Just keep winding it out until it drops down enough for you to reach. The French, in particular, seem to favour this method.
I regularly wind mine a long way out for cleaning and no harm comes to it. (Kiss of death!)

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.
