From a short interview with Werner Herzog in Time magazine:
Q: In addition to being a feature-film director and documentarian, you seem to have become an amazing interviewer.
Herzog: I’m not an interviewer. I have conversations. And I know the heart of men. I know it because I have had fundamental experiences like traveling on foot. The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot. I’ve walked from Munich to Paris, but I’ve also done longer walks. You’re unprotected and have to talk to people to ask them to fill your canteen because there’s no creek for dozens of miles. You really learn what men are all about.
