This is not my beautiful house!
This is not my beautiful wife!
Well.... how did I get here?!
"I won an island in Panama..."
Every journey starts with an idea. My idea was to become the first person to visit every country in the world without flying. One day that idea became reality.
I officially finished the journey at the end of January 2013 and by the summer of that year I was already ready for my next adventure, and so I signed up to be a contestant on a Samsung-sponsored survival show hosted by Les Stroud.
And guess what? I won.
The prize was $100,000 towards an island adventure of my choice. Thus began The Road To Jinja Island.
But before becoming the lord and master of my very own island, my girlfriend and I ran around Belize, Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras on what we called The Ruta Maya.
We then travelled south to Bocas Del Toro, Panama and embarked on an adventure living off-grid on a tropical island paradise I named Jinja Island.
