The panoramas, the aromas, the people, their customs, their pack animals… Wow! All the cool stories that you, too, would have later on if you could just get yourself off, far off the old beaten path. If you could just take a leap of faith beyond the routines, the self-denial and the rational choices… to allow room for some crazy adventures to creep on in… ”
