You're probably wondering why I've opted to use the word 'NAKED' in my title - let's be honest, it caught your eye. The real reason is quite literal, in September 2012 I was on a mission to find my true home - a place I've never known. I thought, why not try paradise on for size? While in the El Yunque rain forest of Puerto Rico, my rental car was the victim of a local smash-and-grab robbery gang. The thieves stole everything from me, all of my money, camera equipment, passport and clothing. Basically, they stole the clothing off my back. I was forced to return to part of my remaining family and have been recovering since.
While insurance is thankfully taking care of most of my personal losses - they do not cover my entire savings that was taken. Therefore, "Naked, hijacked and in search of home" is my plea for your aid in helping me to continue my search.
With your gracious contributions, I will return to the land of my ancestries in Europe and continue forward on my quest of life-fulfillment. My goal of $3,000 is enough to sustain my frugal way of nomadic-living for about two months. Although, it would be brilliant to reach a little higher for the sake of extending time, photography equipment, safer accommodations and inner-country travel, but I'm up for the challenge of hustling while I'm abroad.
Thank you for your precious time and heartfelt thoughts - you are giving a fractured life a chance to hope once more.
