“Looking back on 17 years of cruising over 23,000 miles, we are amazed by the places we’ve seen, the things we’ve done and the issues we’ve solved together. It’s not always easy, and it’s not always comfortable, but we have never regretted a moment of it.” — Ron and Nancy Goldberg, Duet
Defining adventure isn’t simple. It depends on personal perspective. But one thing we can agree on is that adventure doesn’t happen within our comfort zones. The first step always involves taking a risk, opening ourselves to new and remarkable experiences that may seem beyond our imaginable grasp.
We found a handful of people who had a dream, made a plan and headed for the horizon. Their stories are inspirational, largely because we can see ourselves in them — and because they did it.
We asked these world voyagers how they got started, how they prepped, what they’ve learned and how it’s changed them. We didn’t have room to share everything, but you can find their complete answers here. They make for good reading. Whether they inspire you to dream or create a plan is up to you.
