“if you travel with an open mind and a good heart, and remain respectful of the country you’re in, then you should be fine.”
Charley Boorman, By Any Means

“Era difícil não comparar aquela região com a Mongólia. Assim como os pastores mongóis, as tribos de peles-vermelhas das Grandes Planícies tinham sido nómadas, vivendo em tendas e seguindo as manadas de búfalos para encontrar pastagens para os seus animais. A única diferença era que esse estilo de vida ainda existe na Mongólia enquanto que aqui os brancos tinham impedido os índios de o fazer.”
Charley Boorman, Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World

“Olhei para a fotografia da minha filha colada na parte de dentro do para-brisas e pensei na minha família. Há apenas quatro semanas que estava ausente, mas sentia imenso a falta dela e desejei tê-la comigo neste instante. Não podia imaginar como seria uma pessoa ter de se afastar dos filhos para procurar uma vida melhor sem saber se voltaria a vê-los.”
Charley Boorman, Long Way Round: Chasing Shadows Across the World
