Travelling (nearly) emptyhanded: The article title aside, this essay is pretty much ‘backpacking’ at its extreme: “Traveling with no luggage and no plans was much more than a minimalist lesson in living well with less. It was an intense, in-your-face invitation to the unknown. There’s a truly magnificent side to the unknown, but we aren’t taught how to welcome it, let alone explore the breadth of its possibilities.” To be honest, really tempted to try this myself…anyone want to join me? 😛

In somewhat tangentially related news, this guy traveled with no plans…just in the other direction. Crazyyyy story, reminiscent of a real life slumdog millionaire: Indian Orphan finds his way home via Google Earth

And finally, kudos to google 🙂
