The unknown can be fearful; not knowing the outcome whether good or bad can be a test that many will take to prove your strengths and weaknesses.

Drug lord’s, drug king’s, ceo of crime, are some of the names given to powerful drug cartel leaders. There are many such criminals throughout history that has gained these titles but a few have been so powerful and acquired so much wealth that they have gained widespread infamy. Pablo Escobar was one. From the 1970s until his death in 1993, Escobar was considered by many to be the most powerful drug lord in the world. With a net worth that earned him a spot on Forbes magazine’s Richest Man in the World list.

Though his family came from subtle means Pablo always desired to be powerful and wealthy. Though his original ambition was to become President of Columbia, the life of crime seemed to suit Pablo more so than politics (Biography.com, 2017) During the Marlborough wars in Colombia, Escobar portrayed an eminent role in smuggling cigarettes and the skills he learned then would help aid him in becoming much more than a common smuggler (Biography.com, 2017).

Exploration is portrayed through “Alice.” “Alice” is a curious, young girl who lives in the Victorian times, she loves exploring and has lots of energy. The first thing “Alice” explores is the “rabbit hole.” But “Alice” wouldn’t have explored the “rabbit hole,” if it had not have been for the “White Rabbit.” The “White Rabbit” is in some ways the most important character, because without him, “Alice” wouldn’t have gone into the “rabbit hole” because she didn’t know where it was or what it is, but because of the “White Rabbit” runs to the hole, wearing a waistcoat and saying “I’m late,” attracted “Alice’s” attention, so “Alice” goes down the “rabbit hole,” then “Alice” Explores “Wonderland” before waking up and finding out that it was all a dream.

So as a teacher of Adventure education you will be focusing on 3 main areas when directing a class of students. One, you must teach students to learn the professional and technical skills to compete competently and safely in these specific environments.

Adventure travel is a type of tourism involving exploration or travel with risk and it potentially requires specialized skills and physical exertion. Adventure tourism has grown in recent decades, as tourists they prefer to experience different kind of vacations.
Adventure tourism is an outdoor leisure activity that generally takes place in an unusual, exotic, remote or wilderness setting, sometimes involving some form of unconventional means of transportation and tending to be associated with low or high levels of physical activity.

According to the U.S. based Adventure Travel Trade Association, adventure travel may be any tourist activity, including two of the following three components: a physical activity, a cultural exchange or interaction and engagement with nature.
The above citation briefly describes the experience of adventure traveler.
