Happiness Plunge – One man’s challenge to us

There are so many inspiring stories and people everywhere I look.

The Happiness Plunge website  is such a location where you learn about a young man who quit his six figure job to be a nomad, volunteering and finding joy by plunging in. He isn’t plunging into expensive swimming pools, he is nomadically travelling, volunteering, and experiencing life in other countries. It is called “slow travelling” – look it up in wikipedia, I am not making it up.  🙂

I found it very educating also when I scratched around and looked in one section where he talked about poverty and how expensive it was being poor. He talked about the lack of garbage collection in the country he was visiting and writes about it.  Read this interesting article called – The World is My Garbage Can 

I have never been to Costa Rica, and may never get the chance so I enjoyed seeing the flowers, bugs, bamboo, and reading more about the beauty of that country. check it out here for pictures and even video! 

I hope you enjoy reading about Adam’s inspiring journey, and share it with someone else!

what is the happy nomad tour
