50+ Adventure Ideas for Midlife Women

Looking for adventure ideas so you can ignite more fun in your life?

You’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, I share a list of over fifty questions to ask yourself, so you find it easier to come up with plenty of adventurous things to do. 

Why don’t I just share a list of adventure ideas? Because we all have different likes and dislikes, resources, and restraints. We also all live around the world. If I simply listed ideas, many of these would be irrelevant to you. 

Instead, I share a list of questions to ask yourself, to stimulate more exciting and applicable adventure ideas. Use these questions to come up with the best bucket list ideas for you!

To make these easier to work through, I’ve split this list into several categories: adventure travel ideas, experiences that could become an adventure, local adventure ideas, activities and adventurous things to do, and personal development journeys.
