In Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, he met a beggar who’d introduce him to people so he could feed his own habit by taking a small cut out of Neil’s transactions. About a year later, Neil heard he’d been sentenced to five years in prison for heroin dealing. “This just horrified me, because all he would do was sit in the same spot in Mansfield town center, begging.
“He told me that the height of his month was when a vein in between his toes on the top of his foot had opened up that he hadn’t been able to inject into for three years. That was the summation of his entire life. This guy needed help—something else rather than being exploited by all the dealers around him, or exploited by me for that matter.”"

Nicaraguan Travel Blogs
There’s no such thing as traveling truly solo - you just meet so many awesome people along the way.
A few of them have travel blogs, and I thought it would be a taste of the type of people I spent my time with to just show off some of them.
Met her snorkeling on Little Corn Island at the very end of a 3 year trip through 3 latin american countries. She was very clearly ready to go home, kinda tired of the misogyny and lonely life of traveling central america. I hope she recharges cause she was fun when she wasn’t down. We joked that she was past her “travel before” date.
Amazing coloradan with searching speech pattern who hot shots during the summer and ski tunes during the winter. He was motorcycling from Colorado on the way to South America (dorian gap via boat with his cycle!). He had a huge handlebar mustache grown for trip, which I think helps him make friends quite easily. He gave me a whole education on forest and wild-brush firefighting, and a interesting explanation of what happened with “the 19.” (Further reading/watching: Idaho City IHC crew video [google it], “Fire on the Mountain” about the Stormking fire)
Really only hitchhiked for like an hour with them but so cool. Surfer Dad, Mom, and a 5 and 2 year old RVing from Argentina to NYC. They had Grandma with them when I caught up with them, but I think it’s only for a few weeks. Those kids will have the most amazing lives. The pics don’t really establish dad’s rattailly hair in all its glory.

"One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as ‘that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you’re right.’ If you don’t have that, if you think you’ve got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated."
