It probably goes without saying that having a few quality role models in life is a smart move. Through them you receive inspiration, determination, ideas, tips, and so much more.
An adventure role model is no different. These are the people who give you an extra push to keep exploring. Their fascinating tales from far-flung destinations captivate your imagination.Their bravery and “never say quit” attitude is contagious.
What makes a quality adventure role model? Hard to say. But there are literally hundreds of historical and modern adventure role models to choose from, everyone from Amelia Earhart to Sano Babu Sunuwar and Lakpa Tsheri Sherpa.
So have you given any thought to who your adventure role model(s) might be? I’ll share a few of mine with you in the comments below.
I would say, this guy: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=10807623
Michael is a great adventure role model!
You are mine Eric!
El Guapo too…
Yeah, Guap is OK, too. 🙂
He is pretty sweet.
You mean that? I’m flattered!
Of course I mean it Eric! You are more inspirational than a lot of people because you share your adventures and lessons learned and thoughts…you share your life with us. Every time I do something remotely dangerous/adventurous, I think of you.
That means a lot to me! Thank you so much for your kind words. My biggest goal with this blog has always been to inspire people to pursue adventure. So to hear that your out having adventures is great news!
Thanks, they are mini scale advenrures, but fun still.
None from the current era, but stories of ancient sailors have fascinated me a lot!
I often wonder how they did it.
Lots of thought. William Least Heat Moon, John Steinbeck, Charles Kuralt, Tim Cahill, The Blonde Coyote, Paul Theoux, Peter Matthieson, Matk Twain, and many more.
Great choices you have there! I’m a big fan of each, especially Cahill.
I think my adventure role models are people I know in real life, my friends who have gone on amazing trips and inspire me!
Good call! This makes it a lot easier to collaborate and share adventurous ideas.
Yep, you and Guapo are very inspirational!
Thank you! I really appreciate that!
