Whether you’re a born adventurer, climbing the Everest every two weeks, or, on the contrary, just a couch-potato slowly baking his way into a chip in his living-room, you should use this summer in order to push your limits. No, not baking your way into a chip in your yard instead of the living-room. But actually doing something more. Expanding your horizon and trying new things.
Let’s face it, routine can be a pretty boring thing if done properly – why not become a lousy routiner? (Yes, that’s a word now. Deal with it.)
You were born for great things – the only thing standing in the way is yourself.
Here are our suggestions for your upcoming adventure-filled summer.
- Go on a spontaneous trip. Wake up one morning, pack a few basics, gather a bunch of friends (or, even better, go alone), rent a car/van/buggy/horse and go. It’s as simple as that.
- Pick up archery. 2012 is the year of the archers, culminating with the amazing Hawkeye from Marvel’s The Avengers. Find a local archery course and sign up. Sooner than you know it you’ll be able to impress anyone with your mad Wilhelm Tell skills. Also, catch your own food in the forest. And survive a possible zombie apocalypse. While catching your own food. Did I mention that you’ll impress your friends?
- Buy something big. Like a horse. Or a boat. Or build your own boat then try to sail it on your friendly local lake. For more adventure, build it faulty and start screaming ‘Wilson’ while sinking.
- Start your day with partying, having dinner and end it with breakfast and coffee. Do this for a week.
- Attend one of those huge beach parties, get wasted, go skinny-dipping at midnight. The extreme thing here is trying to remember everything the next day. Good luck with that.
Of course, there are the obvious sky-diving, bungee-jumping, whitewater-rafting choices of extreme things to do, but why be ordinary? Have an amazing summer and remember not to settle for routine.
