Publisher's Summary

Enthusiastic, pleasingly madcap Geographical

Adventure something that's new and exhilarating, outside your comfort zone. Adventures change you and how you see the world, and all you need is an open mind, bags of enthusiasm and boundless curiosity.

So whats a microadventure? Its close to home, cheap, simple, short and 100 percent guaranteed to refresh your life. A microadventure takes the spirit of a big adventure and squeezes it into a day or even a few hours.

The point of a microadventure is that you don't need lots of time and money to meet a new challenge. This practical guide is filled with ideas for microadventures for you to experience on your own or with friends and family, plus tips and advice on safety and kit.

Whether its sleeping on a hilltop or going for a wild swim, cycling a lap of the Isle of Wight or walking home for Christmas, it's time you discovered something new about yourself and the world outside your window. Adventure is everywhere, every day, and it is up to us to find it.

Great book, highly recommended!

Excellent book to encourage and show people how to get out there and enjoy simple adventures wherever they may be in the world, proving you do not need to be rugged and hardcore, wealthy or even have lots of time.

You have the same 168 hours in a week as anyone else. If you watch TV you have time!
