|O highway I travel! O public road! Do you say to me, Do not leave me?
Do you say, Venture not? If you leave me, you are lost?
Do you say, I am already prepared- I am well-beaten and undenied- adhere to me?
O public road! I say back, I am not afraid to leave you- yet I love you;
You express me better than I can express myself;
You shall be more to me than my poem.
I think heroic deeds were all conceiv'd in the open air, and all great poems also;
I think I could stop here myself, and do miracles.
Five trips, six continents. A goal accomplished, and an adventure beheld. Every inhabited continent visited, all four corners of the Earth reached. Peru is my latest jaunt, via an adventure like no other. From rafting the rapids of the Urubamba, to biking the cliffs of the Andes, to canoing the waters of the Amazon, to embarking on a long-beaten path to the hidden city of Machu Picchu, this would be a trip to both exhilarate my senses, and test my nerves.
|Allons! the road is before us!
It is safe- I have tried it- my own feet have tried it well.
I give you my hand!
I give you my love, more precious than money,
I give you myself, before preaching or law;
Will you give me yourself? Will you come travel with me?
Shall we stick by each other as long as we live?
This time, to my pleasure, I shan't travel alone. Accompanying me is the lovely Joy, to aid in my travels and share in my delights. An adventure together to witness the world's wonders and cement our own bonds. We would share in the discovery of the best and worst of Peru, while sharing the best and worst of each other. Joined by a group of like-minded travellers, we would explore one of the Earth's great treasures of landscape; its peaks and valleys, its old and new, its simple streets and immovable mountains.
|Allons! whoever you are, come travel with me!
Traveling with me, you find what never tires.
The earth never tires;
The earth is rude, silent, incomprehensible at first- Nature is rude and incomprehensible at first;
Be not discouraged- keep on- there are divine things, well envelop'd;
I swear to you there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell.
Come and explore Peru with us, as Chicken Noodle gives you the low-down on the fun and adventure, and George the Large-Footed Monkey intrigues with some helpful local info.
