A visceral, physical joy

This is going to seem cheesy, or, well, overblown, but I was really missing my Adventure Journal.  I switched to a new mac and somehow didn’t manage to bring all my bookmarks along with me, also switching from Firefox to Chrome. For awhile, I revelled in the adventure of re-discovering the links I liked, figuring that if I loved it that much, I wouldn’t lose it.

Well, I have been searching for this one since August. Often weekly, generally consistently, struggling to remember the name. I thought it was Mountain Journal: totally different thing. I put in keywords, I traced link through link hoping to catch it. I jumped randomly and racked my brain.

Each of these sessions ended with a tiny internal pain. The streamlined web design. Their weekly cabins.. The humour and humorous polls. Sigh. Inner pain. Sigh.

I found it today. I found it I FOUND it.

An inner, visceral, buried under my rib cage ball of pleasure. I am so happy. I can feel that happiness flowing through me warmly, the anticipation of FOUR MONTHS of essays, commentary, videos and photography. And I just discovered they are putting out a print quarterly, with articles and photos not found online. I am sold. Subscription booked, international shipping fee paid, bookmark made.

Its like coming home.

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
