Levison Wood is a British writer, explorer and photographer. Last night, I ventured to the Hall for Cornwall – fighting against the ‘Beast from the East’ snowstorm, to experience an evening with Levison Wood and his good friend Alberto Caceres. Levison gave a talk about travel and why we put ourselves through the trials and tribulations of adventure. He shared video clips from his journeys around the world, and comical tales from his many encounters with the people he met along the way. Levison discussed the DRD4-7r gene, nicknamed the “wanderlust gene,” because of its link with increased levels of impatience and curiosity.
