3⟩ How much little money can you exist on?

A few adventurers are rich, but remember the outliers. Most adventurers are not rich. Consider also the fairly reliable correlation that richer adventurers live less adventurously than the poorer dirt bags living out of vans but climbing 300 days every year. Think about what you want. If you want to earn well, you would be wise to get a different job and just spend some of your earnings on adventures. I know plenty of less intelligent, less driven people who earn many times what I do. And besides, wanting to live adventurously is almost the antithesis of wanting to be rich.

For you, adventure might consist of extreme sports, outdoor endurance activities, or exploration.

☛ If you are interested in scientific adventures, study biology or other related life sciences. Chemistry will keep you in the lab and on the computer, while marine biology will get you into the field.

☛ If you are interested in travel, hospitality and tourism programs would be a smart investment. Study a foreign language as an added bonus in marketing yourself down the road.

☛ If you are interested in outdoor sports or other activities that involve being in nature, ecology programs with all sorts of specialties are available all over the country. Talk to an academic adviser to find out what is right for you.

☛ After graduating, you can apply for Fulbright Fellowship or other grant program to fund a research or teaching experience in another country. They field all manner of different project ideas, from teaching music forms.

☛ If college is not in the cards for you, never fear. Keeping yourself informed about your intended adventurous field does not necessarily need to be any more complicated than getting a library card and doing the work yourself. Developing a good set of skills, like videography or photography can likewise be a particularly useful skill. Someone needs to know how to operate those high-definition video cameras in the arctic.

One great way to have a guaranteed and semi-organized experience abroad for up to two years is to sign up for the Peace Corps. This can be a good way to pay back student loans, develop the skills necessary to travel, and build connections in other places. It's also an extremely satisfying way to give back, as you will be participating in humanitarian aid of the most necessary sort.

Combine Peace Corps work with your own side travels over the course of your time there to make the most of it. Take a weekend to jaunt up to the Mediterranean and explore the cuisine, or to check out the scenic Scandinavian hiking trails. It will leave you rejuvenated and ready to get back to the hard work you will be doing.

If you have got the time and the resources, your church or you school may organize yearly trips abroad that will give you some of the flavor of the kind of adventure you seek. Even if it is only for a couple weeks and even if the work is hard, building houses, you are earning your way and building the necessary skills. Any adventurous job you will apply for down the road will look on this kind of experience warmly.

This can be especially great for anyone with an interest in humanitarian work, though you will be at the mercy of a travel group, which may end up on the touristy side of things. Plan side trips and create your own fun.

Recreation workers, trail guides, scuba instructors all have salaried positions you can get with the proper experience and certifications. The experience you have gleaned from traveling abroad, adventuring on your own, or studying in your desired field should open up a variety of options doing the type of thing you want to do. Get a job with the state at your favorite park, or start your own business teaching kayaking lessons.

If you are getting paid to teach other people about what you love, every day can be an adventure. Get a job at a ski resort teaching snowboarding lessons, or work your way up at an aquarium. You do not necessarily have to be a marine biologist to work with animals.

20⟩ Why should you document your adventures?

Write about your adventures. Consider updating people about your adventurous experiences via a blog, websites, or other social media networks. Film your exploits. The best way to get other people interested in your adventures and to get your name out there as an adventurer in need of funding is to market yourself and your particular set of talents.

Selling freelance photography or your videos is one of the best ways to get a foot in the door for a full time job with a publication or media service. Got great pictures of the great horned owls you saw on a hike? Try sending them to magazines. If you have got a great story about your time in Istanbul that needs to be told, try and get it published. If it is marketable, you may get a job offer.
