From Low-Fi to High-Fi: Embracing Life’s Adventures

I’ve been low-tech blogging, using a journal and writing wherever inspiration strikes, rather than being tied to technology. So, I decided to transfer from the low-fi to the high-fi, all while sitting in a bar in Vancouver on a well-deserved holiday weekend.

The people I’ve met in the last two years have been incredible. The new friends, connections, and the possibility of seeing them again someday make me happy.

I was thinking about the story “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” the other day and had a sudden realization. I’ve flown around the world more than once, transitioning from looking towards settling down in the Northwest and working in theatre, to now pondering where I can go next, what I will do, who I will meet, and where I will meet them.

“Never stop exploring” might replace my personal motto. Yes, I know it’s a tagline from some outdoor gear company, but hey, it’s a good motto to have. In my life, I’ve shifted from a very region-centric to a global outlook. I like the idea of traveling the world, experiencing new things and places, and just having fun while doing it.

I’ve been pondering a bucket list of places I want to visit before I die. Not that I’m planning to die tomorrow, but who knows what might happen. So far, the places that rank pretty high on the list are all of South America, Antarctica, more of Asia, and all of Africa. Someone asked me the other day what I would do with a million dollars. My answer is simple: pay off my debts and the debts of some other folks I know, pack my things, and head out for the first place on the bucket list. Life is too short to be taken seriously; you need adventure to make your life worth living. I’m not saying that traveling and living out of a backpack is what you should do, but you shouldn’t be 100% comfortable with your life. There should be something to keep you on your toes because, after all, isn’t the point of life to live?

As I sit here, sipping my drink and watching the world go by outside, I can’t help but feel a sense of wanderlust. The world is full of so many incredible places, and I want to see them all. From the bustling streets of Tokyo to the serene beauty of the Swiss Alps, there’s so much out there to explore.

But it’s not just about the places; it’s also about the people. One of the best parts of traveling is meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I’ve made friends all over the world, and each one has enriched my life in some way.

So, as I plan my next adventure and dream of all the places I want to go, I remind myself to never stop exploring. There’s so much out there to see and do, and I intend to experience as much of it as I can.
