“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”
Mark Jenkins

“Wanderlust is incurable.”
Mark Jenkins, The Hard Way: Stories of Danger, Survival, and the Soul of Adventure

“Maps encourage boldness. They're like cryptic love letters. They make anything seem possible.”
Mark Jenkins
