I like any stories as long as they have a good doses of their own thoughts and feelings about their trip, rather than just a narrative about where they went.
Also, I like inspiring and sensational stories, but I enjoy stories of extraordinary adventures by ordinary people even more because I can relate better. Too much emphasis on extraordinary people, IMO, can quickly make a sport look like a freak show of sorts. Put another way, even the most normal/boring person probably has some good stories to tell about their adventures...
