I’m being called on more and more often to coach new world travellers on how to get started on a global journey! I am always glad to pay it forward!
At best, this will be one of the least exciting technical aides I have ever penned. Though, however academic, you will find joy in that if you ever plan on travelling or living abroad, this will be the most comprehensive list of things you need to do to get started that you will ever read. ~> Wheels up, lets go!
My cousins, The Bull Of Gleaming Blades and CosomoNaughty, taught me how to become a Survivalist in the urban outback. How to live on the land, in the concrete jungle.
I’ve always been an advocate of men being Preppers, but an area that is often neglected is what it takes to be a true Survivalist. It’s easy to learn about and train in how to survive in the outdoors, the harsh Desert/Jungle/Woods where you live. On the other hand, if you live in a city, or typically urban area, that’s just not an option.
Most of us are miles away from the proverbial edge of town.
Four stops along the way, from Sao Paulo, Brazil to the Parana River! Open wide->
As a writer, I’ve learned to never start a positive comment with negative words. In Global Insights – The Zen of Travel and BEING in the World, Dr. Monteiro broke the rules of being a so-called “travel writer”, so I feel no shame (a laughable concept anyway) in putting forward my thoughts on her book.
What the book isn’t!
- It’s not a happy-go-lucky, generic coming-of-age book written by someone with no life experience.
- It’s not a book that highlights the highs and avoids talking about the painful, gut-wrenching, and often soul-crushing sacrifices made in order to live the dream.
- It’s not a book to be taken lightly, or easy to put down.
- It’s not even the “part memoir; part motivational/inspirational text; part travelogue; part collection of psychological insights into creativity, motivation, and self-actualization”, it’s billed as. Because this book is far more than the sum total of its profound, yet disparate parts.
My phone nearly exploded with all the pictures I have stored from the events, people, and places I took pictures of here in Sao Paulo!
I came back from a birthday celebration for my friend Renée, the action was awesome! I was even able to take a life lesson away that a man who can’t dance taught me.
I’ve always held to the belief that comfort is the enemy of Men. If we aren’t pushing ourselves to live on the edge of life, then we aren’t learning or growing. That’s why I always jump headlong into the Discomfort Zone!
