Poverty due to lack of jobs
This is the main reason people envisage going on adventures in other countries. People get frustrated because of the poverty and lack of jobs in the country. Hunger burn their spirits down and they loose the sense of reasoning and only look on ways to better their conditions. They see others go and succeed so they believe they can try too.
Since the beginning of crisis in Cameroon, people have been displaced from town to town and others have sought refuge other countries. They prefer to be eaten by wild animals trying to survive than to be shattered down by bullets.
Love for adventure
Some people choose to go on adventure not because they wish to better their lives but because they actually love adventuring. They just love taking risks and facing new challenges in their lives so they envisage going on adventure to experience what it is all about.
While some people embark on adventure in search of jobs, others go because they just envy those who are there. Some people have stable jobs in Cameroon with a family but will choose to go on adventure because they have seen their friends do so and become wealthier.
