This time around I wanted to throw a shout-out to some lesser-known alternative adventure folk who really have a lot to offer. I’ve compiled a list of GoHobo’s favourite go-tos when it comes to adventure inspiration. Whether you’re living in a van down by the river, flying across the ocean to explore new cultures, or hiking in your own backyard; these people will surely scratch your itchy feet (that’s a real expression, I swear).
