This is great! Trying new things is one of the joys of life, and reading about someone's adventure is fun too. Thank you for sharing! I of course enjoy watching documentaries set in nature that take me on a wild adventure from the comfort of my home. Two that come to mind are: "Addicted to Life (Nuit de la Glisse)" (2014):


and "March of the Penguins" (2005):


You've encouraged me with this post to look for more documentaries that explore nature. Thanks!

I sure do love this story, Heather. I will never be described as a neophiliac, but if it weren't for that horrendous road and the fact that I am as old as dirt, I would love to visit those donkeys. Survivors! Your article allowed me to be there - to see, touch, smell, feed them. Thank you for the vicarious pleasure. I loved the idea of a " scream factor". Keep up the good work!
