Around The World in 1 Week: An Adventure a Day


My driver today was quite the sage. We chatted as he weaved the car throughout traffic during monsoon-like rain. Singapore was just plain wet.

One thing that came up during our conversation was how to live life fully. The driver shared stories about the passengers he had taken around Singapore during his 20+ year career. One of his stories involved two brothers who set out to experience each day with at least one adventure. The brothers did this while living at home and while on adventures overseas.

That got me thinking. What if I make a commitment to be brave, be reckless, be happy each day. And to experience at least one adventure a day.

In the last 20 years my adventures have taken me to 41 countries and I am still traveling as if I am making up for lost time. I’ve lived in 3 countries, spent almost 5 years of my life overseas, fallen in love a few times, fallen out of love a few times, fallen asleep on beaches in Asia and South Pacific, danced to bonfires, done a lot of crazy stuff and loved every minute of it.

You only live once. So for the next year, I am pledging to live an adventure a day.
