- Have you met a cool person while traveling then traveled with them only to realize how crazy they were but you ditched them so it was all good?
- Have you almost died but are still alive to tell about it?
- Have you thought you almost died but didn’t?
- Did you try to buy “contraband” only to have it backfire?
