An avid traveller whose goal is improving the lives in children as they do the same in return. The Thai proverb "สุภาษิตไทย" meaning quite literally that the burnt child dreads the fire. Less morbidly, we learn from our mistakes; experience is the best teacher.
Get out there, make mistakes, explore, ask questions, get involved, be out of your comfort zone. You will never fully live an exciting life unless you do so.
