Our philosophy
RealAdventures really does believe in it's philosophy, "Life's An Adventure, Live It!". Lying on the beach and working on your tan is an adventure in relaxation and reflection. Traveling to another country and experiencing new foods, people and languages is an adventure in culture, history and traditions. Bungee jumping and rock climbing are adventures in adrenaline.

Some websites focus on extreme adventures, others focus on romantic Bed & Breakfasts, and still others focus on a particular destination. But most travelers enjoy a variety of experiences and destinations on their vacations. Is there anyone who only goes Mountain Biking but never goes to the beach? Would people only vacation in Florida but not go to Europe given the chance?

Some people seem to know exactly where they want to go and what they want to do. But we think that most people spend weeks or months thinking about and planning a vacation. They consider all the options of when, where, how much, and with whom. They get ideas and look up destinations and their interests on the web, talk to their friends, read an article or two and sleep on it.

There is so much wonder and beauty in this world, there are so many diverse cultures and there is so much to explore. That's why RealAdventures was created : to help fellow travelers seek out new adventures and experiences whatever their interests and wherever they may be in life. We provide a valuable resource of travel information, ideas and options to help travelers plan exciting adventures.

What we are not
As mentioned above, most travelers take weeks or months to consider and plan out a vacation. They might keep an idea for a really exotic trip in the back of their mind for years, something that they hope to do 'someday' when time, budget and other commitments allow. Purchasing the airline ticket or booking the accommodation is the final part of the planning process, the transactional part.

Please note that RealAdventures is not a transactional site. We are not a travel agency or tour company and do not sell travel packages, make reservations for accommodations or book airline tickets. This enables us to be objective in the services and companies that are listed on our site.

RealAdventures does not receive a commission for promoting any of the products or services on this site. We are not interested in affiliate programs that provide x% commission - it is impossible to track and verify each and every account in 126 countries, currencies and languages.
