Have you ever been to the Burning Man Festival? Any desire to go or rather not and call it Boring Man?

I first visited the festival 10 years ago this week. A huge adventure with my then boyfriend, we'd both always wanted to go and thought 'Let's do it!'  I'd seen Round the World in 80 raves and the place looked crazy, like mad max. We had to go and experience for ourselves.

The Burning Man festival began by a group of...
