This is one of my favorites out of all the outdoor adventure quotes.

Adventure is different for everyone. Sometimes an adventure brings you across the globe, jumping out of a plane, or climbing a mountain.

These are exciting things most people would define as adventure.

Driving to the store or exploring your own town can be a wild adventure depending on your mindset.
