A public service announcement: The world went crazy over in the States with the missing American girl in the Bahamas. I would like to express to the parents out there that it’s remarkable to me this doesn’t happen more often. For instance, I’m sitting in the guest house common room minding my business looking at my lonely planet book (great travel guide btw). I’m trying to decide what I’d like to do in this random city over the next few days. Three girls arrive. I run away from loud obnoxious valley-girl-language chicks. So they are being typical Americans, and after a few minutes and I do mean a few minutes, these three girls sit down in the common room to have a few local beers. I surmise that they can’t be more than 20 years old after hearing their comments about not being able to drink in their home country, U.S.A. Within 10 minutes, they are surrounded by four local guys who are going to have their way with them. They might as well been hyenas licking their paws eyeing their easy prey. You could just tell by the way they were mockingly laughing at them and talking to each other in their own language. To my surprise, after two beers, one of these girls says, “Wow, the beer here is very strong. I’m starting to get drunk.” She falls face down into the lap of one of her freshly acquainted boys and screams “Let’s go to a strip club!” At this point, I’ve had enough so I head out to take in some of the night time sights. Certain architecture looks amazing when it’s lit up at night. Three hours later, I see the same girl who commented about being intoxicated WITHOUT her friends now and with three of the boys. She is completely naked and standing under a water fountain. The boys are fully dressed. I think to myself, “I hope you are so drunk that you don’t remember what’s gonna happen to you tonight. If daddy only knew how you spent his money today...” I could go on for hours with these kinds of stories.
I have explored 76 countries, no hand holding, no tour guides just a drive to see, smell, taste, experience, and enjoy the earth. I have been on Reality Television and spend much of my time giving back to the community. From a unique perspective of sports, adventure and travel.
