During a long hike through the forest of the Czech Republic, as I get closer to the top of a mountain, I reach the pinnacle of my walk. Not the summit, not a panoramic view, not even some moment of self-discovery. No, what I've found up here amongst the dense wilderness is a man selling beer from a keg in an esky.
