Where to Find your Next Adventure

<p>Adventure. Just the word alone conjures up possibilities, a quest into the unknown but adventure has as many nuances as ways to approach them, and each pursuit connects us to ourselves and the world around us, inspiring us to find our own explorations. There is the adventure of fine wines and finer whiskies, of riding the water in Inverness, Scotland, or possibly finding a connection with your inner Yogi on Big Sur’s stunning cliffs. It could be you want the lion’s share on Safari with meals fit for a gourmand. There are times we need to shake the cobwebs off our daydreams and make way for possibility from dream to doer. Adventure take us out of our comfort zones, we learn and develop new skills, and when we carry those sensations out into the world, we are renewed, transformed and fundamentally are changed. We go back to our daily lives, with a new sense of perspective. Here are five adventures awaiting you. If you love great food, day markets and are a connoisseur of fine wines and also want to explore, maybe it’s time to book some travel time with Micato Safaris, A Saveur Culinary Award winner http://www.saveur.com/content/culinary-travel-awards-2014-winners-best-c.... There, you can book an African adventure, explore Nairobi’s local markets and visit LEWA, a wildlife conservancy, home to some of Africa's endangered species, including the black rhino and Grevy's zebra. Does your idea of the ultimate escape involve whiskey at the end of the day? The Nip – Whisky &amp; Gin Festival (plan for next year as it’s going on now) http://www.thenip.scot/ in Inverness, Scotland might be just the place to imbibe after a sweet day of SUP or water biking the waters of Inverness and Loch Ness. Hang out with the locals and sip an ale at Dores Inn; bring home some stories worth repeating or go on your own dragon/monster search and come back with your own tale to tell. If the mind-body-spirit-heart connection is key to rejuvenating your soul, Esalen http://www.esalen.org/, a retreat in Big Sur hits all the right spots. From yoga workshops and amazing massages to Esalen’s many workshops and breathtaking cliff-side hot springs, this adventure is for those that believe learning is always awe-inspiring.
