adventurous person

SAMPLE ANSWER – One

I have a friend whom I met in one of the trekking trips that I took to Rishikesh. We were part of the same team and so were most of the times having fun together. It was there that I came to know about how he left his 9 to 5 job, to do what he loves the most, travelling.

Arjun, my friend is a traveler and travels to new places and visits all the extreme locations. So, he has been to Ladakh, Rajisthan, Rishikesh and has done almost all the adventurous sports. But, what fascinated me more about him, apart from these adventurous sports is the fact that he had imbibed in him the feeling of adventure. He believed that it is not just about doing those exciting things which we find exciting but adventure is just moving a bit away from the comfort zone.

And it is in this way that you can actually live your life in the most exciting way. Meeting him then and over a period of time, I realized that in some way he was not just adventurous but a person who lived every moment of the life as the largest one. So, when everyone went to the pool for swimming, he went to oceans. When everyone was busy watching movies, he was creating stories. For him it was never adventure and in some way he made me realized it as well, it is about giving everything to this one moment.


SAMPLE ANSWER – Two

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.
