This project is still very much in the planning stage, but I am thinking a lot about where to go and what route to follow around the world. Currently I am thinking of leaving sometime around spring 2011. I am going to a big tournament with my kids team in Paris in February and was thinking of starting my journey from there. My time frame is something around 6 months, going all the way around the globe and preferably ending in Brasil with some good training and competition there.
I will very much be relying on people inviting me to wherever they train, so hopefully some of you out there can give me some good recommendations. I am looking to train, teach and compete wherever in the world I can. I have no limitations for this trip really, other than I am traveling on a budget, so I need to find cheap places to stay, like hostels, couches or similar. I am not picky and can sleep almost anywhere, so if you live near by a good place to train and have room for me for a while, please let me know!
If you train somewhere and would like me to come by and teach a bit, I will do that gladly as well. I am not asking for money, but some help with transportation, accommodation and food would be appreciated.
Are you planning on competing in an upcoming tournament? Then I might be interested in going too! :) Let me know where and when it is, and I will see if I can make it there. I am interested in competing in BJJ, submission wrestling, wrestling, Judo etc. – just looking for experience.
Hope to hear from someone out there :)

and i’m not afraid to try
and with the odds stacked up against me, i will have to fight
one life one chance, gotta do it right!”
