An adventure is an “unusual, exciting, often dangerous experience or activity .” Synonyms for adventure are exploit, escapade and deed.
An adventure can be fun and less dangerous. There are many adventures, and no one definition fits all. What does this mean? Check out my thoughts on adventures:

Marriage, moving to a different town, or having a child are all exciting life events. Life events may not be considered an adventure if they are part of your normal life or even expected to happen in the next phase.
Many of you will be expected to attend college, marry and start a family. It sounds boring typing all that, but it is not boring! Your life is an adventure
