Over the millennia, groups of human beings have from time to time set out on epic expeditions. Casting caution and the comforts of hearth and home to the winds, they turn instead to face fate and journey off into history. To put it in less epic phrasing, some people have done some awesome things.
We thought that today you might want to hear about some of the greatest voyages of daring exploration ever undertaken, thus to put your day (or year or decade) in perspective. Don’t worry, we too avoid mirrors for several hours after thinking about what these brave souls have done, where they have gone, and under what circumstances. Of course, on the other hand, we also like it when our coffee is hot, our laundry washed and folded, and Thai food delivered hot and spicy a mere 30 minutes after we grab the phone. Hmm...heroic voyage, or pan fried noodles—this one is a toss-up.
