The ‘Vision Quest‘

In 2014 I was handed this book, called ‘The Book of the Vision Quest’. The story goes that in some indigenous tribes boys, who are about to become of age, are send into the wild for three days and three nights. All by themselves, without any food or water. During these solitary 72 hours they are to imagine what they will become once they return to their communities as men. Will they be a fisherman, a medicine man maybe?

This story inspired me to go on my own Quest to the rest of my life. It took me from The Netherlands to Australia and the US West Coast, back to my home country. I got lost and finally found myself in The Hague. The Quest is taking me a little bit longer than anticipated, but I trust in a bright outcome.
