Thursday, Sept. 15: What is the craziest adventure you’ve ever been on?
There are so many ways to go with this. I could get all philosophical on you and say the greatest adventure was meeting and getting married to my husband. And that is true. There has been no greater adventure than convincing this very independent northern city girl to settle down and marry a southern boy. But I decided to go a bit more literal and talk about some of the things I have seen and done that are also adventurous.
I mentioned our honeymoon briefly in a previous blogtember post but it was definitely a crazy adventure from start to finish. When we were offered the opportunity to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon we had two options, Kona on the Big Island, or Maui. After consulting a friend who was actually born in Hawaii we opted for Kona because he said it was less touristy and more of an authentic Hawaiian experience.
We still could have chosen to lay on the beach the entire time we were there but we didn’t. We jokingly referred to our honeymoon as seeing Hawaii by land, air and sea.
By land: hiking the volcano national park and driving all over the island
By air: helicopter ride over an active volcano and ziplining over waterfalls
By sea: boat ride, snorkeling and swimming in the bluest water I have ever seen
We explored so hard on our honeymoon. We hiked and drove to random sites and swam and tried new food and basically said yes to trying anything that came our way. It wasn’t the honeymoon for everyone but it was perfect for us and it was definitely the craziest adventure I have ever been on.
What is the craziest adventure you have ever been on? Do you prefer a more relaxed honeymoon or one full of adventures?
