Escapades - So what does this word actually mean


Have you always been a bit curious about the name of our website - AdventureEscapades.co.za? Well, we thought we would try an enlighten you with some definitions we found online.

From FreeDictionary.com
  • (Noun) - An adventurous, unconventional act or undertaking
  • a mischievous act or adventure [French]
  • a wild and exciting undertaking (not necessarily lawful) - we like this one :)
  • any carefree episode
  • an activity that diverts or amuses or stimulates
From Merriam-webster.com
  • a usually adventurous action that runs counter to approved or conventional conduct
FreeDictionary.com also had a reference to a Sexcapade, which is not quite what we had in mind when we were having our brainstorming session. We fancy that there are enough other sites on the web to meet the demand for this extreme adventure :)
