Regardless the several years of planning for a one-year field trip around the world, nature has chosen its path.
A sudden polar front with extreme temperatures (-42°C, -43,6°F) hit me by a surprise. The failure of the heating system in a carefully designed 4x4 expedition vehicle gave me no choice but to withdraw from my mission to Alaska.
It was a time for consider my options.
As I was quietly walking around a small lake somewhere in British Columbia late in the afternoon, something stopped me at a wooden fence.
The freezing conditions didn’t help with the shooting, it drastically slowed down the shutter speed of my camera, but it restarted my engine, woke up my body, and reprogrammed my way of thinking.
I felt small but solid and strong as a rock under storm clouds. I felt as calm as a lake in a land of new opportunities.
Dressed like a bear with my reprogrammed cells, I have decided not to listen the wind anymore. Not to fallow the natural fources anymore. I have decided to adjust my sails towards a new unplanned destination, towards Mexico.
In my 38 years of existence, I have accomplished my mission. You see, I won my dreams and traveled the world. I received my universal degree because of my strong will, consistency, learning, adaptation, quick problem solving, and simply not giving up when a stormy days appeared.
“Traveling is challenging and unpredictable, but beautiful.
It opens your eyes, expands your consciousness and changes your way of thinking and perceiving the world. Challenge is a new opportunity for the unknown adventure yet to come. ”
