Wanderlust is perhaps a desirable illness in the post-industrial era. In our consciousness, a background noise remains, telling us that the humanly manipulated world is fragile, ephemeral, and ultimately false. That is why finding the strength to leave the things we find comfortable and go far beyond our castle is so important.
The journey may shed light on our nature and help us to reposition ourselves in the cosmos, the natural world and among our peers.
Far Beyond the Castle is a different travel book. It is a collection of stories on five continents that explores adventure travel from different angles: the insights about human nature we might discover in remote lands, among remote peoples; the beauty of unmodified nature; our rationale for being a species apart; the emotions that are prompted by what we experience.
