The power of a travelogue
31 March 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

When I was 14 or so, I read the book, "The Boy who sailed around the world alone" by Robin Lee Graham. I am sure that I read a lot of books at that time but I don't think that any made a more lasting impression on me. I even know to this day exactly where that book is. I guess that is the power of a travelogue.

Travelogues let us experience things that we often have neither the time, means or for that matter physical stamina for ourselves. When done well, they also give us great insight both into the challenges in the world around us but also can remind us of the greatness of humankind and give us hope for its future. I think that Pelada is an example of just such a film. I hope you enjoy it.
