In Hiking and mountaineering there is a notion of "fanatical goal achievement".
And the main is not a goal, it's a sign opposite to common sense, and the ability to understand in time the need to return.
But to come and die it is for infantile Amateurs.
So the goal is important but not important. ...

I agree completely. Don't know how then, but I was in Tunisia just two months ago. Dirt and devastation. Although the overall holiday was very pleased. The sea is fantastic. El JEM shook and subdued. Carthage saw a little, but it was enough to feel the spirit of history ...
