The concept of Curves – Soulful Driving is to pair incomparable images of mountain passes and bends with a 5-day road movie story, giving the reader the opportunity to experience the journey through the eyes of the two main characters before setting out on the journey him/herself. But what is it that makes peak-chasing so fascinating? According to the French writer Albert Camus: “The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.” Consequently, Curves – Soulful Driving is also a story of experiencing this happiness. And this is always accompanied by friendship. For why do we set out on a journey? One reason is to get to know ourselves better. And what better way to do that than in the company of a good friend.
