My Best Kept Secret
I have been traveling since I was born. My travels really started taking off when I turned 19 and for the next 6 years I have traveled all over the world. My best kept secret is my fearlessness. It is a side of me that many people haven’t witnessed since most of my travels have been by myself. I turn into a different person when I travel. I am unafraid of anything and willing to try new things even if that is eating exotic foods:
When I walked up to all the carts in Beijing that had all the insects and stuff to eat I thought do I really want to do this and almost right away I said sure why not. It’s a once in a lifetime thing and after doing it once is enough eating what I ate!
Another thing that I like to do when I travel is take photos with animals. This photo with the tiger is my favorite. When people saw this they thought I was insane. I didn’t even think twice about what if the tiger got up or moved. All I saw is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The snake picture was one of the most random pictures which I like the most. I love when the unexpected happens when I travel. You paid money for two boys to put the snake on your neck than they take photos of you with you camera. This was taken in Bali.
You can also have fearlessness when you travel to a place like China. Before I went I heard it’s hard to get around, no one speaks english and so on. I took that all in stride and my trip to China was one of the best I have taken. This Great Wall trip was the next day after eating all the insects and didn’t know if I could make it up the Great Wall which eventually i did.
I was so fortunate to get the chance to visit China. I traveled around for three weeks and saw things that before than only saw in books. Lots of people stay sheltered but I love to embrace different cultures and go to unknown places.
I also love trying new thrilling sports when I travel. This zip lining was done in Antiuga. I have also been scuba diving and Bungee Jumping off of the Macau Tower which is the highest bungee jump in the world. When I travel I am always looking for that next thrilling thing to try.
I am a shy person back home but when I travel I open up to everyone. I love meeting new people from all over the world. The photo above was taken in Athens, Greece on the rooftop bar of our hostel overlooking the Parthenon. I have had some great times with people that I’ve meet in bars, clubs, tours and so on. I’ll go up to anyone to talk to even:
If its at the Playboy Club in Macau.
In the end I look back at all that I have done and even I am amazed at everything I have done and accomplished. I feel very blessed to have been able to travel to all these places. If it weren’t for my fearlessness who knows if I would have accomplished everything i’ve done.
