Around The World In 30 Days

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? I’ve been trying to answer this question for six months. 

I’ve lived in Europe, Safaried in Africa, Tanned in South America, and slept on the beach in Australia.  Asia was the only frontier left to conquer; putting me in the “I’ve been to every ‘livable’ continent club”

I’m so thrilled to confirm with you that prior to my stint at Harvard, I will be on a month long journey!

My first stop is Honduras, where I am participating in a Humanitarian Aid Effort at a school in La Entrada.  I can not thank my benefactors enough for their generous donations towards the school.

After returning from Honduras I will be home for a few days before departing on a 3 week journey through India, Singapore, and Hong Kong.  I can not thank the countless individuals that helped me piece together this epic journey!

Flying into Delhi; I will travel over the Atlantic, and home from Hong Kong; over the Pacific; meaning that I will literally be traveling around the world in 3 weeks. 25,000 miles.

I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences and stories with you on here!

casual drinking

one of these days, I am gonna get a hang of what “casual drinking” is.  you know, the kind of gathering with a few people where you throw back a few beers “just to get a buzz,” and not black out.  I will one day conquer this tightrope of alcoholism. 

awkward hi.

so yea, a lot is kinda going on. I’ve sorta been out of it, Fett likes to refer to this hibernation as “my hiatus;”  I call it winter, but what are you going to do.  But, with that said I’m really excited to bring everyone in with what I’m doing.  Spring is here, and it’s really time to get growing. 

#storytime

in this world i will pretty much try just about anything. like take for instance last night.

Zumba.

I like to dance. I like to train. perhaps I would like Zumba.

Maybe it was my awesome dance moves, maybe it was the shirt that I was wearing with a photo of a wolf howling at a moon next to Alan from The Hangover which read “One Man Wolf Pack,” or maybe it was just the fact that I was the only guy among 40 woman. Maybe it was my sick pair of vibrams five finger shoes.

It also may have been the fact that I just started a new cycle of protein powder, and ate Brussels Sprouts (i know, but they’re good for you) earlier, so I had pretty much enough gas to fly my ass to Japan. If someone lit a match in that room, we were all going down. 

What I am for sure of however is that there is a strong possibility a YouTube video focused on me Zumba-ing like I never Zumba-ed before; just might be floating around thanks to the paparazzi. Which confirms how much of an entertainment factor I must have brought to the class.

And by paparazzi I am referring to the 2, 13 year old girls videotaping me on their orange LG flip phone from the outside window.

Would I ever do Zumba again? Most likely not, I prefer the more “I lift things up and put them down” motto in regards to fitness.  

last night i had a dream…

I met myself in my dream, at Ultra of all places.  I don’t know what this means, but it was awesome.
