Charles Darwinss travels around the world as an independent naturalist on HMS Beagle between 1831 and 1836 impressed upon him a sense of the natural worlds beauty and sublimity which language could barely capture. Words, he said, were inadequate to convey to those who have not visited the inter-tropical regions, the sensation of delight which takes the mind experiences.
