Would you prefer to have an adventure, or read about one?
While there are a few adventures I would prefer to read about, for example, anything that triggers my selective fear of heights, having an adventure is far better. How to get those adventures takes some thought, which I’ll demonstrate with a couple of examples. My first trip to Europe is one type of adventure, one where you’re so completely thrown into a new environment that it’s overwhelming. When Jeff and I landed in Paris we picked up our rental car, destined for our hotel. We did a half-circle around the périphérique, exiting at the proper spot, landing on the streets of Paris without a clue where the street signs were located. Using our map and counting intersections and roundabouts, we miraculously found the hotel. After checking in we decided to walk to the Eiffel Tower, again figuring to use our obviously excellent map skills to locate. After a few blocks, we noticed that the street signs are located on the sides of the buildings, about ten feet or so off the ground. Tha
