We are all just a product of our environment, but traveling helps us expand out boundaries, let go of inhibitions, and come to a better understanding of life.
... you go somewhere for a certain amount of time, let it be a couple of weeks or three months, you know it's gonna be limited, and then you go back home. If you are on the road for an indefinite amount of time, it's very different. It's not a phase, and you deal with it in a different way. Everything that happens, everything that occurs is part of your life, is your life.
I avoided Tehran. I went to other cities like Isfahan and Yasht and Kerman. ... I find it full of contradictions. In one way I met so many young students that are really worldly thinking and really aware of what their country is made out to be through the media. They took so much time out of their day to drive me to some nice places in the mountains outside the city. And invited me to their house to eat with them and watch them dance and do like social activities. (As other peoples did from other countries during his trip.)
So one day, I tagged along to visit the orphanage with Sean. They were short on resources, couldn’t pay their rent. And the more I got into knowing all these details and how it all worked the more I realised how I couldn’t just walk away. Before I went on my hike we decided to make a short video and post it on my website and ask people to maybe make a small contribution towards this orphanage. And to give it some time, we went on a ten day hike because I really wanted to see Mount Everest with my own eyes. So we took a 30 minute plane ride to the jump-off point for most Everest excursions. I’m sitting here on top of the peak and the panorama is just amazing. This, with its head in the clouds, is Everest. ... As far as oxygen level goes, it’s like 50% left up here. ... And by the time I came back from the hike, round about 1500 Euros had accumulated on my bank account from people that followed my website and wanted to help the orphanage.
And I didn’t wanna fly, as I said earlier, I wanna ride through the world not just skim over it. I wanna you know wear the country, going through it.
I was stationary in Kathmandu for quite a while, I was working on a job. It’s a very poor country, it’s very troubled. So there’s a lot of street kids and I met this Irish guy. He was volunteering at this Nepali orphanage. I mean as Kathmandu continues to grow and prosper and become more accessible to tourism more people are coming into the city from the rural areas in search of better things and quite often they’ll end up living on the streets. Some would have come from the breakdown of the family, some would have maybe one or two parents diseased. Some of the families just are in such dire poverty so they can’t afford to keep them. Social and political factors here in Nepal at the minute aren't so good so there’s a lack of funding going towards these marginalized groups.
