Before you set off
“Russian custom. Before you go on a trip, after all the running around and packing, stop for a moment so you leave from a point of complete stillness. It makes for a safe and pleasant journey.” – Werner Herzog

Flounder
Stumble through the hinterlands, realising your map is out of date; tangle with the natives.

Ascend
Up into the high hills of understanding, look down on the view where for a wonderful moment everything is clear, before the fog moves in again.

Descend and return
The exhilaration of pushing yourself and surviving, looking forward to the comforts of home.

Looking back
Form memories, narratives and understanding. Excitedly share your stories.

Experience
Add a layer of experience, broaden your horizon, never see things the same way again.
