Another very cool article from NationalGeographic.com today, this one from their Traveler Magazine. For those of us who suffer from wanderlust, these 25 “Sudden Journeys” are either going to quench the thirst for adventure, or only fire it up even more.
Essentially, this is a list of 25 stories, written by a number of different authors, of last minute travel to far flung places. The beauty of these kinds of trips is that you go on the spur of the moment, with little or no plan in mind, and just let the adventure take you where it will. For example, there is the story of Pico Iyer’s trip to Bhutan in which a simple inquiring into a bus trip to the mountain kingdom led to him flying there on the first jet to enter the country. Or how about Holly Morris’ accepting of a challenge that put her on top of the Matterhorn. Or the original vagabond Rolf Potts who decided to travel across Burma on a bike.
The stories are short, sweet, and offer a little something for everyone. You’ll find adventure, romance, and the thrill of visiting new places. It kinda sounds a bit like an Indiana Jones movie. 😉 Lots of fun stories to read. Great stuff.
