Today I want to share a story about a movie I saw. In The Netherlands I used to work in a cinema house. One day we had a art movie on our program from the USA. The title is Into The Wild. It’s tells a story about a young guy that wanted to enjoy the freedom and the wild. He took his car from Atlanta (eastcoast) all the way to the west (Seattle, Vancouver) and up through the Yukon to Alaska. This is based on a real story what happened between 1990-1992.
The movie inspired me to do a lot of travels in Northern-America. It really shows the beauty of the Northern American continent. From the mountains in California to the endless plains in the middle of the States.
This guy named Chris Mccandless used some amazing and interested expressions from books that he read during his 2 years of travel. A few examples of his quotes:
“…there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
“If you want something in this life, reach out and grab it.”
And this one:
“It is important in life not to be strong, but to feel strong, to measure yourself at least once.”
This gives you an idea of the guy where this movie is about. To give you a better idea check out the trailer below:
I heard from a lot of people that they were amazed by this movie. I can only say; check it out sometime, it’s definitely worth it!
Great weekend everybody
