However, I had more fun traveling then than I do now despite all the modern conveniences and facilities available or within easy reach these days.
We had to cook our meals in an improvised "kalan" - three stones to support a "kaldero" and dry twigs to fuel a fire and a designated cook and his assistants who had no clue of what they were doing. To this day, I still think those meals were more satisfying than the fancy meals served on cruise ships and star-studded restaurants on shore.
Only our legs to propel us from place to place, not the air-conditioned, toilet-equiped and comfort-laden touring coaches...
and crude lean-tos to protect us from the elements at night, not a fancy suite with a minibar, high definition tv, wifi and a gold-plated bathroom.
