Life = Subject to Change
I am back from the Asia segment of the 2014 Wandering Capitalist trip to raise money for BUILD – Great Boston. Yes, I decided to break the trip up into two halves…Asia, just completed, and then Isreal & the Middle East. The plan is to be in Tel Aviv for New years Eve (hey, that rhymes..) in order to tour that region of the world while raising money for BUILD. It is just serendipity that I am not in Israel at this moment during this most recent Isreal invasion into Gaza. Bullet dodged.
Here is the travel map of my trip just completed:
Some stats on the trip were:
75 days long (by luck, I found this to be an ideal length)
8 countries visited.
26208 miles traveled (fyi: give me this one brag – earth circumference = 24901 miles).
27 different beds over the 75 days (yes, I be move’en).
343 mile walked (4.6 miles per day) which means $3355 donated to BUILD.
67 overall donors for a total of $18939.58 raised for BUILD – Greater Boston. Thank You!

Doing things in parallel is good. I had a BLAST, did some business, and raised some money for a great organization providing much needed work for the future of OUR country.
The campaign continues thru February 2015… hitting the road again New Years Eve/Tel Aviv.
Your support and friendship is the best.
kaawp khoon khaap.
P.S. – the first one to post what language I just said “thank you” in gets a tee shirt. Hey Now!
HINT: this is from my favorite country out of the 8.
Sounds like a good trip so far. Harry and my guess on the language for thank you is Thai.
