Jamey Glasnovic

For travel writer Jamey Glasnovic adventure has always been a slippery concept to nail down. Is it high risk high reward type activities? Is foreign and exotic a prerequisite? Is it something else entirely? To support his new book, A Few Feet Short, An Uncommon Journey to Everest, Glasnovic examines his relationship with adventure and motivation, while reflecting on his 3 month journey to the Nepal Himalaya in 2016.
