Adventure List

Make Every Day an Adventure

Do you know what’s wrong with bucket lists?

It turns into another thing that you can NOT do. Instead of inspiring us, it turns into something we wish we can do but most likely will never do because it’s so out of reach.

Sure, I enjoy looking at beautiful places and people swimming with sharks in crystal waters or spending the night in an igloo looking at the Aurora Borealis. But the reality of that happening any time soon, when I live in Guatemala, in the middle of 3 volcanoes, sets in, and instead of inspiring me, it starts to feel like another disappointment and goal that can’t be accomplished in the near future.

I realized that no one is focusing on the magical Adventure list. One that we can start doing right now, and start living a fulfilled, adventurous, full-of-experience LIFE!

It’s time to create the most important commodity ever – MEMORIES.
