Spent my last day in Bali with none other than Peter Hughes. A survivor of the 2002 Bali bombings and renowned Australian public speaker. The guy's been through more in this life (and technically died 3 times) than you or I could imagine. Speaking with him really puts it all into perspective: Life's short. Live it.His story is inspirational and his attitude and generosity are even more so. An all around fantastic person, I am lucky to have made his, as well as his friend Rippy's, acquaintance. Couldn't have planned a BETTER ending to this epic Australian and Balinese adventure.
As I prepare for the next port of call in this around the world in 90 days tour (hint: Europe!) my first order of business is to pick up a copy of Peter's book, "Back from the Dead". I'm sure it will be just as thought-provoking as hearing his story in person.
Cheers to staying alive, Peter! You inspire us all to do the same.
For more information, following is an article from the BBC that gives a brief overview of his ordeal.
