A WEEK IN THE LIFE:

Having created the popular week-in-the-life series last year, I’ve not yet written about a week in my own full-time traveling life. The week profiled here is far from my average week, but was enough of a full-on adventure that I thought you might enjoy it.

As a quick introduction, I was corresponding with Adventure Aaron while he was in South Africa shooting the first episode of his television series called “Alive”. I gave him a few suggestions, including the world’s highest bungy jump, which certainly helped him feel “Alive”! Shortly thereafter, he told me he was planning episode two in New Zealand, and invited me to come along for a week of adventures as a “featured expert” on the show.

Well, twist my arm. Please enjoy my week-in-the-life of shooting an episode of “Alive”.

Monday

8:00am: None of us slept well in our Auckland hostel. It has nothing to do with the digs, and everything to do with jet lag for Aaron (the producer/host) and Fletcher (the cameraman), and sheer excitement for me.

I take the morning to call my mum for her birthday, and try (unsuccessfully) to log on to the internet. Server problems – hmph!
