For you, life isn’t complete without thrills, spills, and adrenaline rushes. Heck, if you could run to Mars and back you'd probably be the first to do it by now. You're not afraid to go after what you want in life and will go to great heights to get there...literally!
If you were a celebrity adventurer you’d be … Ed Stafford!
Here’s a man who doesn’t shy from a challenge. Ed made his name by becoming the first person to walk the entire 4,435-mile length of the Amazon River, a grueling journey that took him 860 days to complete.
But he didn’t stop there. The star of numerous Discovery TV shows, he has been willingly marooned on a desert island, left for dead in the most hostile environments imaginable, and spent 60 days on the streets of Britain, in winter, without food, money, or shelter in order to raise awareness of the challenges faced by homeless people today. What a legend.
And so are you. Just like Ed, you’ll take on any adventure, no challenge is too small, and you live for adrenalin. Climbing sheer mountain faces is brilliant. Trekking through sleet and rain is an ideal vacation. Swimming with sharks, where do I sign up?
Whether it’s life or the great outdoors, your spirit of adventure is as limitless as your imagination, and you’re not afraid to jump head in and achieve what mere mortals wouldn’t dare to dream.
