Join wild tribe...
You've had the most amazing adventure, travelling, working and living across this beautiful planet. Now your back to where you left off. Back home, the 'real world.' You have changed so much, you've grown, you've seen, you've experienced. But back home, nothing has changed. You feel like you don't fit in anymore. Maybe you feel stuck, lost, uncertain and you just cant relate to those around you. Or maybe you just want to find a place to share your adventures.
Ive created the WILD TRIBE for you and all of us. A tribe of like minded people, travellers, adventures and wanderlusters. A place to come together after experiencing so much of the world to exchange experiences, share stories and celebrate your adventures.
Never in my wildest dreams had I thought I would live in the mountains. I'd suffocate if I moved away from the ocean. I remember having this thought many times. But now I know, just like the ocean, the mountains too have a special vibe.
Cambodia has always been high on my travel list. So you can imagine how excited I was when the contract for my most recent expedition came through earlier this year. The training weekend for the trip fell on the same weekend as my tryouts for Team Australia Roller Derby. But as I've said many times before, divine timing is everything, things always turn out as they are meant too in the end.
A friend of mine looked me dead in the eyes and said: "You have the most amazing life." I froze as my eyes glassed over with tears and my face started to burn. "Every time I see what you're doing your adventuring somewhere new, climbing mountains, jumping off waterfalls or hanging out at the beach." Still frozen as the lump in my throat almost blocked off my airways. I had no response....she was absolutely right.
Whenever you have an important date set in your calendar it seems that the world will throw everything it's got at you, just to really see how bad you want it. I knew life was a bit of a rollercoaster but these last few weeks, a crazy patch, made me wonder if I was going to fly off the rails.
One thing successful people do well is starting each day in the same inspiring way. The first few hours of the day are imperative to how the rest of your day will flow. Nailing this will leave you happy inspired and set up for an itncredible day.
I'd been to Portland once before, but we had just driven through. This time around I was determined to see more of Portlands beauty. Oregon is one of my favourite states in the US, that's probably because of its epic nature and endless outdoor adventures to be had.
There is so much you can do with this wild and crazy life. Never in your wildest dreams will you be able to do it all, see it all or have it all. The world is a playground and there is just so much on offer. If your anything like me you will want to get the most out of your life. How do you do that?
Isn't it easy to lose yourself in this world? Now even more so than 10 or 20 years ago. We live in the age of information where anything we want to know is at the end of our fingertips, quite literally. Social media lets us peer into the lives of so many. Comparison is easy, judgment is easier as we really are only perceiving the world with our own eyes and thoughts and creating a story around what we choose to focus on.
This is just another chapter in my life coming to an end. And I'm not one for wasting life - that's part of the reason I have to leave this game! As we all know, as one door closes another will open. This next door I'm opening blind...I'm excited for what's to come but simply have no idea of what life will gift me next. All I can do is take the next step forward, with an open mind and an open heart. Show me the way!
Most people I spoke with told me that the Argentinian side of Iguazú Falls were much more spectacular than the Brazilian side. Perhaps it was for this reason, my expectations of Foz do Iguaçu were surpassed. Regardless, I was glad I visited the Brazilian side first.
