Preparation – preparation – preparation !
What drains your enjoyment, energy and morale when traveling, trekking or climbing you can trace back to something you could have considered back home.
Always be open for unprepared challenges and keep calm. What makes an adventure successful is not about that all what was prepared went as planned and you had all the nice gear and stuff that made it perfect. From many climbs and other trips, I have learned that it is often the ones where you had to cope with primitive conditions or where you had to adapt to new challenges without the completely right gear.
We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls. – Anais Nin
