Travel Advisory: Experiencing ‘Spirit of Adventure’ Can Trigger a Severe Desire to Book a Trip to a Faraway Land

Mike David’s Multimedia Sensation Heads Into Uncharted Territory After 14 Sold-out Seasons

Imagine a map, frayed around the edges, travel-stained and rain-soaked but with a conspicuous spot in the middle, devoid of any markings. Within that spot lies the unknown wilds where no foot has previously tread. It is in that space that Mike David finds meaning: in his travels, yes, but more so in his work.

David’s multimedia show, “Spirit of Adventure,” is a foray into a place no artist has gone before. It is a beautiful experiment of combined mediums of photography, storytelling and live world music that take visitors on a spellbinding journey through 8 countries.

High-definition images tower above you on a giant screen, the verdant greens of jungles and cerulean blues of oceans displayed in vivid detail with the latest Blu-ray technology. At the same time, melodies drift up from the stage, played expertly by world musicians who are masters of their craft. Guzheng and drums, ouds and guitars combine with ethereal vocals to bring the cultures of the lands you are stepping into to life. Throughout it all, the Mike David tells stories of his travels, offering personal insights into some of the Earth’s most distant lands and their inhabitants.

As a child fascinated with maps and distant lands, David always had an underlying sense of adventure. As a successful business entrepreneur, his work life allowed him the opportunity to fulfill his dreams of world travel, now at 45 countries and counting. Along the way, he became fascinated with the cultures of the places he visited, collecting their stories and music and taking photographs of everything he saw.

In December 2001 an idea hit: What if he could share the images, stories and music with others? “Spirit of Adventure” was an instant success. It has evolved continually over the years and has sold out 14 of its past 18 seasons. David continues to travel, bringing his passion for the world home to the United States.

Mike David resides in Westminster, Colo., with his wife, Connie, when he is not out traveling the globe.
