Intrepid : The Kind of Traveler I Aspire to Be
I is for…Intrepid – The Kind of Traveler I Aspire to Be
What does Intrepid Mean?
- fearless; adventurous (often used for rhetorical or humorous effect).“our intrepid reporter”
I don’t mean be an idiot. Always be aware of your surroundings and any dangerous activity that may be going on where you are at. There’s a difference in being cautious and being fearful. Fearful people tend to say no to a lot of things and miss out on so much. I can’t and won’t be one of those people. I like to say I’ll try anything once. I’m sure everyone has their limits to that and I’m sure I’ll find my limit one day but for now, I’ll say I’ll try anything.
The more adrenaline-pumping the activity the better – in my opinion. I want to go Great White Shark Cage Diving, jump out of airplanes, and eat some really bizarre foods. As much as I enjoy laying on a beach and taking it easy, I’m the type that needs to constantly be moving and doing something exciting.
Get out My Comfort Zone
Just because I say I’ll do anything, doesn’t mean I don’t have fears. I’m terrified of being up in front of people. I’m terrified of spiders, but if I let that dictate my life than I wouldn’t be traveling anywhere or thinking about eating a tarantula in Cambodia. I hate doing things wrong – I think that’s called a perfectionist – so I’ve not done things before because I didn’t want to suck. Well, it’s time to embrace the suck.
What kind of traveler do you tend to be? Fearless and adventurous or cautious and timid? Do you think there’s such a thing as being too fearless?
