I never imagined someone I have never met (though I hope to rectify this someday) could have such a profound impact on my life and the way I view the world. I have always had a passion for travelling; reading his diaries has cemented my wanderlust and reiterated the importance of immersing oneself in the places one visits, and making the most of the experience. The reason I want to someday follow bands around the world, is from reading about others’ experiences following his. He proves that I, or you, or any fucker else, can and will change the world. Thanks, dude. Thanks a fucking bunch for being my hero not only for the past few years but, I am sure, for the rest of my life. I hope to thank you in person someday soon.
