I once read the book, "Voices From The Summit: The Worlds Great Mountaineers on The Future of Climbing". It is a collection of interviews of some of the worlds greatest climbers, such as Sir Edmund Hillary, Reinhold Messner, and Yvon Chouinard. The conclusion to the book, though, is that adventure requires the exploration of parts yet unknown at the risk of ones life. However, for those of us without the desire to risk our lives in the pursuit of adventure, trying new things and seeing new places is an excellent alternative.
