What's The Adventurists?
"There is nothing new under the sun" said a beardy ecclesiastic, thousands of years ago. Although with the power of hind sight you could have argued that the entire American continent would have been new to him and fell into his category of being under the sun, it seems that humans have always worried about the world being boring.
Moany old git. He had nothing to whinge about. He probably didn't have a TV constantly mind shovelling him factoids about every corner of the earth. It's also historically unlikely that he had a GPS. I doubt the lonely planet had shat forth all manner of papery monsters telling you which colour toilet you need in Nicaragua. No, the beardy one had it easy. His maps had edges. Ours go round in a globe shape. Rubbish.
Some git has already walked off the edge of all our maps, there's a traffic jam to get to the top of the world's tallest mountain, every millimeter of our good planet has been scanned by satellites and rammed into your mobile phone. What room is there left for those of us who still yearn for a bit of old school adventure? We live in a hermetically sealed, health & safety shit-storm where using a ladder is considered unacceptably dangerous and adventure travel means a guided tour up a mountain or staying in a hotel with less than four stars.
Here at The Adventurists we believe there is still adventure to be found in the world. We just need to go try that little bit harder to find it. Let's cut new edges into our maps, break our GPS' and set forth into the world to find out what happens.
In the hope that we might help inject a little unknown back into the world we make our own variety of ill considered adventures for you all to get stuck into. Have a look and see what you will be doing next summer. Or winter...
