Is there a single (non-colloquial) noun/word which describes a person who seeks/is looking for thrills, excitement or 'kicks'?
For context, I am an English mother tongue translator (Italian to English) and I am currently considering using the word 'adventurer'. The surrounding sentence goes like this (after translation):
The Festival provides a dynamic platform for contemporary photographers, visual storytellers, knowledge seekers and adventurers.
The LITERAL translation from Italian would be ('cercatore di emozioni'): seekers of excitement (thrills) but I prefer 'adventurer' as a one-word option that encompasses the overall meaning of the Italian phrase in this specific context. If anyone can think of a better word I'd love to hear it!
