Lots of people like to include at least one daring adventure on their vacation, and GoNOMAD has gathered outdoor adventure stories from all over the world. More and more of our reader's trips include either a hike, a paddle, some extreme sports or another way to get some exercise.  Getting outside has become a big part of why we travel.
