I really liked that he spends his time in hostels with young people. I've learned from the brief interactions we've had with backpackers in the same age range that they've enriched our (comparatively) older lives considerably. I'm jealous of his lightweight bag, though--no way I could make do with 2 sets of clothes!
I wish there was a way to keep up with him, but as the author says, he doesn't even do email.
