im currently reading a book about a british guy who hitchhiked from london to Mumbai following the silk road journey through parts on the middle east back in the late 90's ...I worked with a German guy once who had decided to go to some Ashram in India so drove his 2CV Citroen there back in the 90s. He had some incredible photos. It's amazing how many people he didn't know fed him and housed him in places you imagine are pretty hostile. I'd love to do a bit of an adventure trip. One of my cousins did a trek in Kamchatka in Russia, they drop you with a pack and a flare gun to scare bears and you walk your way for weeks across pristine wilderness on your own. I think I'd probably go insane but it would be a pretty intense and interesting.
i know through my travels often the places that are meant to be the most deadly are often home to the most helpful and generious people ...
i guess its the mindset you enter into when traveling if you aproach it with fer and suspision you will almost certainly find trouble but if you go with the flow and let things unfold around you then you usually get by and have some great stories to tell
