I bet you remember at least few people who could not understand why would you go on a hike. On foot. With a back pack. Staying in a hostel. Remember their faces full of incomprehension? Oh and just imagine their faces after telling them you’d hike in the mountains. Or the steep hills close to the ocean. I can assure you they will say this is extreme. But is it?
What would you consider extreme: going on a hike alone or never leaving your home country (state)? Hiking in the mountains or always staying in some resort area? Going to a local market in rather unsafe country or not going anywhere?
In most of the cases not going anywhere, staying inside the resort and just never travelling abroad could be considered safer. But isn’t it extreme? I mean extremely boring?
So, people, meet the new extreme – huge fear, keeping you away from your next adventure. The same fear that keeps you locked in living a safe life that is so quiet it’s almost extreme. And still there must be the adventurous soul somewhere in you, so just do something extreme for you. Go on a trip alone, hike somewhere you never thought you could, go abroad!
