Feb 4th 2013 8:43AM I too have been lost countless times, and the number of times I had a panic-attack when I was actually going the right way, even more.
I was backpacking (the reverse way) through Morocco when in Essa I met a solo female backpacker travelling in a similar style to me (the opposite way).
I asked her if she had much trouble.
She said no. Everyone was so kind.
They picked her up at the airport, drove her places, helped her shop; basically did all her communicating for her.
It was then I realised, even though Id been lost, scammed, threatened, and almost assaulted -- Id rather have my experiences than hers.
At least my way had been a result of my own decisions and interactions, with all the heightened sense-of-awareness, anxiety, fear, and memories.
Thats why I travel. To make mistakes, and have an adventure.

Mar 31st 2012 10:33PM I noticed with sandboarding, you don't get as much speed as snowboarding. Sand has too much resistence. But, you still get speed, and its still great fun... and yes, wiping out doesn't hurt anywhere near as much!

Survival. Gotta do what you gotta do.
