Into the Wild

Tonight I watched the film Into the Wild. It touched me deeply. I miss those days.
Parts of it reminded me of why I love to travel, and of the glories and rewards you reap from living simply. The film reminded me of the freedom of the open road – freedom of movement, freedom of choice, freedom of thought and ambition. It reminded me how beautiful the world is, how good many of the people are. It reminded me of the futility of chasing pay cheques and ‘stuff’. It reminded me not to forget all that.

I write more about this motivational film, and others that have inspired me, here.

  1. I love this film. It is the only one I cry to without fail each and every time I watch it (and I’m not your typical emotional girl). I put it down to the beauty en-captured by the music – Eddie Vedder captures the mood so well!
