Any trip, however far and for however long, can be an adventure. But sometimes a journey is so brilliant, so all-encompassing, so (yes, we’re going to say it) epic, that it crosses over into something else all together.
Overland travel mixes must-see highlights with local, off the beaten track experiences that it’s tough to get by travelling any other way. We’re talking detours to a remote Ethiopian village to meet the Hamar or Mursi tribes, crossing the Bolivian altiplano, learning to cook traditional food and helping out at the local school. You know, those moments you look back on and think “that really made my time there”.
Right, let’s get one thing straight from the beginning: Chicago ain’t that windy. It’s not the windiest city in the USA, it isn’t even particularity windy on any known scale of windiness. Sorry.
