Butt Guns, Chiang Mai, 48+ Hours No Sleep
Travel has become a powerful stimulus for all of the work that I do. Fighting and this current blog has been my vehicle to meeting people from around the globe. It is what ultimately introduced me to a world outside of what was familiar, a tutor to the subject of perspective, a catalyst to opening a mind that was closed since a young age.

My mother followed the blueprint. Finished college, married, had me as a child, bought a house. . . but when I was eight, she left it all and started over. From a woman with a Master’s Degree, a home, and comfort, to cleaning houses in a foreign country, living with another family’s house with her son – all just to get by. She can now be found looking to pin the next country traveled on the map hanging on the wall in her office after getting home from teaching clinical rotations at a Connecticut College.
It is a story I will discuss in more detail in the future, but much like her adventurous spirit modeled, I have picked up and moved, experienced the things no one around me has had the opportunity or blueprint to make into reality.
Although what I am doing has no blueprint, I have collected stories of a basic outline from those traveling around the glove, I have lived the example myself and received a humbling amount of feedback from those picking up and leaving the places and the people that have held them down for years; all simply done by content put into the public eye for use as example.
It is the motivation and reason for a new segment to the website, to my video channel, and to my vision for life. The Limitless Project is not a physical entity, it is an idea, it is a philosophy [A Way of Thinking].
I will spare you from reading more and bring you right into the beginning stages of the journey I am on currently. I hope to bring you all insight on different regions traveled, to give you a deeper insight into my life and personality, and to lead you to the right and wrong places if you plan on heading out to lands I may have previously discovered myself.
Last week I arrived in Chiang Mai, Thailand. About 10 hours North of Bangkok, lies this beautiful city – nested between mountains, a few short hours and 700+ bends of beautiful scenery away from the land of Pai. On my arrival I grabbed my phone and spoke about the 48 hours of no sleep traveling from America, using the butt guns in Thailand, and why I chose Chiang Mai for my first stop:
Seeing the world is something that many say they “wish” they had done.
Something they wish they could do.
Throughout this journey I have met those who quit their jobs. . .
Who made the decision to travel after obtaining Master Degrees in prestigious schools. . .
To leave everything that would ultimately amount to nothing. . .
to pursue passion and fulfillment. . .
Those who left relationships lasting all the way from a few months to 12 years. . .
Those who sold their house. . .
Those who are 18 years old and who are 60 years young. . .
Those who had every excuse, those who had no means of making it happen, but those who made it happen regardless of the circumstances. . .
Those who had everything, but did nothing, and those who had nothing, but created a newly paved path. . .
