Hi, this is Jody.
I recently slowed Riley down long enough to ask him a few questions about life after the trip. I thought you might enjoy seeing and hearing directly from him. Here is a short, little over four-minute video of Riley sharing his thoughts, then keep reading for a little more fun from Riley stuff…
What are you listening to?
- Jack Johnson
- John Mayer
- Arctic Monkeys
What are your reading?
- The Way of Zen by Alan Watts
- The Art of Happiness by Dalai Lama
- On the Road, The Dharma Bums and The Subterraneans by Jack Kerouac
What has been filling your time?
What is next for you?
“In addition to all of the above, I finished all of my required high school classes in order to graduate in June. I am taking a Gap Year before heading off to college. My plans are still being finalized, but I may be spending some time in California doing some acting work and odd jobs, saving up my money and then heading off to South America to re-visit a few areas and explore countries I haven’t seen yet. I am also going to be connecting with some of the friends we made while traveling. My intention is to immerse myself in the culture, learn Spanish, volunteer where ever I can, busk a little, work at hostels and take some college classes online.”
