What does it mean to be an explorer? Should I be in hiking boots and backpack, trudging up the side of a mountain or through a jungle? For me, the explorer persona isn’t just related to travel. It’s true, I do quite a bit of travel and my Customers and my passions have introduced me to people and places all over the world. But for me exploration is centered on curiosity.
Things that are new and different excite me. I love learning new things and experiencing new situations. Feeding my curiosity is like brain food. If I’m in a new place and someone asks if I’d like to try a Hrebograkin, I don’t ask, “What’s in a Hrebograkin.” Instead I say, “Of course I’d like to try a Hrebograkin! What’s the best way to have a Hrebograkin?” I’ll find out later what it is.
