My name is Makai and I am traveling the world. People ask me why I want to do this all the time and this is my response:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
I am 27 years old and to put it simply, I have decided to live one of my dreams. Traveling offers me an amazing learning opportunity that cannot be taught any other way.
This year is meant to challenge me in every way possible and to allow me to learn things I never expected to learn.
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
To all of my friends and family, I hope to see you along my journey and thank you so much for your support. To all of the new friends I hope to meet, I can’t wait to learn more about you! Don’t just dream the dream, whatever your dream is, make it happen! With love, I start my year’s journey in Santa Marta, Columbia July 13, 2011.
