5 Books to Awaken your Sense of Adventure

Sometimes, the spark you’re looking for in your normal life is nestled between a few crisp pages of your favorite book.

Did you ever want to go on an adventure outside your subdivision in Cavite? Sometimes you find yourself stuck in a rut, going through the daily routines, and not feeling inspired. You want to get out of your comfort zone to maybe enjoy a little, but you are not really sure how to. Other times, you get caught up with your work and need that extra motivation to just go ahead and book that flight for a new experience.

It is hard-to-find inspiration nowadays, specially amidst the pandemic wherein most of us feel like we are trapped and limited on what we can do, when we can do it and even where to do it. Finding inspiration requires something to kickstart that burning passions within you to finally start functioning and producing whatever the task at hand is.

If You Are in the Very Beginning of Thinking of Starting an Epic Journey or Embarking on an Adventure Story, Non Fiction or Fiction Books Are a Perfect Cure! Here Are Our 5 Picks to Awaken Your Sense of Adventure:

Another book about finding the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, this fictional radio series was adapted into the “increasingly inaccurately named Hitchhiker’s Trilogy,” as the series actually consists of five books. The first book in the “trilogy” starts off by introducing the main protagonist, Arthur Dent, right before the Earth is destroyed by the Vogons, an alien species. Through this first installment, Arthur discovers that the Earth was a supercomputer that was designed to discover what the Question to the Answer of the Meaning of Life is.

3. Between A Rock and A Hard Place by Aron Ralston
