I have always loved to read or watch tales of trip, voyage, exploration, adventure and survival challenges. Today I happened upon a DVD Tracks and I could read on the jacket that this was about a woman's trek across the Australian desert with four camels and her faithful dog. Reading that was enough to hook me.
Once it started I discovered it was based on a true story., so I Googled to find more. True story adventures are always the best. Her story was submitted to National Geographic and the response was so overwhelming that she wrote a bestselling book to expand the story. Now I have a book to read.
What is it about such tales that captivates me? We all have challenges to conquer and we have dreams. At times we feel overwhelmed and journey tales encourage our own perseverance. They can inspire us to do our own challenge which does not have to be a desert walk.
Someone said that it is not the destination that is the best part it is the journey.
