I walked out of the little office with my boarding pass in my hands, still unable to grasp what just happened. I was only checking in for a regular flight to Miami.
In front of me I have a sleek little device you are all familiar with (I am sure): the iPod touch. We bought it so Karin-Marijke could use it as a memo recorder for interviews. However, I have been using it more and more lately as my running companion on my quest for the 8K.
Remember your first camera? Or the first time you stepped into a darkroom and had to get used to that awkward, red light? As you grow older, those firsts become rarer. And before you know it, habits have become the norm. We tend to forget those joyful moments.
