What is the most adventurous thing that you have ever done? That is normally a question I ask new people I meet for the first time to see if they are adventurous and at what level. I found that adventure means different things to different people. For me adventure means getting out of my comfort zone, trying new things, meeting new people, travelling to new places in addition to the adrenaline-pumping activities like motorbike riding, jumping out of planes, surfing ...

I am starving. The schnitzel is so big it hangs off the plate. You need a friend to help you eat it. It's like the chicken is on steroids. Whenever a mate is over from interstate we always take them for the schnitzel challenge ...
