Adventures with Purpose-Switzerland: Quest for the Sublime follows modern explorer Richard Bangs on a quest to discover the roots of adventure travel and to search for what philosophers and poets of earlier times called "the sublime." According to Bangs, "It's no longer enough to just tick another destination off the list. Some travelers are looking for greater adventure and a deeper connection with the world around them. They're looking for adventures with purpose." Bangs' purpose this time takes him to the scenic splendor of Switzerland. He begins in Lucerne with stops at Mt. Pilatus and nearby Entlebuch Valley, travels to St. Moritz, and boards the famous Glacier Express train. Bangs side-trips to the Jungfrau region, and finally lands in Zermatt to experience the rapture of a deadly mountain that helped change our perception of nature-the Matterhorn. Richard Bangs is often called the father of modern adventure travel.
