They say travel changes the traveller. In what way will this adventure change me? How will it affect my goals, my values, my personality? Will I desire to travel more or less afterwards? Is this the beginning of a new lifestyle or just an epic holiday at a time of unclear paths? Will it be arduous or frivolous? So much is unclear today. All I know for sure is that I will do this. And that it will change me forever. And that is half of the appeal for me. To have a blank canvas on which to paint.
