“Life Begins Where Your Comfort Zone Ends!”

27 04 2012

When embarking on your World Challenge expedition, remember to expect the unexpected. I don’t mean being prepared equipment-wise, I mean being prepared mentally to step outside your comfort zone!

On my World Challenge trip to Ecuador we got to try things we never thought we’d get the opportunity to do (and never thought we’d actually try!). From dancing to traditional Ecuadorian music with performers, to getting a spiritual treatment from a shaman in the Amazon, or standing up while white water rafting, to eating lemon ants (not nearly as gross as you’d think!). Of course, we were all a little apprehensive at first, but in the end they were all awesome experiences we’ll never forget!

So, remember, while safety always comes first, once in a lifetime experiences come second! Don’t be afraid to try new things – in fact, embrace them! You will regret it a lot more if you don’t at least give it a chance.

No matter your destination, you will be given opportunities you should not pass up on. Whether it’s just tasting the local food or taking calculated risks, be ready to try something different!

We weren’t the only ones who ate bugs, check this out! And if you were intrigued by the white water rafting, you’ll love this even more!
