I am very envious of what and where you've traveled thus far. However for me, I must keep in mind where true paradise exists..................between our ears. It's a state of mind. Kindness and being grateful for both the good and bad things in our lives allows for us to reach our full potential as human beings.
Ironically, you're above mentioned philosophy mirrors concepts in a book by Scott Peck called the Road Less Traveled. And here you are, certainly taking a "road less traveled" to reinforce your "values" taught to you in your youth.
Mark, you truly sound like a wise man, and I enjoy this RR for both it's view of the world and life. Happy New Year my friend!!!! :-)
