How very sadly ironic is this.
The man was only 47 and died at home. However, it is reported that he was able to see roughly half the places about which he wrote and that, between
the two authors, they had seen just about every place mentioned in the book.
Considering how young he was, his death is certainly a tribute to the idea of living life to the fullest. It reminds us that we never really know how
much time we have. Sometimes we take for granted the things and people in our lives (me included) when really we should be treasuring each
experience. individual, and moment.
