I have also read the book. It made me enthusiastic about trekking. But never got a chance to go.
I hope you get to go. It opens a new world, and a new way of looking at your own world Modernfamily.( so so sorry not sure of your name and I don't want call you by the wrong one..moniker was kinder I thought )
Talking of alternate worlds this weekend I was invited for a meal over to a friends place and he lives "aboard" here in Singapore. He and his Wife get to work and back home like all of us do except they live on a boat. And weekend outings include sailing to the Philippines when the weather is good.
Their reasons for living there - he loves his work and the pace at which things move here and dislikes the " no adventure" life and the commutes. And found the Rents on land exorbitant!!So they think they have the perfect solution - he spends on his own boat and not line some home owners pocket!
To me I Guess the best part is he makes his own electricity and his own garbage disposal. And I think I get altitude sick a lot lesser than sea sick
I could never get through living in a boat... Luxury liners are a different cup to tea though
