I never thought that the Ancients would bestow such an honour upon me. The time came for me to set out on a quest that would test me both physically and mentally. I was determined to make my idols proud as I set off on the long voyage, feeling like great adventurers such as Marco Polo or Leif Ericson must have felt. I learned things you never could learn within the limits of your own culture. There are some things you simply can not begin to understand without exploring it from a completely new eye. This is an account of my travels, starting from an aboriginal reserve in Ottawa.
