If people remain themselves…they will be in nature and feel everything.

I became abnormally interested in snake bites.

Albert Sussler ( USA )

Two things will happen in travel;
you will meet new people,
you will mess up then see how long it takes to recover.

If there’s anything / more right than this /

name it.
