I was pretty reckless. I went for the adventure instead of the comfort; that was always my policy. I never had a family until recently, and now I've got a 3-year old. But I sort of let myself go free and explore, because I always thought the world was such a huge, exciting place. I wanted to go everywhere, and I covered a good part of it.Harry Manx
