A Series of Fortunate Meetings

My nomadic lifestyle has allowed me some cool experiences where I have been able to make new friends in different places but aslo it has allowed me the good fortune re-meet them, as it were, in different locations. This page is dedicated  to these sometimes coincidental, sometimes planned, sometimes lucky moments.

Before a lot friends start wondering why they aren’t on this page, I’ll clarify. Only friends I’ve met in three or more countries get a mention here, otherwise there would be too many stories to tell.
