To become a worldly person, you must accept the tearing down of any and all walls, judgements and preconceived ideas of reality, because if you don’t, real travel will do that for you. When you’re in a country where you don’t speak the language and you know nobody, you’re left with the sincerest form of self; one may call it inner travel. With these experiences, authentic truth can be found, new perspectives and powerful emotions can be unlocked, that, when we’re surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the modern working lifestyle, have been lost and forgotten. Sometimes you just have to jump, and sometimes you just have to let the adventure take you along, rather than you along it.
But once I decided I had had enough for one trip, after nine months, I booked my plane tickets home, via Iceland, and took a long hard look at myself in the mirror… And I laughed. I just laughed and laughed and laughed. I looked like a homeless man with wild hair and plenty of split ends, and an unkempt beard that looked like a tangle of rosebushes. So, I sought out a clipper kit suitable for taking with me on my next adventure and got to work. You should have seen the pile of hair, you would have thought a monkey had shed his coat – wait… Maybe so.
