Carnet de Voyage
Almost ten years ago I walked upon the summit of Mount Everest. I was 25 years old, I’m going on 35 now. If there is a single thing I had to say about my experience at the summit, it would be that I was amazed to find myself to be the same person as the kid that had once dreamed of it. I’d pictured bring someone else, someone stronger, wiser, more like a movie character. Yet there I was with the same faults and qualities; just human. That was my great discovery: just being human is an amazing thing. It makes the unbelievable a possibility.
That’s the idea that brought my father and I up the highest mountain on every continent. Here is the film that tells of our relationship atop the highest peaks of the planet.
