By Lois Friedland:
Adventure travel encourages you to stretch your mind or your body--and often both--while having a wonderful time. It doesn't matter whether you are hiking up a 14,000-foot-high mountain in Colorado, swimming with dolphins in the Caribbean or floating over an African veld in a hot air balloon. What counts is the new ways you are seeing the world, making friends in foreign places and how you are pursuing your own definition of adventure travel. This site will make it easier for you to find and follow the adventure travels of your dreams.
