So far, I have met 2 travelers, Janine and Nina. I went hiking with each of them.
(My goal is to hike with travelers, or anybody else. Anybody is welcome to go hiking with me.)
Yes, I am documenting my hike life.
Take a picture of hiking buddy saying, "Do a pose or something. Be you." Post it on my IG account. Then, write a paragraph description about hiking buddy. (Photo and description shown below.)
How did you meet Janine and Nina? One of my good friends met them on Couch Surfing. (I almost typed, "Crowd Surfing.") Then, he introduced them to me.
What is Couch Surfing? It is a phone app or website, where you can meet travelers around the world. Also, you can stay at any free lodging spot from a local host.
For instance, it goes with the Golden Rule saying, "Do unto others as they would do unto you." (Biblical rule in Matthew 7:12.)
What do you mean? Once I start traveling, I can visit Janine from Germany, and Nina from Switzerland. They can show me around their hometown. Also, they can introduce me to their friends. (The connection expands.)
Let's talk about Janine and Nina!
They are different in their own way.
Also, meeting travelers, such as Janine and Nina, have made me be myself (or authentic.)
How, so? No need to impress anybody. First and foremost, continue on to listen, and connect.
Also, it has made me realize that I must always be myself to everybody. If you do not like me, it is fine. (I am not trying to be Mr. Popular.)
What else have you learned from Janine and Nina?
Do not be harsh on myself. (One of my good friends told me this as well.)
When I am around with Janine and Nina, they are very calm, patient, and relaxed. Also, they have reminded me to always live in the moment. (Be stress-free.)
Again, anybody is welcome to go hiking with me.
Feel free to contact me.
