Aaron Mitchell Adventurer..

On a recent trip in the Santa Monica Mountains I met Aaron Mitchell. A fascinating chap who is currently making his way across the planet on his motorbike. We had a very pleasant evening sat around a camp fire sipping whisky and sharing our travel stories. Of course my tales of adventure did not quite compare to this explorer who had been on the road for six months. 
I was not surprised to hear Aaron carried no camera, but instead used his phone to record parts of his trip along with a journal. I understood when he told me that memories were enough and taking pictures can very often 'spoil' the moment.
Having said that, how often do you here people say; 'I wish I brought a camera..'
Anyway, what a nice fella.
