Lately, I have been thinking a lot about some families and their experiences compared to my own. I never like to compare my life to others, and I’m not comparing it for the sake of trying to change the way I do things but stay with me here. I’m finding a few trends in the family adventure game that I find quite interesting.
I follow a lot of families. Families that have extraordinary lives while they travel and work on the road. Families that sit and have a hard time getting out much and then families that do everything in between. As I’ve gotten older in life, I have seen a trend towards people in social media showing all the fantastic things they do in the world so as to show off how cool their life is. And I don’t say that to be mean or derogatory, I say that just to state that there are more of us being able to see the lives of these people than ever before.
For some of us, we may be inspired to get out and do more with our daily lives, but more often than not, I have found that it does the opposite. People think they can’t do all those terrific things, so therefore their adventures would pale in comparison. So why do them?
I want to meet the families out there that want to try these fantastic things just to try them. To say, “I don’t know what will happen, but I’m gonna give this a shot.” It’s a rare family. Especially with tiny littles at home, it just is plain difficult. It not only takes guts to get out, it takes love and a level of commitment to the idea of travel and adventure. I find there are categories of people that like to get out and adventure with their family. The ones that like to get outside on a typical weekend for a quick walk or a short camping trip, the ones that like to go on an adventure where the adventure is taken care of for you (Disney Land for example), and those that make their own adventure like traveling the world to see new experiences and new people every day. There are all kinds of adventures to share.
My family is the first one. Clearly, we like to do a lot of this but we don’t get out on extravagant adventures and don’t spend a lot of our money on these things. I truly don’t believe you need to in order to have fun. That being said, which kind of adventurer are you? Shoot me a message! I’d love to hear!
