When I was 17, I was a guest at the Yamaha VIP lounge at the MotoGP in Assen. Valentino Rossi, Yamaha's rider, won, came into the lounge, everyone was celebrating and it was an unforgettable experience. Ever since that day I was hooked and decided 'One day, I want to be part of this.'
10 years later, I was at that same race track, this time working with that same Yamaha team.
What would it be like to be an expert? People would come up to you for advice and be happy to pay for it. Whether it would be for a one-on-one consult, buying your book or purchasing a ticket to your course; if you're an expert, you can make a living. But how do you become an expert?

Spain & Portugal were high on my list, South Africa to escape the European winter maybe, and who knows, maybe when Europe starts to bore me, I’ll go and discover Asia.

And it’s already my second time around here. Welcome to Bulgaria!

It may be our biggest fear; getting a phone call with some devastating news, while you're away travelling. You know it's a risk, you know it could happen, but you just hope for the best and don't spend too much time worrying about it. For me, that phone call came last week.
Co-living is something most people wouldn't consider after they leave college. Sharing everything with others? Little privacy? If you make enough money to live on your own, why would you not? But as a solo traveller, I'd choose co-living over a hotel any time.
Your planning your next adventure, or perhaps you are out somewhere in the world discovering new sights, smells, and sounds. Then you come to a panicked realization: I have lost my passport! Yes, this is bad news. But do not panic! This happens all the time and there are clear guidelines for how to replace your lost or stolen passport.
