I am overly competitive, even in a mugging.
After a friend and I were mugged at 2 am down an alley in Rome, I chased the mugger down 4 streets in flip-flops determined not to let him be faster.
I caught up with him and a group of men he clearly new and decided it was a bad idea to go any further so went and found my crying friend instead.
I was fuming, not because we had lost our money and bags but because he was faster than me.
In hindsight I have no idea what I would have done if I had caught up with him.

Something called the monkey run in Morocco http://www.theadventurists.com/monkey-run/
In a nutshell, you are abandoned in the middle of the Sahara desert and have to find your way back to the Atlantic Ocean with nothing but your bag/pack and a 48cc child's motorbike. Once the mission is complete, a hike up the Atlas mountains and a week discovering Morocco would be ideal.
what I have to offer - I am a jack of all trades that likes to try new things. This provides a wide knowledge of how to get started in new hobbies from a beginners point of view. I think a lot of people are afraid to start new things as they do not know where to start or feel worried about looking a fool. I can offer advice alongside ridiculous sticky situations I have found myself in when starting new adventures so people realise that everyone goes through difficult teething problems in a new venture and that they do not last forever. I used to be a shy individual but now I throw myself in at the deep end and love a challenge without thinking of the consequences. I think more people need to be like this and just go out and try things that may ultimately make them very happy and they may end up being very good at. Life is full of surprises!
