Journalists cut the coolest parts of the interviews out and emphasize the ones that please the audience the most. But let me update something really cool that in my opinion should have been kept there instead of ridiculous talks about dangers and perils of the expedition.
When you are setting off for the expedition like this one, you can't fear death. You should rather live your life fully enough until that moment, so that it feels like your life had happened already and you can painlessly give it away. No fear and panic when the woodcutter is coming because the tree bloomed already. Not lived life is the scary part that we are not aware of, not the death. This is one of the biggest values these expeditions are pushing me to understand and explore.
