Jonathan and Sarah Hiking on Black Balsam Knob

During our road trip we met up with some friends near Asheville, North Carolina that I knew from San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico, to go hiking on Black Balsam Knob, in the Pisgah National Forest near the Blue Ridge Parkway. It threatened rain the whole time, but when we got back to the car we found that we had gotten really lucky because the area around the trail head had obviously taken a storm. It was so much fun catching up with everyone and, also luckily, we had made to Asheville just in time to “help” other friends from San Cristobal inaugurate their new restaurant.

In 2011 Jonathan Look decided to change his life and pursue adventures instead of comfort and possessions. His goal is to travel the world solo; one country at a time, one year at a time. To accomplish this he got rid of most of his possessions, packed up what little he saw as necessities and headed out. His goal is to spend ten years discovering new places, meeting new people and taking the time to learn about them, their values and their place on this tiny planet. He embraces the philosophy that says a person is the sum of their experiences and rejects the fraud of modern consumerism that makes people into slaves of their consumption. He doesn't intend to be modern day ascetic, just more mindful of his place in the world and to make decisions according to that new standard.
