Live 88.5 FM "Start Up" Interview - September 8, 2009

My second time chatting with the Live 88.5 Start up crew...although there were some new and improved faces this time around! (Nothing personal Kornicky and sorry Dave, I wasn't referring to you)

Our talk will focus on ways for you to take advantage of your traveling budget (tips, places to visit, ways to travel, etc) and stay on the road for as long as possible.

As always, my motivation is to get you to put on a pack, take off and explore this trippy planet of ours.

More Confessions...Chapter 27. CULTURE SHOCK

They say that "all good things must come to an end." However, 'they' can often be clueless idiots.

I had zero intention of letting the magical and educational experiences of the past two years come to an end. Despite being forced to return home to deal with a family dilemma, I knew that my time in Canada was going to be short....I would be back travelling soon enough.

Nonetheless, my return was met with a lot of uncertainties...the main one being whether or not I would be leaving the airport in handcuffs...

More Confessions...Chapter 26. THE EMAIL

Between my incredible job running a pub, living on a beach and having Southern Africa as my playground, one could say that life was pretty good. Even the 'stressful' moments, such as being in a bus accident, ultimately proved to be incredible experiences and fascinating stories.

It couldn't stay this sweet forever...

It didn't.

A simple email from home would dramatically change my perspective, attitude and future travel plans... A simple email would unlock the cage that I had so wonderfully stored my anger and frustrations within...
