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'm waiting a few minutes, the weather outside is pretty bad. To be specific, hail, sleet and freezing rain, ice on the roads and visibility is weaker than Bill Nye in an arm wrestle. And my computer isn't recognizing memory cards again, lovely.
If you've met me on the road, and helped me out in anyway, I am forever in your debt. Please know that although I may not have been able to reciprocate the kind gestures you provided me, I can guarantee that I will hold your kindness and memories close to me for a very long time. Also know that I will pass on your stories and generosity in future experiences.
I am 22yr old Canadian Citizen currently deployed in Kigali, Rwanda, where I am working as the Project Manager for a major NGO. I am an avid adventure traveler, and Im embarking on a long lifetime ahead of craziness. Arent those Red Bull guys just the coolest??
