Hey there! :)

For those of you who don't know me too well, yet - my name is Brock.
Back in June of 2016 - I quit my western lifestyle in the United States to travel the world without an end-date.

My goal?
To meet local people around the world and to experience the local culture - all while sharing these stories with the rest of the world via YouTube.

My Beliefs:
- I believe that we should all live and let live.
- I believe that giving is almost always more rewarding than receiving
- I believe that we should only judge people by their character and their kindness
- I believe that time is the most valuable commodity - and that spending it with another person is so amazing
- And despite how the mass-media portrays the world around us - I choose to believe that this world is full of kind and caring people who simply want the same thing as you and I - peace in the world.

Since I started traveling, I have had some of the most amazing experiences around this world!

- Lived in a small slum fishing village (Puerto Princesa, Philippines)
- Spent a day with homeless children near the beach (San Jose, Mindoro, Philippines)
- Taught English for several months in a small town (Hong Ngu, Vietnam)
- Fed a homeless family for X-mas which brought the mother to tears (Manila, Philippines)
- Caught rides from strangers (Rajasthan, India)
- Met 150 people in a fishing village (Gujurat, India)
- Explored a river village with local people (Siem Reap, Cambodia) 
- Swam with village children (Kampot, Cambodia)
- Saved from being eaten by a crocodile by village children (Kampot, Cambodia)
- Lived with a local family for almost 3 months (HCMC, Vietnam)
- A man closed his coffee shop to show me around his town (Samut Songkhram, Thailand)
- Invited to play Cricket in a slum with local people (Mumbai, India)

To be honest, I could provide so many more examples of interacting with local people. I simply live for these interactions and sharing them with the rest of the world!

Unfortunately, though, I need someones help
Up until now, my travels have been 100% self-funded. My bank account has been decreasing daily for - quite some time. Scary stuff. And because of this, I literally don't know how long I can continue traveling and sharing content on my channel. We all know that traveling the world isn't cheap ✈️🌍 (visas, food, flights, trains, busses, hotels...etc)
I am hoping that there are a few amazing humans around the world who appreciate culture-exchange enough to help keep this channel alive! 🙏🏼

Thank you!
I thank you so much for taking the time to read this. And a special thanks to those who are able to contribute to this journey! It means more than you may think! 😇

- You just paid for one night in a hotel! Currently where I am traveling, most hotels are around this price. I have stayed in hotels as cheap as $5 and sometimes up to $25. The average cost seems to be around $15. Thank you for allowing me to sleep inside tonight!

- I will bring you IN TO my Patron livestream with everyone to see you (optional). Here you can ask me a question or two...or even tell me something - while everyone else is watching.

Meet, Greet, and Travel!
$500 or more per month 0 patrons
- You will come and JOIN me in my next video! This is literally the ULTIMATE Patreon/YouTube/Travel Experience. (I've never even heard of this kind of thing before)


How it works:

If you pledge at least 1 month at this price point, you will be invited to fly and meet me in the country that I am in and we will travel for at least one day together. This day will be just like all of my other videos. It will be spent hanging out with local people or exploring an area full of local people. Once the day is finished, the video will be edited and uploaded to YouTube just like all of my other videos. The only difference is that YOU will be in the video with me.


*Benefits: you will get to see how I film, you will learn how to travel more like a local, you will experience culture on a much deeper level than you would if you stayed in a tourist area, you may be seen by thousands or even tens of thousands of people on YouTube.


*Things to keep in mind: 1) You are responsible for all flights/hotels/visas and such to get to the meeting point in the country that I am in. 2) This is not a platform to advertise/promote your business. I just want your kindness and fun personality on camera :)


*Important note: If you are seriously interested in this, please send me a message on social media first (FB or Instagram) to discuss where I am currently at in the world, or which country I will be going to soon. This will give you time to book your flights to meet me. We can also discuss what kind of activity interests you the most. We can try to plan accordingly.
