Why is this Terzani’s “fault”?
When we decided to take a long trip in Asia, the initial plan was far different from the road we then followed. At the beginning we thought to take a flight, land in another area of the world to discover a new culture and fully immerse in that culture throughout our journey. Our main destination was India.
We had this plan in mind until 3 months before our departure. However, our soul told us that we were missing something, that we had chosen the easiest path and we would not thoroughly understand that culture. In other words, we were not completely satisfied with our decision, but still we did not have the courage to question the initial plan by ourselves.
The courage we needed came from Terzani’s words. The book we were reading in that moment showed us the way, fed our feelings and allowed us to take the flight…or, rather, to not take that flight (and many others after)!
From that moment on, we started to plan our overland journey through Asia, crossing mountains, bridges, cities, borders and all it takes to reach our destination: India.
This travel style put us through many challenges, but it also gave us deep emotions, for this reason we have decided to apply the same mindset for our upcoming adventure in South America.
For this reason, our lifetime adventures are all…Terzani’s fault!
