I am passionate about the positive benefits adventure has on the human spirit. I also believe that you do not need thousands of dollars or to travel to the end of the world to have an adventure. Together with my wife and friends we try to go on an adventure every weekend. These ‘microadventures’ are cheap simple adventures close to home.
– allow you to explore new and beautiful parts of your surroundings
– are a great way of building relationships and spending quality time with people in your life
– are environmentally friendly
– are good for your physical and spiritual health
– are challenging
– are low cost and take only a few hours!
Attached is some examples of what you can do but the options are only limited by your own imagination!
A small disclaimer here – no adventures are completely ‘safe’. Activities like kayaking, rock climbing and abseiling do require a certain level of skill, equipment, training and preparation. This learning process is all part of the journey of any adventure. So please do prepare yourself properly before getting out there so you can always go home to your families and loved ones and inspire them with your the stories of adventure and excitement at the end of the day.

A chap named Alistair Humphreys from the UK coined the phrase ‘microadventure’. (You can read more about him here). I have lived in Singapore for 15 years and am still amazed at the places I have never visited and the microadventures that I can come up with during my weekend time if I think a little creatively! I decided to start adding my microadventures to this section of my website to give other people idea’s and inspiration to go on your very own micro-adventures. If you do go then I would love to hear about them so do drop me a line, or if you ever want to join me then let me know!
I love the idea of microadventures – gotta keep it interesting 🙂 Thank you so much for the follow – I truly appreciate it!
Hi Joy, no worries 🙂
