Describe an adventurous person who you know.
You should say:
who the person is
how you know this person
what this person does that is adventurous
and explain why you think this person likes to take risks.
I think the most adventurous person I have ever known has to be my brother. It was in the last year of his Bachelors that he realized his flair for travelling. When everyone was looking for jobs, he decided to travel. Earning some money through freelancing he started travelling. It was in those travels that he picked up day jobs, to let him survive and let the journey going.
It was after one long year that I met him and the stories that he told were amazing. He went hitch hiking from Dehradun to Kanyakumari, taking with him an initial amount of only 1000 rupees. So, there were times when he took lifts, did jobs to let him earn some money and mixed with local people. In the entire journey he was able to learn the basic language for almost 5 languages and can now very well interact with us using those language. He made friends and there are people he goes to meet even now.
When I asked if he did any adventurous sports, he replied saying he did lived an adventurous life. And this was something that did strike me.
Knowing absolutely nothing about what can happen the next moment and then having the faith that everything will work out fine is something that he has learnt from this trip. Although he has taken up a job, but the adventure in him is still alive, the reason why he takes trips every six months.完全不知道下一刻会发生什么，然后相信一切都会好起来，这是他从这次旅行中学到的东西。虽然他已经接受了一份工作，但他的冒险精神仍然存在，这就是他每六个月要旅行一次的原因。
Ok, I’m going to describe an adventurous person I know. Well, if I’m gonna be totally honest with you, I don’t really know that many adventurous people, so I’ve had to rack my brains a little to think of someone, and one person that came to mind is a guy called Tom, who’s in his late fifties right now, but lives life as if he was in his early twenties.
As for how I know him, well basically, he used to be a colleague of my dad’s, and since they were also good friends, we would often invite him over for lunch or dinner at weekends.
And regarding why I think he’s adventurous, well, I suppose there are quite a number of reasons, one of which would be that he’s not afraid to take risks, because after he left my dad’s company, he went on to start up his own company, even though he didn’t have that much experience. Unfortunately, it didn’t do too well, but that didn’t stop him from trying again in another industry!
So that would be on the work front, and when it comes to travelling, he always likes going to places which are off the beaten track, because he finds them more interesting, and he will never go on holiday to the same place twice!
So finally, with regard to whether or not I can learn anything from him, well, thinking about it, I’d say there are a number of things, for example, he’s a guy that lives life to the fullest, and from looking at the things he’s done, I’ve kind of seen how to really enjoy life and live every day as if it were my last. Finally, I would add that Tom has not been afraid to try anything new, no matter how old he was, a prime example being that he started to learn windsurfing, which is a very physical sport, when he was in his mid-forties. So that’s taught me that age should not hold you back in anything, and if you want to try something new, then just go for it. As the old saying goes, "variety is the spice of life".
Ok, I think I’ve covered pretty much everything, so thanks for listening.
