“A book that continues to inspire me is “On the Road” by Jack Kerouac. After reading it at 17 I worked for a whole year to save up to go to Europe. I wanted to do the same thing Sal did but Eurailing. Ever since then I travel as much as possible to experience the thrill of discovery and life on the move. I am fascinated with the life and type of people the book depicted. Bohemians, musicians, artists, criminals, drug addicts, outsiders who are so alive creating, living on the edge. I guess what the characters in the book were doing, the whole idea of living life in certain way in order to create, play music, write, paint, it was inspirational to me.”... Pablo Aravena
