21 ARR RAW: Addictions, Challenges & Making Dreams Come True

ARR RAW Round Table Discussions With Travellers

On this months RAW, at the round table we discuss travelling in poverty stricken areas, how we make our dreams of motorcycle travel come true, being an adventure addict and dealing with wanderlust.


Travel in Poverty Stricken Areas: When we are travelling we often spend a lot of time in areas where people are poverty stricken or suffering in general because they have so little. How do you deal with that?  

Dreams are Where Adventures Begin: Why do you think you actually managed to do your big trip when statistically most dreamt about don’t end up happening?

Adventure Addicts: Do you think that after a time you become an adventure addict? As in, you know what the possibilities are, that you can make dreams come alive and therefore, want more. If you do become one, is there anything wrong with that?

Living With Wanderlust: For example, you wander for a period of time, go back home and soon find yourself itching to go again, so you pick up and go again. Obviously some people will think it’s really cool and incredible what you’re doing, and others will think that you’re a little off your nut. How do we deal with society’s expectations of us (what society considers “normal”) and maintain our wanderlust?
