Original Adventure Travellers

A different traveller has emerged in the current generation that are looking for more than just merely going sight-seeing. The new travelers are using their journeys to find where they belong in the world both physically and spiritually by immersing themselves in different cultures.

Some use it to change their own perspectives and yet others use it as an opportunity to effect positive changes in the cultures they visit. But you do not need to have a mission to embark on your own journey. The following stories will provide a glimpse at what some of these new travelers are doing when they travel. Travelling is no longer limited to a matter of weeks spent away from a job, but has to many replaced the job with an occupation more interesting and fulfilling.

Many of the reasons why people travel today are similar to the reasons why both men and women embarked on extensive journeys at the turn of the 19th century. One of the main reasons is that they want firsthand knowledge and experience of the world in which they live. Often the modern day adventure traveller more than likely carries a pocket-sized digital camera, a credit card, cell phone and even a laptop computer.

Travels on commercial airlines, on buses, by train or in a car. Sleeps in hotels, pensions or hostels occasionally if not camping out in a high-tech tent with a wind-proof stove, goose-down sleeping bag and Perrier water from a super-lightweight titanium flask. Gets up in the morning and puts on a pair of Addidas Cuzco hiking boots after pulling on an Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirt and slipping on a Helly Hansen Helly Tech waterproof, breathable textile jacket with several high-energy bars in the pockets.

Most of the travellers adventure has been in waiting for UPS to show up at the door with the latest must have travel gear, so when its time to travel, it is a wonder that this traveller has not run out of cash and been forced to just stay home by the telly and watch the Discovery Channel. But that is not to say that all modern day adventure travellers fit this description. Many take on tough challenges, although not as extreme as their counterparts near the turn of the century.

Arnold Henry Savage Landor, Isabella Lucy Bird and Thomas Stevens were not modern day adventure travellers, but saw and recorded more people and their customs on more continents than most modern day travellers - and did the majority of their travels on steamships, horseback or on foot. Read their travel books that are free e-book downloads in a choice of formats at the bottom of each of their pages.
