People always say traveling the world is “living the dream”😎. To be honest, it is a lot of times, but as with all things in life…things go wrong. Here are 9 of our traveling mishaps…
Scaly Swimming Buddies
It’s like one minute you’re just 100% living the dream, paddling out on a beautiful day in Costa Rica, in perfect surfing conditions…(doesn’t happen every day)
The next thing you know, a crocodile swims through the waves
2. What’s in the Jungle at Night?
Then,one minute you’re living the dream, 4-wheeling up a volcano in Costa Rica with your brother, having a good time….
The next thing you know, you’re super stuck and it’s getting dark.
3. In Over Our Heads
Another time, you’re living the dream, and you head out to surf with a new friend…
Next thing you know, you’re in 10-15 foot waves, rip tides and can’t find him. He comes walking up from way down the beach a little while later,the ocean stole his GoPro and you all sit on the beach thinkin about life.
4. The Ocean Strikes Back
Or how about living the dream, and you go spearfishing in crystal clear water…
The next thing you know, you’re driving your friend to the hospital because a sting ray jabbed him through his foot!
5. Don’t Try This at Home!
Another time soakin’ it up, living the dream, enjoying seafood (especially fried calamari) at a beautiful fishing port in Croatia…
The next thing you know, your sick for 3 days because you tried to make your own at home!
6. Shocking Weather
One of the best was living the dream, enjoying a sunny morning hike in Costa Rica..
The next thing you know, lightning storms roll in and strike the ground (and your ungrounded house), frying any electronics plugged in. Bye, bye modem!
7. No Way Out?
How about living the dream in Venice, that’s what you do right? See the canals, gondolas, sights and all…
The next thing you know, it’s getting dark and you’ve walked past the same pizza shop 4 times trying to find your way home. #feelinglikeabadtrip
8. Why You Don’t Sleep on the Bus
Another good one was living the dream while visiting a volcano in Costa Rica…
The next thing you know, you realize you took the wrong bus home, are in a town an hour away and need to find the right bus…in the rain, where no one speaks English.
9. Stinging Underpants
Last but not least,living the dream, playing in the waves at the beach…
The next thing you know, you get a stinging slug stuck to your private parts and you gotta get it out right then and there!
When times get tough, that’s when you learn about yourself. Yeah one minute, something bad happens, it sucks…but you figure out how to get through it.
Then the next thing you know…you’re living the dream.
As a wise friend of mine said..Living the dream is not free, you have to earn it.
Go ahead, we’d love to hear a story below about when things were awesome, you were living the dream😎…and then the next thing you know….
