Wednesdays -- perhaps more affectionately referred to as "Hump Day" -- are my favorite day to start planning my next adventure. There's just something about choosing to see the week half full and harnessing the opportunity to do something great with the freedom that comes on Friday evening and the beauty beyond.
I often scour Twitter and Instagram for a spark, then shoot on over to Google Maps to mark out my weekend assault (which reminds me I'm going with a few friends to find Life In Death Valley this weekend...post to follow).
But I've found that to truly capture the essence of adventure you can't forget to pluck the heartstrings. If these videos don't spark your wanderlust, nothing will.
Without further ado, here's 5 Awesome Adventure Videos to Get You Through Hump Day.

Happy Hump Day!
