Polar Bear Swims And The Polar Bear Plunge!
November 4, 2016
I’ve heard so much about polar bear swims and polar bear plunge’s lately! I honestly can’t wait, this is something I do every year and I am more than excited to dip my damn near naked body into an ice cold body of water! Not sure where I will do it this year but I will be nothing but afraid the moment I undress. It takes a couple minutes, my feet are the warmest part of my body, not sure why but it has always been the case; so when I take my socks off and the bottom of my feet touch the surface of the earth, I know it’s time. The fear is weakened and my determination kicks in, it’s something I do every year! It’s a very unique thing, being so scared and then tapping into that inner source that comes from your heart, to your eyes, to the way you look at your target, and that thought that keeps floating “I must do this”.
Sobriety And Traveling
October 23, 2016
This article is meant to be a reminder; I’ve learned some very valuable lessons on the road and one of the biggest ones is ‘Know Your Limit’. Now I am choosing to write a little bit about safety as I have come across some unique individuals in my time traveling and you most certainly cannot trust everyone who decides to act friendly in front of you.

So I talked a little bit about my journey to British Columbia’s Capital City recently, today I would like to share my thoughts on something a little different. It is early, or late, depending on how you want to look at it. Today I want to talk about the moon. A late evening and half a bottle of some chilled Pinot Gergio has led me to stare off into the sky, mesmerized by what some call “The Light In The Dark” or “The Essence Of The Night”.
The moon has truly changed who I am as a human being, I know to some this may sound crazy but how I feel about the moon I will always hold close to me, never forgetting what that bright light in the sky has done for me; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
British Columbia’s Capital City
October 14, 2016
What a place! I have spent weeks in Victoria at a time, with my bug! Now this can be a long story, or a short story as getting my baby there took patience, persistence, aggression, and a calm mind all at the same time. I have worked as a landscaper, tree planter, and have always been a passionate horticulturist. With the help of family connections I was able to get some part time work which ended up paying for the mechanical issues I came across during my travels to Victoria (this leads to a long story, I am no mechanic)… The company I worked for during my stay truly kept me sane, hedge trimming and tree trimming that had to be perfect kept me on my toes and focused enough to get back on track and enjoy my stay. Tree shaping specifically I believe is an art form, and if you know me at all; I absolutely love art. If I hadn’t had the opportunity and the connections to work with a few arborists in my past I would have probably ended up maxing out a credit card or doing some grimy part-time work to fix my bug…
I am grateful that I know how to use a pair of clippers!
Know Your Allergies!
October 10, 2016
I spent a number of weeks in Mexico one year for holidays, this place is absolutely beautiful and I recommend it to everyone. Though I highly recommend figuring out if you are going to have any allergic reactions to the things in the water! How to do this? Book an appointment with your doctor and explain how you plan on going travelling but have heard stories of people having allergic reactions to the waters of different locations. Depending on where you are travelling he or she will be able to give you a lot more information on your next steps.

They don’t really speak like crazy people, I know! I was shocked too!
All jokes aside, what a beautiful place! Wildlife, rivers, lakes, ocean shores, mountains, forests, tough terrain, light terrain, smooth terrain, and pretty much anything you can think of! I honestly think Canada is one of the most beautiful places I have ever traveled to. British Columbia, Manitoba, Calgary, Ontario, Montreal; everywhere I just listed I promise you, you can find a very unique joy!

Not entirely sure where you are, but I hope your day is turning out exactly how you saw it in your mind! Are you a planner? Or are you a spontaneous traveler like myself? I can’t for the life of me sit in one spot, I just can’t do it!
I would first like to welcome you all to my new site and begin by saying that I will be sharing numerous travel stories, local, far, and beyond! This “beyond” part leaves room for all the rascal activities that took place. Yes, you’ll be hearing embarrassing stories that I no longer feel the need to hide, also educational experiences that you yourself can learn from. You learn so much on the road, not needing to be anywhere but there, can you relate? Let me know! I have dozens of photo albums that have been collecting dust, it might be just about time to break one or two of them out and reminisce as I almost have tears coming out of my eyes writing this. So many incredible experiences that really changed my perspective on reality. Peru, Germany, France, and Canada, wow! That was like a nostalgic shot pumped into my being; I feel fantastic.
This gives you an idea as to what I am about, but if you haven’t already done so please visit my about page!
Going to go for a swim in a near by lake, it’s cold and I have a feeling some wine and snacks of various sorts will be packed in my knapsack.
I will be back soon, should we start things off with Canada? Or should we dive straight into Germany? Let me know!
Take care of yourself please,
