It was an amazing experience to share my life story with so many travelers at the Road Junky Festival.
In this first part I talk about how I got started traveling, what led me to hitchhike to India, my love affair with Islam and the realities of hitting the road with no money.
Here I talk about almost getting raped in Pakistan, writing Hand to Mouth to India and escaping India on a home-made visa.
Stories of getting a girl out of jail in India and going to teach English in South Korea with a fake diploma.
The story of selling imitation goods in the street in Tokyo and almost going totally over the edge in Brazil before I clawed my way back again.
Many of these themes are explored in more detail in my book, Tales of a Road Junky
