To have an adventure means different things to many of us.
But as more than 1.2bn of us are expected to traverse the globe in 2017, we're clearly in hot pursuit of it - whether stoking it in our own backyards or deciding to throw the dice in search of those lifelong memories.
As Chief Adventure Officer at Ker and Downy Africa, Lee Kelsall puts it, “People travel to find themselves, to push their boundaries and to create memories that last." We chatted with him about this trend as well as rounded up these 17 great adventures to try in 2017.
Anje Rautenbach has been brave enough to Couchsurf - and her 101 guide will ensure you avoid pushing boundaries in the wrong way. But a unique way to create epic memories for a lifetime is Shalini Tewari's travels across Latin America to learn as many dance styles as possible - read about it here.
