The theme of the issue is risky travel.
The conversation is devoted to expeditions to different parts of the world, where sometimes not only scientists, but also the most ordinary people go.
Everyone has their own reasons to one day break away from their usual place and devote the rest of their lives to exploring the amazing corners of our planet in an attempt to solve the innumerable mysteries of nature and history.
Despite the obvious dangers, difficult climatic conditions, hard life, the corresponding physical and psychological stress, travelers are again and again ready to throw themselves into all this with their heads.
They are not deterred by financial difficulties, nor by the understandable fear that everyone periodically experiences, nor by injuries, nor even by the possibility of death in the Arctic ice, African deserts, or somewhere on the high seas.
What makes all these people travel around the world, sometimes climbing into places where literally no human foot has ever set foot?
A simple desire to test yourself?
Lack of adrenaline?
Longing for the times when every expedition turned into a scientific breakthrough and shocked with an abundance of new knowledge about the world in which we live?
Or the opportunity to rethink your life in isolation from civilization?
