It's redemption time...
Getting cancer sucks.
It sucked the day I found out I had it. It sucked the day I had to tell my mates.
And it sucked when, after 200 days of treatment, a curious cleaner came into my hospital room to ask “why have you been in hospital so long?” Proving he didn’t just sweep up garbage.
But sweep aside feelings too.
But when it was all said and done, travel was there to put all the pieces of my broken body and mind back together.

Imagine walking into a restaurant and seeing a gorgeous woman with curves for days. You stand beside her, she lifts a spicy Italian sausage to her mouth and you watch her swallow it like a duck.
She dabs the corner of her mouth with a napkin then consumes another sausage. You know the signs. You’ve seen it all before. So you growl with confidence, “I see you like sausage, you want to come home with me?”
She pauses. Then throws hot sauce into your eyes. She screams “I HAVE A BOYFRIEND”. You start to cry.
You can live that life.
Or…you can skip that entire humiliation using Tinder.
And here’s how you do it to find mates, dates and one-night stands.
