    Thank you for this! Money can be so overwhelming (rather, lack of money) but adventure is definitely a state of mind – can never hear that enough :)

    Based on my experience of people saying how much they wish they could do what I was doing (cycling across America), the problem is not money or time. The main obstacle is that they are fearful of getting out of their comfort zone. That is why Alastair’s idea of a micro-adventure is so appealing.
