Scott’s Adventures

What is adventure? An adventure is similar to an exploration or a feat of endurance, but an adventure has the connotation of being poorly planned. In a way, all of life is a poorly planned adventure, where we play with the mysteries, dance on the edge of the unknown and push the boundaries of what it means to be human.

These are stories of Scott’s adventures through life, like riding a bicycle around the world, being the Cultural Ambassador to Argentina and…  hopefully, many more, big and small. I invite you along for the ride as I explore the inner and outer world and learn to become a better person.

Adventure Updates

There are many steps to completing any adventure. 

Below are stories from the road, and some stories about stories. Yes, writing a book is an adventure and a hard one — it requires one to bare their soul, which I think is harder than facing the bears. 

There aren’t as many stories here as you might expect. That’s because when my adventures graduate, they get promoted to a book or short story. I delete all the old blog posts — close to a thousand to date — so that my readers can just focus on the best of the best. 

Sunspots on a Jamaican sunset

The real Jamaica

Another mis-adventure. I’m more of a misadventurer than an adventurer. Though I may look like a bumbling fool, I love the surprise of leaping before I look. However, often I get much more than I bargained for as I do in this Jamaican adventure.

Archaeology dig Scott Stoll 20220730

Archaeologist for day and a lifetime!

I went on an archaeological dig uncovering the history of the Hopewell Native American Culture. The dig also dug some memories of my great-grandmother and old childhood fear that I finally get to lay to rest.

The Tree of Lost Soles

The perfect vacation versus the unexpected adventure. It’s the irony of being a travel author: on the one hand, I want an adventure; on the other, I want safety and comfort and lots of umbrella drinks and fish tacos.
