I've had many fine adventures thus far in my life - be it by bike, foot, climbing, traveling across the USA on $3/day, etc. Some of these trips are firmly engraved in my brain cells for life.
And I have gone back to repeat some of these trips in an effort to re-capture that great, initial experience. I got news for you sir, it can't be done.
Don't try to relive it. Leave it alone.
I am not sure why this is the case. But I think it's due to the fact the you are always comparing the "repeat" experience to the "initial" experience, and that in itself ruins the "repeat" trip.
As they say, "the end of one adventure is the beginning of another adventure."
