After the ‘Capture the Colour‘ photo competition, there is a brand new competition open for bloggers that I am excited to take part in. Southern Cross Travel Insurance have just started their ‘What does adventure mean to you?’ competition. They would like to know from bloggers what adventure means to them and all you need to do is post a photo collage on your blog that sums up the word ‘adventure’ in your life, along with a paragraph explaining what adventure means to you (more info can be found here). The overall winner will receive $2,000AUD towards their adventures, but there are also plenty of other prizes up for grabs as well!

So what does adventure mean to me? You may have gathered by now that although I take part in plenty of adventurous things, my adventures are usually somewhat linked to mishaps. From getting Acute Mountain Sickness climbing Cotopaxi, to being attacked by vampire bats in the Amazon, to getting hypothermia hiking to Everest Base Camp, to being eaten a life by leeches in the Cambodian jungle - I could go on and on. However that doesn’t stop me from seeking out new adventures. Adventures are a big part of my life, otherwise where do you find the fun in life? So adventure means many different things to me, including:

climbing cotopaxi start

Scaling new heights

Preah Vihear

Exploring treasures off the beaten path

cu chi

Doing something uncomfortable

trekking in Mondulkiti

Testing your limits

mountain lodge everest base camp trek

Travelling to places nobody knows about

Trying out new things


Eating something that scares you

And embracing new cultures

I now get to ask two other adventurous bloggers what adventure means to them and I nominate Becki from Backpacker Becki and Ari from Beyond Blighty.

I’d also love to know what adventure means to my readers! So guys and gals, what do you think? Let me know in the comment section below.

      Thanks Stacey! Yes, they scared me too. I was flapping my arms around like a little girl before I finally managed to eat the first leg. You don’t need to be nominated to take part. Anybody can enter the competition.

  5. Those spiders, Tammy - absolutely not!! I had to hurry and scroll past them. Eating those is nothing short of an adventure.

      They were quite disgusting to look at I have to admit. I am really scared of spiders, so it was a huge deal to me to even touch them, let alone eat them. Luckily my friend Pete from Hecktic Travels showed me how it is done and seen him doing it, made it a little bit less scary. 🙂

  6. Oh my god I could never eat those spiders!! haha You’re a very adventurous lady indeed! 🙂 You seem to have had an amazing array of adventures so far. Long may they continue and best of luck in the competition!

      He he, they were quite disgusting actually. I hope I can have many more adventures too, but I’ll probably give tarantulas a miss in future.

  7. That last photo is…just…wow. Love the angle and composition of it.

      Ha ha, thanks Michelle. Once the lid was on that hole it was a bit freaky actually, as it was pitch black and I couldn’t see what was around me! Good luck with your entry!

  9. Wow. That’s fun adventure right there!

  10. I’ll match any adventure. Anywhere. Anytime. 44 years of documented adventure worldwide. However it must have elements of danger.

      Good on you Hal. The more adventures I undertake the braver I get too, despite some things being dangerous. That`s the fun part, right?
