Picture me halfway up a rickety wooden sixty-foot ladder on a cliff face in Colorado, snorkelling in deep water in the Galpagos islands, or glacier trekking through a summer blizzard in the North West Passage. As I am not particularly athletic and afraid of heights, pushing myself into adventure travel has made me conquer challenges, meet fears head on and grow as a person. Writing about my experiences encourages others of similar attributes to do the same and broaden the reach of adventure travel. It can be rewarding for everyone involved, the writer and the reader. As a traveler over aged sixty who has only been adventure traveling for a few years, sharing experiences emphasize that there is no age limit, only the limits you put on yourself.
Melody has been writing for most of her adult life on travel, food and interiors. She is an ordinary person that enjoys challenging and pushing herself, facing fears with an eye on experiential travel. Sharing travel stories taps into all magical mysteries, mind-expanding delights life has to offer, whether it takes us around the globe or around the corner. No matter what you do, who you are or how much you make, you deserve to make the dream yours.
