Ronei Rodrigues here, 24, ex accounting auditor of 2 Bigfour’s companies!
Involved into capitalism for a long time, I decide break it for while and experience the other side of life. Breaking what the society imposes as fully truth and living to be happy without any labels. I decided do not care about brands, about fashion, about being fit somewhere. I decided to live my life as money was no object (of course I do still need money to live, I became, for a while, an anticapitalist and not a damn fool). I decided to do what make me happy despite everything else. Is it easy? You're a foolish if you think so. Go against the "normal, natural and common" imposed by the society is quite complicated and complex. You must be strong and careful. You’re even going to hurt people you love the most. Is not everyone who has an open minded to understand what you are going to do!
I've been considered crazy, insane, foolish, damn idiot and so on, but I also have been considered courageous, fighter, human being, hippie and so on. Whom should I believe? I must believe myself. Each person has your own experience, believes, truths and conceptions of life even though many people are involved in a system what makes them all the same. They lose their identity, their originality, their truths and believes. I've lost it once and I've found it back.
I figured out that is more important the people we meet instead the places we go.
So, this "damn fool" human being here is going to travel through South America believing in people, giving them a trust vote once more (forever). I’m going to travel, mainly, with their help.
My aim is show to whom it may concern that people are reliable, does not matter where they are (Europe, America, Africa, Asia and Oceania) and also that life is to be lived as you desire and not to follow somebody’s else conception.
In couple days I'm going to travel through South America walking and hitchhiking. I know that's a bit dangerous travelling like this. So, I've provided myself with a house (tent), a mattress (thermal foam bed roll), a blanket (sleeping bag), cutlery (pocket knife and pocket multitool), umbrella (waterproof and windproof jacket), clothes, some medicine, a notebook, a backpack to put everything inside, a car to move (my legs) and fuel (water and food). I’m going to do it with an open heart and an open mind and God leading my journey.
I’M NOT TELLING YOU TO FOLLOW MY IDEAS, I’M JUST TELLING YOU MINE! I’M SHOWING YOU MY CONCEPTION OF LIFE, THAT MIGHT CHANGE SOONER OR LATER.
P.S.: Special thanks to my friends Fred Brasil and Ana Falcão who convinced me to create this blog. This blog is on, thanks them.
