A one. A two. A three. Let’s all camp under an old tree. Forget visiting fancy cities and shopping the same brands over and again, it is time that we realize that true adventure lies in swimming in rivers you have never swam in, climbing mountains you never step foot on, eating dishes you only read about on social media handles and sleeping under the stars you rarely count now.
