Despite skyrocketing gas prices, adventure travel is the fastest growing segment of the travel and tourism industries, Advocate reporter Aprill Brandon found.
"It seems families and individuals are foregoing Disney World and instead heading out to the African wilderness for a safari," Aprill said. "Or going white water rafting. Or building homes in foreign countries. Or taking an expedition cruise to Antartica."
Sounds interesting -- interesting enough that Aprill began work on a story about locals who travel for adventure.
"I'm looking to interview anyone in the area who has gone on an adventure vacation or mission trip to interview for the story," she said.
If you are an adventure traveler, or know someone who is, contact Aprill at 361-580-6514, firstname.lastname@example.org or post to this blog.
