Who Am I?
My name is Gilad, a 25-year-old medical student from Israel. Everyone who knows me would tell you that my absolute favorite thing is traveling. When I was just a little kid, I used to travel with my folks a lot. They took me on their journeys through almost every country in Europe – but something was missing…
When I grew older, I realized that the missing part was the adventure. I just got too bored of museums and old city buildings – I wanted something more. As I turned 20, I have decided to go for it. I ordered a flight to Switzerland, rented a car and drove the whole country on my own. Back in Israel, I would have never left my city in a car, but at some point, I had to leap. I wanted to feel master of my own decisions, and that is precisely what I did. That trip was a step forward in building my confidence.
As years past by, I have made more and more challenging trips. Among them was my coast to coast trip in the USA, and the West Highland Way hike in Scotland. Through these journeys and many others, I’ve gained a lot of experience with camping gear and equipment.
Now, I chose to expand that hobby of mine in a different direction, by writing. Once in a while, I will share with you some of my thoughts and experience. I hope that by this, I will be able to inspire some of you to start your adventure!
