Yesterday my mom described my niece as "adventuresome" for her plans to travel soon to Alaska. Mom then wondered if this or "adventurous" was the right word to use.
"Adventuresome" is defined as "willing to undertake or seek out new and daring enterprises", while "adventurous" has a definition of "fraught with danger". An Alaska trip would then be best described as "adventuresome", since danger isn't really part of the picture so much as just trying something new and different and far away.
