hear their soul that cannot be heard in the mad rush and loud sounds of our big cities and daily routine! For most of us, it is a call back to our basic wild instinct and simply to fix a dose of our eternal craving for adrenaline!
Whatever maybe your reason, come to the best for it! Pick your poison, seek your adventure and we'll help you attain the rush you desire!
