This blog's for ME

Almost 25 years old, asking my parents if I can sleep in their bed with them. I had thought I was going to be the 25th Prime Minister of Canada. Things had changed. 10 years later, I was still a scared little boy. The time had come to slap myself awake. One Saturday morning, November 19th, 2009, I declared to the world I would be riding my 10 year-old motorcycle from Vancouver, BC Canada to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and back.

The official departure was August 28th, 2010. A group of well-wishers saw me off at 8:03 am.

I arrived in Rio de Janeiro around 6 pm March 1st, 2011.

My return to Vancouver came on July 5th, 2011 about 2:00 pm.

Drug & alcohol abuse, ADD, social anxiety, health, chronic pain, night terrors.

So many concerns. But I am far more interested in this question: Do I have the capacity to make this trip despite all my shortcomings?

My mission: To inspire myself to face my fears, enlighten myself on how all living things can peacefully co-exist, enjoy every moment, and see the world as plentiful and generous.

Go ahead. Call me crazy. Call me anything you like.

I'm out to save my world.

Boxing Day

Most places closed down today here in Caracas, Venezuela except TGI Fridays. found the Tolon Mall. Had my first McDonalds in months and took 45 minutes to hold the puke down...... my heart is seriously working overtime right now. First big wrong turn of the trip had to back track about 3okm god the highway signs or lack thereof but a bit more towards the big city. Stuck in the middle now, deciding whether i should get on the road and out of the city, or make my efforts to find a place to sleep.........ok. done. i'm letting go of my want to be in brazil for my birthday. If it happens great, but it's more important to get some sleep tonight and recover. Need to find a hostel; I've blown $200 in two nights on decent hotels, only to stay in them for sleeping. It was nice to treat but I'll be broke in no time at that pace. speaking of pace.......
