“A trip isn’t an adventure until something goes wrong.”
I have no idea where this quote comes from, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t accurate. Take a look at that picture above. 30 minutes after I snapped it at that idyllic place, I lost my wallet… In a stream… In the mountains. I’d stopped on the way out to take a picture of a snake, and when I got back to my bike at the bottom…. Fuuuuck.
I spent 3 hours walking up and down this mountain stream in search of it, only to come up empty handed. When you are traveling, keeping your wallet on your person is kind of a big deal, and I fucked that up.
