Hi, I am Amber! I was born and raised in Northern California. I have been running this website Ask for Adventure since 2018.
I love to visit new places, go on new adventures, and share my experiences with others.
For as long as I could remember I have always enjoyed trying new things. I grew up wakeboarding, jet skiing, snowboarding, riding motorcycles and definitely have a love of adventure.
There is nothing quite as exciting as that feeling you get when going somewhere new, or try something for the first time. I created this website after feeling like I needed some more fun in my life.
Life gets busy, and it’s so easy to just get wrapped up in the day-to-day of everything that needs to get done, and not take the time to do the things we love.
We all have a list of places we would like to go and things we want to try. Too often our dreams just get pushed to the side.
This is exactly how I was feeling when I started Ask for Adventure!
I realized that I wasn’t really living a life full of adventure, I was just living. I decided that something needed to change, so I started this site to motivate myself to chase my dreams.
This is one of my favorite quotes, and after hearing it I was inspired to start living a life of adventure.
“Don’t ask for security, ask for adventure. Better to live 30 years full of adventure than 100 years safe in the corner. ”-Jim Rohn
Since starting this travel blog, I have hiked to some beautiful waterfalls, visited some amazing places, and started checking things off my list.
I have also brought my kids with me along the way, and I hope that this one day inspires them to go after their own dreams.
It’s easy to get stuck in a life of “security” or comfort, but getting out of your comfort zone and really living is what makes life more memorable.
I believe that adventure doesn’t have to be an expensive trip to another country or that dream vacation, you can find it in everyday life right in your hometown.
Go on that hike you have always thought about, take up a new hobby, or plan a weekend getaway.
Just do that thing that you always think about and wish that you could try. Later in life, you will be happy you did. While it’s not always easy to do the things we dream of, it’s always worth it.
I love that I am able to share my adventures with others on this website.
Today, just a few years after starting, Ask for Adventure, has now turned into a business and I am grateful for the millions of people that have visited my site.
Here you will find new destinations, things to do, and travel motivation. I love to share the places that I visit in hopes that it will inspire and help others to plan their trips.
I hope that this website helps you to discover new things, travel, and go after your own adventures in life!
If happiness is the goal – and it should be, then adventures should be top priority.– Richard Branson
