While I was away I stumbled on one of Alastair Humphreys' write ups on mircoadventures and I was fascinated by it. I love to travel, visit new places, try new food, shops and just see how other people live. But money has been a limiting factor for me, its so expensive to travel around the world these days.
So when I read about micro adventure I thought that was exactly what I needed and it won't really cost me that much plus i just moved to a new city and I needed to explore the city anyway.
"Microadventure simply means getting out to somewhere close to home, overnight, couple of days, cheap, simple and most importably a lot of fun".
Over the summer, I decided to explore British Columbia (beautiful BC as it is called) going on these micro adventures and it was fun.
My first stop was Whistler (extremely amazing). If you love out door activities, you need to check this place out. I went on the gondola peak to peak ride, it was really fun. (being someone who is scared of heights, this was really going out of my comfort zone...but it was mad fun).
Parksville (Vancouver island): I went on long walks by the sea wall and it was great. My favourite thing to do is take long walks and I was able to do lots of that here.
Car race: Errr, didn't quite enjoy this adventure, I'm not a sports person, i'm glad i tried it though but won't be trying this again.
Harrison Hot springs: the mountains here are amazing! Pictures don't even do them any justice. Had a wonderful time in the warm pool and just looking at these mountains.
White Rock was fabulous and the long walk I had on the beach was equally as amazing as the town plus the nice ice cream.
I live for exploring new places, meeting passionate people and just having fun. I won't let anything beat me down or hold me from having fun! I enjoyed my micro adventure and i'm going to spend the rest of the year chasing adventures close to home.
