An adventure every day…

You don’t need to be wealthy, or take a sabbatical, to go on an amazing adventure. Morwhenna Woolcock explains how she has found time to fit adventures around her daily life, and shares three ideas that anyone can try


Adventure is everywhere – if you know where to look for it. You don’t need to travel to remote countries, take a year off work, have lots of money or be super fit. It’s more about changing your perspective and looking at things creatively. This year, I’m visiting a different UK island a month, exploring its relationship with the people it has inspired and creating an artwork in response. This will be my third creative adventure, and one I’m fitting in around a job and life in general. You can do this, too.

My idea was massive to start with. I discovered there are more than 3,000 islands around the UK – 267 of which are inhabited – and I wanted to visit them all. But, it was too big. I ended up with a list of 60 islands that I found curious and enticing, but it was still too big. So, I thought about how I could create a year-long project, without having to take a year off work, and getting the adventure to wrap around my life. I needed to start small; I chose 12 islands and would visit one a month. So what if I can’t explore them all in one go? I’m starting; the essence of the idea is still there, only now it’s achievable.
