I know, perhaps it’s inexplicable to most people what the joy from carrying 60 kilos alone in the wilderness is and how trout fishing could be a daily sport in order to survive for the next two months. Indeed a certain mindset and experience is needed to sing loudly (and way out of tune) “Alwaaays look ooon the briiight side of life”, while passing freezing glacial rivers or solo climbing.
But in the end, I go home to my loved ones with a few stunning shots and a clear mind, happy and hungry for something different from astronauts food and fish.
