I'd like to ask about the meaning of the phrase "delicious sense of danger walking on the world" in the following passage.
When Jopale was a young boy, disaster struck. The trade winds strengthened abruptly, and in a single year the Continent drifted west almost one thousand kilometers. Cities and entire homelands were plunged into darkness. Millions of free citizens saw their crops die and their homelands starve. The only rational response was to move away, living as immigrants on other lands, or as refugees, or in a few cases -- like Port of Krauss -- remaining where they were, in the darkness, making the very best of the tragedy.
To a young boy, the disaster seemed like enormous good fun. There was excitement in the air, a delicious sense of danger walking on the world.
Does the phrase "delicious sense of danger walking on the world" mean that there was a sense of danger in the world, i.e. everyone was scared, or does it mean that travelling across the world was dangerous?
In this sentence, it means delightful or pleasurable to the senses.
