Why...

"Let me get this straight...  why do you keep doing these crazy adventures???"


Why:  The year I spent aboard the motorcycle was a true adventure, a journey that changed me forever.  It helped me see and experience new people and cultures, and learn much more about myself.  

I've found that travel (especially solo travel) is more than just the seeing of sights; it's a deep and permanent change in the ideas of living.  

It took a divorce, unhappiness at work, and a death in the family to push me 'over the edge' to take off on my first adventure.  Now I wonder why it ever took so long to do it in the first place.  I'm not sure where I'll end up, or what I'll be doing.  Until then I'll continue taking these (what some would call) crazy adventures.  After all, someday never comes...  maybe you have to chase it down yourself.

For what it’s worth: it’s never too late to be whoever you want to be.  There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want.  You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.  We can make the best or the worst of it.  I hope you make the best of it.  And I hope you see things that startle you.  I hope you feel things you never felt before.  I hope you meet people with a different point of view.  I hope you live a life you’re proud of.  If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.” ~ The Curious Case of Benjamin Button screenplay by Eric Roth

  2. Sounds like you got the "why" figured out. Hope your journey is/has been an amazing one.

  3. That is an awesome "why" that I think could apply to many an American, or human for that matter. I completely understand your rationale. After all, you only live once. Do what you must do. Safe travels. I hope one day to meet you on the road of the globe, wherever that is.
