Many people are familiar with the expression: "The road less travelled". It refers to travelling off the beaten track, to strange and unfamiliar places. "The life less travelled" refers to living in an unconventional way; approaching life with an open mind and not following the norm that many people are ingrained with.

In Spanish, they say nacer, crecer, reproducirse y morir ("born, grow, reproduce and die"). For many people, this is an astute simplification of the circle of life. But I like to challenge this way of thinking. One's life has the potential to be so much more than certain milestones.

I believe the meaning of life is whatever you decide is important to your life. The time we have on this wonderful, beautiful planet is too short to be living in a box—mentally or physically. I like to experience everything life has to offer: the highs and the lows of life (without the lows, the highs would be boring and diluted).

Life is a beautiful journey and I'm enjoying the ride. This blog explores the adventures I had while travelling the world for over eight years (to over sixty countries).

Oh, the picture of the bus wreck (in the header) was taken at the border of Chile and Bolivia, at Hito Cajon in the Atacama Desert.
