Are you staring out the kitchen window, wrist deep in dirty dishes, wishing you had enough money/time/guts to do something exciting and adventurous? Maybe what you need is a micro-adventure.

What is a microadventure?

According to Wikipedia: The term microadventure was made common by British adventurer and author Alastair Humphreys (do checkout his website for inspiration) and is defined as an overnight outdoor adventure that is "small and achievable, for normal people with real lives". The New York Times described a microadventure as "short, perspective-shifting bursts of travel closer to home, inspiring followers to pitch a tent in nearby woods, explore their city by moonlight, or hold a family slumber party in the backyard." See our recent blog post for inspiration, background and more links about Microadventures.
