He Went To Explore The Amazon Jungle, But Never Expected This

Yossi Ghinsberg yearned to set out on the road, to broaden his horizons and discover the world’s unbeaten paths. Yet he was about to discover something far from expected.

Ready For A Journey

Around the time that Ghinsberg turned 22, he decided that he was ready to embark on his journey. What he didn’t know, was that his dreams of adventure and exploration would ultimately turn into a nightmare.

Escapist Aspirations

Part of what inspired Yossi Ghinsberg to seek his own adventure was by French author Henri Charrière’s book Papillon. The novel recounts the author’s escapades after escaping imprisonment on the South American island of French Guiana. He had visions of his great explorations, yet it seemed that this would not just be fantasy soon.
