Robert M. Pirsig
Robert M. Pirsig is widely known as the author of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values. The main reason why I read this book was how he associates travel within his theories. I personally enjoy traveling books, as taking a journey is already an enlightenment itself. It's a double enlightenment when one is reading that genre during a trip.
It serves a source of questions, giving me a chance to exercise my brain cells (or what's left of it).
I looked up on the route Robert M. Pirsig took -- and here's a link:
I really appreciate how some people do take the unwanted route, instead of the main road. Let's see how much I would do that... ♥
