Quote of the Day

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, & hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new & different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security & adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning & its incredible beauty.” –Into the Wild

I plan on backpacking through Europe sometime — it’ll be a unique opportunity to experience the world in a brighter, purer way.  But until then, Chris McCandless inspires me daily.
