What is Expedition?
Why oh why oh why? That is the question. I don’t know about you, but I want to live in a world where people can pursue their dreams freely and be able to sustainably live. I am the biggest supporter of follow your passions, however I’m also a realist. We need a way to monetize our passions. My biggest passion in life is adventure sports and my dream is to be able to fill everyday of my life with adventure.
An expedition is literally “a journey or voyage undertaken by a group of people with a particular purpose, especially that of exploration, scientific research, or war.” In our case it’s both an adventure expedition and also life expedition. I’ll be giving tips, tricks, articles and resources on how to become a professional adventure guide so you can live a life of travel and adventure.
Expedition is for adventure seekers who want to get paid to go to beautiful places that regular people pay insane amounts of cash to get to, learn numerous skills to put to use in other jobs, hone leadership skills, and experience outdoors in nature for a job!
