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.
Being highly self aware and knowing our likes and dislikes is such an important quality. This helps us to choose how we will spend our time, what type of people we like being with, what activities we like to engage in, events we want to go to and places we want to see. This can lead us to falling into a pattern of always doing things that we know are familiar to us, because we know we like doing them.Sometimes this also means we stop looking at things that we don’t know. This is often where we find the adventure in our lives.
My eyelids were heavy and the air I breathed in was cold. Like sardines in tin, we were squished into a rickety old mini van. The van clunked up the mountain and we bounced around inside. The day had not yet dawned but as I forced my eyes open, I caught glimpses of the snow covered terrain outside.
Hitting the road to see a new country or just holidaying to your favourites beachside destination? When we travel we start to lean in and embrace powerful new habits. Sometimes they come naturally and go along with the mood of our journey, other times there is no choice but to be a little more courageous.
The reverse culture / re entry shock transition brings about a wide and range of emotions across a broad spectrum. Sometimes you feel on top of the world full of excitement to settle back into your home and see family and old friends whilst other times you will feel sad, empty and lost. Your left wondering why you even returned home in the first place.
Have you been travelling the world for the 6-12 months, 2, 3, 5 years? Or perhaps you've been living and working in another country? The time has come to return home...the departure date has crept up on you and your time overseas is coming to an end? OR...Perhaps you have just arrived home or been home for a few months now. Chances are by now you've heard about the dreaded reverse culture shock and are maybe even experiencing it. You know that feeling when you come home and just don't feel like you belong? Your lost, stuck or just don't relate anymore.
After leaving the mountains just three weeks earlier, I found myself back at the airport in the early hours of the morning. 12 uni students and I were about to embark on a five week tour of Asia. As part of their business studies ‘Global business Asia’ we would visit local companies, social enterprises and business in Asia. Add to this the ‘assisted backpacking’ style travel throughout Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and China.After leaving the mountains just three weeks earlier, I found myself back at the airport in the early hours of the morning. 12 uni students and I were about to embark on a five week tour of Asia.

You can use 'flow' to draw adventures into your life, rather than always chasing them! What do I mean by that? To gain a better understanding of this concept, lets first take a look at what FLOW actually is. Flow can be defined as "a steady continuous stream of something" or "moving steadily and continuously in a current or stream." In our case flow is a steady continuous stream of living your life in joy, ease and adventure, it will feel like you effortlessly floating along in the stream of your life.
What are your values? Have you ever been asked this question? Words start flying around your mind as you think of what is important to you, what standards you have, how you behave and what you see as worthy. Or perhaps your mind draws blank... of course there are so many things that are important to you, but how can you sum it up in a few short words?
Standing in line on the dark streets of Buenos Aires it was Monday night. We joined the queue of trendy Argentinians, hippies and ragamuffin lovers. The recommendation had spread about the percussion drum show of La Bomba de Tiempo at Konex. Consisting of around 17 drums and percussion instruments, the concert has been a raging success with locals and foreigners for the past five years. My friends and I were about to discover why!
There is nothing like the thrill of speed, I'm talking about the fast kind not the drug! I love the feeling of running fast, perhaps my love affair with this is what made me such a successful sprinter. Being lost in the moment. Moving my legs and arms as quickly as they will take me. Relaxing my body into the rhythm and pace. Feeling the coolness of the wind speeding past my cheeks. My hair fly’s behind me and my face is cold. All I can think about is what I can do to go faster. My arms glide back and forth and my legs follow stretching out. My feet gracefully take the weight of my floating body, impacting on the firm surface.
