This week we bring you a special show, to celebrate 6 fun-filled months and 25 scintillating episodes of the Adventure Podcast. Producer Vic and I look back over our first half-year and celebrate our wonderful guests. We also have a bit of a gossip and a catchup, and I deliver some breaking news about my audiobook(s).
As Vic and I remark on the show, there are several themes that we’ve noticed emerging from our guests so far.
One is a refreshing lack of chest-thumping, I’m-so-amazing, don’t-try-this-at-home egomania. Quite the contrary – many of our guests give talks and write blogs and manifestos specifically aimed at would-be adventurers to encourage them to get outside their comfort zone and give it a try.
Another is the glowing reports that we’ve heard from so many of our guests about the kindness, generosity and hospitality that they’ve witnessed all across the world in the course of their travels.
And a third is the charming humility and openness of our adventurers, a willingness to admit to their vulnerabilities, and an ability to share the struggle and hardship inherent in many of their adventures.
I hope that the combination of all the above, will have inspired many of you to take on your own adventures, to know that you don’t have to “that kind of person to do something extraordinary, to trust in your fellow humans no matter what their colour or culture, and to know that struggles and setbacks are not failures – they are where vacations end, and adventures begin.
