- 2.I left with 3 USD, back in 1999, from LIMA around of 2 months, to the andean highlands. Adventure, black magic and risk, learned on safety and power based issues on the road. ( I will ground in 2000 a travelers club, in colab. inspiration with my travel community and will invite other travelers to join me as volunteers, caring for traveler security and safety issues as well collaboration with local organizations and culture, while on the road, street children, arts, culture, communication for development, training, technology transfer, tourism and development)

- 8. After being threatened twice, and attacked, eventually for my peace activism and sustainable development work, or maybe for my beliefs and practices, (Germany, Russia), and after key customers and students did create a debt of about 30000.00 EUR not paying for valuable services, money i would invest to pay my debts and buy land in Russia and Asia, i end up on the road again with 3 USD. Landed in an airplain back to my base cam in Finland, where i will start up a new peace and culture campaign.
- 9. Waiting for residence permit since November 2014, i started an education business online dedicated to empower peace, family, culture, life care and heritage.
Do you think my trip was fun?
I got a burned out in 2011, after my second divorce in 2012 German inmigration asked me to leave the country even i was living there since 2007, i needed 15 days more in order to receive a permanent residence our lawyer missed the count and planned the divorce date 15 days to early..or was my wife that wanted me away? end of 2012, december i had all my Germany companies placed on hold or down, with a burned out plus divorce plus residence permit on hold, received a business visa. I had at that point 3 possible locations to create a second home base: Belgium, Austria and Finland. On the road… Extreme business and lifestyle travel! The road is fun but also a real life adventure.
It has been fun, while there are many adventures i will only tell in my diary and some articles on spiritual archeology, extreme sports, love and X-files i would like to add here for you to enjoy. ( The Odin Theta Diary has been inspired on my spiritual archeology work, prime culture. http://prime-archeology.luisdanielmaldonadofonken.info ; and here some X-files and the Dolomites adventure as example, or all about love on the road )
What i did learn about? Well, you can read all i learned along my travels about my self and life www.luisdanielmaldonadofonken.info
or MORE… on all i have been working at in my BIOGRAPHY.
People might think one must focus only in one thing to be good, but it isnt true, on the road you learn that multiple talents skills and abilities or wisdoms are more valuable for saving your life than just specialization, which after so many years modern culture complex life and market proof to be the right attitude, business, state and professionals must now go the same path, lifestyle travelers learned on the road.
- Use an umbrella. It is the most practical tool not only for the rain but also for the sun. Only wind make it non practical, for example a sand storm. Not useful if acid fire rain or volcanic ashes…. More… ask the next umbrella store or ask LUIS for one.
- No drugs, alcohol, sugar, sex, non tangible love. Avoid all kind of substances that empower delusional perception, self-desempowerment, road abandon, lack of the decision making ability, lack-ability of being present in the moment. Love yourself, love the world, keep your heart into divine love, the path of action.
