Feed the resilience #2
Sunday morning. Locked ? Not really. There are plenty of things to do. And here are a few, by C4 Adventures.
Movie: Seven years in Tibet (1997, available on Netflix Cambodia)
A classic of adventure. The true story of the Austrian mountain climber Heinrich Harrer who became friends with the Dalai Lama in a time political crisis.
Going to an adventure means getting out of time, far from societies. But when society is running back to you, even in the most remote places of the world, when adventurers become stuck in history, when the only thing we learn from history is that we don't learn from history.

Remember, adventure is more than being out in the wild. It's a mindset, a community, a culture, our way of life, because a good life is full of adventures.
