I am currently on the road, hitchhiking around the world shooting a documentary, or twelve. I am hoping to inspire those around me through unorthodox, and sometimes extreme methods of living. I have decided that in order to accurately measure and also to enable the best possible footage I will not spend a single dollar on food, shelter, transportation or anything personal for the next full year, and only sustain on what has been generously and spontaneously provided for me.
After witnessing enough negative behaviour in complete strangers to complete strangers to last a lifetime, I have decided to set out to accomplish many things. Prove the world is not such a nasty place full of untrustworthy people, open the minds of society that anything is possible, and that a new friend or opportunity is just a conversation away. When common courtesy seems to have evaded us in 2010, I am setting out in search of the good in the human race. Where have all the good people gone?
I will use my social skills, resourceful thinking and life experiences to accomplish a highly controversial move; travel the globe on less than $500 and breakdown every sterotype and false perception. Its going to be tough sometimes, but I know that what is waiting for me will rock the socks off of everyone reading this. Just wait 'til you see the videos.....

I am in the worst mood I have been in since leaving on this trip.

I cannot believe at how incompetent some people can be. People who work in the service industry and make decent wages who cannot perform simple tasks, use a sense of efficiency, or even common sense for that matter. Oh and their inability to smile or exert simple courtesy astounds me.
I have dealt with what seems hundreds of people today and not a single one has stood out as even mediocre in terms of the lowest, basic standard of service.
It may be the fact I have just spent the last 36 hours without sleep, or that I haven't eaten in 24 hours, but I am not just being Mr Grouchypants.

I am writing away, as I am in NYC for the next few hours until the next chapter begins. I have much coming up.(as always my false blog promises.)

Woo-sah, deep breaths Nafin.
