- Fizzy Thoughts: Hero

You should have seen this one coming … Who is your favorite Male lead character? And why?Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

Since I cheated last week, I feel obligated to cheat again this week. So I'm going to choose from travel memoir author dudes. This time, the Oscar goes to....Rory Stewart.
Rory Stewart wrote The Places In Between (as well as The Prince of the Marshes). The Places In Between tells of his walk across Afghanistan, and the people he met on his adventure. Stewart impressed me with his intelligence, his desire to truly understand other cultures, his willingness to invest in the future of Afghanistan through his Turquoise Mountain Foundation, and his guts (walking across Afghanistan in 2002?!? Yikes!). Check out his brief biography. He's a smart, accomplished guy...and he's only 35. And he's kinda cute, in a goofy sort of way.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
