"The brown paper bag is the only thing civilised man has produced that does not seem out of place in nature. Crumpled into a wad of wrinkles like the fossilized brain of a dryad, blending with rock and vegetation as if it were a burrowing owl's doormat or a jackrabbit's underwear, a number eight kraft paper bag lay discarded in the Oregon hills and appeared to live where it lay. Once long ago, it had borne a package of buns and a jar of mustard to a kitchenette rendezvous with a fried hamburger. Most recently, the bag had held love letters. As a hole in an oak hides a squirrel's family jewels, the bag had hidden love letters in the bottom of a bunkhouse trunk. Then one day after work, the lanky filly to whom the letters were addressed, gathered bag and contents under her arm, slipped down to the corral past ranch hands pitchin' horseshoes, and ranch hands flyin' Tibetan kites, saddled up and trotted into the hills. A mile or so from the bunkhouse, she dismounted and built a small fire. She fed the fire letters, one by one, the way her girlfriend had once fed her french fries. As words such as "sweetheart" and "honey britches" and "forever" and "always" burned away, the cowgirl squirted a few fat tears. Her eyes were so misty, she forgot to burn the bag." Tom Robbins

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

4 days before I came to Finland a good friend of mine invited me to trek up a river close to his house. The going was easy at the start as it was just walking up the river but then the rocks started getting much bigger, steeper and more dangerous. We had to swim through this freezing torrent of water which was in between a very narrow break in the rocks. Eventually reaching the top, after having to swim under rocks to progress up the mountain, the waterfall was one of the most amazing things I have seen. The flow of the river was much heavier than normal so the waterfall was literally rumbling. To see that sheer amount of power in nature really gave me a new perspective. It took 5 hours to reach the top, and 4 to return.

When I was backpacking on Vancouver Island last june/july I met a Canadian guy from the hostel and we climbed a mountain which over looked Tofino(small town). We bonded instantly and it was really amazing to be able to do something like this with someone you have just met. At one stage while we were climbing up we just stopped and listened to the wind in the gigantic pine trees and it was so amazing and peaceful. There were no sounds from machines or anything, just the wind in trees.

Another amazing thing that happened while backpacking in Tofino was that everybody who was staying in the hostel built a small fire and sat around it one night. It was so amazing to have so many different cultures/languages present and stories of travels.
