Have you ever been given advice that starts with: you need to appreciate the little things in life more?
Have you ever followed that advice?
It is the little things that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
| John Wooden |
I think of mini-adventures as the salt and pepper of life; a required ingredient throughout the day.
Sometimes we cannot seem them, but we know they are there. Sometimes we need more of them, so we just add a bit on top. Sometimes we don’t need them at all, but it is nice to know they are still there just in case, stashed away in a cupboard in the form of plans and lists.
Inspired by the words of thousands before me that have come into this life looking for meaning and writing about looking, I have chosen to follow a path of mini adventuring.
Exploration and childlike enjoyment can carry us through the darkest of moments.
Life is without meaning. You bring meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe to be.
Being alive is the meaning.
| Joseph Campbell |
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
| Marcus Aurelius |

You don’t have to travel far to get your travel action going. Start with doing free walking tours in your own city.
