One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

i have so many amazing experiences...going on the back of a motorcycle through the Black Forest, skiing in the Austrian Alps, getting pulled up to dance on stage at a reggae concert in Munich in front of 1,000 people, zip lining through the Costa Rican rainforest, spending 5 weeks in the South of France with family, couchsurfing on a sailboat off the coast of Croatia, drinking too much at Oktoberfest in Munich, and experiencing both Carnaval and the World Cup '14 in Brazil….but what really gives me joy, is helping others on their trek around the world.
