Let's Be Adventurers
This is an accompanying piece to my story about That Time I Walked The Wing Of Moving Plane. It provides a deeper look into the training sequence involved to get started with wing walking at the Mason Wing Walking Academy in Sequim, Washington.
The Amazon rainforest is a beautiful and wild place. It’s also quite big, so while most of it is in Brazil, you can still visit from within Colombia, Equador, Venezuela, Bolivia and Peru.
Slot canyons are fun to play around in, unless you’re that guy from 127 hours. After Zion Canyon, my friend Alex and I found a small little slot canyon at Lambs Knoll and did a bit of climbing.
I’ve been on some amazing adventures, but this next one might just be the most audacious one yet. How else would you describe a 14-day, 3000 km adventure across India in a 7-horsepower rickshaw?
Thoughts & Experiences
I am an unapologetic and unabashed fan of Taylor Swift and her music. Before she became a global pop icon, she was a 16-year-old country singer-songwriter that wrote about her heartbreaks and some guy named Drew.
Food always taste best when you’re hungry. After hiking to the top of Mount Sinai and waiting for the sun to rise, I’ll add that it tastes even better when you’re not only hungry but cold.
“Will you follow me one last time?” If you are a fan of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, I don’t need to convince you to put a visit to the set of Hobbiton at the top of your must-do list when visiting New Zealand’s North Island.
You’re hitchhiking and need to get to Tajikistan from somewhere in the middle of Kyrgyzstan. No car has stopped in the last 3 hours.
If you’re in Nepal, you’re most likely here to do some trekking and there’s no trek more grand than the Annapurna Circuit that takes you up 5416m (17769 ft) and across 220 km (~137 mi) of mountains and villages in a circuit that begins in Besisahar and ends in Pokhara.
“Fuck!” Instinctively, I look down at my watch to check for my heart rate. It’s pumping at 164 BPM. This is a bad idea.
Known as the Valley of the Moon and home to the real life Lawrence of Arabia, Wadi Rum is an unspoilt desert in Jordan with massive cliffs and jagged sandstone mountains that look like they desperately escaping from the ground before being frozen in time and turned to stone.
Me: Hola! How do get to _______? Local: No problem! Take a tricycle going that way, and then get onto a jeepney and no problem!
Shit happens. On the road, there’s enough going on that small things going awry can cause more damage than it should.
