“I got to surf waves in Mexico and Chile that I had read about in magazines since I was a kid. I hiked a 6088m peak in Bolivia and snowboarded down a fjord in Norway. I saw the midnight sun in Finland and wildlife in North America that I’d only ever seen in National Geographic. I took a small sailing boat from Panama to Colombia and got to spend a few days in the San Blas Islands. We moored our boat in between islands miles from civilisation and snorkelled in the most amazing underwater cave systems with thousands of fish, turtles and sharks. Some of the best things I have experienced are watching people who seemingly have nothing, yet live happier lives than a lot of people in developed countries who have all the opportunity in the world.”
… what am I doing in South Ealing?
Jake over at fearinenglish has interviewed Sammy Gigger, a chap he met while travelling. He’s from my home town in South Australia, Adelaide, bodyboards and has a serious wanderlust. More importantly he’s put his money where his mouth is and actually seen the world.
I had my taste of it in Australia, but this just made me want so much more. Go check out the interview!
