Inspired by Alastair Humphreys, I wanted to do things I hadn't done before, have fun, explore and enjoy wherever I happened to be. These adventures couldn’t be expensive, because I wasn’t making much money. They also had to be doable wherever I ended up living, because back in January 2015 I was still waiting for my hard-fought-for visa to stay in the UK, uncertain I’d be in the same country at the end of the month, let alone the end of the year. I wanted to discover things close to home, wherever that was.
The year began with a list of challenges and fun things to try (some too expensive or time-consuming . . . at least for now!) and I continued to add to the list until at last count I'd collected over 120 ideas. I'll have to keep going if I want to try them all!
Here is a selection (in no particular order) of 52 things I did this year, usually accompanied by my lovely partner, who was very kind to indulge me in my plots and schemes! If you'd like to add them to your own list of microadventure challenges, feel free. Perhaps you could also go on . . .
A microadventure every week for a year!
This was a very enjoyable challenge! If you’re inspired, perhaps you could do the same thing in 2016. I’d love to read about your adventures - please do leave a link in the comments.
This time last year, I set myself the challenge of having an adventure every week in 2015. Most of them would be very small adventures. Mini adventures. Microadventures.
