Episode 037: Near Death in Thailand – Part 1

“… and I feel like I belong kind of everywhere and nowhere at the same time.”

This week’s guest is Dale from Gopher-Baroque. He has visited over 30 countries and we’re going to talk about some of those travels in today’s episode; including the time he almost died in a Thai hospital!

“I’ve found that the universe does really interesting things. If you ask the universe for help and guidance and it gives it to you but not necessarily in the way you expect.”

We also talk his upcoming 1,500+ mile kayak trip he’ll be taking with last week’s guest, Dell Hambleton, for her documentary about the Trail of Tears. Other topics discussed are the websites he uses to help plan his travels, where some of his favorite places have been, and what he feels is the most important thing in life.

“I’ve found that that’s the most important thing in life. It’s not the stuff we have. It’s not the money we make. It’s not the titles we have. It’s not the accumulation of wealth, or how many cars we have in the garage, or how many homes we own. It’s about the experiences and the people in your life.”
