This book combines a documentary-style travel guide with a radical approach to self-development that may even kill you.
We all know the positive force a disciplined life can bring on. This book explores some automatic disciplines a traveler gains on the road or in this case on the most active volcano in the world in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
-CS Schafer, MA Philosophy
A travel adventure of a different kind. CS Schafer, a world traveler, an ex-pat in Asia for many years, had ended up on a big island, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, known for its beautiful beaches, jungles, and active volcanoes, on the world’s most active volcano, Kīlauea on Hawaii.
Most visitors are tourists, escaping their lives, seeking a vacation but with all the comforts of home; they desire it so much that they just want to go home in the end.
This book is not a travel guide but does describe, in detail, one of the best hiking trails in the Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park. This is a story of a travel philosophy that you can take home after you’re done. The adventure starts from the discipline of a traveler, taking it to a new level of experience. This new kind of traveler enjoys the trip more, travels light, and minimizes baggage. When the adventure takes you to an entirely new place, none of the default triggers will condition your habitual mind — it is the perfect opportunity to do some radical lifestyle changes while no one is looking. It is best to do this alone if you are courageous enough.
Read the story of the author’s approach to lifestyle travel as a way of life. Even if you don’t go to this island, you can apply this travel technique anywhere you go.
Something unusual happens when you go to someplace new, and as a traveler, a rolling stone, an adventurer, you become friendly to all those you encounter along the journey. You become the best version of yourself; you become a great listener, who is passionate about yourself and others.
Here is that kind of trip. Thank you for your interest.
