Welcome Aussie Rachel!

Screen Shot 2013-06-02 at 10.12.26 PM

Here comes an Australian to join the tour! Rachel is our Aussie UN worker devoted to education. She’ll be coordinating a range of activities at the town parties each night for kids and youth. She’s even helping create a mural in each town with the help of local communities. Welcome Rachel!

Here’s a few things to know about Rachel:

Age you think  you are: It seems to vary actually, but I often feel older

Favorite Country in the World: I could be happy anywhere I’m surrounded by great company

Where would you live if Money was Not an Object: I think I could still be happy anywhere, so long as there’s great company!

Biggest Accomplishment So Far: Creating a tertiary curriculum at 25

Biggest Regret:  Having regrets!

Favorite Movie Star: Oh it’s so cliche, but I’ve always loved Brad Pitt

Would you Go Back and Do Teenage Years over: 17 was wonderful, but I’m happy to be older now and in certain ways, I’m still the person I was at 17 anyway.

What do you Miss The most:  My grandmother’s laugh

Best Memory: I have a feeling that whatever I could possibly write here will soon be topped by the Ride the Future tour…

What Do you Still Want to Accomplish: I’ve been thinking about doing a marathon up the stairs of the Great Wall of China.. Can you imagine that?

What is Your Greatest Fear: I guess it’s probably better not to focus on fears, unless this is serving the important purpose of finding ways to confront them.

What do You Hope for in a Partner: Somebody who inspires me to be the best of myself

Favorite Song of All Time: Tricky question. I visited the Mechai Bamboo School in Thailand today and the students performed John Lennon’s Imagine on their ukuleles for us. It could be my favourite now.

Favorite Singer/Band: So many, but I love especially Lykke Li.

Why Ride The Future Tour:  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain

My Motto For Riding My Scooter Across the US

Except …..I won’t really stop for puking ! The scooter will eventually stop if I faint  ! Can’t think of a better way to die ! But death is highly improbable so no worries !!!
