The idea came to me after a film festival one night. We were in the car on our way home, driving past countless blazing lights in all colors of the rainbow. Loud city noises and music in the background. The films had been about unlikely adventurers, and I'd felt like being one for years. The time had come now, experience was in my pocket, I had time to prepare while studying and looking forward to this would easily pull me through any winter. I was doing it, for real this time.
