1001 Ways To Live Wild

1001 Ways To Live Wild by Barbara Ann Kipfer – Book Review

Are you interested in exploring fun, creative ways to add a little excitement to the ordinary routine of your life?

I believe it’s important to find ways to step outside of our comfort zones and learn how to recapture our sense of child-like wonder, to add adventure into our lives, and discover new ways to see the world through fresh eyes!

If you agree, but find it challenging to come up with ideas to spice up your life, then 1001 Ways To Live Wild – A Little Book Of Everyday Adventures by Barbara Ann Kipfer is exactly what you need to get your creative juices flowing.

1001 Ways To Live Wild is a delightful book filled with 1001 serendipitous ideas that will help you to turn every day of your life into an exciting adventure!

Here’s a sampling of some of the ideas you’ll find inside:

  • In search of fun? Why not ride a merry-go-round or illustrate your days in a cartoon strip!
  • Looking for something a little more daring? Why not ride a mechanical bull in a tavern or launch a Kickstarter campaign?
  • In need of some solitude? Why not such as pick up a book that has been sitting on your shelf for too long and read the whole thing?
  • Looking for an adventure to share with someone else? Why not teach a kid how to ride a bike!

No matter which idea you choose, you’ll learn something new about yourself.

Whatever you do, adventure awaits you – but 1001 Ways To Live Wild is more than just a colorfully illustrated list of random things to do!

Inside 1001 Ways To Live Wild you’ll also find inspiring quotes and Wild Lists – special compilations of activities such as Wild Ways To Spend Your Lunch Hour, Adventurous Walks To Take and Children’s Activities To Do As An Adult.

As Rolf Potts reminds us in one of the beautifully illustrated quotes in the book:

The secret of adventure… is not to carefully seek it out but to travel in such a way that it finds you. To do this, you first need to overcome the protective habits of home and open yourself up to unpredictability.

1001 Ways To Live Wild is not only a book that you want to own in order to transform each and every day of your life into an exciting adventure – it’s a book that you want to stock up on to give to each of your friends!

If you want to put a smile on your face and the faces of everyone around you, then add 1001 Ways To Live Wild to your must read and must do list!

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Thanks for the inspiration. I think I will check out this book, too. I may be on a path of simplifying my life right now, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t space for something new and exciting.
