Merriam-Webster defines “adventure” as “an undertaking usually involving danger and unknown risks” or “an exciting or remarkable experience.”

We’re sure you have lots of adventures. And we love to see people sharing their outdoor adventures on social media.

But we think you should know that Britney Spears was having truly epic adventures long before the age of Instagram, #vanlife, and third wave coffee — even before the “photo-of-my-back-as-I-look-at-a-pretty-landcape” shot. (Actually, she may have invented that one herself.)

We believe credit should be given where credit is due. #Authentic

Britney Spears Basically Invented Adventure

Here is proof that your outdoor adventures are all inspired by Britney Spears.

“I used to think I had the answers to everything, but now I know that life doesn’t always go my way.”

“There is no need to protect me. It’s time that I learn to face up to this on my own.”

“But if you look at me closely, you will see it in my eyes.”

“This girl will always find her way.”

We hope you keep having lots of #adventures. But remember, the outdoors aren’t just there for the sake of our Instagram following. Wherever you go, please make sure to follow “leave no trace” practices, and maybe leave the phone in the car, sometimes. Also, listen to some Britney Spears, because we love her and we know you still kinda do, too.
