Before there were roads and pathways, people travelled on foot and in caravans. They did not follow a given trail but went with a faint sense of direction and intuition. Their journeys were not just physical but spiritual. They explored lands and seas on their own and their ventures were loaded with stories and strange encounters. In today’s time if we are to see the world in an unconventional way, we’ll have to go exploring like the old times, like nomads and hermits.
