One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I rode a motorbike on the highest motorable road in the world with no fences. It was thrilling and made me realize that I am more adventurous than I think.

Hopping trains while hitchhiking. It was quite thrilling, amazing and scary. Especially watching countless stars in the milky way galaxy while standing in the grainer car, in the night, with my arms wide open. That was something!

Challenged myself to travel to Alaska. it took 52 days, traveled on road(hitchhiking), water(hitching ferry), walked, swam while
staying the nights on couches, roads, forests(while watching out for bears)and ferries. All the way to Deadhorse, Alaska from Missouri.

Seeing the ocean on the ferry to Alaska. it was like its going through a scenery which was not real...it was beautiful.

Stayed homeless for 6 months as a test and an experiment during my Masters. Sleeping the nights in churches, libraries, friends apartments etc. Showering in gym. What did I learn? I don't know.

Jumped into an icy cold lake, right in the middle on mountains.

Did Tandem skydiving without a hitch.
