So what is adventure?
18, Jan, 2019
Alpkiteer Anna Wells posed herself the question and asked some fiends to help find the answer
After qualifying as a doctor and trying to settle into her new career Anna found it a constant battle to settle properly. After a couple of years she took a summer out to think, realising that sometimes everything is not Picture Perfect. "It's kind of hard to accept after 11 years investment that maybe its not the right future, both from a personal feeling of failure and a sense I am letting down family and others that supported me. How far should you push something when it's making you so unhappy?"
During her step back from medicine Anna's had a active year between Scotland and the Alps, focusing on her deep passion of the mountains.
Pulling together some of her own experiences along with the help from her outdoor friends, she made this short film for the BMC Women in Adventure film competition. She asks the question; What is Adventure?
