Living The Adventure
At 17 I hitchhiked across Canada, at 47 across Ireland. I've been chased by a bear on more than one occasion, charmed cobras on the streets of India, backpacked Japan, been blessed by an elephant in Agra, walked on the Great Wall of China, watched the sunrise over Kathmandu and enjoyed momos and chai at the foot of Annapurna. While it's true that life is short, it's also very wide.
