Most Memorable Travel Experience

i explored and hiked/trekked the high alps (jungfrau, valais and mont blanc regions), wilcamped the high caucasus, the himalayas, mount olympus in greece, hiking in the negev, picos de europa range in spain, did a 1200 km roadtrip in iceland, a 1000 km roadtrip through israel, a 2000 kilometer roadtrip from northern spain to southern portugal and many more extraordinary journeys along the way but it was the friends who were with me and the people i met along the road made these trips memorable in their own way and if could turn back time i want to relieve these moments again.
